Dead Flowers is an IPA featuring their select Riwaka and Southern Cross hops.

This beer is truly a beauty, presenting notes of fresh melon, tropical fruit juice, a hint of lime, and an overall experience that reminds of us of a creamsicle.

Pours a murky, lemon yellow without much head or fanfare. Kind of a citrusy aroma that I don't find particularly attractive.
Taste is hoppy, like a glass of hoppy orange juice almost. It's a decent enough beer but it just isn't what I look for in a beer A little one dimensional with a thin mouthfeel. FWIW, I wouldn't purchase it again.

Dead Flowers looks like straw-colored grapefruit juice--very hazy, opaque. The nose follows suit with grapefruit being the primary scent. The flavor reminds you of honeydew melon and tropical juice and is really quite mellow. A bit surprising since the look and smell makes you expect a more aggressive, juicier approach. It's good quality beer, but not one of Foam's best.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Bradford's in Plymouth for about nineteen dollars. My sixteenth brew from these guys. Pretty solid, pretty expensive.

Solid IPA looks, it smells like fresh skunk weed combined with lemon zest, herbs, fresh cut flowers, potpourri and peppery spices. It tastes like skunk weed cut off the vine, mixed with grapefruit, lemon zest, coriander, lime, piney notes, biscuit, flowers, mint, papaya and fruity candy. Not overly bitter, but it hides the ABV well.

Poured a pale straw color, decent head and carbonation, although head quickly dissipated.

The nose was wonderful and intriguing. A strong grapefruit/tart fruit smell and something I cannot quite identify, maybe an evergreen forest after rain.

The taste was a bit flat, it did not have that pop I have come to expect from Vermont brews. There was some lime-citrus tones with decent bitterness throughout.

But overall it felt ... light. The taste had little cling and went away far too quickly for a NEIPA.

I did feel it would an excellent pairing with grilled white seafood, scallops, shrimp, whitefish.
