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.

"Tastes like stale pineapples and cat pee", I blurted out to my roommate when I took my first sip of this. Not to suggest this beer is badly done - it has a round, full nose, interesting flavor profile, and a nice smooth finish that isnít too bitter. I guess I just donít care for the hop profile they used. I canít find information about what that is, but it doesnít seem to be my thing.

Braudog (5999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle. Itís never a great sign when beer erupts from the bottle like a capped volcano. And this initially poured as 80% foam. It eventually settled into a hazy, golden-amber glass, with a defiant cap of rocky foam. Thereís little to no distinguishable aroma. The beer drinks cleanly, with whispers of earthy and malty ales of the past. Hints of pine leaf, caramel and malt. Subtle sweet finish. (#5971, 5/17/2015)

wyzzywyz22 (2094) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle from Bottle Dog, Kings X, London. Poured a clear amber colour crowned with an off-white head. Nose had some grapefruit, earthy hop and melon but a bit muted. Flavour was similar with a little rye and a solid sweet malt spine. Hops somehow a little smothered. Bitternes ok, but not completely satisfying. Ok IPA if a tad disappointing.

Bier ruikt lekker fris naar citrus. Koperkleurig. Fris bittere smaak die lang blijft hangen. Lekker !

euniceradio (145) - Colton, California, USA - APR 16, 2015
Bomber into nonic pint. Hazy deep orange. Light head. Aroma of big sappy pine, flowers and actually smells like a good cologne I used to have: Polo Blue. Dang this is potent...must have dry-hopped the heck out of it. Taste is of pine needles, earth, bubblegum, grapefruit, mango, grass and caramel rolls. Very complex. Nice medium mouthfeel.

Foxbush (1483) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Draft This was a guest beer at the Newport Beach Brewpub. The IPA poured a cloudy amber with a small off white head with lacing. You detect hop aromas of citrus and spice. The ale had a medium body with average carbonation. This is a decent IPA. The finish comes too quickly. Sturdy bitterness cleanses the palate and readies it for another swallow.

On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours copper with a rich beige head and a citrus aroma. There is a rich caramel malt flavor with a bitter finish.
