look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a half finger high off white head that died down but never completely faded away and left a good amount of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: There are aromas of earthy yeast and herbal hops in the nose along with some hints of grapefruit and caramel malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has a light to moderate amount of bitterness. The taste seems unusual for an IPA and has lots of flavors of herbal hops and some hints of mushrooms.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. There is some dryness in the finish.
O: This beer has a nice amount of bitterness for an IPA but seemed like it could have used better flavors from the hops.

Had on-tap at Westville Pub Asheville. Served in a pint glass.
A- Pours a light amber color with a 1/4 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of sheer surface foam.
S- Mildly citrusy hop aroma and a faint whiff of booze.
T- Good hop flavor with some moderate bitterness. It doesn't point toward any one particular direction. Just some mild citrus and on into the bitterness which actually becomes more and more intense with each sip. Touch of bready malt brings a slight balance. Alcohol is decently concealed.
M- Slightly sharp with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.
O- Nothing spectacular but it's better than the BA score gives it credit for. Just needs a bit more balance.

What I am about to say isn't a bash on this well balanced east coast (u.s) ipa. Nice amber finish in glass (draft). Hops taste great but a bit spicy so if you aren't used to eastcoast ipas you may not like this ipa. Honestly to me not much of a potent smell from the draft. All in all I would definitely order this beer again and foothills brewing should not be overlooked.
