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”.

Bottle from Birratrovo, Como
Cloudy amber color with red hue; large creamy head. Strong aroma of sweet caramel and fudge; fruity (strawberry jam); lightly yeasty and feety. Full bodied; round mouthfeel; good malt and caramel flavor, a touch of fudge, moderately sweet; strong bitterness with orangey fruitiness and piney resins.
Nothing new under the sun, just a plain, bold and good American Strong.

Dogbrick (7586) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Sample at House Beer. Reddish-amber color with a medium creamy white head that diminishes gradually. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, ripe fruits and hops. Full, chewy body with flavors of sweet malt, fruit and earthy hops. The finish is incredibly sweet with a lingering caramel malt and subtle aftertaste. Decent overall.

16-oz. Thanks, K! Pours a murky rubied dark amber with a scant little white head. Big burly overly sweet boozy ethanol nose. Some sweet sugary underattenuated rye malt in there as well. Heavy thick body. Sluggish carb. Sugary sweet heavy caramel and slippery malt sugar mid palate. Long cloying heavy grain finish.

marcus (6320) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours amber with a sporadic beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a full-bodied caramel malt flavor with a dash of rye bitterness. Actually quite sweet for a rye beer, probably due to brown sugar. 130 IBUs are well-hidden, as is the alcohol.

bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Bomber from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy orange with a slight creamy beige head. Aroma is boozy, citrus, pine, maybe rye. Full bodied. It’s brown sugar, lots of hop, detectable rye spice. It’s a fairly well balanced barley wine to me. Despite the boozy aroma, there’s little if any heat. There’s a sensation - could be hop, or rye spice, or alcohol or a combo. Very nice drink.

Flavor a of spicy rye creamy brown sugar fruity sweet residual sugars peppery notes lingering sweet ale yeast sweetness. Big bodied spicy peppery alcohol. Interesting.

popery (1351) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 2, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a nice warm red-tinged amber color. Cloudy, lots of sediment towards the bottom of the bottle. Medium light khaki head. Creamy. Good retention and lacing. Lots of hops and rye in the aroma. Hops are a mix of pine resin, grapefruit and pineapple with a little bit of blackberry and wildflower. Big caramel note. Lots of spicy, doughy rye flavor. Taste is fairly sweet. Lots of caramel and rye. Big piney hops. Good dose of bitterness but not overbearing. Some booze. It’s a bit much but for a 11.5% DIPA/ASA, I’m not going to criticize too much. Finish is floral, bitter and sweet with caramel. Lingering pine flavor. Mouthfeel is thick and a bit low on carbonation. Good beer, but it still suffers from the common flaws of big (>10% abv) hoppy beers.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2013
750ml bottle. Poured an amber color with an off white head. Citrus, some caramel, and I was getting some tropical fruitiness. Overall the 11.5% was well hidden.
