Beautiful golden color with some hop haze, all underneath a dense eggshell colored head. Gorgeous beer. Nose features a heaping helping of dan, piney hop notes, which translate directly to the taste. World-class stuff here.

The mouthfeel is full and more than a bit oily. I’m really glad I had the chance to try this magnificent beer.

Poured a deep hazy yellow with a two finger frothy head that quickly dissipated to a thick film. Aroma is tropical citrus and pineapple. Initial light malt with a burst of tropical citrus and balanced piney hops on the finish. The feel is a bit thick but still in the moderate range with medium carbonation. While this is very refreshing, it is not crisp. This is a great balanced IPA that is very drinkable. The brew hides the higher ABV well.

Extremely solid, well-made IPA from Foothills! Hoppy, piney, everything you'd want in an IPA!

Oh f××k yes!
Pours a dark yellow color with a nice head.
Overtone of piney hop aroma that follows through to the taste.
A slightly bitter taste through the aftertaste is not off-putting, most likely due to the high 7.4% abv.
This is simply the best IPA I have ever drank. Ranks a 9.5 out of 10 on the would you like to sit down with a 12 pack of this brew scale.

Order at a taco joint in Greensboro,NC, and it had a copper color with a nice head to it. The beer drank smoothly with a nice bitter, citrus taste.

I tried this at Ponce City Market in Atlanta, GA. It poured a clear copper with white head that left some lace. The scent had bitter citrus notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with grapefruit presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a good beer.
