Foothills Brewing IPA of the Month November (NovAmber)

It’s time once again for Foothills IPA of the Month. Here we have November (NovAmber), 6.9% ABV with an IBU of 64. Foothills say that this IPA is bursting with orange flavor, and they use generous amounts of Chinook, Citra and Simcoe hops, they’ve also added a little blood orange essence. November pours a golden orange color with a big four finger fluffy   semi off white head. I found very little light coming through the glass with nice amounts of carbonation bubbles racing to the head. The aroma is bursting with oranges and orange peels. There is a little faint pine like earthiness to the nose also. The taste is much like the aroma with oranges and orange peels with earthy hops around it and touches of piney notes. The orange/orange peels cover most of the bitterness, but as the orange flavor fades the bitterness comes out but just enough to let you know this is an IPA. November has a nice bitter orange finishes with faint hints of piney and earthiness that leads you into a nice sweet like bitter orange after taste that reminds me of fresh oranges. Foothills IPA of the Month November is a solid fruity IPA the way I like them, so I would give this an A-. I really enjoyed the orange flavors and it went well the bitter hops. The orange also covers up the bitterness a bit which is also good. This is a well-brewed IPA most enjoyable to drink. I recommend that you try Foothills Brewing IPA of the Month November. So go out and try this Foothills Brewing IPA of the Month November. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
