Foothills Seeing Double IPA
What the brewers say
"A dense blend of base malts sets a solid foundation for massive additions of Cascade hops and a Chinook dry-hopping. The result is an intense flavor profile that’s citrusy with heavy notes of pine. And immensely delicious."
What our panel thought
Flavor: "Malt sweetness with a syrup like consistency upfront with a medium hop fruitiness. Melon sweetness with a touch of light banana and lemon. Very light on the bitterness only exposing itself at the very end. A bit of cardboard oxidization towards the middle of the sip makes the hops muddled."
Overall: "A pleasant and well made strong beer, though lacking in hop character and bitterness to properly call this a double IPA."
