3.77/5  rDev -11.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

L: Very hazy, orangy opaque body, a thin white head, quite bubbly

S: Typical IPA smell, with more juicy orangy notes prevelent, hints of honey, reminds me of Alpha Hive

T: Taste replicates the smell and look. Very muddled beer with no distinct crisp flavors, too "juiced up" IMO. Big on the orange flavor.

F: Under carbonated for my liking, smooth though but not crisp

O: I don't know what it is but for some reason the hazier IPA's just don't really do it for me. I like something a little more crisp and with a bite. I enjoy other Foothills brews but this one just doesn't do it for me.

If you like IPAs, this is one to try. Not a ton of bite, a little fruit hints, tasty.

The more sophisticated Foothills IPA. Fairly light in color. Head subsides quickly. Notice more floral notes and a bit sweeter than Hoppyum.

Surprised at the high rating for this beer. Feel and look was great but the taste was slightly lacking for me on a rating of 95.
