Appearance: clear pale gold, creamy white head, heavy drippy lace
Aroma: huge citrus aroma on top of a crystalized candy malt base
Flavor: sweet citrus flavor, lots of crystal sweetness, robus bitterness keeps the sweetness in check while allowing the flovor hops to streal the show
Overall: close to the original but bigger on the citrus aroma and flavor hops, a nice improvement

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bottle, thanks to Jay. Poured in a pint. Malt-forward orange taste, not as hoppy as I’d like. Earthy, light lemon. Pronounced, moderate sharper carbonation. Mildly hazy yellow / orange color. Some sparse off-white head, leaves a bit of lace. Little floral. Medium bitter taste. Not the greatest IPA, but a nice one to enjoy with lunch.

12 oz bottle purchased at brewery - clear golden color. There was actually quite a bit of yeast floating in the bottles. Nice citrus and floral hops aroma and flavor. Grapefruit. This beer goes down easy.

12oz poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear golden. Aromas of citrus hops. Bitterness apparent throughout. Not as balanced as I like in an IPA. Overall not bad. Seems more bitter than the 66 IBU listed

Pours a clear yellow with a thinnish head. Sweet aroma of light hops. Oh, beer of the month. Flavor is different, not as bitter, not a favorite but not bad.

Clear gold, minimal head. Very hoppy aroma w/ grapefruit and other fruit. Light and oily texture, dry, bitter. Grapefruit and pine, floral. Enjoyable but not very complex.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market in Elizabeth City, NC. Yellowish-orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of wet grass and pine, mostly, with faint notes of tangerine peel. Bitter grapefruit and pine flavor with light biscuity malts on the back end. Easy drinking yet a strong hop profile. Better than I remember Cottonwood’s version of Endo tasting like. A nice surprise.
