Foothills is one of the breweries local to my area (central NC). Recently had my first Hoppyum at a "beer dinner" in which beers are paired with various food courses.

A: Typical IPA appearance: copper color, 2-finger head at the pour, some lacing.
S: Citrusy and piney. Very pungent. Awesome. What you want an IPA to smell like.
T: Solid hoppy flavor from start to finish. Very aggressive hops at the front with some grapefruit at the mid-palate. Nice bitterness throughout, but especially at the end.
M: Silky, which was surprising. Not overly dry, but very the dryness is evident.
O: Very enjoyable IPA, with some real complexity. Surprising "pop" of hops in the nose.

Had on draft at Grays Tavern in Greensboro NC $3.75 for a pint

A: Golden orange color with a white head that left a fair amount of lacing on the glass.

S: Citrus and hops not very strong though.

T: More citrus in the taste fairly malty for an IPA

M: Went down easy, and lacked the IPA bitterness that Im used to. Right amount of carbonation.

O: This is alright I probably wont buy it again. Its a solid starter IPA if your new to craft beer. Nothing really makes this stand out.

An assertive pour resulted in some floaties throughout the copper beer. An initial two finger off white head fades to a smattering. Nice aroma of sweet tangerine and caramel, whereas the flavor is far drier with hop bitterness that lingers on the tongue. There are hints of tropical fruit and almond. The alcohol is slightly noticeable in this medium bodied brew. It's a drinkable, middle of the road IPA.
