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.

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.

16oz bottle pours with a clear copper body that supports a full nearly creamy head of tan foam. Right when I pop the top my aromatic senses are assaulted by garlic and shallots and onion dank hoppy goodness. Upon further inspection the dankness doesn’t seem as bold and I also pick up thin snippets of citrus hops. The taste is similar, yes I say, as I get a nice mix of dank earthy shallot like hop flavor and bitterness with a flash of citrus too. It moves into being progressively more bitter midway and into the finish enhancing the experience. This is nice stuff with pleasing balance between hop bitterness, hop flavor and a lightly sweet malty body.

aroma is dominated by pine and caramel, reminds me of Denogginizer. Dark golden, brilliant white head, great lacing! Rye evident, booze subdued, tremendous balance: caramel and pine. Rye makes for a slick and smooth mouthfeel, little to no astringency. Overall a great case study in a balanced IPA; reminding us that IPA can be just as much about a malt profile as the hops, very drinkable. Not a common flavor profile for the region- this beer stands out, like it or not!

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

Lightly hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Very light airy palate, light as a feather! Light malt base, mildly sweet. Lovely hops - minty pine, whispers of skunk and lime. Mild hop spice. Finishes airy and light. Lovely balance of hop flavours and so light and drinkable.

A - Pours a hazy golden-orange with a finger of frothy slightly off-white head. The head fades down at a fairly slow pace leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of grapefruit, tropical, citrus, and pine hops with some sweet caramel and bready malts. T - Starts off with grapefruit, tropical, and citrus hops with some bitterness and sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, some pine hops and some more resiny bitterness. The finish is a mix of grapefruit and pine hops with some sweet caramel and bready malts. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice hop profile and bitterness throughout. Good hop and malt balance as well.

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.

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!

Bottledog. Cloudy pale gold with 1/ 2 inch head. Funky grass, tangerine. Mild rye burn followed by bitterness well balanced. Dry lemon, mineral bitter. Little oily then great dry end. Very tasty and elegant all round.

Bottle from Bottledog, King’s Cross, London. Hazy dark gold colour with large frothy white head. Aroma of citrus orange, pine, marmalade. Flavours are nicely balanced malts, citrus hops, pine, resin. Nice medium, foamy and smooth mouthfeel. Some alcohol. Long light hoppy bitter finish. Impressive.
