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!"

Drank from 22oz bottle poured into glass. Aroma- citrus hoppy notes. Wonderful aroma. Appearance- redish ruby color with light head. Appealing and different color. Taste- fantastic. Hoppy with floral notes. Can tell it would be a good standalone ipa but has a twist. Palate-sweet and sour guava tasting afteraste. Overall- very please. Enjoyed this special brew.

I found this at my local bottle shop and I thought it was a tasty IPA. I’d buy and drink it again if I they brewed it again.

650ml shared bottle at home from Craft & Draft, Amsterdam. Body is opalescent amber, small particles, head is small, white, creamy, mostly lasting, good lacing. Nose is fruity, flavor is floral, glue, honey, grapefruit, quinine. Medium sweet, medium hoppy bitter. Finish is quickly appearing long lasting hoppy medium to heavy bitter. Medium body, thin texture, soft carbonation. Easy, refreshing, simple bitter, floral feel is present but not more dominant than any good IPA.

Draught at The Rover, Göteborg. Hazy orange beer with a nice lasting offwhite head. Hoppy citrus flavor, floral, hibiscus, oranges, some grapefruit notes. Hoppy citrus flavor, hibiscus, dandelions, grassy, pine, some grapefruit. Decent experiment but no sensation.

adamnowek (1568) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2015
Hazy, pink-tinged orange colour. Aroma is nice and floral. A softer taste than many IPAs, as the hibiscus comes out quite subtly.

Bomber, pours a semi clear copper amber color with an off white head. Some suspended yeast sediment. Mild aroma with a bit of hops and sweetness. Flavor is nice with a hint of funk in the finish. Great cause and a decent beer. I would definitely buy again for both reasons.

tricksta_p (3148) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2015 On tap at Craft & Draft, Amsterdam. At first I thought this was infected with Brett, but the bartender assured me it was the hibiscus. Hmmm, I’m not sure, as it wasn’t very floral, just funky and slightly fruity. Flavour was moderate bitter. Not your typical IPA. I still think this was infected. Any way, I liked it a lot.

Tap @ Lilla Puben, Kalmar 150720. Fruity, malty and light spicy with hibiscus and light citrusy notes, medium sweet, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is dry, bitter and fruity with hibiscus.

AWISLguy (2320) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Bomber from Sonoma Cellars. Pours a very clear orangey pink - almost pink grapefruity - with a pink/white head. Nose is hugely floral, with tangy spices and citrus. Taste is of sweet flowers, tangy pine, grapefruit, some caramel. Herbal tangy and very dry. Almost a belgian yeast presence. Medium bodied with no alcohol noticed. Finishes sweet and tangy with some bitterness. Dry. Very interesting solid effort from a brewery that continues to hit their notes. 14.3

Borresteijn (6207) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2015
On tap at Craft & Draft. Hazy pinkish orange colour, white head. Aroma is light hoppy, light grainy, light tartness. Favour is light sweet, light tart, light fruity, some raspberry, light hoppy bitter finish, lemons. Light bodied. Grew on me, but not particularly great.
