Got this as a gift... and i think its pretty solid ipa... love the dark rich amber body. Really comes out with lovely malt flavors. Not west coast by any means. Like a hoppy amber ale, citrus and caramel. Very balanced. Nice head retention and good carbonation. Would drink this like crazy if i was a local. Nice overall beer

On tap at Standings NYC and served in a Stoudt's pint glass.
It's hard to judge the exact color of Mystic Bridge IPA due to the dim lighting in the bar, but it appears to be a fairly clear burnt orange. About a finger of bone colored foam crowns the beer and holds on for a little bit before cleanly falling away. The nose is nice, lots of grapefruit and tangerine peel, balanced by just a faint aroma of caramel. The malt profile manages to become more complex, while staying firmly in the background on my palate. It's more bready here, but a touch of caramel is still appreciable. The bitterness that comes through next is sharp, almost as intense as I'd find in man imperial versions of the style. That makes it all the more disappointing when the hoppy finish is a little bit mild. I do appreciate tangerine joining the standard grapefruit note, but it isn't as lively as it should be. The body is well on the dry side of things, but the carbonation is a bit dull. Seeing Mystic Bridge IPA on tap was the first I had heard of Cottrell Brewing , consider it a solid first impression.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a hazy consistency. Some light sediment. There was an inch of foamy, long-lasting head. Excellent lacing.
S: A good aroma of hops, citrus, and a bit of malt.
T: Tasted of hops, first and foremost, along with a hint of citrus, a light malty quality, and an earthiness in the finish. Much hoppier - and less sweet - than a lot of American IPAs, but very balanced and tasty.
M: A well-carbonated beer with a dry finish. Medium-bodied.
O: This is one of those solid, straightforward beers. Drinkable and well done.
