3.7/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

On tap at the brewery. Hazy orange. Smells of bright orange and sweet pale malt. Tastes exactly the same. Bright orange. Sweet pale malt. Drops off and dries out. Orange lingers in the aftertaste. Medium heavy. A little boozy. Soft carbonation. Big, but good.

Growler from the source.

This one pours a very murky brown-ish orange color- this looks super ugly and weird. There's a small head, and no lacing.

This has huge strawberry tones on the nose, with guava, grassiness, lemongrass, and dankness as well.

The taste also brings a surprisingly pleasant amount of strawberry- I'm not sure what hop does this, but whatever it is- it's bringing that strawberry heat. There's other hoppy-style fruit, with melon, guava, and ruby red grapefruit, as well an interesting herbal bitterness on the finish.

This is a bit thin, and not all that crisp, but still fairly drinkable.

This is a pretty weird beer, and very different from the typical Foam IPA. It was still really enjoyable, though.

Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a dark hazy pale orange color with a finger’s worth of sustaining white foamy head that fell off super slow. The aroma had some sweet to juicy orange juice rind bitterness. Light tangerine, some vanilla, coupled by some strawberries and honeydew. The flavor leaned towards the sweet side. Super soft berry to tangerine aftertaste sliding into the finish. The feel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt good. Some smoothness flows against some of the harshness of the style on my tongue. Overall, another really good DIPA.

Poured from a growler filled at the brewery.

Pours a hazy amber-orange color with 2 fingers of effervescent light khaki head. The head has moderate retention, leaving a ton of cobweb lacing before settling into a foamy film that rests atop the beer.

The aroma is a straight up cacophony of fruitiness, like a Richard Simmons workout tape. There are notes of candied oranges, tangerines, pineapples, ruby red grapefruit, and fresh strawberries with some subtle notes of honeydew melon. The back end is slightly minty, with hints of pine and biscuity malt.

The taste brings notes of grapefruit, tangerine, and freshly picked berries, finished off by a some pine and a nice, cracker malt. The aftertaste is sugary sweet, with an almost vanilla-like character.

The feel is medium bodied with pretty good carbonation. A bit on the sticky side, with a very subtle warmth from the alcohol.

Overall, a great DIPA that has some interesting flavors and aromas. It's definitely on the sweeter side, but there's plenty of malt and bitterness to balance it out. Foam continues to make hoppy beers that stand out in a state full of them.
