Notes: A 10% Triple IPA dry-hopped with Citra and Enigma. Tropical and resinous notes, surprisingly soft considering its high ABV. This beer is our first take on a TIPA in cans.

Consumed 11/12/21

Pale, almost milky yellow-orange, very hazy, pours with a small white head, fades to a few wisps and a small collar
Bright and potent hops with a ton of dry-hopping, orange, grapefruit, and a spritz of lime, loads of tropical fruit juice with the main fruit popping out as pineapple, loads and loads of pineapple, melon, lemon, herbal hops, dank hops, hop pellets, a very light touch of hop burn, pale malts, tropical fruit sweetness, booze is mostly hidden as I would say this drinks more like a 7-8% than a whopping 10%
Medium body, smooth and more slick than chewy, carbonation on the low side

The only crimes here are the ones you will commit after drinking this beer. Seriously, was 10% necessary? This beer is so interesting that it reminded me I have not reviewed beers in a while. There is so much pineapple here that it drinks reminiscent of a piña colada, and I am not joking.

From a 2-week-old can, pours a hazy bright yellow. Big white head of foam (yes I said it) leaves tons of sticky lacing, which is rare at this ABV. Smell is more the southern hemisphere hops than Citra, with lots of white grape and tropical fruit, along with some nice dank. Taste follows. Finish has a nice hit of resinous bitterness. Feel is much lighter than most IPAs at this ABV. No hint of booze. Amazing beer.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Thick hazy medium golden pour. Massive foamy white head leaves tons of lacing.

S: Booze... citrus and tropical fruit.

T.F: Semi-sweet... loads of juice. Fruit... tropical pineapple and papaya. Mango and citrus. Tangerine and rind. A bit of melon and spice. Medium (+) body... smooth and creamy. Sticky... and with just a little bitterness. More tropical fruit medley to finish. MOSTLY hides the ABV but this is a damned big beer.

O: An outstanding triple IPA. Ridiculously good flavor... watch the ABV.

Loving it, wildly drinkable despite 10%! Smooth, citrus, not too bitter. Crushin' it... should have bought more.

16 oz. can.
Canned 05/07/20.
Moderate to vigorous pour yields a one inch white head over a cloudy, light golden body with scant lacing. Nose of tropical fruit (mango, pineapple), citrus (tangerine, grapefruit), and a hint of pine. Taste of candied fruit (pineapple, lemon) with the booze (10.0% abv!) noticeably present. Somewhere in the middle there is a hint of caramel-like malt before giving way to a little finish of piney pineapple. I can't make this stuff up, folks! Nice feel and overall, in-your-face malty-boozy fruit from this TIPA makes for a very interesting offering from Foam Brewers.
Everyone needs to try this one.
Cheers!

I must be missing something.
The positive- In regards to its high Alf content its very drinkable and not boozy. The feel is thin In your mouth while the look is pineapple juice. The smell is OJ and pineapple as well. The Tate is grapefruit and bitterness. I do not care for the taste. On the end I get some pine which is nice. This is a decent beer but not as strong as other foam products.

pulpy slightly acidic OJ, candied pineapple, pineapple juice, are the predominate flavors in a beautiful fruity melange. the juice and fruit qualities lead the way but this is by no means one note - there is a pleasant level of malt sweetness, hinting at caramel and sweet bread, blending with the hop qualities to create a candied fruit flavor. some herbal character hinting at mint, and a mellow piney bitterness.

On tap at brewery.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a nice looking burnt orange color with a good two fingers worth of white foamy head. Slight messy lace.
The aroma had some tropical/pineapple-like sweet mentality rolling into some grassy to piney bitterness but superbly balanced with a faint malt.
The flavor leaned slightly towards the sweet side rolling through some pine resin and clean malt. Nice aftertaste of tropical to pineapple juice with a delicate piney resin.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a refined sipping quality about it. Good carbonation, somewhat low like a New England styled one. Some smoothness. Clean finish of malts, and tropical juicy character.
Overall, a very nicely done American imperial IPA well worthy of coming back to.
