look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12oz bottle. Pours a nice darker golden color. One inch lasting foamy head.

Not much smell to speak of but that also means no bad smells are there. Some piney hop notes and a hit of caramel malt. This certainly has more flavor than the nose would indicate.

The brew has a sweetness while on your tongue but the finish is dry and bitter.

I've never tried Cottrell before. But one day while heading home from Foxwoods casino I stopped in a local package store looking for some local CT brew. I'm glad I did.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: A coppery pour is dark with an abundance of macro-particle matter suspension. Pale khaki head is whispy, moderately holding while providing a broken, snake band like lacing.

S: Caramel grains, and grapefruit with a sweet herbal supplement. Hints of chives, floral scents, perfumy in delivery with an orange-caramel sweetness.

T: Flavor of toasted warmth, light honey, pine and grapefruit. Floral hops with some herbal undertones of chives and a herbaceous-caramel. Perfumy orchard like finish that was woodsy, grassy, with some parsely notes coming a bit after the swallow.

M: malty and creamy of medium base with a relaxed sense of carbonation.

O: Overall a unique blend of toasted floral and herbal hop warmth and not what i was expecting. Gentle ipa drinking, best before of november, consumed in jan may have some hand in the hops seeming a bit relaxed. I would try my hand at a single here first for those expecting a traditional style west coast ipa who may be dissappointed, for others seeking an alternative hop flavored ipa a bit softer, herbal and floral in content may find this a welcome different treat.

Poured chilled in ale glass

A: dark amber color; very little head; fantastic lacing
S: hoppy, sweet, lingers nicely
T: hops, straw flavor; slightly sweet, not bitter (despite being very hoppy); medium roast malt very prominent; inviting and tasty--very well balanced

Really good IPA, esp. as a standard, go-to type
