Brewed by:
Foothills Brewing Company - Downtown Brewpub
North Carolina, United States

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.

Pours nicely, but this is simply just raw hops to me. Just overpoweeing hops with much skunky bite. the mouth feel is not bad but just not the right combination of hops buscuit and malt. Bought local on a vacation and was let down. Enjoyed sweetwatee al local beer much more.

A - Golden body, mostly clear, with a white head that has good retention and lacing.

M - Medium body and carbonation, smooth consistency with moderate bitterness.

S/T - Similar, with grapefruit flesh, floral, pine resin, sweet caramel malt, yet stays bitter through the finish.
