COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after the coulter big cone pine tree is a well balanced I.P.A. It brings the style of I.P.A. back to its roots. Brewed with a hint of rye for head retention and a deeper malt character, this brew has the best of all worlds, great hop aroma, a strong body and deceiving strength.

rosenbergh (7239) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2014
500 ml bottle. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Cloudy amber golden colour with a huge frothy off-white head. Airy and gluey aroma with piney hops, mild bitterness and some sweetish maltiness. Quite dry though. The flavour is piney hops and moderate bitterness. Very slick. The flavour really comes and goes. Nothing to grab to. Easy for a 7.2% IPA. Not my favourite.

olio (6401) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2014
50 cl bottle.
Pours clear amber color with a large head, leaves a nice lacing on the sides. Mandarin and orange peel first thing on the nose, floral hops, slightly grassy and herbal, some grapefruits there too. Grapefruits and orange dominate the flavor, slightly resinous hops, pale malts and faint caramel on the finish. Nice bitterness, feels refreshing and has some interesting nuances. Tasty.

Theydon_Bois (9725) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle split at Leightons cloud house, thanks to Foigus, 02/09/14. Lightly hazed golden with a well appointed off white covering that retains. Nose is light plastic, bitter orange, pale malt, straw, tangerine. Taste comprises citric sherbets, grass, earthy hops, tangerine. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Plastic burps ensued. So so - the plastic nose lets this one down and the hops were pretty limited.

Dogbrick (8516) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Sample at Pint House. Pours a cloudy pale amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with flavors of mildly spicy hops, roast malt and fruit. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.
