BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Foothills Brewing Company - Downtown Brewpub
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.

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.

Fresh bottle in a cold glass. Good head and okay lacing. Tastes like a solid and hoppy west coast IPA. Good mouthfeel and not a bad aftertaste. I think the tarheel guys have done themselves proud with this beer.

Very clear copper in color. The smell, oh, the smell!: tangerine, mango, and SWEETNESS. It smells like its going to be super alcoholic - but its not. The taste is sweet, but not nearly as sweet as it smells. Its nutty and earthy, without any of the fruitiness you smell up front. Its very smooth and velvety. This is one of my very favorite NC beers! Definitely my go to when I'm out and about at random restaurants without a huge selection (its fairly ubiquitous here).
