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 piƱa 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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

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.

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!
