COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Foothills’ first high gravity beer may have you Seeing Double. The hops are balanced with just enough body to craft a highly drinkable brew. Expect a full body and a hint of citrus from the seven varieties of hops added to the brew. IBU: 126.

Courtesy dsnowden. Pours an amber/maroon with a small light tan head. Smells of grapefruit hops, with a big malt background. Maybe a little dark fruit in there too. The taste is very sweet and malty in the taste. Alot of caramel in there along with hops. The hops are most detectable in the finish and the aftertaste. Its not as nearly hoppy as you’d expect being a double IPA, the malt was just huge in this beer. Stil pretty good, not what I was expecting.

On tap at Foothills brewpup. I enjoyed this one alot. Very drinkable and hoppy all in one. Syrupy and slightly sticky mouthfeel. Sweet taste throughout. Caramel, citrus and fruit; with a substantial bitterness at the end.

Ordered on tap at Flying Saucer- Charlotte. A full maltiness offsets the 100+ IBUs nicely. Not a lot of pine or citrus, but rather a strawberry/kiwi flavor with a thick mouthfeel. This beers density works on a cool winter night, its fruitiness on a warm summer evening. Wither way - a lot of bang for the buck in this $2.50 pint special.

Shared by sliffy. Dark and murky chestnut body. The aroma is a combination of candy caramel and cintrus hops--very nice. The mouthfeel is thick and syrupy--but not medicinal. The flavor is definitely sweet, plenty of caramel malt presence for sure. The hops are very bitter tastewise, but do not overpower the rest of the beer. Very good stuff.

Growler courtesy of gottalottaibu (thanks alex): Pours amber with a creamy off white head. Aroma, citrus and earthy hops abound with some caramel and pale malts. Flavor, juicy citrus hop notes, with some caramel malts, and a nice underlying sweetness, a pretty solid bit of bitterness comes through on the end. Medium bodied, very easy drinking. Great stuff.

on tap-pours an off white head and cloudy copper color. Aroma is sweet citrus hops, good secondary medium malt. Swirl it and it changes character to candy sugar, dark fruit, alcohol-like a Belgian quad? Taste is citrus/pine-hops, medium malt-sweet. Thick mouth feel, alcohol. Mild carbonation. Sipping.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2007
On tap @ Barley’s taproom in Asheville. Poured a clear deep orange color with a tight white head. Sharp, strong pineapple and grapefruit hop aromas assault the nose. Viscous sticky palate. Strong deep pineapple taste dominate with the finish marked by a rich sweetness. A unique DIPA, in that I haven’t had one with quite the flavor this one has.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2009 Hazy amber pour. Fluffy white head and thick drippy lace. Grapefruit and light pine on the nose. Citrus and grapefruit with a balanced finish

Draft, pint glass...very tasty double IPA, citrusy but not very bitter, nice color with not much head, silky and warm, it will do more than make you see double...it will numb your tongue too.

Appearance: Pours a highly appealing, radiant golden-orange color. The bulky, creamy white head leaves plenty of lace on the way down. Smell: The pungent smell of this brew really packs a wallop! The aroma is quite fragrant, showcasing a juicy endless array of zesty citrus and pine scents. Taste: The colossal malt base is more than a match for the monster hop flavors. It’s like Malthra and Hopzilla duking it out in my mouth for palate supremacy. I dare say this one’s a tie! The rich caramal malt flavor is splendid, as is the robust lemon and pineapple hop flavor it balances. Mouthfeel: Medium-full body with a mild carbonation and oh-so creamy. Drinkability: Incredibly drinkable. I went back for seconds! No joke!
