From a growler. Copper in color with a thin wispy head. Aroma of candy sugars and spruce trees. More of a balanced DIPA. Sweet caramel malts and some piney and citrus hops. Slick syrupy feeling. Very drinkable. Another fine beer from Foothills.

ben4321 (4253) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2015
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
Overall Impression: 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.

dinkle50 (1033) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2014
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.

Very hoppy. Pretty good body. Nice lacing. Otherwise a mainstream IPA. Not much else.

tmoreau (2627) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2014 Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing a hazed to cloudy, orangey gold color, with a presentable layer of off white head foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was dank & leafy, with maybe some light esters as pit fruit & citrus, and a hint of caramel sweetness. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, as not too much fruit transferred to the taste, which showed a strong, very lingering, rindy bitterness that seemed to mask the alcohol, and was tempered only slightly by some malt sweetness. An earthy & hearty DIPA,

roder60 (1288) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Pours a hazy light orange yellow with big frothy white head. Much lighter appearance than would be expected. Aroma sugared orange with slight citrus twang. Flavor surprisingly light on palate and perfectly balanced. Bit of dry bite up front then citrusy slight sweet middle and very mild warming boozy hop finish. Love it. Totally kickass beer.

Near clear yellow copper. Aroma is orange biscuit. Taste is orange and bitter sour candy. Enjoyable and somewhat complex.

Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some orange citrus and biscuit malt notes. The flavor is amid of grass and orange but tastes a bit old overall. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
