Notes: Cone and Cone was brewed with Two Row, Pilsner malt, and malted oats. Insane amounts of fresh Mosaic from our friends at Carpenter Ranches and fresh Azacca from Green Acre Farms were used throughout the brewing process resulting in a perfect tropical fruit storm.

Thanks snaotheus!
Golden tinged straw in hue with a fluffy, dense cap. Slow retreat leaves clumpy lacing.
Fresh and green. Initial pop brings waves of wet resiny pine, lemon blossom, orange zest, and finally some grapefruit.
taste follows faithfully. Flush with sticky resin, slightly weedy, and bountiful citrus notes. Grapefruit leads the way but notes of orange, tangerine, and lemongrass shine as well. A grainy sweet note peeks in below all of the hop glitter.
Mouthfeel is lively while still a bit pillowy. Gently bitter and dry on the back end.
Overall, quite tasty.

Beautiful beer: lemon-yellow hue, hazy nearly to the point of being opaque (but not pulpy), great head production, retention, and lacing.

Sharp lemon and pine on the nose - a bit of a throwback note to IPAs of yesterday. Tangerine, lemon, pine, and grapefruit lead the way, and quite strongly.

Flavor follows. It's impressively rich and flavorful, despite the moderate ABV (7.2%). Tasting notes are a wonderful blend of all the hop expressions you could ask, led by citrus, and followed by tropical notes with an accent of earth and dankness.

Medium bodied, and not while quite creamy, it still punches above its weight class. Plenty lively.

This is a fantastic fresh hop IPA.

16oz can served in a stemless wineglass. Stamped "TASTE THE DAZE" (so negative points for not actually putting a damn date on it).

Pours a hazy pale amber / brassy color with a medium sized head that shrinks into a clumpy layer along the surface and the sides. Smell is dank, resinous, green hoppy goodness.

Taste is along the same lines. Dank, resinous, green hoppy goodness, with a little bit of grainy/honeysuckle sweetness.

Mouthfeel is dry and clean. Overall, this is really nice.

32oz crowler purchased today at RidgeWood. I'd describe it pretty similar to what I described last year. It has a softness to it that is unusual, makes it feel luscious and dampens the hoppy hammerstrike a bit. It's really nice.

This one pours a dark-ish and slightly hazy golden yellow color, with a small head, and tons of lacing.

This one pours a moderately hazy golden yellow color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like pineapple, guava mango, sugar cookie, spicy hops, earth, and marijuana.

This is quite impressive. It's got that killer spicy bitter kick that so many fresh hop beers have, with a hugely juicy hop character up front, with just a hint of lightly malty sweetness that doesn't detract. The whole thing is quite creamy.

This is super smooth and creamy, with a phenomenal drinkability, and only a slight lingering bitterness.

Holy Mountain just might be my favorite brewery on the West Coast. This is so good, and just a great example of what fresh hop season can bring you.

2020 can picked up this afternoon. No canning date, but the hops haven't been ready for long, so I feel pretty comfortable that it's pretty fresh, ha. Bottom lists it as being Mosaic and Azacca.

Pour shows it to be on the hazy side of the spectrum, but not completely. Kind of an apricot colour, with a thick white head that settles to just a buzz cut on the liquid, but leaves a couple of souvenirs behind.

Nose is lush and deep. My first impression is mango, but like if it were sunk deeper. Not the high sweet notes, fruit the deep dark garden of the fruit. Has a bit of a dank edge to it as well. Not weedy, but dank. Just feels rich, like a physical presence. Thick as the fog that has the city blanketed at present.

Flavour is that same rich thick deep character. This is very, very good. Less specified mango, and more of an ephemeral swirl of honey tropical fruits, but again sunk down below that surface of sweetness to get into the pulp of it all. Tropical fruits and dank earthiness and a spicy little kick on the back end. Pleasant bitter follow through that lingers but doesn't buckle the tongue.

Medium thick body that has a fresh softness to it, before finishing dryer than I expected. I realize it's contradictory, but it's dry, but also has a hint of stickiness to the finish as well. Earthy bitter finish lingers pleasantly.

This is another fantastic beer out of a brewery from whom I've come to expect no less, and another example of why Fresh Hop season is the best time of the year, period.

16oz can into a tulip. Canned very recently, probably this week, but no date on bottom of can (it just says "Mosaic & Azzacca"). Pours a slightly hazy golden/straw color; not the opaque sludgy yellow we are seeing more and more often, but just a glowing, semi-transparent haze that could clear up a bit as it warms.

Aroma is punchy tropical goodness. Pineapple and other citrusy fruit juices, some lemon and orange peel, and gentle spice.

Taste is likewise tropical and acidic, citrus forward. Again, the word "juicy" is appropriate here. Pale, slightly biscuity malt in the background. Presumably this is a fresh hop version of Holy Mountain's delicious Kiln & Cone, which I think could have been a flagship beer for the brewery. Great balance here between the hops and the malt gives it depth.

Mouthfeel is just right, balanced, medium bodied. Nice crisp bitterness on the finish that never feels resinous or overpowering.

Overall, yet another very tasty, well made local fresh hop beer. We are truly spoiled in the Northwest this time of year.

Hazy gold-yellow with a minimal head leaving a thin white ring.

Smell is vanilla, orange, lemon, eucalyptus, resin, and dank mint.

Taste is toasted bread, orange, lemon, vanilla and eucalyptus with a slight, minimal bite.

Super frothy soft and pillowy, but only medium bodied with a semi-dry finish.

2017 version with wet citra and simcoe

Cloudy pale yellow-orange color with two fingers of white suds that are quick to dissipate and leave little lacing. Grapefruit, tangerine, oranges and cantaloupe mix together in the nose, with a very faint pepperiness behind. Light tasting, with soft white grapefruit bitterness and a big, pillowy mouthfeel. Zesty, too. This is a delicate beauty of a beer.
