This is really amazing. Pale gold body with a faint haze, tall white head that left ample lace behind... Aromas are citrusy, floral, bright, grassy, and clean... Taste brings sweet and bright citrus impressions together - pineapple, grapefruit, orange, and lemon; herbal and floral around the edges... Light and softly carbonated across the palate...

Another tasty offering from Foley Bros that shares a lot in common with Prospect, but a slightly more bitter flavor profile. Aromas have the same rubbery hop character as Prospect, which straddles the line between pungent and fragrant. Like with their other offerings, the pricing is pretty high

84/100

I'm drinking a Fair Maiden right now and I feel blessed that I'm less than 30 minutes from Foley Bros brewery. I'm a Heady Topper lover, but Fair Maiden has now moved to the top spot on my list! I've had this over the past year, and it's simply great.

This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a semi-hazy bronzed golden color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Clingy messy lacing roams around the glass. The smell starts off with sweet grapefruit pulp. Light melon, and a little bit of honeydew blend into citrus rind nicely, sticky sweet with a balanced bitterness about it. The taste was moderately sweet with a bitterness wanting to balance and somewhat does. Light sweet melon-like aftertaste runs into a sweet refined finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body. Sessionable to an extent, somewhat, carbonation runs good for a DIPA. Somewhat bitter with a nice creaminess strolling about. Overall, for the most part, its a nice DIPA that I would love to have again.

This ain't no citrusy New England IPA. Powerful candied floral flavor. Different from any other IPA I've had to date. Not a fan.
