4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

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.

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

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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,

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

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.
