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.

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.
