Nice pine and citrus aroma right when you pop the cap. Standard looking IPA color and excellent bitter dry taste. Nice tropical fruits. Not and in you face hop bomb but just a really well done IPA. Nothing bad to say about it. Had it on tap and in bottle in North Carolina. Great stuff.

Bottle. Smells and tastes like hops, true to its name. Pours pale amber, translucent with a good amount of sediment. Finger and a half of white head quickly dissipates. Taste has a bitter finish, more bitter than I like but consistent with the IPA style. I can’t call it drinkable or enjoyable, but I can definitely appreciate it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured amber with a frothy head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is all hops, but I catch a hint of citrus. Taste is the same although I can pick out the citrus easier while tasting it. Bitter start and finish with a lingering aftertaste. Not much for strong hop flavor but this one is balanced well for my liking.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber pour with biscuit, cracker and toasty malts with city and flowery hops and some fruits mixed in. Flavor is toasty and biscuity malts with some mild citrus and flowery hops. Good beer for how biscuity it was.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
FROM NOTES: July 1, ’12
Poured at the Mellow Mushroom in Asheville, NC.
A: Grapefruit and orange citrus notes, floral hops and some pine notes as well. Not really a complex beer, but the hop profile smells good and seems to be well-balanced.
A: Pours a slightly hazy apricot color with a half-finger white head that dissipated slowly, leaving a decent lacing behind.
T: Follows the nose up front. I get a lot more pine resin in the taste than I detected in the nose. Slightly malty, adding a bit more body and a touch of complexity to the taste. Bitter at the finish.
P: Somewhere between light bodied and medium bodied with very little carbonation. In my opinion, a little more carbonation would help open this beer up. Nice drying finish.
O: Very drinkable and quite tasty. Not a whole lot of complexity, but done well and tasty.

There great hops combined in a tasty IPA from Foothills Brewing. An enjoyable hop-filled Ale that lingers in the mouth. I'd recommend trying this if you run across it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is something different. The hops have a nice aroma with some funky fruity notes--not citrus, but a little piney. The taste is funky tropical fruit. Not your typical pineapple, but some of the more exotic harder to define qualities like mango, mangosteen, breadfruit etc... Finish is bitter but not dry like the Sahara. Normal IPA mouth feel.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft pint. Aromas of citrus and resiny hop. Orange color with slightly off-white head and nice lacing. Really clean, hop-forward flavor with very little sweetness. Lots of resin, a bit of orange and pine. Great hop flavor! Crisp finish with a lingering resin flavor. Great IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, some pale and caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same with an average amount of hops. Average texture. Not a bad IPA, but could be hoppier.
