Foothills Brewing Hop of the Month Eureka India Pale Ale

It’s back again for November Foothills Brewing Hop of the Month, Eureka India Pale Ale, 7.0% ABV with 81 IBUs. I know you say what happened to October? Well most store around me stopped carrying Hop of the Month for very short while, one month. I don’t know why that is but they did. Anyhow, Eureka is pungent and powerful aroma hop and is a bit of a throwback to the days of predominantly piney hops that are resinous and dense. Eureka India Pale Ale pours light amber color with a big four finger blooming head that slowly dissipates in to chunky lacing. The aroma is strong with hoppy notes as well as hints of citrus, herbal and floral notes. Eureka has a nice floral taste up front followed by a piney note that is closely followed by an oniony notes that has a bit of a hoppy flavor to it. The mouth feel is medium with hints of a faint fullness. Eureka finishes with a pine hoppy bite and a dank onion after taste. This one wasn’t as hoppy as I though it was going to be. I give Eureka India Pale Ale a B+. I like this to has a bit more of a hoppy flavor to this without being overly hoppy and bitter. But I really enjoyed This Foothills brewing Hop of the Month Eureka India Pale Ale. You have to like IPA’s to enjoy this one, not something you’d have for a first IPA. But Still an IPA you should try! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
