Foothills Brewing IPA of the Month August (Spot)

Another month is here and so is another Foothills IPA of the Month. Here is Foothills Brewing IPA of the Month August  (Spot), 5.8% ABV with 54 IBUs. August is melodically dry-hopped with Simcoe and Soirachi Ace hops. August (Spot) pours a deep hazy orange color with a bit of cloudiness to it and a four and half fluffy off white pillowy head that retains it’s fluffiness and slowly fades into somewhat thick whiffs of lacing around the glass. No light was found coming through, and there was a little amount of carbonation bubbles there. This is all due to the hazy and somewhat murkiness of the beer. August aroma is big with orange, light orange peel and some lemon with a little bitterness around these other aromas. The taste is a big zesty and bitter orange with nice lemony flavors along side them. There is a nice low bitterness with a tiny earthy flavor that comes in and goes out just as quick. The flavor on this months IPA are smoother and easier to drink. The mouth feel is medium and has a nice citrus orange with some lemon in the finish that goes down smoothly. The after taste is slightly bitter and orangey with a faint hip note there. This is yet again a great IPA. I give Foothills IPA of the Month August (Spot) an A+. As always Foothills IPA of the Month series is so great. I loved how easy this IPA was to drink and that it wasn’t so hoppy and/or bitter. It was a good amount of nice fruit with a nice hop bitterness to back for on tasty IPA. This August is probably the best yet. I think that it’s the best tasting. This is one you need to buy two of. I highly recommend pick this one up. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
