COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There are ten states that make up what we call our distribution footprint. Each state made a unique contribution to Footprint. This artful ale is our tribute to these states in which our beer is available. The result is a crafty collective of regional flavors:

Colorado – Hops and barley
Arizona – Prickly pear
Idaho – Barley and hops
Kansas – Wheat
Minnesota – Wild Rice
Missouri – Oak Barrels
Nebraska – Corn
New Mexico – Green Chiles
South Dakota – Barley and honey
Wyoming – wheat

50% ale brewed with honey, 10% ale brewed with honey and aged in wine barrels, 40% ale brewed with honey and natural flavors added

arminjewell (5995) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2012
Pour out of bottle at the brewery, hazy orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of slight biscuit, some citrus and fruit notes with a hint of esters, some slight honey and a hint of oak. Messy. Taste is decent but nondescript, some slight biscuit, bready notes, touch of sweet honey, esters in there, touch of oak and a slight hint of chili, very misplaced. Overall a messy beer but nothing really wrong with it.

750 ml thanks to Craig. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A nice hoppy aroma of fruit, mostly oranges. A sweet dry flavor of honey and wheat, loads of citrus hops, very smooth and easygoing. Good.

750ml Bottle: Got in trade from stumpyiliz; THANKS Aaron! Aroma of malt, hops, citrus, oranges, fruit, a hint of honey, and a hint of chili. Poured orange in color with a large, loose, rocky, foamy, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Very hazy. Sparkling. Full of tiny-sized particles throughout. Flavor is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, citrus, orange, grain, and a hint of resin. Medium body. Sticky, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, citrus, orange, hop finish is dry. 9.5%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

Strykzone (4782) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Lightly hazed golden with a white head. A sweet grainy honey nose. An interesting flavor profile. Wheat, cloves, honey, soft hops. Interesting.

notalush (4766) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Mostly clear gold - a fairly straightforward, clean and moderately sweet DIPA - flavors of vanilla and earthy hops, with a bit of coconut and a cool, minty character from the hops - very well-hidden alcohol - lingering vanilla - not bad - not sure what makes it worth 14 bucks a bottle.

750ml C&C bottle picked up at a little gas station in Pocatello
Appearance: Hazy golden with a medium sized white head and some lacing
Aroma: Wheat, honey, floral and piney
Taste: Wheat, tangerine and lemon zest
It was OK, not impressed though.

onceblind (3933) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2012
Slightly hazy gold with a good sized rocky head. Nice complex aroma of sweet pale malts, honey, floral + herbal hoppiness, subtle spicy rye, some apricot, and a bit of oak. Charming mouthfeel, with nice balance and complexities. Starts kinda cereal like and sweet malty, but quickly gathers tones of slightly sour’d oak, a little wheat, some pepperiness, some slight herbal tones, oak, and a pleasant and balancing bitterness on the finish accompanied with some alcoholic warmth. Essentially a nuanced imperial blonde ale. Didn’t knock my socks off, but it is a friggin cool idea, and pretty well executed.

vyvvy (3876) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Pours copper / golden with a white head. The aroma is a bit sweet and doesn’t show the high abv. Don’t know if its from reading the bottle, but I taste the green chilis and some oak. The different grains aren’t as easy to pick out, but there is a bit maltiness to it. Don’t notice the prickly pear on the aroma. Really nice. Full body with lots of frothy carbonation. The flavor starts with honey, cotton candy, spicy chilis, light comes and a good deal of complexity. I’m sure some of the complexity comes from things I’m not used to having in beer like corn and wild rice. There are some spicy hops on the finish. Overall an interesting and pleasant beer.

drfabulous (3828) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 8, 2012
750 brought back from Nebraska by my wife. Slight sugary sweet taste. Honey is pretty dominant. Pineapple. Citrus. Not in nose but in body. Behind that sweetness the slight taste/heat of chili pepper. Nice beer.
