Foothills Brewing Company Craft Happiness Distance IPA

I have not had a Foothills Brewing Company Craft Happiness IPA in a long while. But recently I came across Foothills Brewing Company Craft Happiness Distance IPA, 6.1% ABV with an IBU (International Bittering Unit) of 62 and this IPA from Winston-Salem North Carolina is double-dry hopped with Simcoe, Mosaic, and Idaho 7 hops. This beer, which is part of a monthly series and the proceeds go to Benefit cyclists and runners. Distance IPA pours deep yellow color with a foamy three finger head that leaves behind beautiful thick fluffy lacing. The aroma is nice with a decent amount of citrus fruits with a bitter note hurt the nose that has a very faint pine quality to it that takes you into a citrus fruit flavor of nice orange and grapefruit with a little lemon note sneaking its way into your taste buds. There is a nice bitterness that has the faintest/lightest sweetness that finishes smooth with a nice citrus hop kick and an aftertaste of citrus hoppiness with a medium mouthfeel. Foothills Brewing Company Craft Happiness Distance IPA reminded me that Foothills brews really great awesome IPAs and Distance IPA is no different, well deserving of an A+, with nothing wrong at all with it, and please do yourself a favor and go try this awesome IPA! Please enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
