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.

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.

On tap at Foothills in Winston-Salem. Pours a murky orange, little to no head. The menu said floral and citrusy, and it certainly is. The nose is extremely fresh, estery, piney. I also get a lot of grapefruit and fruity sweetness. Taste is similar, with a ton of sweetness at the forefront. A nice hoppy bite finishes it off, with a fading sweet tingle. Little carbonation. A very good beer.

Cybercat (3228) - Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Comes out of the tap an appetizing, slightly hazy golden with a decent off-white head. Strong aroma is very hoppy, more evergreen than woody. Richly hoppy flavor has a firm resiny tone and hints of malt and honey. Firm, lively texture leaves a hoppy and only slightly bitter finish. You won’t be jaded after this one.
