3.75/5  rDev -3.1%

22oz bottle as an extra in a trade with BryanC on thebeerspot. Thanks! Apparently this bottle is less than a week old, and the "D" month marked on the label confirms it.

A very pretty IPA, this. Golden, fiery orange body shows a sparkling, almost-filtered clarity in my Jester King snifter. Not much head or carbonation, but the ring of spittle-colored foam retains well. The aroma throws a healthy dose of "C" hops at the nose--floral, citrusy, piney, and ultimately fragrant. Hop notes get balanced nicely by caramel and light toffee notes from the malt.

The flavor is big on bitterness, as resin and pine sap leave a lingering bite on the sides and back of the palate. Flavor hops are there, but ultimately overshadowed a bit. Still, some tasty notes of tropical fruit and fresh, green hop cones. The grain bill and alcohol presence are clean and unoffensive, but could stand to provide a bit more balance to the bitter onslaught. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and light in carbonation. A bit sticky and chewy, but it's a good thing. Overall, a more-than-serviceable IPA from what appears to be an up-and-coming brewery out of VA. Cheers!

Had this as a side-by-side tasting with aleworks drake tail, and devils backbone 8 point to determine what the best IPA available in virginia is. Hands down COTU has stepped up and taken the crown imo. More malt backbone than the db, but not as much as the aleworks, well blended with plenty of hoppy bitterness. A must try for those looking for a good beer in RVA outside of Hardywood. Cheers
