You kNow I’m OK with it but it’s not driving me crazy I like the style And I wish I liked this beer more. I think it’s fresh but I wish I had a date on the cam to make it certain.
L: Drinking from the ken and the Can looks nice
S: Not an overly strong aroma. May be a little bit sweet. Hard to characterize
T: Kind of boozy and hot and not much else coming through. Some bitterness at the end. Not terribly enjoyable
F: Smooth and hot.
O: Not worth another try in my book. I hope you enjoy it more!

16oz can into a teku. Another of those Breweries whose can proclaims "drink this beer fresh", but then doesnt bother to date their cans.

Looks pretty good in the glass. Hazy dull orange body. Bright white head retains in excellent form throughout, leaving very good lacing.

Aroma a mixture of dull fruit and dankness.

On tasting, abv quite apparent, so significant warmth. Quite sweet and boozy, but a good hop prescence and some dankness.

Mouth close to full, finish a little drying, also sweet and boozy.

Overall, pretty good drink. At times you wonder if it's a bit long in the tooth, but then the dank dry bitterness kicks in.

L -- Golden orange with near total clarity and two fingers of off-white head produced with moderate pour. Good retention and lacing
S -- Definitely the most aromatic Foley Bros offering I've had to date, and also one of the most quintessential. Every Foley Bros hoppy beer has this distinct fresh rubber/new tire/new sneaker smell that is very pronounced. Also getting apricot, pineapple, peach, mango
T -- Yellow grapefruit, pineapple, unripe mango, green grass
F -- Medium+ mouthfeel, medium carb. Very drinkable for the ABV and not too sickly sweet like many TIPAs
O -- Definitely one of my favorites from Foley Bros. Wish they would start dating their cans, although I know this is fresh

86/100

16 oz. can.
10.0% abv.
No date, but just released last week.
Moderate pour yields a 5/4 inch white head over a bright golden body with sticky lacing. Nose of pine, slight tropical fruit, and slight citrus. Taste is mostly pine sap with a tiny bit of malt sweetness that counteracts the heavy pine bitterness which does take over at the finish. Some people don't love the maltiness in Triple IPAS, but I don't mind it at all. Some people don't love pine bitterness, but I don't mind it at all either. Nice feel and overall, I'd recommend this to anyone, just for the experience of a well made TIPA.
Cheers!!!

Quick: Pours a light orange gold with a decent haze and about a thumb of head. Head breaks quickly leaving a small collar, and some good lacing. Smell is tropical fruits, led by pineapple. There is a background grassyness that takes away from the aroma. Taste is much like the nose, but I find the grassyness comes through a bit more. This does no affect the taste of the beer too much. Feel is middle with average carbonation. I get a touch of booze on the finish. Not a bad beer, this one may have been a little long in the tooth though. I would like to have fresher, if I can get it.

My my... that has quite the nose to it. There's a bit of grass to it, but also some pulpy, fleshy citrus. Likewise, in the taste. It doesn't feel like a 10% IPA, but it certainly does feel thick, substantial, and like it cannot be taken lightly.

Very good - a pleasant surprise!

Poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a semi-glossy burnt dark yellow to almost paper orange color with a slim cap of a little white foamy head. A little bit of a soapy clean film look with a nice speckling was noticed around the glass.
The aroma shaped a nice arrangement of sweet to danky grassy to crisp pulled onion, semi-sweet citrus, juniper needles, fresh melon/honeydew and a light peach-like fleshiness.
The flavor was somewhat sweet with the pulled onion, citrus, melon/honeydew and peach character thing and then seemed to briskly push in some dried sweet clean cracker malt. Subtle sweet aftertaste of the peach and cracker malt with a nice crispness of the melon/honeydew sweetness.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fine sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt fine/on par for the style. ABV felt as projected without flaw - no boozy "heat."
Overall, a mighty fine DIPA done by our guys in Brandon, Vermont. Super glad they sent bottles up to the Burlington area for me to have a chance on this one.

Poured from the bomber into a willi becher.
Pours a lightly hazy glowing medium blonde with one finger of head that drops away.
Aromas are a lot of citrus and lemon peel.
Flavors are quite different to my palate. Lots of tropical fruit and pink grapefruit.
Mouthfeel was a touch thin but really good.
Overall, as far as Triple IPAs go, not hot, low bitterness, low alcohol, tons of flavor. Great beer!

Pours a light golden yellow with a very nice white, soapy head. Aroma is explosive. Tons of tropical fruits with pineapple leading the pack. Actually, it's more like a candied pineapple.

Taste is unbelievable with the tropical fruits front and center. A little sweet (probably because of the 10% ABV), but not off-putting by any means. Drinks like an 8% double IPA.

Mouthfeel is medium plus with very little bitterness. It's incredibly smooth. This is a dangerous, dangerous beer at 10%. I dare say that I haven't been this giddy about a new beer in a while. This is fantastic! I can only hope it sees regular rotation.
