753. Foley Brothers Brewing Fair Maiden DIPA

Foley Brothers Fair MaidenVermont is home to some truly exceptional IPAs and DIPAs with The Alchemist, Lawson’s Finest, Hill Farmstead and Fiddlehead getting the most attention. These beers can be hard to find but great when you can get them. Then there are a few beers that fly under the radar like this one from Foley Brothers. Fair Maiden is their DIPA and I see it on the shelf regularly when I am in Vermont.

This beer pours a deep unfiltered orange with a nice white head. Aroma has a nice blend of citrus and grassy hops. Taste starts off with the sweet malts then the hops come in with a big citrus and earthy hops with a fairly bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden making this very easy to drink.

If you find yourself in Vermont looking for Heady, Lawson’s or making the trip to Hill Farmstead keep an eye out for Foley Brother’s Beer you will not be disappointed. 
Pros:
Very flavorful, alcohol well hidden
Cons:
Alcohol Content: 8.2% ABV

634. Foley Brothers Brewing Native IPA

Foley Brothers Brewing India Pale AleThis is another beer I picked up on a recent trip to Vermont. I am always on the look out for new breweries and with so many great IPAs coming out of Vermont I thought I would give this one a try. I had never heard of Foley Brothers before coming across this one, apparently they are small, relatively new brewery in Brandon Vermont which is south of Burlington.

Native IPA pours a nice orange with a minimal white head that dissipates quickly. Impressive aroma for a single IPA with plenty of pepper spicy hops and a bit of citrus. Taste follows with a nice sweet malt base followed by several different hop flavors; spice, floral, citrus and a bit of pine.

A lot going on with this beer but it works well  and makes for a very interesting beer.
Pros: Complex but balanced
Cons:
Alcohol Content: 7.0% ABV
