COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
True to its North Carolina roots, this American IPA delivers on the floral, hoppy notes that made Cottonwood a Boone, NC favorite. 100% malted barley and copious amounts Cascade, Magnum, and Chinook hops.

Poured from the bottle. Color is a golden yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is a bit of dank hops and malt. Flavor is minor sweetness with more dank hops. Hops linger a bit, but not in a good way.
