2.98/5 rDev -26.4%
On tap in a shaker pint, a hazy dark honey colored brew. Light scattered lacing is left from the finger's worth of foamy head.
Lots of citrusy hops and caramel in the nose. Smells like it's gonna be one of those big hearty and juicy DIPAs, and that's what it proves to be. The caramel sweetness seems to snowball throughout the consumption of the pint. A little thickish and coating as well. Too malty, but there's plenty of citric hop flavor. Bitterness somewhat lacking (or unable to cut through the sweetness), but it's tasty. A bit of burn in the finish. No grit, no dryness. Rather boozy finish.
Overall impression: Another 'overmalted' east coast (D)IPA. Foothills makes some fine brews, but this one's forgettable.

Poured a cloudy amber with a good and lacing. A promising start. The smell is grainy with tobacco, swwet malt, and spicy hops. Not bad, definitely a big beer. The taste is a little disappointing. Too sweet, and with a slight sourness that seems out of place.Hoppy finish is nice but a little overwhelmed. Mouthfeel is too grainy and slippery- there needs to be an edge here. Too out of whack for me to drink much of, unbalanced. I had this at the Hickory Hops fest from the brewer, so I doubt I had a bad batch, but from the other glowing reviews I hope so. I expected more.

650 mL bottle poured into an Allagash chalice.
Appearance - Hazy and doesn't produce much of a head even with a vigorous pour. Builds at the very end. It even gets darker as more sediment flows in. Orange body with chunks of white residue floating about.
Smell - Citrus and some tropical fruits. Lots of sweet malts. Equally dominant as the hops, or perhaps the tropical fruits and sweet malts just enhance each other.
Taste - As malty as it is hoppy. Lots of residual sugars. Same citrus hop, less of the tropical fruits. Malts dominate immediately after the initial flavor. Bitterness builds and even turns grassy in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Heavy, too heavy for me. Overly sweet. Medium carbonation and moderate bitterness.
Overall - Just too sugary for my tastes. "Balanced" doesn't really apply. Run-of-the-mill east coast IPA.

A: Pours a dark, hazy orange with a finger of dense white head that sticks around for the haul. It leaves a solid sheet of white lacing down the sides.
S: smells surprisingly light, with light citrus notes and some grassy aromas.
T: taste is similar to the aroma with a lot of light citrus and pine notes with a light bitter finish. Nothing in your face and an overall very light DIPA.
M: medium-light body and carbonation.
D: goes down pretty smooth with its light characters.
Overall a decent DIPA, but a bit too light for my liking.
