Pours a very hazed straw with one finger of eggshell colored head. Good head retention & lacing

S: Plenty of citrus juice, nose is sort of muted & one dimensional

T: Follows the nose, dryness, grapefruit, pomelo & passionfruit, sweet orange as well up front. Lime, tangerine & a little green melon as this beer warms up, plus dryness. Finishes with pomelo, grapefruit & lime, some acidic notes

MF: Medium body, fairly firm carbonation, pretty good balance, I could've done with a little more sweetness

ABV is well disguised, very easy to drink

Foam makes some othe more interesting beers in the USA in my opinion. Some really hit home and this is one of them. A friend dropped this off a couple of days ago. Lightish for a Dbl IPA. Fruity. Terrific beer.

Pint can in a multi use tulip snifter glass.

Very light and pale yellow shade of color. Unfiltered haze. Thin white cap, soapy lacing.

Aromas are strong melon, pineapple, plantain, and citrus.

More melon and pineapple flavors along with citrus juice. Pick a fruit flavor, it’s probably in there.

Light and velvety feel. Alcohol is present with no burn. Cream-ish.

Overall, not bad considering the two hurdles; neipa and DIPA combined. Juicy enough but not overdone, easy drinking.

On tap at the brewery.

White head with nice lace. Hazy pale golden yellow.

The abv shows. Lots of melon and honeydew. Mango, papaya, strawberry. Resiny and green. Has a hop burn/bite to it. Very floral.

Decent, but maybe a bit too much for me.

Poured from a can dated 2/5/22 into a tulip glass. Opaque straw yellow in color with fluffy white head and lancing. Really good retention. Lots of citrus on both the nose and palate - grapefruit, lemon zest, lime. Smooth juicy mouthfeel but nice amount of balance and mellowness to go with the bitterness. Really pleasant residual hop oils on the finish. Delicious! My first beer from Foam Brewers because it’s hard to come by where I live and picked some up while passing through VT. I’m very impressed - can’t wait to try more from them - keep up the great work!

My brother brought some Foam back after a family trip. Thanks!! Pours pale gold grapefruit juice color, mostly cloudy, with a 2 finger dense sudsy heD that leaves nice rings on the way down. Aroma has bright citrus notes with some lycee and a touch of apricot. Very distinctive. Taste is bright with some tangerine pith, lemon, and apricot flavors. Lightly sweet with almost puckering bright notes. Love this mix because it feels very light. Not a touch of alcohol burn despite being 9.1% - something Foam does so well. Lightly bitter. This is a great beer, makes me wish they weren't 3 hours away from me :/

Can courtesy of Edms79 - thanks, man!

9.2% ABV. "Double India Pale Ale."

Yogurty and tangy - I suspect Simcoe hops? 2-row, probably malted wheat, pale malt. Floral and approachable, but I don't know that it has much hop pungency, which is a bit of a crime in the IIPA style in my view. Lemon, tang, fruit creamsicle, very faint vanillin.

Well balanced with an interesting but underpowdered hop profile. There's a lot to like here, and it sure is drinkable for a 9.2% ale, but a bit more depth of hop flavour would be nice, to pick a nit.

Damned drinkable, and even borderline refreshing despite the high ABV.

B- (3.5) / WORTHY

From a 3-week-old can, pours a very hazy deep gold. Big, dense head of white foam leaves thick lacing. Smell has tropical fruits, citrus and some resinous pine. Taste follows. Drinks like a much lower ABV. Fantastic beer.
