    [Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

    The pour was a hazy medium amber orange with an average (1-2 finger) white sudsy head that slowly receded, down to a medium film and large collar with excellent sticky lacing.

    The aroma was of grain malts, floral and pine hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit and orange).

    The taste was a bit malty with a hint of caramel and a mild citrus sweetness early on, progressing with a nice bitter piney hop taste, a bit of grapefruit with a mildly bitter floral ending. The flavor lasted an average time following the swallow, with a hoppy citrus taste left behind to linger on the taste buds.

    Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry yet somewhat creamy texture and a medium carbonation.

    Overall this is a very simple IPA, a dose of hops, caramel and a touch of citrus. Sometimes simplicity is the best way to go. Simply delicious...

    I love IPA's and this is a true favorite of mine. Just love the Hoppy taste and it makes me happy. Foothills does a great job with their beers!

    Pours a deep gold with a sticky white head. Just from the aroma, I know this is going to pack quite the hops punch. Loads of Simcoe hops and their distinctive grapefruit aroma comes through most noticeably.

    This is one for you hopheads. Along with the Simcoe, plenty of Columbus, Centennial, and Cascade balance the hops flavors among each other. Slightly toasted malt is evident in the finish, but the hops are the whole story here. Long, dry, puckeringly bitter finish. Clocks in at 78 IBUs, but I expected it to be closer to 100. As it warms, everything mellows out and becomes much easier to drink.

    One for hopheads, for sure, but let it go for a bit and it becomes very tasty, indeed. Packs a lot of punch, but good harmony among the hops varieties.
