The aroma is hoppy with citrus, pine, and hay. The malts are there but don’t balance well. The appearance is deep copper gold with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a decent beer.

Ugh my rating just got erased by my fat fingers or stupid phone. Probably the latter. Anyway, a much improved Endo here, better than Hoppyum even. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber from Beer Run. Pours a clear pale amber color with a medium sized white head. Good head retention. Aroma of toasted caramel malts and herbal, floral hops. The taste is raw malt, earthy, vegetal and minty hops. Medium bodied, lingering hop bitterness, average carbonation. Decent.

Rated at Brew Bern 2012. This was my favorite IPA of the festival. Super hoppy and really easy to drink, this will cleanse your palate and provide you with some great taste at the same time. Really glad I found this one.

tkrjukoff (4334) - SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2012
Bottle 12 oz, total wines & more. Pours clear golden amber with a decent creamy white head leaving some lace. Aroma is very fruity, citric, piny, a bit sweet, malty, caramel and toasted. Flavor isbitter fruity and a bit acidy in front, more malty body in the middle with sharp citric bitterness turning to dry fruity longlived bitterness towards the end. Very drinkable, clean and crispy.

On tap at the brewery. Again, a beer I did not really drink much of when it was brewed elsewhere, but it seems like Foothills made these beers better. Maybe its just my slant towards the brewery. Pretty good stuff, easy drinking, smooth, hoppy...not bad.

Citrus aroma, floral and citrus taste. Mouthfeel is excellent and finishes clean and sexy. Good overall ipa, like local Sweetwater

Bottle pours clear golden witha white head that leaves lacing all downtempo glass. Aromas are big citrus and some pine. Great on the nose. Taste is grapefruit, pine, and a bit of tangerine. Body is thin, but Ames this sessionable. A very delicious surprise from Foothills.

CPDalton (67) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - APR 10, 2012
Color is golden with one finger of head, looks like it will lace nicely. Smell is extremely sweet and fruity, almost a strawberry scent. The taste follows the nose well, but has a small kick of hops at the end. Not too bitter however, so of that's your thing you might be disappointed. It's unique, and I like that.
