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.

Cloudy light amber color with generous frothy head. Light malt and hop, not impressive. Smooth, lean body, with elegant light sweetness, good malt, salty feeling, strong bitterness, nice fruity and resiny touch.
Nice but could be fresher.

Une IPA plutôt ambrée qui se présente devant mes yeux. Ces derniers apprécient la tête durable formée par une mousse de couleur beige. Une fois mon nez plongé, je découvre des houblons un peu gênés par la présence des céréales caramélisés. Une fois les lèvres trempées, mes papilles confirment que les flaveurs de conifères et de pamplemousse n’arrivent pas vraiment à se sortir de la mêlée sucrée. La bouche me semble être bien normale. Corps, texture et bulles répondent à l’appel du style. La finale montre une amertume citronnée teintée de terre. Le genre d’India Pale Ale qui pousse à chaque coin de rue.

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 it’s not all that fresh. Bottle date looks almost 2 months old if I’m reading it correct. Still enjoyed but hope for fresher IPAs from a brewery on site -- too bad we didn’t 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, it’s 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 IIPA’s 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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
