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.

Clean hoppy aroma tending towards citrus and pine. Hazy orange gold with a white foam. Bitter with nice floral notes. Medium bodied with a snappy bitter finish.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy dark medium orange with a half finger white head. Head retention is not that good with just some mild lacing. Aroma is typical of what I would consider a classic East coast IPA. Very heavy on the earthy, piny hops with a healthy dose of malt thrown in for good measure. A touch of caramel and biscuit. Flavor is hop-heavy from the get go with pine and tree bark and lots of bitterness. A bit of a soapy flavor that then transitions into caramel and biscuit. Bitterness is present throughout and lingers long into the finish. Mouthfeel is a touch on the watery side finishing a bit sticky. Overall, this beer isn’t bad but there is nothing at all to make it stand out. In this day and age where everyone has an IPA, this one is just mediocre.

Not my favorite IPA but not bad. Pours a slightly hazy orange. Small, watery head. Sweet on the nose. Taste is pretty hoppy with grapefruit and some perfume notes. Malt is a bit sweet and finish is sort of resiny and mouth puckering. Nothing compared to the Hoppyum.

Clear golden color with a white head and lacing down the glass. Taste like eating a big sativa nugget with citrus notes busting out of the nose.

Pint at Doherty’s Tavern Cary. Fjle this under "I havent rated this yet? Howd that happen. Ok aroma. Sweet. Cirtus. On the grapefruit side of things. Little pine. Minor toast bread thing. Clean golden orange color, lively carbonation. Good head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body light creamy mouthfeel bitter finish. Good. Not gonna wow you. Finr it odd Foothills did this as they have hoppyum and then Jade. But solid enough.

Bottle. Smells strong and sweet. Pours thick, dark yellow with a little sediment. Taste is complex, starts smooth but quickly becomes and finishes bitter and strong. I am not a fan of the IPA style, but this is good to taste, not something I would buy again though.
