1st from Foam. Smells like what’s pop pop popping girrrrl! Colors light for a dub. The highest amount of bitter I can do, mixed with smooth. Lite head. Almost fluffy,but not! Solid Virgin beer from them!

16oz can, stemmed glass. Pulpy hazy yellow body, one finger white head, fair retention, frothy lacing. Smell is guava, herbal notes, leafy resin, light caramel, sugar, a bit of pulpy orange. Flavour also brings a fair bit of guava, with more herbal and floral notes throughout with a moderately sweet sugary caramel malt backbone. Mildly bitter, about par for the style. Lighter medium bodied, lighter than typical DIPAs, mildly herbal bitterness on the backend.

Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Hazed light golden pour with thick fluffy white head. Great lacing.

S: Dank and tropical... citrus and fruit.

T/F: Follows the nose... juice bomb all the way with big grapefruit and pineapple flavors. Lighter mango, tangerine, and floral notes. Somewhat sweet up front with modest bitterness. Sticky and thick... medium bodied... warming with an ABV that packs a real punch.

O: An outstanding big DIPA from Foam. These guys really know what they're doing, and one to seek out if you can find it.

Poring a cold 16 oz can into my snifter courtesy of @schuee. thank you.
Beer pours a cloudy golden color with minimal fizzy bleached white head foaming up about 1 cm. This foam fades very quickly to a thin edge layer after only a few seconds in the glass.
Aroma is orange juice heavy, even without taking a strong sniff, I get oranges and orange juice. With some more investigation, there is also a bit of grapefruit rind and a little bit of mango note. Very juicy aroma.
First sip reveals an average body with crisp texture and very fine tingly carbonation.
Flavor is lots of juice up front, with a fairly sweet start to the sampling. Lots of orange and some mango again, this rolls to a little grapefruit, and finishes with pithy rind bite. The bitterness on the finish dries out my palate and makes me thirsty for another sip. I dont get any hint of the 9.2% ABV on the can and find the beer pretty easy to drink. Its a solid fruity and juicy DIPA. Worth a shot if that's your jam!

Poured a cloudy yellow body with minimal head and no lace. Bitter, earthy, citric hopped aroma with a minimal sweet smell. Smooth, fuller bodied, touch of bitter acidity yet has this balance that almost reminds me of orange juice sweetness and overall one can say that this is a juicy beer.
