Had on-tap at Westville Pub Asheville. Served in a pint glass.

A- Pours a light amber color with a 1/4 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of sheer surface foam.

S- Mildly citrusy hop aroma and a faint whiff of booze.

T- Good hop flavor with some moderate bitterness. It doesn't point toward any one particular direction. Just some mild citrus and on into the bitterness which actually becomes more and more intense with each sip. Touch of bready malt brings a slight balance. Alcohol is decently concealed.

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

O- Nothing spectacular but it's better than the BA score gives it credit for. Just needs a bit more balance.

What I am about to say isn't a bash on this well balanced east coast (u.s) ipa. Nice amber finish in glass (draft). Hops taste great but a bit spicy so if you aren't used to eastcoast ipas you may not like this ipa. Honestly to me not much of a potent smell from the draft. All in all I would definitely order this beer again and foothills brewing should not be overlooked.
