3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2014 Had on tap at the Grog. $7 for the full pint. Pours a golden orange, sustaining a minimal, ringed whitish head 1 finger in length which rested atop. Tastes and smells of fried cabbage, American hops, stale bread, biscuit malt, pine needles, candied sugar, sawdust, and yeast. Clean, crisp, and respectably refined. Arguably the best beer Rising Tide has thus released.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours copper with a slight haze. One finger white head that recedes leaving decent lace. Strong, clean hop aroma. Pine and juniper. Like walking through a pine forest on a cold winter day. Flavor starts with a cookie dough sweetness then wave after wave of citrus hop goodness storm your taste buds. Bitter and sweet simultaneously. Moderate in body with a resinous texture. Bitter finish. Excellent, and reasonably priced, I thought. $7.00 for a bomber.

On tap at Battleship. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a thick head. Aroma is of grapefruits, malt, and lactic hop scent. Different but interesting. Flavor is of malts, a nice hop punch, and grapefruit. Long lingering bitter aftertaste, the smell lingers long into the tasting. Full bodied but with an elevated carbonation level. Good brew. Nice and smooth for something close to 9%.

Tap Cornerstone Barre VT - Orange copper in color. Dank pine sap aroma with notes of gumminess. Smooth coating mouthfeel. Great big hop bitterness without the overpowering astringency in some diPAs. Finishes with chewy wet fresh hop dankness.

bomber, this one is a piney resin dank bomb. Not too many of these anymore, I really like em. Good malt body so that its not too "west coasty"

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Taster at Bert’s Better Beers. Pours a orange amber color, small head that is gone before you know it. Smell is floral hops, orange, simple syrup, and caramel malts. Taste follow, nice floral hoppiness, solid malt backbone, sweetness, and a surprisingly bitter bite. Going down it is a bit too sticky sweet for me, but a solid effort for Rising Tide.

Pours hazy copper into a tulip. White head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Resin and mango aromas. Sweet molasses and oak front to back turning slightly sour in the lasting malt finish.

Hazy yellow-orange with medium white head. Aroma of citrus hops, spice, malt. Medium full body. Alcohol is not prominent at all. Flavor is very hoppy but not overly bitter with good balance from malt sweetness. Citrus and floral. Very good.
