by JamFuel from Sweden

Pours a hazy light orange with soft head.

Smell is juicy and fruity. Notes of mango, citrus, pineapple and a hint of vanilla.

Taste is fruity, juicy and almost a bit tart. Notes of citrus, nectarine and passionfruit. Very soft bitterness, extremely drinkable.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, an IPA that is very easy to drink, but lacks a bit of kick.

Canned 9/23/21. Let sit out for fifteen minutes before opening.

Hazy yellow, with one finger of long-lasting white foam, that leaves some spotty lacing.

Smells of grapefruit, lemon, and slight biscuity malt.

Taste is pineapple, grapefruit, kiwi, lemon , white grape, star fruit (carambola - btw, where has that gone? Haven't seen it in ~ forever. ) . Moderate bitterness towards finish, and lingering beyond.

Feel is medium, but seems light, and easy-drinking for the abv. Initially lightly creamy, with moderate, very,very fine semi-soft carbonation bite coming in midway. Slightly drying finish.

Overall, just a pleasure.

Canned 13 days ago.

L -- Pours a hazy straw body in the glass with 3+ fingers of rocky off-white head produced with moderate pour. Decent retention and minimal lacing
S -- Yellow grapefruit, almost-rotten tropical fruit, lemon sorbet, hint of booze, earthy dankness
T -- Earthy and citrus rind upfront, bit of wildflower honey mid-sip, tapering astringent pineapple on the finish with moderate bitterness
F -- Medium- mouthfeel, medium carb. Bit watery around the edges, but not too bad
O -- Another decent but not outstanding offering from these guys

81/100

Hazy golden body. Tropical, more tropical and citrus fruit on the palate. Medium sweetness and body, soft carbonation. Good juice quotient, mild bitter citrus and grapefruit zest.

Unique taste, Particularly for Double IPA. Smooth but a little bitter.

From a 16oz can, dated 11/16/20. Served in a Foam-branded cervoise because totally proper glassware.

Pours like a glass of pale, pulp-free OJ with a couple of fingers of frothy foam. Retention is unremarkable but leaves scattered wads and gobs of bubbly lacing.

Aroma is muted - nothing unpleasant but nothing stands out either.

Taste is fruity, tart and moderately bitter. Orange, kiwi, pineapple, lime, gooseberry, soda cracker. Fast and zippy, impeccably clean finish.

Feel is clean and bright, juicy, medium bodied with aggressively tingly carbonation. Drying at the end and with the slightest boozy warmth in the gullet as it settles in.

Overall, good stuff. We do not use the expression ‘poundable’ but let us just say that it is very easy drinking. Had to check the label a couple of times to verify it really was 8.2% abv.

Foam Brewers leads the way in new england with incredible brews and this is no exception. Not as much as a hop bite as I would hope but then again I've been damaged by the likes of the Alchemist. Be that as it may, one WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

Pours beautiful hazy dark yellow with a 2 finger sticky white head that leaves thin lines of lace behind, with excellent retention. 4.75

Smell pineapple, papaya, tangerine, mango, apricot, and some pink grapefruit rind. Really special! 4.75

Taste follows tropical front to back with a bunch of tangerine, pineapple, mango, and papaya upfront and some slightly bitter apricot and grapefruit in the lip smacking finish, oh heck yes. 4.75

Mouthfeel is bigger than average, soft gentle feel on the palate, sticky from all the fresh hops but not dry, and 8.2% ABV goes down extremely easy. 5

Overall exactly what you would expect from one of the finest to brew a NEDIPA. World class grade sauce right here. 4.75

A: Pours a hazy yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves good lacing

S: Citrus and light pine up front along with some floral notes

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the citrus and then picks up some melon, floral, and pine notes. Moderately bitter. Finishes with lingering light bitterness and citrus

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: Another solid IPA from Foam. Super easy to drink. Nicely balanced. Recommended

Cloudy light yellow-orange with three fingers of antique white head. Spotty lacing

Papaya and clementine in the nose. There’s some slight grassiness and doughiness in there, too.

The taste largely follows: tropical and citrus flavors kept in check by grass, strong citrus rind (lime?) and some slight doughy malt.

Soft, full feel with just enough carbonation.

A really well-balanced, well-crafted New England IPA. Plenty of fruit flavor coupled with some really nice bitterness
