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.

Bottle. Deep gold/orange body with a dense off-white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of citrus, orange juice, resin, pine, grapefruit, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Full to medium body, velvety texture, moderate carbonation. Lingering bitterness. Resin and pine balanced with sweet orange and citrus. Chewy with green, leafy, earthy hop taste on top of sweet, caramel malts.

Pours an amber color with a foamy thick head. The aroma is of dank citrus scented hops and has a defined sweet caramel malt aroma. As I taste this I noticed a medium and pleasant lasting bitterness. There is a good citrus flavor with a potent sugary malted taste. Overall this is drinkable and has a very good body to it. I would have this again.

Yummy! This is a well balanced and slightly more malt forward double ipa. I wanted a little more from the aroma,but the taste really delivered with tons of citrus and resin followed by a caramel malt bill that is quite prominent. Finish is plenty bitter with a slightly lingering sweetness. Appearance has a little bit of floaties, but nothing to dock their score over...

3/10/2015. 22 oz bottle. Clear amber with a large white head. Citrus, malt and caramel aromas. Nice balance, bitter flavors without being over the top. Excellent!

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.

TheEpeeist (3561) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2015
22 oz bottle from Pendulum Fine Meats in Norfolk, VA; cool place. Clear orange with a puffy beige head. Nose is honey, pink grapefruit, grass and slight musk. Oily and resiny medium body with muted carb. Taste is caramel, pine, grass and orange pith. Green and herbal, sticky then dry.

chinchill (3119) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 28, 2015
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.

ben4321 (4831) - 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.

Sampled at esbls. big citrus with tropical fruit flavor and aroma. Cinnamon? Bitterness big but under control. Nice beer.
