COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!"

Hazy amber beer, good white head. Palate is light, dry and minerally crisp. Light airy malt. There is a nice tangy fruit sherbet zing here, it really tantalises the tongue! Hibiscus fruits balance nicely with mildly skunky hops. Little pine. Finishes soft and semi dry with more sherbet zing. Love the sherbet! Light and very refreshing.

bhensonb (10902) - 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!

brokensail (10728) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Slightly hazed red color with a light pink head. Really nice citrus hop aroma up front. A fair amount of pine, sweet bready malt, and a fair amount of hibiscus. Lightly bitter and grassy in terms of the flavor. Some sweet bready malt, a little bit of herbs, lots of hibiscus, and some pine. Mild to moderate citrus, mostly grapefruit and orange peel. Weird candied orange flavor as it opens up.

Tmoney99 (10540) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured clear dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy floral and citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This a complex good brew.

Theydon_Bois (8076) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2014
Keg at Cornado brewpub, Coronado Island, SD 20/04/14. Clear amber with a moderate off white covering that retains well. Nose is caramel malt, bitter orange, light spice, floral hops, perfumed notes. Taste comprises orange pith, caramel malt, pinch of spice, herbal notes, red grapefruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a lingering hop bitterness. Decent enough floral driven IPA.

BMan1113VR (7853) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle, live rate. Pours with a lightly hazed, deep red to blood hued body with an off-white head. Aromas are packed with herbal, citrus, floral, dank, tangerine, hibiscus, DMTS hop notes. Pretty grassy. Low malt, medium esters. Lightly tropical. Flavors are a bit earthy, herbal, high co-humulone. Slight turnoff from what I was expecting. Still some lightly tart and floral hibiscus. Earthy, resin, crisp, light tangerine zest. Brisk finish, dry, somewhat crisp. Fuller carbonation with a lighter body. Didn’t quite live up to what I was expecting for some reason.
