UPDATED: JUL 7, 2011 On tap at Foothills. Burnt orange pour. Tangerine and pineapple aroma. Great bitter hop flavor. Very well balanced. This is a very good IPA...Updated July 7, 2011. 22 oz. bottle from Wine 101 in Wake Forest, NC. Now that Foothills is releasing this in bottles it deserves revisiting. The pour looks fantastic with a thick, frothy off-white head. The aroma is bright with juicy tangerine and pineapple dominating. The taste, while bitter, does offer a nice balance. While my overall impression is nearly the same as my original review it is worth mentioning that this is a little better than "very good". Foothills simply gets everything right with this beer even if it doesn’t have a big wow factor. This is easily an above average IPA.
