Foothills IPA of the Month October (Hops)

Foothills IPA of the Month is back once again with October (Hops), 6.6% ABV. This mouths IPA is brewed with Citra, Sorachi Ace, and Czech Saaz hops. I have found out from Foothills Brewing that the IPA of the Month will not bee continuing next year, but they will have a new monthly series entitled Hop of The Month, in which each month they will be showcasing one particular hop. October pours a deep yellow with bits of light orange color with a four finger off white head that slowly dissipates into somewhat thick lacing. The aroma is of juicy citrus grapefruit and a bit of melon and pineapple with hits of earthy tones. The taste has nice juicy grapefruit with a slight mix of melon and faint pineapple. There are nice hoppy, bitter, earthy and piney notes that surround the fruity flavors. The mouth feel is medium with a hoppy slightly bitter finish of juicy grapefruit and an earthy note. October has a bitter fruity aftertaste that lingers for a few seconds before the next sip. Yet again Foothills Brewing has brewed another wonderful IPA of the Month. So October (Hops) gets A+. After two years of this series I will say that these IPAs are quite drinkable and not slamming you with huge amounts of bitter hops. Foothills Brewing really shows you the range of wonderful flavors that and IPA can have, and how not all IPAs have the same of similar flavor. I highly recommend try October and all of this year and last years IPAs. You will come to liking IPA more when you do! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
