3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A yeasty IPA with orange juice flavor upfront
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh a few days after purchase
The look: Cloudy orange ody topped by a medium off-white head
In long: Nose is like a fresh orange muffin. Taste is very yeasty, orange juice, moist, orange peels, blue cheese, some pine-tree. Malt backbone remains in the back and does not contribute much to the flavor spectrum. After-taste of resinous bitter hops and old slightly past due-date orange juice. To me it was just ok, nothing special. It is an Indie beer. If you don’t like it, it is because you don’t get it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a head that doesn’t stick around too long. Actually one of the better east coast IPAs I have had in awhile in terms of hop bite.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very nice IPA from Cisco. Very fruity-floral aromas and flavor to this cloudy light amber-orange brew. Nice flavors from the yeast also. Flavorful finish. Not a style I love much, but this one is very good.

Bottle. Poured a moderately light orange color, medium white head. Aroma is hoppy, laced heavily with malts. Flavor is fruity hops, hops - might not be as bitter as some IPAs, but it’s a good, solid example of the style.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Perfect Pour. Pours dark orangish-copper with good size white head. Aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, hops, and some malt. Flavors of some grapefruit, bitter hops, touch of pine, and some malt. Finishes really bitter but hops flavors dont really blend well. Appreciate the effort. Nice amount of hops used for sure.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange, good head on draft. Bitter hoppy tastes, but not like an American IPA does with Cascade. Finish is bitter and clean.

Bomber at a tasting
Appearance : Clear ywllow, not much head.
Aroma : Peachy and fruity. A bit piny. Reminds me a bit of Kool-Aid.
Taste : Peachy fruity, finish quite resinous. Light yeast. Finish is a bit dusty.
Overall : Nice fruity profile but rather avereage overall. Reminds me a bit of Kool-Aid which is a bit weird...

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz Bottle purchased at Wakefield Liquors - Wakefield, RI. Aroma is juicy, orange-like and dank, with what must have some Cascade. If they used Summit, they managed to avoid the onion-like, garlicky characters, which is a good thing. There’s a fair amount of caramel malt in the base, but somehow I appreciate the deeper sweetness this beer lends. Overall, it seems to have more complexity with the sweetness and the extra bitterness. This is a more intense east coast style IPA. Reasonable, but nothing extraordinary.

Poured an orange amber hue with a white head that had good retention and lace. Aroma had a nice caramel note along with pine hops and citrus notes. Flavor had good malt notes the caramel notes mellowed out the hop bite. Hops were present but not to the extreme level. Finish was crisp and the palate was moderate.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hoppy aroma, citrus and pine with a bit of cheesiness. Flavor is medium malty with a big piney hop finish and lingering bitterness. Not bad.
