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.

Vintage: 2013 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 confused… 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.

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.

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.
