As far as Imperial IPA's go, Foley Brothers goes above and beyond with Prospect. A light sessionable hoppy taste consumes the pallette, but remains in your hand after the first sip as its not TOO heavy. If its not already, i see Prospect becoming another staple in the Vermont craft beer scene. A local's ale of choice.

Foley Brothers Prospect is a tad bit over priced, but easily one of the best DIPAs in Vermont. Get it if you can.

Very drinkable double with tons of biscuit upon first sip/ sniff turning into a dank earthy yet smooth fruity spruce-like finish.

This very well might be the best Double IPA that I have had to date. I really thought that the balance was spot on. Be careful, this baby packs a punch. The alcohol is hidden so well, you might drink this beer quicker then you normally would with a 9% abv. beer. Then you do the same with a second 16 oz can because this beer is simply delicious. If this beer is any indication what the Foley Brothers can do; I just might move to Vermont!

Great beer, bought fresh and drank fresh..... poured a medium yellow with nice head and lacing ..... smells tropical stone fruit with dank undertones .... very little bitter at finish with hop taste lingering on pallet ..... you’d never know this is a 9% Beer ... extreme crushable and highly dangerous ..... if you can find this ....:GET IT

Certainly one of the best beers I've tasted. Picked up a fresh four-pack in early January at Hops N' Barley in Woodstock, VT (which is certainly the best beer store I've ever been to). Quintessential New England IPA executed at the highest level. Appearance is opaque orange with thick white foam. Highly concentrated aromas of citrus fruits, passionfruit, lychee, and peach, balanced by dank, leafy herbaceousness. Very soft on the palate, extremely balanced and clean, with a long, menthol-inflected finish. One of the proprietors described this as "probably the best IPA coming out of Vermont." He didn't lie.

Pours a slightly hazy golden with appropriate foamy white head. Nice citrusy aromas of pineapple, some lemon, pine, earthy dankness. Nice and hoppy, loads of citrus fruits: pineapple, lemon, some mango. Carbonation is spot on. Overall this is a nice DIPA, loads of tropical fruits and dank hoppiness, not too boozy for it's 9% abv.

Pours a hazy yellow gold with a half finger bubbly head that settles out quickly

Aroma is bright with citrus and pineapple notes.

Taste is similar with a little alcohol burn behind it. low malt and bitterness

Feel is very soft

Great NEIPA. Not too familiar with Foley Brothers but this speaks well of them
