by dbrauneis from North Carolina

A: Pours a murky bright straw yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate bright yellow + lemon yellow colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall sudsy foamy bright white head that reduces to a handful of small patches of thin film surrounded by a large patch of slightly mottled very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of citrus/lime + citrus/lime zest + gooseberry + tropical/papaya hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + wheat malts with a very light amount of sugary sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of biscuit + wheat malts with a very light amount of sugary sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of citrus/lime + citrus/lime zest + gooseberry + tropical/papaya hops which impart a minimal amount of bitterness which fades away almost instantly leaving moderate lingering citrus/lime zest + gooseberry hops flavors.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp initially with a light amount of soft/fluffiness mid-body and a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a pleasantly slightly crisp + slightly soft/fluffy mouthfeel. Enjoyable and interesting combination of hop flavors and aromas. Enjoyable but a little lighter and a not as sweet as many NEIPAs.

Pours a hazy orange with soft head.

Smell is fruity and a bit herbal and jucy. Notes of melon, orange and citrus peel.

Taste is fruity and juicy with some herbal and earthy hints. Notes of citrus, necatrine, citrus peel and pine. Soft bitterness and a slight tartness on the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a nice, well made IPA.

A-Hazy light orange in color with a white head that dissipated quickly. Looks like a refreshing glass of OJ!
S-Tropical fruit knockout with a slight funk at the back end. Aromas of mango, papaya, and overripe tangerine
M-Juicy and soft mouthfeel with very low end carbonation and a full body.
T-Sweet and fruit laden flavour with notes of tangy citrus fruit. Bitterness comes from a smooth grapefruit pith at the end and lingers for a little while.
O-Excellent brew!

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass canned on 7/30/2020. Pours a hazy yellow with a 2 finger sticky white head that leaves thin streaks of lace, with solid retention. 4.5

Smell is papaya, tangerine, peach, apricot, and white grapefruit. 4

Taste follows papaya, peach, tangerine, apricot, and some bitter grapefruit. 4

Mouthfeel is bigger than medium, a tad sticky night dry, soft gentle life, and at 7% ABV goes down easy, but loaded with flavor. 4.25

Overall this is nice, maybe a little unbalanced but a nice NEIPA but expect better from Foam. 4

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high white head that left some wisps of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of lime citrus are present in the nose along with some notes of papaya.
T: The taste has flavors of lime along with notes of gooseberry and papaya. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This New England-style IPA had an interesting combination of aromas and flavors but felt a little "softer" compared to some of the other beers in the style and was easier to drink.

Serving type: can

16 oz. can.
Canned 04/30/20.
Moderate to vigorous pour yields a one inch white head over a cloudy straw colored body with some lacing. Nose of tropical fruit (mango, papaya), citrus (orange, tangerine), and the slightest pine. Taste is all fruit with a bit of candied citrus and a finish of citrus pith. Nice feel and overall, a more than respectable NEIPA and would recommend to any and all hazybois out there.
Cheers!

Cloudy pale orange with a finger of off-white head. Heavy, sloppy lacing.

White wine and orange citrus stand out in the nose.

Very citrus-forward taste with a lot of papaya, a little melon, a little white wine, and a little grassy and piney bitterness. Slight metallic element lingers with grass and pith in the aftertaste.

Full feel with strong, with strong carbonation fizz.

Tasty, well-crafted beverage with enough bitterness to keep it very drinkable.

Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Hazed medium golden pour with 2 fingers of foamy white head. Nice lacing.

S: Citrus and pine... tropical hops and grapefruit.

T.F: Grapefruit and piney hops... dank and fruity. Juice bomb of a beer. Citrus rind and some sweetness up front. Well balanced with bitterness mid-swig. Sticky on the tongue... medium bodied and creamy carbonation.

O: Another outstanding NEIPA from Foam. Great flavor... excellent beer.

Bottom of can: Canned on 12/13/18 (opened on 12/19/19) Robinson.

A muddy and opaque depth to the orange and copper liquid, thick and foamy, white dome sits high. Dissipates pretty quick with minimal coverage and long lacing.

The aroma is totally dominated by the hops, with dense citrus, spicy pineapple and dry earth. Smells like a spicy blend of tropical fruit juice. There might be a subtle smell of honey sweet wheat maltiness down deep.

The flavor spectrum follows suit, spicy citrus and peppery pineapple is the perfect description of the first gulp. Thing liquid is smoooth! Nails it for the style with crisp, but heavy and totally juicy feel. There is a sharp, peppery hop bite in the middle, with a major rush of citrus tang and earthy pepper. This flavor also has some dry, earthy effects in both taste and mouthfeel.
Grapefruit style bitterness and dry citrus tones are featured in a big way, with big depth and a high density of hoppy flavor. The malt is obviously very light, although very grainy, earthy and light. The malt still adds a good balance for the hop headed New England style of IPA, light, golden and crisp is where it's at!
The texture is very complex, as it has all of the fine points of the style, juicy, dry, crisp but somehow crazy smooth and thick. Lactose? If not, this thing is more like an IPA frappe.

Overall, The Nameless now has a name... and it's good.
