Commercial Description

Endo India Pale Ale is said to be "Brewed with Altitude". The style is similar to IPAs from the Pacific Northwest. We dry-hop Endo with Cascade hops to enhance the aroma and bitterness.

    [Best served in a Shaker glass]

    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...

    Love this Beer. Foothills brought back the original Cottonwood recipe from when this was brewed in Boone. Not too hoppy. Very smooth!

    Received as a part of my Craft Beer Club shipment. Pours a deeper amber than expected for an IPA, quite lovely. Citrusy hop aroma up front but you know that some toasty malts are also in store. Nice medium bodied brew with a more doughy character once you start to drink. Not very powerfully hopped but nicely balanced with a late bitter bite.

    Fruity aroma. Metallic finish. possibly a bad batch. Not impressed and almost think it needs to be served ice cold. Subtle hops and almost a sense of malts but the metallic nature may have confused my taste buds. I hope others enjoyed more and will hope to try again to prove myself wrong. Pours a light amber.
