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.

Pours an orangish yellow, quite dark for a WC IPA. Thin head that fades relatively fast. Huge "C" hop aromas pound the nose then assault the mouth on the first sip. This is a great big, massive tasting beer that only clocks in at 6.5%. The mouthfeel is just a little heavy but not overwhelming. Overall this is a great beer super hoppy, with a very dry finish, nicely attenuated. I love every sip.

Nice IPA that hits all the notes of the West Coast style. Good malty backbone, betrayed by the copper pour, with a nice froth. Pine in aroma and what hits you first in taste. This gives way to a lingering bitterness. Not a bad beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bvc (1159) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAR 7, 2013
16oz capped bottle. Orangish golden with a touch of haze and loose white head. Interesting hop aromatics, smells really like no other ipa that I have had. Mostly just smells like fresh squeezed oj, sweet pine and chewy sweet malt. More malty, some piney hops, some soap, finishes clean enough.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Oranges on the nose grapefruit as well juicy citrus nose. Muted but pleasant. Hazy orange pour thin bubbles not much head. Toasty light biscuit oranges soft sweetness. Light rye. Balanced but kind of muddled. Decent carbonation and balance. Not bad beer by any means just somewhat uninteresting.

BOLTZ7555 (2822) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Nice 14 karat pour with a dense ivory head. Grapefruit pith, orange peel, and caramel here. Perhaps I would move the caramel/malt/honey-baked biscuit forward on the list...it definitely is more prominent than I would have liked. Not a west-coast IPA, despite their latitude and longitude. still, well balanced and enjoyable.

Sammy (8680) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2012
Pours yellow with lace sheets. Oddly little aroma in my Samuel Adams engineered glass. Medium mouth feel, a little numbing. Reasonable IBU of 65, and good drink ability. Piney hops. Bottle courtesy OCBeerSociety

greenhorn1 (813) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Draft. Pours amber. Weak nose, mostly malt. Can’t really say anything else different about the flavor. Very weak hop presence. Tasted like an amber, not a good ipa.

ADfan (539) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 24, 2012
On tap it has an amber color in the glass. Aroma of citrus and pine. Taste has a mild hop bitterness with more citrus. Smooth beer.

Bottle. Pours a medium hazy copper with a little white head. Aroma is weak hops with a flavor to match.

1 Pint ;). Love it. As described on the label, this is one well balanced IPA, but like...perfect. Not too over the top, not too underwhelming, right in the middle. Flavors abound. Sessionable, but thick! Dank. Thanks to City Beer for the recommendation!
