Foothills Brewing IPA of the Month April (Finley)

It’s yet another month and that means it time for another Foothills Brewery IPA of the Month. This is April (Finley), 6.6% ABV and 74 IBUs. Foothills Brewery uses five different hops. This is more of a warm-weather IPA according to Foothills. April pours a golden color with a three and a half finger white head that stick around for a while before fading in to nice whiffs of lacing in the glass. I found decent amounts of light coming through the glass with nice carbonation bubbles. The aroma is of tropical fruits like pineapple, mango, melon, and some papaya. There also is an aroma of slight orange and some grapefruit with a grassy pine note. The taste is much like it own aroma, there is nice sweet tropical pineapple, mango, melon and some papaya with grapefruit and oranges. I also found some grassy piney hop note as well that gave it the slight bit of bitterness in the middle of the mouth. This IPA of the Month isn’t overly hoppy nor is it too bitter. This is like a good tropical fruit salad. The mouth feel is light with a nice tropical and slight bitter finish. The after taste is of tropical fruits and juices a very pleasant after taste. Once again Foothills brewing has brewed another great IPA of the Month. April (Finley) is an A+. It’s one great tropical IPA and certainly goes great with warm-weather. I would definitely have this IPA of the Month again. I like how it doesn’t over power your taste buds with hop flavors or bitterness and there is more of a tropical fruit flavor that makes this beer more drinkable throughout the pint. I also can say enough good thinks about Foothills Brewing IPA of the Month series it is one great IPA series. If you have not tried this Foothills IPA of the Month then go and do so. It’s great!! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
