Judging by all the previous comments, Foam must have dialed down the coconut in the latest batch. Decent but boozy tropical flavors, overpriced $12 750ml growler fill.

Poured as an opaque yellow color with a nice foamy white head on top. The smell of beer has a pretty pungent lupulin powder aroma on the nose. The taste has a good balance of creamy malts and tangy hops. The feel of the beer is creamy and smooth. Overall it's a solid brew.

This is sun tan lotion. It pours and has the body of a classic NE ipa, almost perfect for the style. But then they apparently blended it with 1L of coconut sun tan lotion per gallon and it became undrinkable. I poured this out

Look - thick milky tannish yellow with a good white head and skimming. So New England
Smell - mango pineapple orange and coconut oil all puréed into one maybe some lacrosse
Taste - all the same as the smell with some slight dankness and not really that bitter at all
Feel - medium body and medium light carbonation
Overall - very complex different but very enjoyable and fantastic

Foam Brewers is my vote for best brewery of 2017.
A - Looks like an orange milkshake with a white head.
S - Aroma is big orange.
T - Flavor is orange, grapefruit and pith. Not much bitterness.
M - Average mouth feel and carbonation.
O - I am in love. This is outstanding!

Growlette to tulip.
The appearance was a semi-hazy burnt orange to copper color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a moderate pace. Sly amount of lace, somewhat sticky, but starting to slide after a good bit.
The aroma had a really nice blend of coconut oil, grapefruit juice, light mango, subtle orange, lemongrass, playful cracker malt and a touch of citrus peel at the very end.
The flavor was moderately fluffy sweet smoothing out the bitterness of the grapefruit juice and citrus peel pretty nicely. Nice aftertaste of the coconut.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt just a touch under, didn't seem too bad as some of these other New England IPA's seem to be way under carbed. ABV felt on par.
Overall, very nice DIPA toting the coconut aroma and flavor to mesh with some other parts to definitely make for a nice drink all around.

Sampled at the taproom. Very high IBU, yet yielding a coconut oil tasting foremost. Not very complex, but also not a sweet death by coconut bomb. orange aroma.A tad boozy.

Enjoyed onsite 8.12.17 and from a 2L growler.

This is one of the most opaque beers I've ever seen, the type of haze which typically creates massive lines. As advertised, the coconut is strong in this one, from smell to taste. Overall, the taste itself is very unique filled with tropical fruits, though there is something that sets it apart from your typical juice bomb. Thick (almost shake-like) mouthfeel, typical of your NE hazy beers. Happy to say that the 2L was not overkill for something this flavorful and in-your-face. Neck-and-neck with Galaxie 500 for favorite beers from Foam so far.

Comparable beer: Double Galaxy, Hill Farmstead

A new revelation!!! Sampled from growler dated August 12th. Thanks Carm. This is a beer that may help me break the Tree House addiction I am currently in love with (too bad its so far away for me). I didn't think it was possible to get better than TH but then again I haven't had every beer in the world. The smell to me is somewhat buzzy, not something I have experienced before. Almost like a lime / citrus version of a Trillium / Tree house hybrid bordering on chemical. A little less crushable than the Th offerings at first glance but then that first sip...wow. Super super smooth, hints of a perfectly balanced juice bomb, super fine carbonation and a completely fulfilling experience top to bottom.

interesting profile, coconut definitely shows up on nose and palate. very soft and fluffy, tropical in an insane kind of way. although i wouldnt regularly drink this but was enjoyable for a half pour.
