3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
hoppy, astrigent and super dry. IBU 70. Had on tap at dajio in Ocracoke- best (and most local) choice on tap. Pours a perfect orange colour with a thin head. Nose is grapefruit and citrus- enough to make your nose tickle. Hops are the west coast C’s that never get old- more citrus, less pine. good finish- good when colder, starts to be a bit much on its own or when it warms to room temp. guess I should have consumed faster. really solid IPA. foothills is quickly becoming my favorite NC brewery- between people’s porter and this offering.

Bottle enjoyed in OBX 2016 vacation. Orange pour, white fluffy head. Caramel malts with some orange zest on the nose and tongue. Centennial hops are notable with a floral presence, also some pine and zip. Sweet but well balanced. I would have thought this was imperial. Pretty good.

Smell of hop, nut, banana. Drink from bottle, art on sticker looks cheap but it tastes better than its look. Taste of hop, sweet, bitter and fragrant. Pretty good overall.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from ??? at bottle share. Golden pour with a short tight head. Aroma greets you with flowery, piney hoppiness. Hops continue on in the taste, more dominant than the malt backbone hiding in the background. Pretty well balanced brew..
