Good mix of citrus fruit and a very interesting color. That being said, I didn’t love this beer. The flavor for some reason tasted a bit off to me - or just something I didn’t love.

From a 2-week-old can, pours a bright, hazy yellow-orange. Smells has tropical and citrus fruit, along with earthy herbs. Taste follows. An excellent example of the style.

Can from Jeff.
Hazy lemon yellow with a bubbly white head that recedes. Aromas of citrus grapefruit earth and grass with hints of bread and a light alcohol note. Lingering astringency coats my palette long after every sip. I'm bored with the genre.

16oz can dated 8/19/20.

Pours cloudy yellow with an inch of white fluff. Moderate retention and lacing. Pineapple, grape, and candied mango in the nose. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Juicy tropicals on the palate with minimal malt or bitterness. White grape, pineapple, and peach fuzz. Finishes juicy and a bit dank.

Canned a week ago.

L — Golden orange haze in the glass with two fingers of dense white head produced with moderate pour. Good retention and lacing
S — Orange creamsicle, soft tropical fruits, light bready malt, coffee berry
T — Largely follows the nose. Not the most intense or complex, but I think that’s a good thing here
F — Soft, creamy, and fluffy. Love the mouthfeel from the yeast that they use at Foam
O — A great flagship DIPA

87/100

by Limazulu from Idaho

Poured into a 12 oz Nonic Pint
A-looks like a pineapple smoothy, with above-average rocky head and modest lacing
S-tangerine and tropical fruit
T-It takes a bit to unpack the different fruit notes here that come from the combination of Galaxy and Citra hops. Some melon, tangerine, and sour lime perhaps. Moderate (-) bitterness, Moderate (+) sweetness, no booziness
M-Moderate (+) body, nearly Full. Some sort of strange (in a good way) carbonation that really pops on the swirl. More of what I would call effervescent.
O-phenomenal

Had this at a bar in Stowe, amazing flavor. Starts as light IPA beer, then changes to a great taste of tropical fruits. Light feel in mouth, extremely drinkable. If looking for a smooth 8% beer with bite, this will make you happy. Make sure you keep cold while storing.

Good beer with great texture and feel. Looks like orange juice. Spicy and a hint of pepper on nose more. That taste is more prevalent than tropical fruit. Pineapple is what I got as well. I enjoyed.
