COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Extensively hopped and dryhopped with a big roster of hops – Simcoe, Centennial, Cascade, Ahtanum, Chinook, and Amarillo – it’s big, bright, and floral, with just enough malt to balance. This American-style I.P.A. stands head and shoulders above its hoppy brethren, blending pale and honey malts to balance the palate without interfering in your herbal reverie, and creating a new American classic.

ronaldtheriot (1634) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - SEP 29, 2015
C.B.C. Flower Child has a thick, off-white head, a clear, orange-gold appearance, some ascending bubbles, and rather heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of strong mango hop oil and pale malt. Taste is of that, with a strong hop bitterness developing by the third sip. Mouthfeel is medium, and C.B.C. Flower Child finishes dry and smooth.
