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.

Bomber all to myself! Pours a deep orange color with about half a finger of off white head. There are some serious floaters in this beer that sit suspended in the beer. The aroma is very fruity with notes of citrus. On first taste there is a lack of astringent hop presence that I crave in IIPA’s but it finishes with a nice citrus and floral hop bitterness. This is a solid IIPA that wears its 9.5% well.

Pours a slightly hazy honey-orange color with a large off-white bubbly head. Huge aroma, Bitter grapefruit citrus up front, some nice mango notes, a little floral, slightly boozy and a nice warm malt note in the back. Lots of bitterness on the taste, somewhat piney, lots of citrus and grapefruit, caramel, bready malt, and a fantastic floral character. Booze is hidden well in the taste, fruity and floral hop profiles meld great and the malt balances it all out fantastically.

Brilliant head and lace, solid retention too. Tons of malt; definitely of the East Coast style. Mild pine, mostly earthy and juicy hops. Tasty.

Bomber. Pours a cloudy orange color with a small foamy head that fades to a ring, leaves some nice webbing. Aromas are citrus fruit, caramel, sugary fruit juice, tea, flowers and grapefruit. Taste is pretty sweet with only a moderate bitterness. Has a pretty nice complexity but the flavors don’t seem to mix well. Tastes buttery with lots of sugary citrus juice, caramel and flowers. Medium body and a great oily and buttery mouthfeel. Overall, a bit odd but decent. Lots to like but some flaws too.

Bottle shared thanks to rbrazell! Pours a hazy copper from the bottle with thin lacy off-white head that leaves light spotting. Aroma of caramel malt, booze, and sweet citrus. Taste follows, a bit more balanced. Pretty decent, but nothing exciting.

Bottle from rbrazel! Sun burst orange. Sweet citrus candy aroma. Mouth feel is really sweet and sticky. To cloyingly sweet. I don’t like the super sweet ipas.

Bottle from CBX. Clear bet pour with a bubbly white head. Sweet caramel malt and toast in the nose with citrus and pine. Sweet, resiny flavor with toast and caramel malts leading to a bitter end. Meh, a little too sweet.

Enjoyed a glass of this beer at the brewpub in Winston-Salem, NC. The beer had a hazy deep orange-amber color with a small white head that had modest retention, and lighter cling and lacing. It featured a strong citrus and spice aroma with a touch of pine and a slight earthyness. The beer was a sour and bitter mix with a strong citrus hop character along with some lighter notes of pine and straw. It had a very dry body and a quite filling mouthfeel, with low carbonation and a thick character.
