3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at the Flying Saucer in Raleigh. Very clear orange pour with a string of head around the edge. Floral hoppy aroma comes through nicely. Lots of grapefruit and other citrus notes coming through in the aroma and flavor. Lightly grassy and spicy as well. Hop dominant, but lightly balanced by caramel malt. Quite tasty and one that I will order often!

Bottles. Well, nearly ten years after leaving W-S I returned to the south to find that Foothills has made quite a name for themselves. This almost there but a pretty heavy malt profile that makes me want to move on to something else. Piney and grassy but very full bodied and malty.

Pours a dark golden. Aromas are pine hops.. But as it warms more citrus and tropical notes emerge. Flavors are sweet and fruity, corn syrup, pineapple. A nice smooth hop finish.

1/16/15. Draft at Blue Note. Solid IPA. Light nose but very solid hop flavor. Not bitter even though the alcohol is in the 6% range. Very drinkable.

If you like a earthy ipa this is for you. Pour is medium amber with a small cream colored head. Aroma is earthy and pine. A earthy,hoppy,lite malt and citrus flavored iPad that is dry and bitter.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a Chimay goblet.
A: Pours a hazy copper color. Thereís about a finger worth of white-colored head, retaining itself decently. A thin collar remains around the glass, leaving some spotty lacing behind.
S: I have to say, the malt backbone here is pretty interesting. Itís bringing brown sugar, candy, caramel, and even some cherry esters - when combined with the grapefruity hops, itís almost like a low-ABV barleywine. Iím not always a fan of malty IPAs, but these guys did a good job making this work.
T: The initial grapefruit tasted on the palate quickly turns herbal/floral near the finish. Itís fairly bitter, but not so much to where itís oppressive. Post-swallow, it becomes slightly malty, revealing an aftertaste of toffee, caramel, candied sugar, and even the occasional ester. Iíd reckon this is a bit more complex than the typical IPA.
M: Fairly crisp and decently carbonated, if a bit full bodied for my tastes. The bitterness scrubs away some - but not all - of the sweetness off the palate. It isnít super drinkable, but itís a nice one to savor.
O: This is a reasonably delicious IPA Iíd buy semi-regularly if it were more locally available. I like that the malt backbone actually adds to the beer instead of distracting from the hops in particular. Good stuff.

From site: Do you like hops ? This American style IPA (India Pale Ale) is highly hopped with Simcoe, Cascade, and Centennial hops Made with English pale and light caramalts, Hoppyum is an orange color, with a citrusy Simcoe taste and aroma. We hope you enjoy it ! IBU: 70
Creamy. Citrus. Pine. Clean finish.

Lots of competition in the IPA world, but this beer holds its own. Nice aroma of citrus/tropical fruit, big head, taste is good but slight metallic aftertaste detracts. Iíll revisit on tap.
