Really good IPA. This was surprisingly similar to the Seeing Double. I thought it would be more toned-down, but toned-down is not a good word for this IPA, which remains quite strong and hoppy, in order to light your cowboys fire.

Thanks to decaturstevo for sliding me behind the tents at the 2008 Knoxville Brewers’ Jam to get a sample of what the brewers were drinking. Orange in the glass with a tall creamy off-white head that mostly lasted and left good lace. Nice hoppy floral aroma. The flavor finds pine and citrus with a light malt backing. Medium body, crisp yet smooth. Very nice IPA!

Draught at GABF 2008. Clear golden coloured with a medium sized beige head. Hoppy aroma of peaches and pine needles with notes of grass. Fruity flavour of peaches, hops and pine needles. Dry hoppy finish.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 13, 2008
A solid IPA. Lots of hops, not a lot in the way of balance, but I’m ok with that. If you like hops and are in NC this has got to be about as good as you can get. It might be a touch one-dimensional for some, but I’d recommend it.

CelticBrew (750) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2008
On draft at the WBF, Durham NC, poured a deep and hazy orange hue, nice size off white foamy head. Aroma strong of citrus flowers, pines, and hops. Flavour of a bold IPA, much the same as the aroma, extremely quaffable, sticky mouth feel. What an awesome gem of a beer from NC.

2008 Southern Brewers Fest . Tap. Deep amber color. Big hop floral aroma. Lots of citrus. Flavor is a complex hop bitterness. Decent malt character. Lots of hops. Floral hop flavor. A stamndard American IPA.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2013 Backlogged rating. Had on tap at the Federal, Durham, NC, summer 2007. This was the first Foothills brew to make me really sit up and take notice. A huge grapefruity aroma wafting off the kind of cloudy orange body and solid foamberg one expects from the So Cal titans of the style. Wonderful use of simcoe makes this so delicious, several pints were had. If (when?) Jamie and co. start bottling, I will session the hell out of this beer.

Pours a nice orange color with a medium head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy. Very crisp flavors with limited malts, creating a nice hoppy brew. An IPA worth trying.

nimbleprop (4547) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Sampled at the Savor DC event. Pours a clear orange amber with a frothy, rocky head. Aroma pine, hop resin and oils with some tropical fruits. Crisp, clean flavor or oranges, pine and citrus zest. Flavorful and drinkable. Quick side note: Jamie and the guys from Foothills were without a doubt some of the nicest guys at the entire event.
