Pours deep golden/ruby. Aroma is sweet fruits and floral hops. Taste is fruity and sweet, yet well balanced with a good hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and a nice bitterness left on the tongue. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Very good high gravity IPA. I’ve enjoyed several Foothills brews and really like the dlouble IPAs so I’ll compare this to Dogfish Head 90 (a most excellent brew). The aroma is a bit heavy on hops, but very pleasant. The appearance is more gold than amber with just a bit of bubbly. The pour was good with just enough head but not too foamy. The taste is remarkably smoothe for an IPA, yet still hoppy and full of flavor. The pint+6 is also a great size vs. 2 twelves. I’ll probably stick with the Dogfish Head 90, but this is just behind.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden orange color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting cap/ring. Splotchy lacing left behind.
Slightly earthy citrus hop aroma with dank buds, resinous, grassy pine needle and tropical fruit notes. Floral grass notes and pine needle followed by hints of mango, pineapple, grapefruit and lemon peel. Surprising citrus/tropical fruit character countered by subtle bread and biscuit malt.
Medium bodied with a blast of earthy bitterness that lingers over the sweet tropical/citrus fruit notes and pale malt backbone into a dry finish. Sticky, dry and bitter with grassy, piney hops followed by grapefruit sweetness, pineapple and orang zest. Malt backbone is a touch stronger than expected balancing things out but doesn’t interfere with the hop flavor. Some toffee, biscuit, bread and graham cracker flavor in the finish. Well balanced and easy to drink with subtle alcohol heat in the finish yet the abv is well masked. Nice 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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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...

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.
