An awesome IPA. Have a had on draft (at the brewery and at other bars). Appearance is golden hazy, perhaps it’s unfiltered. Citrus, pine, and lemon on the nose. Super fresh and hoppy. Similar to a Bells Two Hearted (I think they do use some Centennial hops in this one in addition to the Jade hops), but not as orangey sweet. One of the more unique tasting IPA’s instead of the standard Cascade/Centennial variety. At 7.4%, you do not taste any alcohol at all. Very crisp, refreshing, and easy drinking.

Draft. Pours a hazy paler gold with a thin eggshell head that leaves a killer wall of lace. Nose is a pungent hop garden: big pine and tropical fruit, lilac, citrus, with some biscuity malt and doughy yeast. Fairly sweet, but hugely bitter. Lighter side of medium bodied, oily, crisp, with a huge hoppy bitter finish. Amazing, seems extremely fresh with those huge hop notes. Reminds me of Shorts Huma Lupa Licious, but with an added hop dimension I’m guessing is from the Jade. Awesome flavor.

22 oz bomber into a tulip. Thanks Chris! Pours a clear straw yellow with crazy lacing. Nose is peaches, pine, and light caramel. Taste is a wonderful peachy hoppiness with only a light bitterness. Smooth and easy drinking with no hint of the high abv. Delicious!

This poured a hazy light orange with a white head. Aroma was of lots of tropical fruit, light grapefruity too. Flavor similar, mild bitterness, popping fruit and very clean. Great stuff. Not sire what made os supposed to be like though?

Originally reviewed: 2/7/11. Came out a clear dark orange/gold. This is a little more pale than I expected. A small white head caps it off, but this leaves lots of sticky lacy rings on the glass. The aroma on this beer is nothing short of amazing. Very powerful scents of pineapple, grapefruit, orange, mango. Total citrus bomb! Slight peppery finish. I could smell this all freaking day. Perfect. Nice mellow depth, with a crisp finish. The bubbles play lightly on the palate. This is a hop head’s IPA for sure. Big bitterness all the way through, but more than that, the hops are juicy and full of flavor. Citrus tones lead the way, mild sweetness in the middle, but this is fleeting. Oily at times, but dries me out on the back end. It then finishes how it started: bitter. Great IPA that hit the spot.

Golden, frothy white head. Nose is pine, tropical fruits, citra hops. Taste is tropical fruit, past-ripe mango, some pepper. Nice oily mouthfeel.

Had on tap. Pours a hazy medium orange with no head to speak of. A small amount of lacing but nothing impressive. Very tropica citrus aroma with a hefty amount of bread as well. There is a nice floral aroma mixing in too. Very inviting and quite nice. Lots of mango and grapefruit in the taste with more bread and biscuit. Huge deptht to the hops in this one with a very strong malt backbone for balance. Very high bitterness that leads to a dry finish that is pleasant on a beer of this strength as opposed to sweetness that is all to often present in these types of beers. Overall, a very nice job by Foothills and a beer that I wish was more widely available.
