It’s here again Foothills Brewing Co. Hop of the Month Mt. Hood American Pale Ale, 5.9% ABV and 42 IBUs. Mt. Hood named after the famous Oregon Volcano, it is a German Hallertau descendant bred in the early 80’s, and is used primarily as an aroma hop. Mt. Hood pours a deep orange color with some light orange edges and a three finger pillowy bright white head that never seem to fade, but when it does it leave behind nice decent lacing. The aroma is fragrant with sweet piney notes and very faint semi fruity notes. Taste is pleasing on the tongue with subtle sweet notes and light piney flavors mixed with mild spice and herbal notes, which taste floral. The mouth feel is medium with a smooth but bitter finish that end in a nice sweet pine bitter after taste. This Mt. Hood American Pale Ale is easy to drink and rather refreshing, and it’s an A+. Foothills is amazing with the series of beer. Hop of the month continues to be excellent. I highly recommend that you try this and everyone in the Hop of the Month series. I love them all. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
