American-style IPA (alc 6.8% abv)
Hops: All-American Simcoe, Amarillo and Palisade.
Named after the part of the hop plant used in brewing, our Cone gets rave reviews for its intense, complex hop profile: strong and bitter with lots of grapefruit notes. Its all-American hops are added at four different stages in the brewing process, as well as double dry hopping.
Mountain: The mountain on the label is Ben Lomond, the southernmost and one of the most popular Munros. It is also one the most accessible.
Tops Out: 974m (3,196ft)Note: The Cone is one of our favourites but, sadly, is unavailable this year due to a shortage of American hops. We hope to have a relaunch in 2017, so watch this space!
"…Oh my, stone the crows! What an utterly amazing IPA this is. A hophead lover’s dream. I’m lost for words. The onrushing, galloping, sprinting American hops. The rasping bitterness. This is the standout IPA. The best Scottish IPA I’ve tried.
