Pours a nice clear medium amber with a hint of red. Ample head and a lacing that lasts. Nice nose of citrus hops over a slight pine and slight sweet biscuit character. Light body with a smooth texture. Above average carbonation. Nice balanced taste of hops, mostly citrus but with a notable pine influence, biscuit and bitterness. It begins with citrus, progresses to pine and associated pleasant bitterness over a biscuit sweetness. It then effervesces into a tart bitterness that approaches dry. A slight sweetness and tart bitterness lingers. Very well balanced and flavorful.

12oz Bottle poured into a pint glass.

A- Light amber color with a soapy head that holds well. Has some particulate matter throughout.

S- Fresh hops, pine, citrus, a little sweet malt towards the end.

T- Great balance between bitter hops and citrus flavors. Finish is bitter with a piney aftertaste. Sweet malt throughout that helps wash it down. Bitter soap is left behind.

M- Very good for the style. It has a medium-light body with good carbonation.

O- A good IPA from Foothills that I find myself going to time and time again. The sediment found in this bottle, in fact the whole 12pk, is not usually present in others I've had.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a dark, caramel-copper coloring with a thin halo of white head. Nose of deep, resinous hops, bitter and piney throughout. Flavors are more malt forward, with rich caramel and roasted notes. Bitter hop character provides a dark, oily backbone. Smooth bodied, with a drying finish. The aftertaste is oily and resinous, with subtle citrus notes, too. Different and tasty.

A bubbly three-finger head rests atop of a golden honey body. Foothills definitely knows how to make an attractive looking beer. The nose is lightly hoppy and grassy with a floral edge. The taste, at first sweet and delicate like dandelion tea bursts into lightly-hopped, slightly medicinal, grassy notes at the finish. The bitterness does not overpower the initial flavors, creating an harmonious balance of naughty and nice.

I can still remember the first time that I had this IPA on a cold Halloween evening in 2011 with a cute guy pulled close to me on the couch at a crowded bar. It set the mood then, and it's certainly giving me considerable pleasure now, even after 3 years. Way to go Foothills! This one's a winner!
