6 oz pour on draft at Lures Bar & Grille. Pours a light and cloudy yellow color. Aroma and flavor feature under-ripe tropical fruit, and slightly boozy malt with some astringency. This is not a very good beer - something is off. Might be a bad batch, but whatever the case is, I'm not a fan.

The Fruit That Ate Itself

Foam Brewers

IPA - American

Straw golden haze is thick and smooth. Nose has a funky, sour green cabbage type aroma that I don't understand. Husky pine fruitiness in the hops, sweet tropical juiciness after. It's only the slight sour-greens that is throwing me off.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Bradford's in Plymouth for about eighteen dollars. My tenth brew from these guys. Canned on 9/12/22. Huge miss for me, tastes of white grapes.

Can. White head with lace. Hazy golden sunset color.

Tropical and juicy. Lemony and citrusy. Mango and melon. Earthy and spicy hops. Pretty solid hazy.

This one pours a very hazy golden yellow color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like kind of chalky, with clove and chive, plus mango and grapefruit.

There's an odd chalky and spicy bitterness here that feels out of place for the style. The juicy hop character is alright, but it falls flat, especially against the weird vegetal off-flavors.

This isn't that drinkable, at all, with too much astringency on the back end.

Foam is usually pretty dependable, but this fell short.

Pours a hazy yellow with soft, soapy head.

Smell is fruity, herbal and slightly earthy. Notes of citrus, melon and meringue.

Taste is fruity and herbal with a slight tartness as well. Notes of citrus, melon and nectarine with a hint of rye. Soft, bitterness, very easy to drink.

Mouthfeel is medium, soft and well carbonated.

Overall, a very easy to drink IPA.

A-Hazy straw yellow with a wonderful pillow of white head that hovers atop this beauty
S-Tropical fruit bomb with a fragrances of mango, pineapple and what can be described as sweet cream. Elements of melon come through as well
M-Juicy velvet mouthfeel with a full body and low end carbonation. Perfect really
T-I get a very strong melon flavour with elements of that cream descriptor.
O-Outstanding! This was super fresh and oh so pleasant to drink!

Canned 3 weeks ago. Hazy straw body with a fluffy white head. Zesty aromas -- not a ton going on. Same in the flavors. A bit boozy even for the ABV. Nice soft mouthfeel, though

One pint cans, dated 5/26. Have been enjoying since 5/28.

Pours a very pale, almost opaque straw color with a moderate, lacy head.

Aroma is a lovely blend of key lime pie, grapefruity citrus, pizza dough malts, and a minimal amount of slightly floral greens underneath.

Yum. Citrus, grapefruit, or maybe mango. Dank hops and mellow, mild malting give way to a deeply juicy and slightly bitter finish that leaves you wanting another sip. Very bright, juicy feel. Soft and smooth, I find this to be a well balanced beer.

I think this is an excellent beer. I have been drinking too many of these lately, and enjoying every sip. Living in Vermont I am very spoiled by tasty brews, but I can confidently say this is one of my favorites lately. 95+/100

Served in a stemless wine glass

This beer pours yellow and turbid. It is topped with an inch of tan head that leaves decent lacing.

It has a sweet aroma along with citrus. It smells a little like vanilla to me.

The taste is not as sweet as the smell indicates. I get dank and citrus with pine in the finish with a slight bitterness. Grapefruit pith grows with each sip.

Medium bodied with a slightly chalky mouthfeel

This is a pretty good beer. I like the dank, grapefruit, and pine.

From a 2.5-week-old can, pours a hazy, milky yellow-gold. Big white head leaves lots of lacing. Smell and taste are a nice combination of tropical fruit, citrus and a touch of pine. Really good beer.

Bright yellow hazy body, pearl white head and lacing. Citrus and melon with dank hops in the nose, pretty clean. Taste has the citrus focusing on the fruit more than the zest, melon, mango and a touch of pear with dank and slight pine hops finishing. Feel is bright, juicy yet very soft, very wet before finishing dry, hop textures are mild. Very nice neipa

Can from Jeff, thanks for the opportunity!
Lightly hazy light gold with a decent sized off white head that slowly recedes. Earthy citrus and tropical notes with marmalade and sweet bread.

Poured into a frosty pint glass. Another of the impressive Vermont style IPAs. Foam is doing some great things, get this if you can. It's worth going to Vermont just to tour the many great breweries.
