Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Pours a nice gold color, 2 fingers of soapy white head, nice lacing as well.
S - Very floral, nice crackery malt, but the aroma is really weak.
T - Big time floral bitterness, some pine, big grapefruit in the end.
M - A tad watery, and more dry bitterness.
O - Not bad, unique for what it is, but a far cry from great.

12 ounce bottle -> Grand Teton Brewing snifter

A - pours up medium gold with nice off white head, okay retention, and lots of lacing

S - floral, citrus, pine, resin, what do you expect?

T - follows the nose with some notes of honey

M - lingering bitterness, adequate carbonation.

O - a nice offering that I would be happy to revisit

After a long hard Friday and Saturday night w/ no beer, Sunday welcomed a new beggining....Foothills Brewing Co. Hoppyyum IPA...bought in NC.
I put the chicken quarters on the smoker, popped open a 22 oz bottle and poured it into my 22 oz homebrew glass...
Very nice orange hue w/ white foamy head...
I would say the body compliments the ABV perfectly.
Very floral scent-very similar to Harpoon IPA only a bit more bold.
It also tastes very similar to Harpoon-floral, piney...mild citrus and a bit of peach...
Bitterness is immediate and lingers a bit after each swallow.
Very good beer and if it were available in my area, I would be a repeat buyer. Pick one up if you have not had one.
I rate it 3.9
