22 oz bottle poured into a snifter at cellar temperature.
L – Medium amber color with a 2-finger foamy, rocky, cream-colored head. Nice retention and some great sticky lacing. Clear with lots of bubbles.
S – A nice mix of hop aromas including pine, orange, and peach. There are some bready and caramel malt aromas here, as well.
T – It follows the nose nearly exactly. It starts off with a solid backbone of sweet bready and caramel malt and progresses to a smooth hoppy bitterness with mostly pine and also some grapefruit, orange, and peach notes.
F – Medium-bodied with decent carbonation, a chewy and sticky mouthfeel, and a bitter, dry finish. Bitter citrus, fruity, and piney hops linger for a while. There’s maybe a bit of warmth from the alcohol, but it’s extremely well-hidden.
O – This is a nice DIPA. It’s not overly complex or groundbreaking but it’s a very solid example of the style. It has a nice balance between the malt and hops and is extremely drinkable especially given the ABV. If you like DIPAs and can get your hands on it, it’s worth a try.

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Bottleneck says 01302014.
A- Pours a clean medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before reducing to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and various thicknesses of surface foam. Sudsy non-resilient lacing.
S- Pungent and grassy hop aroma that also brings citrus notes like pineapple and grapefruit.
T- The citrus flavors come through in the flavor well coupled with a firm but controlled bitterness. Very drinkable for the ABV and the grass notes linger on the tongue for a bit. Juicy and tangy.
M- Vibrant and sharp with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.
O- I really dig how fruit-forward this DIPA is while having a solid bitterness that's not overbearing. Foothills knows their hops.

3.75/5 rDev -7.9%

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, copper-gold coloring with a fluffy, tight bubbled, white head. Aromas of spice and resinous hops, with grapefruit and tropical fruits abound. Flavors are roast forward, with a toffee and roasted backbone supporting a blending of tropical fruit rich sweetness and peppery spiced notes. Balanced and smooth. The aftertaste is resinous and tangy sweet, with a smooth, clean finish. Tasty and surprisingly drinkable.
