4.38/5 rDev +7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Purchased a growler on Sunday (2/28) at the brewpub. Poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a medium amber brown with a hint of orange and a 1 finger white foamy head. Almost no lacing.
Smell: Pine and citrus with subtle hints of caramel.
Taste: Grapefruit and citrus rind flavor mixed with pine up front. Nice sweet caramel malt flavor in the middle followed by a nice hoppy bitterness that finishes very nicely.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a decent amount of carbonation.
Drinkability: Very high drinkability for a beer with 9.5% ABV. This is a beer that will sneak up on you because the flavor doesn't give much indication that the ABV is high.
Overall: Excellent double IPA. It's one of my new favorites. I will definitely be making the drive to get a refill sometime in the near future.
Serving type: growler

4.24/5 rDev +4.2%

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.
