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

Bought a bottle at Rutlands Farmers Market following the buzz. Probably one of the best doubles i've tried in a while. a lot of things going on in this great beer but they all blend smoothly in a very well balanced and sexy looking beer. Great aroma, great taste, great looks. Bravo guys!

Picked this up at Woodstock Hops N' Barley, in Woodstock Vermont. 32oz Growler fill for $14.99 + $5 deposit for the glass.

Pours a dark golden orange, with three fingers of fluffy white head that dissipates to a light layer of foam.

The aroma is very clean, with lots of citrus and some grassy notes.

Very smooth, with a moderately bitter finish. Leaves a grassy flavor.

Overall a very good beer. I look forward to trying more from this brewer.

Excellent, a bit pricey, but well worth it.

Bought this beer for the brewery on their release party and just popped it last night.

Pours a off white head, laced well throughout the beer.

Well balanced, Vermont style Imperial India pale ale.

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.
