Carolina "Cottonwood Endo IPA"
Carolina Beer Company - Mooresville, North Carolina, USA
IPA (ABV 5.9%)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Aroma: 5/10
Appearance: 2/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a clear medium amber with a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that diminished down to a large collar and a few puddles of residue which produced some excellent sheets of lace.

The aroma was very light of a floral hop, straw malts and a moldy yeast with a nice subtle note of caramel.

The taste was mildly bitter sweet with a note of caramel early on and then became harshly bitter and with a good hoppy feel at the end. The flavor hung on for quite a while, with a good strong hoppy taste that faded away slowly.

Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a medium carbonation.

Overall a decent IPA with a nice strong bitter finish...
