A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high frothy white head that died down a bit but consistently left a short head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderately strong aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose - orange and grapefruit seem to stand out in particular.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and quite citrusy but only has a light amount of associated hop bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a nice easy to drink IPA if you like citrusy flavors but don't want lots of hop bitterness.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall white head that fades to a patchy thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of floral and citrus (orange/orange peel) hops over lighter aromas of caramel malts with some light pine hops.

T: Moderate amounts of caramel malt sweetness with slightly stronger flavors of citrus (orange/orange peel) with some more subtle hints of pine hops. Moderate bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation.

O: Enjoyable and easy to drink, this would make a nice summer session beer for warm evenings. Nothing exceptional but a solid offering and one that has improved since Foothills took over.

Poured from 12oz bottle into HF tulip. Pours a hazey orange with slight quick head and some slight lacing. Very strong bitter rye malt aromas with a big hop presence and very mild citrus. Its meh...
Flavor is on the malty side. Really taste like a rye IPA. Im getting some citrus and crisp fresh water type flavor. Its a bit bitter; not the good ipa kind, but a little harsh. Its a better than average brew, but not an amazing ipa.

DFH signature glass

A: Pours a light yellow orange. Really clear after hop haze/chill haze wears off. Not a ton of head, it's bright white what is there. Doesn't leave much lacing.

S: Smells really soapy. Almost like a bad homebrew I made once (sadly). Moderately fruity hops. Nothing crazy. Biscuit malts.

T: On the tip of the tongue, you get a good amount of pine not citrus. Then some fruitless comes in along with malts. Mild breadiness. Close is dry with a mild bitterness.

M: Light leading medium.

This was a gift to me from my friend, San Knocken. Today seems to be a good day for me to drink some IPAs, whether from bottle or CAN.

From the bottle: "True to its roots, this American IPA delivers on the floral, hoppy notes that made Cottonwood Endo a Boone favorite. 100% malted barley and copious amounts of Cascade, Magnum and Chinook hops do the trick, artfully brewed by Foothills."

I was relatively gentle with my pour, but the intense carbonation still produced a finger of bone-white head with decent retention. Color was a light golden-yellow with NE-quality clarity and loads of CO2 bubbles. Nose had kind of a grassy quality, perhaps from the intermingling of the hops. Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was both earthy and grassy, very reminiscent of a wet (fresh)-hopped beer, although that process may not have been used in this case. Finish was semi-dry, very tasty, with a lingering earthiness that lent a tea-like mellowness to the beer.

Poured golden orange with a finger of bright white head. Floral aroma with some mild pine.

Moderate carbonation and a full mouthfeel. Floral notes up front followed by tangerine, orange, honey, and gentle pine bitterness on the tail end.

Nice hop/malt balance here...good IPA.
