Game Day Beer Review: Carolina Beer Company Cottonwood Endo American IPA


Style: American IPA

Brewery: Foothills Brewing, Winstom Salem, NC

ABV : 6.0%

Reviewer: James

Look 3.0   Smell 3.0   Taste 2.5   Feel 2.5   Overall 3.0

Recommended at the local craft beer store and from a very good brewery.  Overall, not impressed, unfortunately.  Not substantive enough for an IPA - Cottonwood Endo tastes more like a moderately hoppy pilsner.  

It looks like one,  too: gold not orange, light head, decent lacing,  though.  Some nice bitterness comes through at the end,  although not enough going on prior to that.  

It's decent - not great, and just doesn't feel like an IPA.  Someone compared it to PBR on steroids, which was apt.
