I can't say this beer is bad, it's just nothing special.

Pours a nice color, thin white head.

Smells like "beer" with a very faint citrus smell.

Tastes similar. Some malt, some hop, just not enough of either to really stand out.

Mouthfeel, again, it's just bland.

Overall, I'm glad I only paid a $1 for it, but then again, I didn't pour it out. If I didn't review it, I'd probably forget all about it.

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!

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.
