Look, Cismontane--nor any other brewer--is going to reinvent the ipa, but Cismontane offers a very nice example. That aroma! That sweet pine aroma is quite amazing, and something I have never encountered before. You know what, it actually smells of Witch Hazel a bit! I swear. Anyway, this is well-balanced brew that is quite serviceable.

Bottle from Healthy Spirits, SF. Clear amber. Citrus hop aroma. Sweet citrusy taste with decent malt and a light bitter finish. Smooth body. A perfectly good IPA, but nothing extraordinary.

Thank you Jessica at Craft Brewed Nashville. Color is a hazy yellow pages LD with a very generous foam. Smells light but very fresh. Light citrus with plenty of mellow hops. Tastes much the same. Very easy to consume. I could get in trouble with this. Not super complex or amazing but crazy drinkable.

16-oz. Thanks K! Pours a hazy medium amber with golden bronze edges. Huge fluffy white head. Lots of lace. Caramel, grass, peppery rye, and a bit of pine on the nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel and grass on the mid palate with a mild finish.

On tap. Nice glowing golden orange pour with a white head. Aroma is mild in the hops department with some clean pine bitterness and a noticeable sweet malt backbone. Taste has a clean pine bitterness, some rye, and a very sweet (strong ale esque) malt finish. Somewhat coating mouthfeel. I much prefer my IPAs with more hops and a cleaner profile but this was okay everything considered.

I thought this was a pretty good IPA but they need to change the Style because it is really a RYE IPA. Nice citrus,piney. More body then the Westcoast IPA still very delicious. I would seek out again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a medium orange with a two finger off white head with some nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, rye, sweet malts, and some dank hops. Taste is about the same with a weird artificial aftertaste mixed in. Has a medium body with a rocky, grainy, ever so slightly creamy mouthfeel and a slightly boozy, medium short finish. Overall, a pretty average, mudune IPA that could use some work.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Subtle aromas... hints of orange, tangerine and malt. Nice, fuller bodied malt/rye mouthfeel, though carbonation could definitely use some work. Elegant, subtle citrus flavors are nice, though overall, kinda weak for the West Coast market. If you prefer a low tone, subtle English IPA, you might enjoy this beer. If you looking for a West Coast hop bomb, look elsewhere. Seriously. Overall, balanced, though to subtle for me. I prefer big, dank, grapefruit, bitter hop bombs.

Tastes of a good wave of hops upfront with a decent malt backbone. Hops lead off with a little bit of citrus and some floral notes. Moderately bitter. Malts come in faintly on the backend with a little caramel sweetness.
