BEER INFO

Brewed by:

North Carolina, United States
foothillsbrewing.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.30%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The recipe is simple. Take some hoppy. Add some yum. Nutty malts lend a surprisingly sweet base to copious additions of tangerine-y Simcoe™ hops. Great aroma, superior taste, clean dry finish. One sip will show you why this is our most popular beer . . . followed closely by a strong desire to take another sip.

There's a bottling code, but its not quite legible

Appearance - Pours mostly clear and golden in color with an off-white, near finger width head. Good retention before dying to a thin, broken layer of suds, thickening up around the edge of the glass. Strong lacing decorates the glass in broken sheet and webbing.

Smell - Dank, almost herbal hop aroma with hints of lemongrass and a faint biscuity malt character.

Taste - Follows the nose. Hops are prominent with herbal, floral and slightly citrusy flavors. Mild spice bite. Biscuity, lightly nutty malt backbone. Finishes much the same, with lingering lemongrass and herbal qualities.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with fair carbonation. Slick, easy drinker with a light, dry finish.

Overall - Kind of an odd IPA, but I give it credit for its uniqueness. Would I buy it again? Probably not.

I've kinda grown out of IPAs...but am rating this one as compared to other IPAs. If I want an IPA, this is my top choice. Smells of citrus. Not too sticky or syrupy. Strong hoppy, bitter taste, but not so much as to not be drinkable. I don't drink IPAs often anymore, but this is probably my favorite one. Noticeably better on tap.

visiting east coast and came across this. Look smell and taste of an IPA. A bit more bitterness on the back end then I enjoy but it gets the job done and will be a good memory of the trip.

Pours the color of honey. Nose is almost bready as is the taste...initially. The hops make an appearance late on the palate. There is a lingering flavor of bready and hop bitterness. Good beer.

As a North Carolinian I am always in the market for a local IPA. This beer is admittedly tasty with a nutty finish. However, I am particularly sensitive to coffee. It does not have anything to do with the caffeine aspect, but there is something in coffee which really messes with my adrenal's yet energy drinks sit fine with me. This IPA gave my body the same reaction I experience from coffee where my heart races and I overall feel not so great. If you have a sensitivity to coffee than I would avoid this beer despite it's tempting taste.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a caramel color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of malts, citrus. Taste is well balanced hops and malts, some citrus, mild bitterness. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking beer, however, it lacks some of the punch usually associated with this style.

Hazy light amber with a white head, receded fairly quickly; Smooth fresh hoppy aroma; Smooth tangy pleasantly carbonated mouthfeel. Mild pleasant flavor. A tasty drinkable beer, enjoyable. Don't know if I can get it locally, but it's worth having again.
