Creamy head of foam on the top. Nice amber color; lovely bouquet. Very smooth with very little bite. A great beer to buy in a six pack. I can see this as a definite go-to beer. I will look for this again - very enjoyable. Pairs well with sharp cheddar cheese and Triscuits.

20oz becher glass.
Pours clear golden, quickly dissipating off-white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is light fruit, malt-rich. Tastes of light tropical, fruit and smooth malt base. MF is low on carbonation, low on bitterness.. high on balance. A very good experience!

Another great hoppy IPA from my local Brewery, Foothills. The Taste is refreshing and crisp with a great Hoppy taste, but never too bitter. Pleasant aroma, very drinkable and just a tad "below" (for lack of a better word) Foothills' incredible Jade IPA.

Discovered this beer while visiting UNC, where my daughter goes to school. I pick up a case every time I visit. My house favorite.
