Notes: Time is already gone...Throw your mind away and fall into the sea of Galaxy and Mosaic hops obsessively layered in this New-American Hoppy Ale. Bursting flavors and aromas of eternal existentialism, ripe stone fruit, consciousness exploration, mystical grapefruit flesh, mango-nectar, and resinous proton waves! There are some people on earth. They live with separate minds. Dissolve your body today. There is no more outside.

4.35/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a hazy murky pale pineapple/orange juice color mixed. Small white bar pour head done great lacing for such a small head.

Aroma is incredible atleast the intensity is great could smell it as soon as the glass was set in front of me didn't even have to lift it to my nose. Sweet tropical fruit, citrus manderin oranges, pink grapefruit, mango, pinnapple with floral hints that even make it sweeter.

Taste is like the nose but more in line with a normal NEIPA. Good and fruity with some sweetness and an light underlying hop bitterness.

Mouhfeel is medium with lightly peppy carbonation.

Overall a good NEIPA nice flavor on the better side, but the nose is damn fu**ing wonderful.

Pours cloudy bright gold with a one finger silky white head. Nose is sharp with floral nectarine and grapefruit. taste is similar with the sweetness kicking in midtaste. Really pleasant blend of stone fruit and grapefruit. Mild bitterness, soft mouth feel, moderate seltzer. Just fantastic job on this one. My first from this brewery, being up here in Maine. Will look for more.

Solid NEIPA featuring two favorite hops, Galaxy and Mosaic, dry hopped as always with Foreign Objects... 1/23/19 canning puts this older than I'd prefer for a hoppy pale, but I'm not picking up anything negative about the beer - in fact, it's refreshing, juicy without being too sweet, suggesting tropical, fleshy orchard, and dark citrus fruits; plush but not without a clean edge of sharp fruit and pine... Really enjoyable (and that's with 3 months on it)...

4.12/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Head production is relatively modest, although some lively activity produces a decent-sized white foam late in the game. Brew is hazily opaque and a peachy orange color, with visible sediment at the bottom of the glass.

Brightly juicy and herbal nose: mint, oregano, melon, lemon, orange, mango, pineapple, and pepper.

More juicy and sweet on the palate (less brightly herbal), with the malt bill bringing plenty of sweetness. Mild-to-moderate dankness. Plenty of peach, mango, and papaya, laced with tinges of orange and grapefruit at the edges. Very mild pepper and basil.

Smooth and easy mouthfeel, no hint of the ABV. Really too easy to drink, although it could use a touch of sting to balance out the overall profile. A very nice NE-IPA style mouthfeel from outside of New England - a detail most brewers of the style do not usually get right.

Cloudy juice like appearance, lasting foam and lacing. Dank hop and citrusy notes on the smell. Taste is mildly juicy with a slight bitterness on the back end. Feel is full bodied, mouth watering, boozy for a NEIPA. Pretty damn good.

Thanks again to the upper echelon of FloorMatt salesmanship.

Poured from a one month old can...

Cardboard brown box meets orange juice appearance with an eager rocky meringue of a froth resting on top. Relentless persistence and lacing every which direction.

This guy is all citrus peels and pith on the nose. Touches of lime, dirty pine, and Greek yogurt lie underneath.

A good 50/50 guava to yogurt blend dominate the flavor. Subtleties of the above mentioned are once again found when really turning every stone over.

Creamy and smooth with a decidedly bitter finish. Sticky and sappy kind of. The elevated abv is detectable, and moreso once warmed.

Pretty good NE style, but not the best display of Galaxy nor Mosaic hops by any means.

Cheers.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: The beer is very hazy yellow to approaching cloudiness in color. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that left a narrow collar around the edge and lots of lacy rings of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of mangos and stone fruit are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has additional hints of citrus and peach. There is a very slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a very nice and juicy New England IPA with lots of tropical aromas and flavors.

Serving type: can

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours hazy, cloudy gold with a thick, creamy head, solid retention, and tons of thick lacing.

Great balanced aroma of danky herbal hop notes with citrus, tropical & stone fruits, solid strength level.

Taste follows, more mangoes and slightly herbal than anything else.

Feel is full, smooth, decent solid bitterness.

Overall, very solid DIPA hazy, glad to see FO distributed around here.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on February 13, 2019. Brewed with Galaxy and Mosaic hops. Flavors and aromas of stone fruit, grapefruit flesh, mango and pine resin.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

a: hazy bright orange & burnt caramel color. a little bit of pale yellow towards the bottom of the glass. large, 2-3 finger frothy, rocky bright white head

s: ripe mango, juicy passionfruit and apricots, sweet strawberries, and orange zest upfront. a sweet, crackery malt presence in here as well. a bit of guava and pineapple at the end. finish is mango and some sweet malts

t: ripe mango, grapefruit and sweet malts upfront. apricot and passionfruit behind that. following that is a slightly earthy hop presence that isn't really dank - just sweet and earthy. a touch of strawberry follows this, with a hint of alcohol. bready malts are noticeable in here as well, and provide a solid backbone

m: fluffy, heavy mouthfeel with low carbonation

o: i'd classify this as a NE DIPA. it's hoppy and tropical, but has a sweet malt presence that makes up the backbone. mouthfeel and appearance are spot on for a NE-style beer. Big ABV, that is very easy to drink, as are most NEIPA's

Canned... who knows. No date!

Pours a mild fizzy bubbly head that retains well, super hazy murky sunny orange color

Nose explodes with fresh fruits, tropical all over, tons of pineapple, mango, papaya, passion fruit, some stone fruit slightly under-ripe peach, little apricot, tangerine, and touch of orange, every grapefruit to round it off, a touch of creamy malt, lactose

Taste brings a bit more creamy malt, toasted wheat and maybe oats, a touch maybe lactose again but hard to tell, big tropical fruits all over again, loads of pineapple, papaya, mango, lots of rind citrus, some pithiness and a bit of grapefruit, tangerine citrus, a bit of apricot and under-ripe peach again, a touch of warming tingly alcohol and alcohol flavor notes, semi sweet, a sticky finish, pretty bitter but balanced, lingering spicy chewy hops

Mouth is med to fuller bod, a bit syrupy sweet, sticky finish, some warming tingly alcohol maybe a bit hot even for 8%, decent fluffy carb

Overall very nice, a bit too sweet and boozy, and long spicy super bitter hop finish, but otherwise great tropical and stone fruits all over.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Super cloudy, giving a whitish hue to light gold color. Moderate head which leaves several rings of lace on the glass.

Piney aroma with an almost honey like touch, although it's not sweet. Intriguing.

The malt is strong but come the swallow, the hop bite is stronger. Solid body but the carbonation is low enough to give the beer a watery feel. Long lingering aftertaste on a fairly subtle hop kick.

Orange, grapefruit, stone fruit, melon, nectarine, grass and mango. Juicy and dank. Cracker malt. Lower bitterness. Some raw dry hop flavors. Solid dipa from a relatively unknown brewery.

Navel orange, mango, peach, passion fruit, pineapple, dank, blueberry, pine sap, oats, and honey.

Taste
Orange, grapefruit, and mango juice. Peach, passion fruit, and hints of pineapple. Dank, pine sap, forest floor, and zesty florals. Honey and oats round out the malt bill.

Overall
I say goddamn! Tropical, citrusy, juicy, dank, and smooth.

Growler into pint glass. Pours an opaque hazy gold with a thin off-white head. Initial impression is grapefruit rind, orange, minimal sweetness but not bitter either. Alcohol is very well hidden. Mouthfeel is medium as is carbonation. Finish is smooth and slightly bitter. Very good, but I like Wet Gravity a little better.

Look - hazy gold. Not quite as opaque or juice like as some other NEIPAs, but there is still no mistaking what this is.

Smell - sweet mango, with a bit of strawberry and orange juice.

Taste - mango. Mango. Mango. Well balanced sweetness and bitterness.

Feel - full bodied, velvety, medium/low carbonation.

Overall - wonderful beer. Hits all the marks. Definitely would seek this out again.

Very grapefruit juice like look with little head from can. Wonderful nose on this brew, sweet stone fruit and tropical notes galore. Nice flavor translation with some sweetness and a slight fruit bitterness to the finish; a hint of onion. Well carbonated for this beer with a medium thickness.

Canned 1/23/18 (26 days ago)
Purchased for $6.49 at Monde Market

L - 1-finger foamy white head atop a completely opaque, orange juice body. Wowee wow, what a stone cold stunner! From a distance, this could easily be mistaken for actual oj.

S - very tropical. Mango, papaya, stonefruit, grapefruit.

T - follows the nose. A tropical fruit explosion! The Galaxy in this one absolutely shines. Moderate, enjoyable bitterness, with very low sweetness, and no booze.

F - thick and creamy with below-average carb.

O - this is near-perfect. It does everything right. Wish I could find another can (or 4-pack!) but alas, they were hard to come by around me. My favorite beer of 2018 so far.

Pours a murky orange color typical of NE style IPAs with a white head that quickly fades. Smells of tropical fruits, mostly pineapple and mango. The taste is similar to the smell, very juicy and enjoyable. Very impressed with my first beer from Foreign Objects.

Was pleasantly surprised by this beer. Looked and had the smell of a solid NE style IPA, the taste that followed held that true. A sweet, pineapple juicy flavor, and bitter note to finish helped me appreciate this beer. I’d definitely recommend trying this beer

Tall can - canned a few days ago...

Pours out in a quality looking NE IPA style, over clouded, with a frothy off white cap leaving more then ample super fine lacing on the glass.

Sweet and fruity. tropical fruit sniff with candied pineapple. Yum

This is super tasty and highly enjoyable stuff, available in stores, a super high quality "shelfie"... over the top tropical, with pineapple, light grapefruit, lemon/lime goodness...very impressed with this offering...go get some and enjoy every sip...
