On draft at eagle rock brewery.

Pours a moderate gold with nice large head, good retention with some lacing, crystal clear.

Aroma is moderatly hoppy with a slight malt background, very subtle and a little underwhelming.

Flavor is ok but a little bit of a mess, not to bitter, with malt in the mix, not very well defined flavors and in need of refinement.

I hope to be able to revist this beer in the future after the brewery has been around for a while, but for the moment probably wont be going back for a second.

This IPA by Cismontane is unnamed at the moment. On-tap at the source itself, on to the beer:

Rusty copper colored thanks to the dregs of the keg. The head on tap had good retention, and it left a good amount of lacing on the glass. Not an explosive IPA in flavor like certain ones from San Diego, though certainly enjoyable. There are tasting notes of pine and grapefruit from the hops, and a little touch of malt. Mouthfeel is on the spot. Properly carbonated (unlike its pale ale sibling), good medium body feel.

The hops in here aren't huge like in other IPA's, so age will be a bigger problem with this IPA. But consumed at the source, age shouldn't be a problem. A solid brew by this new brewery.
