Hop fan? Cismontane fan? Did you like the Double Rainbow? If you answered yes to any of these questions you can’t miss this event. Seriously.

This will be the hoppiest beer to come out of Cismontane and maybe even all the OC. With over 3lbs per barrel of hops during brewing, the finished product came in at a whopping 140 IBU. Don’t worry too much about the hop punch because the 11.5% ABV should take the edge off. HA!

Dos Cone Es gets its name because it is a double “Dos” of the Coulter IPA, which is named after the largest pine “Cone” on earth and the “Es” simply is… Also, if you say it fast after having a few is sounds like “Dos cojones”.

Hazy amber with a thin white foam. Immediately you’re hit by the hop aroma and then floored by the hop bitterness. This is a hop head dream. Pine, citrus, white fruit and more bitterness. Huge.

glowing red orange. aroma lactic caramel potato chips. Flavor Pine gusher pineapple caramel, oak, whiskey. Flavor is out of whack very strong in multiple directions too bitter too sweet. Should be called a barley wine. Lighter in body than barleywine

Bottle at Whole Foods. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A big fruity nose, resin and oak. The flavor is really sweet sticky hops, much like a cedar aged brew, spicy, some sugary, pine, sharp perfume. Solid beer.

BlackHaddock (5070) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2015
One of six beers on a flight at Bru Grill and Market, Lake Forest, Orange County on 21st May 2015. Impressive stuff, really enjoyed this. Amber pour with a minimal topping. Aroma and taste was a blend of sweet malty molasses (caramel and toffee notes) and floral hops (with a bitter edge). Interesting and different, the sort of beers I love to try. The alcohol is hidden well by the depth of flavours but you know it is there and it adds to the enjoyment and suits the brew nicely.

kaser (4319) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Huge beer. Cloudy thick orange pour from bottle at home, from Blackwells. Honey, pine, oak, aroma. Oak, carmel, hoppy, floral, and a little whiskey flavor to it. A lot going on in this beer. Pretty pleasant.

Nocturne (1273) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2015
500ml bottle. Mid amber shade. Dense off-white head. Smells hoppy, wet, leafy, juicy, faintly floral. Rye is there. Really clean tasting, fair old bitterness from the hops. Feels a lot more like a double IPA than I expected, less malt backbone and the hops are leading it. Drinks real easy. Good stuff.

Wow, this is a strong beer, strong alcohol taste that is. The color is amber. It has settlement floating in it. Reminds me of a strong pale ale without some of the bitterness. Tasted on 3/17/2014. Picked up for $10.55 a pint.

Garrold (2831) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle from Marketplace Alehouse and Deli, Doncaster. Hazy gold. Thin, sticky, white head. Very resinous. Fusty, bloomy, orange. Taste is big bitter. Plenty of boozy sweetness. Big, chewy, resinous palate. Finish is all of that, with a light booziness. Very nice indeed.

lusikka (7594) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 11, 2014
500 ml bottle as "Cismontane Dos Cone Es American Strong Rye Ale Aged on Oak Chips". Pours an amber copper colour with a thick white firm head. Aroma is very intriguing with English toffee, pine, herbs and wood. Flavour is very rich and thick with massive floral bitterness, heavy pine notes, grapefruit, bread, toffee, mild tart wooden notes, orange zest and herbs. Full bodied and oily mouthfeel. Alcohol is dangerously well hidden. The bitterness here is just awesome. 140 IBU is very present. Brilliant.
