COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
True to itís roots, this American IPA delivers on the floral, hoppy notes that made Cottonwood a Boone favorite. 100% malted barley and copious amounts of Cascade, Magnum, and Chinook hops do the trick, artfully brewed by Foothills

Elwood (3168) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from a local store in Hatteras.
Aroma: The nose is lighter than I was expecting with notes of pine and a touch of caramel.
Appearance: It pours a slightly hazy amber color with a decent pillowy, off-white head. The head leaves decent lacing.
Taste: The flavor is straightforward with notes of pine resin and caramel. Rather two dimensional if you will. The bitter aftertaste really lingers and becomes a little unpleasant.
Palate: Medium bodied with average carbonation leading to a lengthy dry and bitter finish.
Overall: Pretty flat and unimpressive, especially in a crowded category. You arenít missing anything if you skip this brew.

medium brown with large white head, citrus hops. Firm bitterness before mild to moderate hop flavor before a lot of low crystal hops. Below average version

Almost no aroma. Small head And well carbonated. Taste is hoppy and floral with dry bitter finish. Not too much crazy going on to get excited about but a solid beer.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Pours a beige, lacing head with a golden-amber body. Aromas of caramelized malt and old hops. Flavor is much the same. Sweet, slightly sticky and bitter finish.

mixmasterob (883) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Picked up a six pack while I was in Knoxville. Aroma was of some earthy hops along with a subtle fruitiness and some wood. Flavors were similar, some decent hop flavors, just a bit too laid back and a bit rough around the edges. Carbonation was a bit too much. This stuff finished dry as a bone with a good bitter finish. A very forgettable IPA.

On tap at the Charlotte, NC airport. Iíll start b y saying that Iíve had plenty of regular APAs that were hoppier than this beer. I got a 22 oz pour and immediately wished Iíd gotten something smaller. Disappointing.

Served from bottle into Stone nonic. Pours a deep brown with apparent sediment throughout with a minimal off-white head. There was no apparent lacing. The aroma was comprised of malt and hops. The flavor was light on the hops with a sour malt presence with a crisp finish. It was medium on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a nice brew. It could have used more flavor and aroma notes to make it much better. However, it was not a bad brew and is worth trying if you get the chance.

12oz. Bottle from trade with Suttree: Aroma of diacetyl, caramel malt, and light hops. Poured amber in color with a small, tan head that lasted throughout. Clear. Lightly sparkling. A few small particles. Ok lacing. Flavor is medium bitter and lightly sweet. Tastes of diacetyl, hops, malt, slight caramel, and slight citrus. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Diacetyl, light hops, and slight caramel malt finish is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Too much butter!
