Poured from a 16 oz can; no date noted. Pours a light yellow with thick foamy head that slowly recedes and produces moderate lacing. Slightly sweet with decent hop bitterness. Solid; seek.

I’m a big Foley Bros fan, and no doubt this is quite good. But it’s not my fave of theirs; there’s a little bit of complexity lacking for me. All the flavors seem muted. It’s a fine B+ which in the larger world is fine but IMO Foley produces A/A+ beers above this one. Drinkable and glad I snagged this but don’t need to buy more.

16oz undated can.

Pours clear yellow with a chill haze. Moderate head with average retention. Pear, pineapple, peach, and grapefruit in the nose. Medium bodied with a crisp mouthfeel. Bright citrus on the palate with zero malt and a firm bitterness. Pineapple skin, pear pulp, and grapefruit zest. Finishes dry with a lingering bitterness and pithy citrus.

Foley does it again. This brewery, in my estimation, can do no wrong. I though Fair Maiden was their best but after sampling this one.....wow. For a 7% ipa, this baby delivers big time. Damn, I need to stay overnight in Brandon. Foley Brothers & Red Clover brewery....in a small town? Get outa here.....

16 oz. can.
Moderate pour yields a 1 and 1/2 inch white head over a hazy golden body with some lacing. Nose of tropical fruit, sweet citrus, and a bit of pine. Taste follows nose quite smoothly with a finish of slight citrus pith bitterness. Nice feel and overall, another fine IPA from the brothers to seek out.
Cheers!

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a quickly dissipating finger’s worth of white foamy head. Thin spread out lacing clings around the glass nicely. The aroma starts off with sharp sweet mango, crisp sweet pineapple, and traces of dried pine needle. Bitter lemon rind comes in underneath for the balance. The flavor proceeds upon all of the previously mentioned aromas capturing the tropical fruits of it up front with a sweeter side controlling the bitterness. The aftertaste is the same and leaves fairly quick along with it’s finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation feels good. Bitterness units seem just harsh enough hitting my tongue appropriately. Overall, Foley Brothers always brewing up the great IPA’s. It’s what they do best.

With immense thanks, respect, and debt to jhavs for this gem!
Poured from a 22oz bomber into a Bruery Tulip glass.
Somewhat hazy golden to orange in color. Fluffy white head pops up 2+ fingers high, and slowly retreats to a consistent half inch layer on top. Decent lacing. Clears up a bit after a minute or so.
Smells wonderful. Nothing overpowering. Nice ready notes play along with some orange zest, some pine, and a smooth yeastiness.
Taste is even better. Definitely citrus to pine up front. Yeast stays in the game initially, and then retreats a bit. Malt is ready and ever-present. But more complexity comes through in the citrus. Sweet orange juice, floral lemon blossoms, some earthy tropical fruit of unknown origin, some pine, and then even a bit of fresh grass. Really quite good.
Mouthfeel is full enough, but there's a creaminess to it that is too good. Here the yeast seems to be part of the "flavor" in the feel, if that even makes sense.
Overall, I find this to be outside the box a bit, and I think I like it more because of that.
Thanks jhavs!
