Moderate creaminess to the tan head, adequate retention, wispy if long lacing. Coppery red colored liquid, not clear, not filmy, good amount of beads of tiny bubbles. Nose of honey, biscuit, pink grapefruit, on the sweet side and feels slightly reduced (at two months out), light dankness, mixed tropical fruit scents. Full-bodied, sluggish if not outright heavy. Not perceiving much carbonation. Caramel, honey, biscuit and oats, close in nature to the nose. Creamier upon the mouth entry then crisper at the finish. The pineapple, guava, peach fruit comes off as dry. It's funny because originally IPAs were made to survive long voyages over the sea. Now if an IPA is two months old you worry it's OTH. Of course now there's a variety of IPA styles which determines their sturdiness over time. But I hate the paranoia. In the end, for me, I really like Foam beers but this is average and I lost interest quickly enough. (Canned 12/5/23)

12/5/23 dated tall can.

Pours darker, honey amber, with just a light haze, under a dark khaki and lasting cap, and leaving strands and mini fields of lacing.

On the nose its more honey and some flowery hop notes.

Earthy, malty, fruity beer....different from so many other Vermont IPAs....but delicious in its own way.

Super smooth as it passes through the mouth.

Love the beers from Foam Brewers....this one is well worth a try.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a pint glass. Pours amber yellow with minimal foamy head. Subtle tastes of sweet piney resin with subtle notes of toffee. Sucker for the style and this is well done.

From a 16 oz. can dated 06/1/23. Sampled July 29, 2023.

A surprising amber appearance underneath a modest beige head. Yet it is also hazy. Fascinating.

Aroma of toffee and caramel malts with a resinous and pine hop sensation. Both are balanced and about equal.

Medium mouthfeel. Crisp too.

Sweet malt characters in the flavor with a measurable pine and resin hop balance. I thought this was more like a traditional IPA than a modern one. I was suitably impressed.

On tap 48*F initial creamy head, slight haze, rich copper hue. Hop bite after swallowing. Malt comes through before the bitter hops aftertaste. Chinnook, Centennial, and Simcoe hopped. Maybe a bit too much bittering hops? Half interesting half enjoyable.

Darker in color than most IPAs, this one is similar to a sweet tea. Head is an off white. Nose is slightly pine and slightly citrus. Taste is good stuff. Piney, bitterness equals GOOD BEER!

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Bradford's in Plymouth for about eighteen dollars. My thirteenth brew from these guys. Canned on date 2/22/23. A big miss for me.

16 ounce can.
Canned on 03/02/23.

Moderate to vigorous pour yields a one and a half inch slightly off white head over a medium-dark amber-gold body with sticky lacing.

Nose initially exhibits mostly pine and a bit of citrus, but after warming, notes of sweet citrus come forward.

Taste mirrors nose closely with a bit of pine resin at the finish.

Nice feel with a fairly full body and medium carbonation.

Overall, a nice stab at a West Coast IPA and would recommend to any and all hopheads.

Cheers!
