3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, unknown date. Served at around 45F.
Pours copper/amber with a one finger off-white head that leaves nice drippy lacing and recedes to a small cap.
Aroma is earthy and floral hops with some citrus, apricot and pine, also good amount of caramel malt. Good to very good strength.
Flavor is resinous hops, some orange citrus, pine, floral hops, big caramel malt, mild to moderate balancing sweetness, very good bitterness on the finish, decent bit of alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, chewy, sticky, good carbonation.
Very hoppy and great bitterness...more caramel malt than I care for though, but still a good Double IPA.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
I love hoppyum so I was assuming this was going to be an amped up version of it. It’s good but for me not amazing. There’s a really big malty sweetness and not much hoppiness to back it up. There’s a big grassiness and sweet taste. I hate to be the guy who says it but I’m really not loving this. I was expecting something different.

Draft at the Community Tap. Yellow/orange pour with a white head. Herbal hop aromas. Medicinal/herbal hop notes. Hoppy and bitter with an undersized malt backbone. Average body and mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Poured clear light amber with a generous and thick foamy off-white head; corresponding lacing. The aroma is appealing, but less hoppy than expected.
T - too sweet and short on hops, if judged by style. Ignoring that, this is a bold, well balanced ale that drinks like a bold APA with well-hidden ABV, although the alcohol adds complexity.
M - near medium body with medium+ carbonation. The higher ABV adds some warmth
O - this surprising "double IPA" is balanced and easy drinking.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Bruisin’ Ales, 1/5/15
Aroma: The aroma is lighter than I expected, citrus/orange, pine notes, dough, and booze
Appearance: This one pours a clear orange color with a beige head that coats the glass
Flavor: The sweetness and citrus are subtle, bitterness comes through more than anything else
Palate: Medium-plus bodied, light heat, with a soft-to-average carbonation, and a dry finish
This one definitely needs to warm up a bit, when it is too cold the aroma is a little lacking. Once it warns up, it improves, but it still isn’t amazing. A DIPA from Foothills? Sounded exciting. This is okay, but I expected this one to be better.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy golden pour with a single finger head. Aroma of pine, citrus. Strong grapefruit bitterness. Medium mouth. Lots of citrus in this one. Not overly balanced being a hop bomb, but it is pretty drinkable for how bitter it is.
