Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Bottleneck says 01302014.

A- Pours a clean medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before reducing to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and various thicknesses of surface foam. Sudsy non-resilient lacing.

S- Pungent and grassy hop aroma that also brings citrus notes like pineapple and grapefruit.

T- The citrus flavors come through in the flavor well coupled with a firm but controlled bitterness. Very drinkable for the ABV and the grass notes linger on the tongue for a bit. Juicy and tangy.

M- Vibrant and sharp with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- I really dig how fruit-forward this DIPA is while having a solid bitterness that's not overbearing. Foothills knows their hops.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, copper-gold coloring with a fluffy, tight bubbled, white head. Aromas of spice and resinous hops, with grapefruit and tropical fruits abound. Flavors are roast forward, with a toffee and roasted backbone supporting a blending of tropical fruit rich sweetness and peppery spiced notes. Balanced and smooth. The aftertaste is resinous and tangy sweet, with a smooth, clean finish. Tasty and surprisingly drinkable.
