3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a hazy red with a small white head. Aroma is a oily hop with sweet malts. Flavor is more on the malty side. Thatís not a bad thing as the malts are very earth and herbal. The malts overpower any hop presence but Iím guess a fresher sample would show them off more. This says American style IPA but this is way more an English style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs). Looks solid; malty though. A mostly transparent deep orange with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of mostly bitter hops with a touch of fruit and a big pale malt backbone. Average (at best) on the palate with what seems like a bit of hot booziness. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. An underwhelming example of the style.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Clear orange red color. Little ring of khaki head, no lace. Medium body. Lighter carbonation. More dry texture. Kind of a metallic malt taste to it, more bittering hop than aroma. Not a good IPA. Very disappointing. Not drinkable. Off-putting aroma, hard to do more than sip this. Drain pour. Did Cisco really send a bunch of old product to Ohio for their launch, or is this always this weak? Didnít see a bottle date, so I canít be sure
