Classic Vermont NEIPA. Hazy gold, has a small head but that’s ok, so does my dog. Juicy on the front, pleasantly bitter hop bite on the back. Drink em all day, especially with a view of the Adirondacks over the lake, but careful with the ABV over 8%, it’ll sneak up on you as it doesn’t read boozy.

16oz can dated 10/16/22.

Pours hazy yellow with an inch-plus head of white. Peach, orange, and apricots in the nose. Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel. Juicy but balanced on the palate with ripe tropicals. Finishes with minimal malt or bitterness.

Pale yellow with a tan edge, loosely structured head that provides a couple streaks of lacing. Nose has a guava and tangerine vibe to me, with a bit of dankness surrounding the tropical/citrus notes. Medium body leaning lighter, aided by a moderate carbonation that gives the beer a bit of a soda vibe. Juicy notes don't come through to my palate, leaving a watered down fruit with a fair herbal to dank bitterness throughout the sip. Not much evolution, and I am missing a better opening to contrast the flavor I get throughout.

A-Hazy straw yellow with a finger of pillowy white head that soon dissipates to a ring of foam around the glass

T-I get lots of melon flavour with sweet tangerine and candied mango
O-Outstanding beer!

Cloudy, dirty gold color. Excellent starting head which retains a film of bubbles throughout the tasting. Plentiful spots for lace.

Strong weedy/vegetal nose. Biting.

Dry pale malt start. Average body; above average carbonation. Some alcohol in the back. The hop starts off with the earthiness but slips to straight up bitterness.

Very light in appearance for a DIPA. Smells of overripe tropical fruit. The tropical notes carry through in the flavor but its too sweet. Not enough malt backbone and not enough bittering hops.

All that's bad about NEIPAs these days.

From a 2-week-old can, pours a hazy bright gold. Big bright white head of foam. Smell has tropical fruits, citrus and melon. Taste follows, but there's something about it I don't love—something that I don't associate with Citra or Mosaic hops. I was expecting a lot more of this beer, but it's just a pretty average NEIIPA, with something slightly funky and off. Also not bursting with aroma and flavor that such a fresh can should have.

One of Foam Brewing's flagships. So good! The citrus scent fairly explodes from the can once you pop the top. Hazy bright yellow pour with a pure white one-finger head. Complexity--wonderful medley of tropical and citrus flavor from two of my favorite NEIPA hops--Citra and Mosaic. Consistently delicious and beautifully blended from first sip to last. Foam is becoming one of my Vermont favorites--and that's high praise!

A: Poured from the can into a Tree House tulip. Body is slightly hazy bright yellow, with about a 1-finger head of bright white.

S: Odd - almost like a pilsner, with straw/grain and tropical fruit (pineapple), plus something more earthy.

T: Tropical fruit: pineapple, mango, melon. Hint of stone fruit (apricot, under-ripe nectarines). Finishes with a modest lemony bitterness, which provides a nice bitter contrast that lingers on the palate. Alcohol is hidden on the palate but felt as warmth in the belly after a couple sips.

M: Crisp in feel - good, active carbonation helps fend off the sweeter, syrupy malt foundation. Drinks lighter than it weighs.

O: Good. Not great, but solid.

Pavement from Foam Brewing. Received in early June 2021 in Ninja box from @Roy_Hobbs. 16 oz can stored at home at 42 degrees. Reviewed 29/6/21. Note that I use DD/MM/YY protocol.

Appearance – 3.
First pour – Straw (SRM 3), opaque and murky.
Body – Straw (SRM 3), opaque and murky. When rear-lite, murky but bright.
Head – Large (Maximum 6.5 cm, aggressive center pour), ghost white, high density initially but quickly opening, average retention, diminishing to leave a four to six mm undulating crown and a thick partial cap. Second pour produces a dense one cm head.
Lacing – None, just a tiny piece or two hanging on the glass above the crown.
Aroma – 3 – Bitter malt and rotting pineapple. No yeast.
Flavor – 3 – Begins with light bitterness with light malt and some unpleasant flavor I can’t identify. No yeast. No ethanol (8.2 % ABV, as marked on container) taste or aroma. Gastric warming does slowly occur. No diacetyl.

Very nice appearance. Inch+ of foamy white head with reasonable retention and excellent lacing. It's hazy without being murky, and a really nice, bright yellow in color. I found the aroma relatively unremarkable. When it comes to IPAs, I have a bias towards aromas that burst from the glass, and this one has me sticking my nose well into the Teku in which it was served to pick up the citrus and tropical notes.

Taste is nicely balanced, with grapefruit & a potpourri of citrus notes, although I find it overall somewhat subdued (much like the aroma). I am enjoying how the tropical notes are well complemented by just the right amount of bitterness.

Overall this is an interesting beer. It's not overly complex, but is a good example of how a more simple approach in the hands of the right brewer can still be very good. I have no general love for IPAs, but am enjoying this one.
