I haven't done a review in awhile, but after drinking this one I felt an obligation to come do one.

I bought a six pack at Harris Teeter. Poured into a New Belgium Tulip.

Appearance is a golden copper clear with lots of carbonation bubbles rising up through it. The head was not very large, but didn't go away. The lacing was small bubbles, but not much.

The Smell was a a sweet citrus hoppy one. I didn't notice a floral smell until I drank some.

The Taste was citrusy sweet with a good bitter aftertaste. Nothing to blow your socks off, but still solid. For an IPA I usually expect more bitterness, but this was still good. The malt was subtle, but there.

The mouthful was smooth and carbonated. I could finish the whole six pack in an hour.

This beer to me is a great bridge or session IPA. If I had a brewpub and needed a consumer grade IPA it would hopefully be as good as this one. I'm going to give this to my yellow fizzy beer friends to see if they like it. It is just a good balance between extremes.

I just sat down and popped the cap off a Foothills Cottonwood Endo. This beer poured nicely into a pint glass, with a cloudy amber look & a great 2-3 finger head.

First sip, sweet to the taste! Smooth in the mouth & the transition from sweet to a light bitterness switched over nicely! These flavors rolled together, which I enjoyed very much & the great taste lingered on the taste buds for awhile. It wasn't like you needed to go back & chase the taste because it stuck around. Very good!!!

I also enjoyed the aroma, which came with every sip & the lacing was excellent. Happy nose, happy mouth from beginning to end. Definately the hang loose sign to Foothills Brewing, WELL DONE!

This one pours up a very clean and clear gold with a one finger head, not much retention, and not much lacing. The nose is lemon, honey, oranges, and biscuit and is a fairly strong smell. Taste is a lot of citrus followed by a goodly amount of spicy hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is nothing special. I enjoyed this one and recommend it.

Enjoyed on-tap in a mug.

A: Pours a light to medium golden color with a 1 finger head and nice lacing.

S: Decent amount of floral and citrus hops balanced nicely with bready malts.

T: Nicely balanced hops and malts with a good amount of bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with good carbonation.

O: Very well balanced IPA that's extremely easy to drink. Not too hoppy and could be enjoyed by the average beer drinker.

3.93/5  rDev +10.7%

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a golden yellow color and a clear texture. There was a half inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: A typically IPA aroma: Hoppy, citrusy, and sweet.

T: Tasted of hops (not too over the top), citrus, and some malt in the finish. A decent, well rounded flavor that's a bit more subtle than I expected.

M: A well-carbonated beer that's a bit slick in the finish. Medium-bodied.

O: On the whole, this is a solidly made, easy to drink IPA.
