Foothills Brewing IPA of the Month May (Bentley)

It’s here again, Foothills Brewing IPA of the Month. This is May (Bentley), 5.6% ABV and 65 IBUs (international Bittering Units). Foothills are using Citra and Sorachi Ace hops with grapefruit and clementine orange essence in this May IPA. Bentley pours a hazy looking light yellow/orange color with a three and a half finger bright white fluffy head that is slow to fade into nice whips of fine lacing. There is some small amount of light coming through the glass and I found nice amounts of carbonation bubbles. The aroma smells like fresh grapefruit with a little bit of orange and faint tiny hints of lemon. This May IPA has a nice taste of hoppy lemonade that has nice grapefruit put into it without a huge bitterness. There also is a nice but faint taste of a light orange to it. It’s neither overly hoppy nor bitter but it also isn’t the opposite of that either. The mouth feel is light and refreshing with a little light hoppy bitter tingle on your tongue. May finishes nice a citrusy with a faint bitter hop aftertaste with slight grapefruit. This Foothills IPA of the Month May (Bentley) is good, but not as good as last month (April). This one was more about one or two fruit flavors and last April had more fruit flavors to it. So I give IPA of the Month May (Bentley) an A. It was a good IPA. I recommend trying Foothills IPA of the Month May (Bentley) or any/all in this series.  I have never had a bad one in this series! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
