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.

maugus4ever (123) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUL 26, 2008
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 (5290) - 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.

3fourths (8291) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Draft sample. Light hazy amber orange body. Big, catty Simcoe nose full of dried lemongrass and fresh cut grass, with a pungent odor more in line with Simcoe/urine/cattiness than cannibus/dank/wet hops. Flavor is sharply bitter and drying, direct hops and a heavy load of bitterness, with little to no malt astringency. Overall a really delicious IPA that hints of higher alcohol.

Not being familiar with this brewer, I didn’t quite know what to expect, but in the end, the label says it all. This beer is hop-packed, with a great, bitter flavor that shows off the Simcoe hops. It;s bitter, undoubtedly, but there is a progression to the bitterness that opens on the palate and makes the drinking experience worthwhile. I really got more than I expected out of this beer and its tremendous length on the palate. Good stuff, and nice smooth character.

Butters (3869) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Amazing hop aroma. Simcoe is obvious in the flavor, but not overbearing and matches in perfect harmony with the other hops. Bitter finish. Very tasty.

Naka (708) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2008
On tap at the brewery. A deep amber color with a small eggshell creamy head. The nose has a lot of citrus and floral character. Some peach grassy notes as well. The flavor is more earthy than fruity. Some nice dank citrus does come through. A really solid thick body. Kind of reminds me of Bells Two Hearted, but not quite as good.
