3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16.9 bottle from the brewery. Stronger malt presence than most CA IPAs but hops still punch through enough. I was told that this was the freshest hoppy beer they had in bottles, but I have a feeling itís not all that fresh. Bottle date looks almost 2 months old if Iím reading it correct. Still enjoyed but hope for fresher IPAs from a brewery on site -- too bad we didnít have time for a pint or need for a growler.

Golden orange pour, plenty of white head (overflowed when I opened it.) Aroma of tangerine, tropical hops. Flavor is very balanced citrus, light stone fruit, and tropical hops.

poured from a bomber, itís a nice clear orange brew with a pleasant aroma.
the flavor is dominated by a bitter grapefruit & pinecone hops flavor. more bitter than I prefer, but a nice contrast to the sweeter IIPAís I regularly drink

15 feb 2014, tap. Yellow, clear, occasional bubbles. Nose is pine hops, some rye malt, and hints of bubble gym or cotton candy. Med body and moderately fizzy. Lots if pine hops and bitterness with some rye malt and noticeable alcohol. Ok.

Appearance: Translucent, Gold-Copper; Huge, Foamy Head; Vigorous Carbonation; Great Lace
Smell: Lemon Rind; Sweet Orange; Tangerine; Floral Hops
Taste: Tangerine; Lime; Lemon Rind; Bisquit Malts; Rye Spice
Mouth-feel: BIG carbonation, almost Champagne; Medium Body; Dry Finish
Overall: Good Rye IPA;
Comments: I would like more hop bitterness and rye spice to match the heavy fruitiness. Seems stylistically confusedÖ is it an IPA or a Rye-IPA?

Bottle. Poured hazy copper color with an average to large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy & hop aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.

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.
