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

16 oz can poured into a weizen glass.

Appearance
Hazed-out cloudy straw-blonde. 1 finger of fluffy white head. Moderate carbonation. Light yeast sediment dances around.

Nose
Peach, passion fruit, blueberry, honey, oats, and vanilla.

Taste
Huge peach and passion fruit flavors along with dried blueberry and lemon peel. Resinous, floral, and lightly earthy, Candy sugar and oats with hints of vanilla and honey. Grapefruit and orange zest on the finish.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp, smooth, juicy, semi-dry, and moderately bitter.

Overall
What can I say? Obviously another great beer from FO. Peach, passion fruit, pine resin, dried lemon peel, and blueberries.

Double dry hopped, featuring Mosaic and Vic Secret hops... Medium golden yellow beer, hazy with some chunkier sediment temporarily in suspension... Finger-plus of white foam on top... Offers a nice fruit character on the nose and palate, suggesting a variety of impressions ranging from mango to orange to peach and white grape - sharper, berry-like flavors pop up throughout as well... Some danker, pine-like currents underscore the juicier elements... Soft and smooth, plush, but with some citrus tingle... Mildly sweet, moderately bitter... Smooth and well-carbonated... Leaves a nice bitterness on the finish, like something green, unripe, and vinous... My first from the brewer... No canning date...

16 oz. can. No date. Poured into Kane goblet.

L: 3F soapy head with spots of lacing. Cap and ring persists. Beer is a mostly hazy light bronze.

S: Nice tangerine-orange and berry notes and some earthiness. Vic Secret and Mosaic is a nice combination.

T: Citrus and berry, fair amount of dank earthy finish. Very slightly bitter.

F: Medium body, moderate carbonation for decent drying on finish. Construction and balance are solid.

O: Your very basic fruity DIPA done very well.

Canned on 5/25/18

Pours a hazy gold with a small white head that dissipates almost immediately.

The aroma is of dank hops and overripe mango, almost something creamy and sweet. The balance is impeccable here.

Taste brilliantly balances deeply earthy, dank hops and piney resin with bright notes of peach and mango; it's both straightforward and complex at once.

Feels juicy, but full, in spite of a relatively low level of carbonation.

A tightly-packaged and easily drinkable DIPA; approachable and casually complex. Possibly my favorite from Foreign Objects to date.

A nicely crafted DIPA but not as tasty or complex as some of the other foreign objects offerings so far. It's a great looking beer with a tightly executed feel, solidly crisp, just feels a little one note, dominated by citrusy notes, pithy and peel flavored. Fairly bitter on the tongue and in the finish, hints of aspirin. Nothing over the top but the super dry character makes the bitterness stand out.

It says a lot that this is for me, a second tier offering from this young Brewery, as many others would struggle (and fail) to create a flagship hoppy beer of this caliber.

Edit: the more one drinks this beer the more nuance emerges. Rating adjusted as I worked my way through the six and what might have been a slightly "green" beer blossomed a bit.
