COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The sharpest focus was put into our IPA. Massive late and dry-hop additions give FOTO an intense hop aroma and flavor without an over-powering bite. ABR2012 was the official release of FOTO!

jackl (5806) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Bottle at my hotel’s bar. Amber pour with a small white head. Nose is quite sweet. Candied orange peel, brown sugar. Some dank grassiness and a bit of grapefruit. Taste has a pretty sharp bitter character to it. Unbridled, dirty, and not in a very good way. Hot sweet caramel backbone. Medium body, active carb. Not that great.

VeinAle (123) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Aroma is earthy citrus and resinous hop. Golden in color with moderate carbonation. Taste is sweet hop with a bitter finish, some balancing malt in the palate. Poured from a six pack, would stock it in the situation that I needed some local IPA.

AWISLguy (1762) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle from Four Firkins with a 7/31/14 bottle date. Pours a golden orange with a white spongey head. Nice streaks of lace. Aroma has orange juice and pine. Later some tropical fruits and some caramel show through. Taste is of bitter citrus fruits, tangy pine, some chewy resin and light biscuity malts. Flavors are all there; just a bit muted. Medium bodied and somewhat sticky. Finishes more bitter than sweet, although somewhat balanced. Shrug? Decent, but needs more oomph of something. 13.5
