Growlette share with a buddy. I poured mine into a tulip. The appearance was a ruddy burnt orange color with a sustaining finger’s worth of white foamy head. Gently dissipates, low stringy lace. The aroma starts off with grapefruit bitterness punching some extra citrus rind bitterness but then opens up with some grapefruit pulpy sweetness. Sly mango seems pretty low but there. The flavor softly brings it together nicely. Gentle sweet grapefruit juiciness and then touches the finish nicely. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation seems good. Enough bitterness as a DIPA, hidden booziness. Overall, another nicely done DIPA by Burlington’s hidden gem of a brewery (well, at this rate, they won’t be a hidden gem too much longer).

Pour at the brewery and 750ml growler brought home.

Hazy straw yellow, tad off-white head, small bubbled foam. Lacing for days.

Big citrus and resinous hop aroma.

Bright and up front citrus hop flavor, earthy resins.

Moderate carbonation and upper side of medium body.

May be my favorite from Foam at this point, on level with all the VT big boys.

Week old growler purchased at brewery.

Appearance- hazy pale orange, very light head with lacing.

Aroma -mango,pine, citrus, malt on back end. Very nice

Taste- follows the nose. Slight bitterness and biscuit on the back end. Slight aftertaste I cannot place.

Mouthfeel- very appropriate for style. Medium mouthfeel.

Overall- rock solid imp IPA. Taste not as good as smell but well made. My first offering from these guys. Potential is def there

On tap at the brewery. The best Foam beer I've had so far, this is delicious! Hazy, fruity, and the perfect amount of hop bite. Well crafted and something I would buy again in a heartbeat.

A: Hazy, peach orange with a golden almost orange juice like hue. Thin, creamy white head that quickly dissipates.
S: Wow! This is exceptional. I don't usually throw out 5's particularly for aroma, but this is perfect. So many different fruity aromas upon pouring. Mango, fresh squeezed grapefruit, orange, peach, pineapple, apple, melon, the list goes on and on. It's like a fruit punch meet tropical citrus explosion!
T: Notes of grapefruit pith, peach, melon and mango stand out. The juice notes are there, but just not as bright as the aroma. Still very good though!!
M: Moderate carbonation, the hops really "pop" out and are prickly to the tongue. Has a slightly bitter finish. Crisp and enjoyable!
O: Another outstanding brew from Foam. These guys are killing it right now! Go there and try this!!
