2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
A: Pours a murky orange gold 1" craggy head retaining well. looks like orange Gatorade (or Sculpin).
S: Grapefruit pith and pine. Cascade calling card right? (like a diluted Sculpin)
T: Sort of like a watered down Sculpin but less oniony. Not that I donít find it pretty good but hardly original. And no I donít taste any malted barley.
M: Thin with a tingly carbonation. Bitter finish.
O: I had high hopes for this but am disappointed. I am a huge fan of Foothills Pilsner but have not found any other of their offerings noteworthy. Seriously, why donít they just do away with the APA style altogether and call it what it is: fucking American IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
This easygoing American Pale Ale joins toasted malts, orangey hops and their resinous bitterness in a balanced effort.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the shiny dark golden.
-Once again, this is another lean and clean Foothills brew which knows how to quench.
-While this one is not reinventing the wheel, it does everything well.
On tap at the brewpub.

Not a lot of flavor other than the hops. Decent lacing. Bitter aftertaste.

Pours a nice clear golden with a respectable pale buff head. Strong, malty aroma has a firm hoppy accompaniment. Flavor is malty and hoppy, enjoyable if not complex. Mouthfeel is thin and not fizzy, but not off-putting. If not breat, worth a flight.

3/19/14. Growler from Whole Foods. Pours frothy with a nice two finger head that gives way to thick lacing. Strong hop nose for a pale. Good flavor and balance for a lighter (almost session) pale ale.

Draft to pint. Looks solid; a slightly cloudy deeper orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells solid; a fairly bitter hop profile with a medium-bodied pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid IPA.

11/27/13. On tap at the Mellow Mushroom in downtown Asheville. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Surprisingly bland aroma, muted citrus and earthy hops, plenty of maltiness. Same on the flavor - I was hoping for more hop out of these guys. Caramel, bread, biscuit, light citrus and earthy hops. Disappointed.

One of the better pale ales I have had. Really bitter and hoppy. Pours a dark yellow in color. Has a slight hops aroma
