Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on January 24, 2020. New American hoppy ale made with lactose sugar, and hopped infinitely with Galaxy, Cashmere and Experimental Hop #472.

Yellow-gold pineapple juice body with full haze, zero turbidity, and a very nice fluffy head of bright white, foam that you could easily scoop with a spoon. The soft foam collapses to a no-to-thin cap of white bubbles, providing wonderful lacing down the glass. The body of the beer isn't the prettiest, but the head is fantastic.

Grass, citrus, a little dank stank, tropical fruit, overripe stone fruit, white grapes, a little onion, and some crackery wheat. Quite herbal, as well. It's not a huge nose, but there's a multitude of really nice notes that layer wonderfully. The dankness and slight stank gives it a really nice pop at the back end. You've got to really dig your nose in (or swirl the glass, or let it warm) to get the full run of notes, but it's worth it. Really nice nose, especially for a

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy very pale yellow color with a thumb sized white head that falls slow and laces well.

Aroma is nice and fruity mango, tangerine, peach not much in the way of bitterness in the nose anyway. Just tropical fruits on a sweet cake like base.

Taste well watered down fruit notes or at least not as pleasant and intense as they are on the nose. Cake like sweet malt base is there with a lightly bitter citrus kick with a grassy/herbal like kick to it. Personally just not lining up with what my nose is telling more or less.

Mouthfeel is medium fairly juicy with just a touch of pep.

Overall eh not bad but not great.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Bright lemon yellow body with a mango-hued core. Very nice firm head, more than a finger in size. Body is hazy and opaque, but without the floaties that so often mar Foreign Objects' brews. Retention is nice.

Mango, pear, white grape, and tangerine on the nose, accented by bright and sharp Italian herbs. Not the most complex nose, but pleasant and without noticeable flaw.

Very easy and juicy on the palate, with much more citrus (tangerine) accented by mango, pineapple, grass, cracker, a touch of caramel, and pine. The malt base isn't particularly sweet, instead coming across fairly grainy, toasty, and dry; the up-front sweetness is primarily from juicy hop tones.

Lively and smooth on the palate; excellent overall body, much smoother and fuller than a single IPA usually can manage, but still lively and drinkable. Semi-dry finish. Low-to-moderate bitterness.

A: Bright, almost gold bar like coloring, has a 2 finger pillowy white head, with a bready and porous surface that sticks around. Soapy bubbles around the glass edges.

S: Fresh and fruity nose, white grapes, breakfast fruit, and grapefruit/o.j. mixture. Wet sense, moderate strength, and fairly lasting.

T: Fresh pine and lightly dry grassy hops, dry whole grains, with some grapefruit and orange juice like bitterness, citric. Flavor forward, with some tropical and soft green citrus backing. Yeasty, peaches and citrus grind, with a flowery bite on the finish.

M: O.J. like mouthful, full and pulpy, full of lactose texture. Lightly tart off the tongue.

O: Overall a citrus-grapefruit backed high flavor forward hopped beer, that was tart and juicy, and very much enjoyable. High drinkability rate and outstanding per style overall.

From a month-old can, pours a very hazy light gold with a hint of green. Nice white head, decent lacing. Smell and taste are outstanding and complex, with tangerine, pineapple, mango and pine. A bit of earthiness in the drying, moderately bitter finish. This is a great beer with tons of flavor at a manageable ABV.

Juice-like opacity, pale-medium golden yellow color body, finger or two of white head... Made with lactose sugar, double dry hopped, featuring Galaxy and Cashmere hops, and experimental hop #472...

Presents aromas and flavors suggestive of tropical and orchard fare, including tangerine, melon, lemongrass, coconut, and peach, with a mild passion fruit undercurrent and brighter citric notes providing highpoints... Soft and smooth, tangy and zesty, it is mildly sweet and moderately bitter with ample carbonation... I'm really liking it...

Canned 9/18/18...

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Cloudy pale orange with three-plus fingers of thick, lush, off-white head. Good retention and thick rings of lacing.

Creamy fresh-squeezed orange juice, lime, vanilla, wintergreen and floral hops in the nose.

The same creamy citrus and floral notes from the aroma are present in the taste, but overwhelmed by strong, pithy bitterness. It’s overflowing with hops. There’s a kiss of alcohol, too.

Full, creamy feel with just enough carbonation.

There’s a lot to love about this beer, but I think it steps too far over the “artful” dry-hopping line into “extreme” beer territory. 9/18/18 canned on date.

Apparently I liked this beer a lot more than most others. By far the best I've had from them. It tasted a lot sweeter than I was expecting from the look.

Foreign objects has a wonderful designer. The beer itself is a great repentesation of a New England style IPA. Not heavy for the use of experimental hop #472!

Canned on 9/18/18

Pours an incredibly hazy golden straw with juts over a finger of semi-thick white head; great retention at the surface, and with plenty of soapy lacing interspersed around the glass.

Aroma bursts with underripe tropical fruits, fresh pineapple, tangerine, hints of grass and raw, earthy hops, and a slight sweetness on the tail end.

Taste brings piney, bitter grass and a prickly hop character, welcoming in more subtle notes of ripe tropical fruit that are swiftly overtaken by hop resin; nice bitterness integrated into the profile, evened out by the delicate sweetness of the milk sugar and letting the raw hoppy, earthy characteristics to shine through in spots where tropical notes may otherwise dominate.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and incredibly smooth; balanced carbonation and the prickly hop characteristics add further nuance to a beer made easy-drinking through structure, but a good burst on the palate from the unrestrained hops. FO nails this quality so often.

Very solid NEIPA with good ‘highs’ and a nice structure to it; the flavor profile underwhelms at points, possibly from both the hop and milk sugar elements not expressing their full character due to the balance, but there’s certainly something to be said for the balance in this beer as well; in spite of what it may lack, this one can satisfy easily.
