CBC and our fellow islanders at Maui Brewing Co are bridging the distance from Hawaii to the mainland with big flavor, camaraderie, and generosity. This centennial, chinook, and nugget-stoked IPA, made floral with the addition of hibiscus flower, is the first of an annual series of collaborative beers benefiting local charities. This time around, a donation will be made to Beer for Boobs, a Susan G Komen 3-day team formed by San Diego company White Labs, who contributed the yeast for this brew. No matter which side of the Pacific you’re on, there’s no better reason to " Drink Pink!"

22oz bottle, Stone brewing type label. Orange color, light pink hue. Aroma is awesome. Huge florals, sweet tropical flower nectar scent. Flavor is of an IPA. Pale malts, bitter PNW hops. Kinda mild, nothing wowwing. (3885)

marcus (6438) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle from Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours orange copper with an attractive pink-tinged beige head and a floral citrus aroma. There is a perfumy caramel malt flavor with a moderately bitter hop finish.

Had this one on tap at The Local as a free pour from a nice bartender (just 2 oz.). Pours a golden orange with a bit of a pink hue, with a fluffy white head on top. Aroma is very floral, as expected, with hibiscus definitely there alongside some tropical fruits. Flavor is vegetal hops and a light hibiscus influence that makes this finish nicely clean. The hibiscus lingers on the palate and is rather refreshing. Light body and very easy drinking. Would go well on a hot summer day.

bhensonb (10970) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours translucent copper with a foamy white head. Aroma is very citrus/floral. Hint of caramel. Med body or better. Flavor starts somewhat earthy, moves on to spicy, then maybe some citrus. I can imagine Hibiscus - cause there is a perfumey/floral note. It’s dry, bitter and a real mouth grabber. All this at only 4.9%? Mirabile dictu!

Draft. Clear pale yellow pinkish color, with a thin head. Citrus, lightly floral, and fruit. Fairly watery. Not very interesting actually.

Sample on draft at Coronado. Was a lovely rose color and had a nice floral smell. Unfortunately the Hibiscus gave it a odd almost potpurri type flavor that was definitely not my cup of tea.
