COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The sharpest focus was put into our IPA. Massive late and dry-hop additions give FOTO an intense hop aroma and flavor without an over-powering bite. ABR2012 was the official release of FOTO!

Not a bad IPA, not at all. Pours a deep golden yellow, with mid-sized head. Some hops in the aroma, though a bit muted. Big hop flavor, though--piney, bitter hops, with well-rounded mouthfeel and a bitter finish.

AWISLguy (1295) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle from Four Firkins with a 7/31/14 bottle date. Pours a golden orange with a white spongey head. Nice streaks of lace. Aroma has orange juice and pine. Later some tropical fruits and some caramel show through. Taste is of bitter citrus fruits, tangy pine, some chewy resin and light biscuity malts. Flavors are all there; just a bit muted. Medium bodied and somewhat sticky. Finishes more bitter than sweet, although somewhat balanced. Shrug? Decent, but needs more oomph of something. 13.5

Braudog (5748) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Another clean, balanced and beer without flaw ... but indistinguishable. Amber beer, looks and feels good. Not much more to say. (#5663, 8/28/2014)

Tap. Pint glass at sunshine factory. Copper with nice thick white head. Smells of pine. Has a brewery grain flavor to it. Resin body with heavy hop. Decent, just not terribly complex.

Clownoisseur (212) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Pours a bright orange with a small white head. Leaving some spotty lacing. Aromas are light and on the sweet side. Some floral/grassy hops creep in. Taste is pretty decently balanced, although nothing jumps out at you. A slight soapiness in the moderately bitter finish. Slightly thin but definitely drinkable!
