Poured this beer from a bottle, nice head retention.

Smell a lot of citrus, a little bit of pine as well.

This beer is really yummy, not the most hoppy IIPA I have ever had, but very well balanced.

Carbonation is right on, alcohol is right where it needs to be for this 16.9 oz serving.

Thanks Foley Brothers, for another successful beer.

Great beer from a fairly new brewery, fresh and lives up to what they say about it.

Simply orgasmic !!! guys this is a badass beer. agressive initial hoppy punch which smoothly disappears as a heavenly and pleasant taste takes in. Balanced and soo drinkable. this beer is 90 ibu's and above 8.0 ABV. you would never tell. great job!!

Another amazing brew from the Foley Brothers company - they need to hurry up and distribute in NY! Just the right balance of hops to malt for me, I can't get into the fancy language but it's a damn good beer.

Huge shout out to my buddy markro1979 for tossing this one my way because he thought I would like it...well, I did!

a - crisp murky amber orange...glows like a gem when held to the light. Pours with a massive frothy IPA head into my batch 002 TB 22oz snifter. Lace riddled the glass like bloody walls in a horror movie after a kill scene. Really attractive.

s - boom! Ripe tangerine with soft citric orange notes. Super sticky but remains fruity and not resinous. Very powerful yum!

t/m/o - there must be something in the water in Vermont. Beer from that area...especially IPAs are just magical and this is no exception. Big lush floral citric tangerine blast on your taste buds, but with a refreshing body that you can gulp and savor. It really is a masterpiece.

This is one of the best Double IPAs on the market. Highly drinkable with great balance and loads of hops.

I had this beer in the tasting room at Foley Brothers in Brandon.

The Fair Maiden is a dark golden orange, with fluffy white head.

The nose is is very pleasing, with a good amount of citrus and a bit of grass.

Taste is very smooth, with a satisfying slightly bitter finish.

This is my new favorite IIPA

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.
