Poured from 12oz bottle into HF tulip. Pours a hazey orange with slight quick head and some slight lacing. Very strong bitter rye malt aromas with a big hop presence and very mild citrus. Its meh...
Flavor is on the malty side. Really taste like a rye IPA. Im getting some citrus and crisp fresh water type flavor. Its a bit bitter; not the good ipa kind, but a little harsh. Its a better than average brew, but not an amazing ipa.

A: Pours a light yellow orange. Really clear after hop haze/chill haze wears off. Not a ton of head, it's bright white what is there. Doesn't leave much lacing.

S: Smells really soapy. Almost like a bad homebrew I made once (sadly). Moderately fruity hops. Nothing crazy. Biscuit malts.

T: On the tip of the tongue, you get a good amount of pine not citrus. Then some fruitless comes in along with malts. Mild breadiness. Close is dry with a mild bitterness.

M: Light leading medium.

This was a gift to me from my friend, San Knocken. Today seems to be a good day for me to drink some IPAs, whether from bottle or CAN.

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

I was relatively gentle with my pour, but the intense carbonation still produced a finger of bone-white head with decent retention. Color was a light golden-yellow with NE-quality clarity and loads of CO2 bubbles. Nose had kind of a grassy quality, perhaps from the intermingling of the hops. Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was both earthy and grassy, very reminiscent of a wet (fresh)-hopped beer, although that process may not have been used in this case. Finish was semi-dry, very tasty, with a lingering earthiness that lent a tea-like mellowness to the beer.

Poured golden orange with a finger of bright white head. Floral aroma with some mild pine.

Moderate carbonation and a full mouthfeel. Floral notes up front followed by tangerine, orange, honey, and gentle pine bitterness on the tail end.

Nice hop/malt balance here...good IPA.

This one seems a bit...unusual. The first thing I thought when I tastes it was that it might be a Belgian IPA? But, no. It's isn't. It's just very soapy with a fruity tone to it. Kind of an odd tone to it, though still pleasurable enough to drink. A bit too bright and twisted in that area for an IPa, but it's drinkable.

Picked up a bottle while out at the Outer Banks, NC. The bitterness isn't huge, but there's a nice array of citrus juice hop oils with a mild herbal edge and lingering bitter rind. It would have trouble standing up to the heavy hitters of the style, but you consider this a tasty summer-weight IPA and great BBQ companion. Certainly a beer I'd pick up for the beach again.

Poured into a snifter on 8/7/12

Light, slightly faded, tangerine color. Foam is on the lesser side - I managed to get only 1/3rd inch of bubbles that didn't care to last long.

The aroma is simple and fairly clean with notes of floral hops, tangerine, lemon, citrus candy sweetness, caramel and bread. It isn't what I usually care for, though not entirely bad for an "East Coast" IPA.

The hops fare better taste-wise, but not exactly by leaps and bounds. Sharp citrus a la grapefruit, lemon and orange peel set out before and candy/floral sweetness grips the mid-section. Caramel and bread are moderate on the back half. Raw bitterness moves in on the finish and lingers.

The feel is bordering on brash; the body is taught and snagged by high carbonation.

Overall impression - Seems like this better than I remember in the pre-Foothills days. While I'd call it a pretty average IPA, it ain't a bad sippin' beer for the summer time.
