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 youíre on, thereís no better reason to " Drink Pink!"

Fresh, crisp and floral. Pours a light red color with very little head. Smells fresh and piney - great hops. Taste is a combo of piney hops and hibiscus tea and it is delicious!!!! Finishes with an essence of guava and crisp hops. This is a surprisingly fantastic brew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.

This is a collaborative effort between CBC and Maui Brewing. One diminutive, but Iím told "strong" gal from Maui Brewing came out to Coronado to create this interesting concoction. Itís the most beautiful ale Iíve ever seen. Such a vibrant rose color. My only regret is that the white head faded so quickly. Emanating from the glass is a lovely grapefruit nose that nearly rivals itís appearance. The mouthfeel is nearly perfect. Very wet, slick with just the right amount of carbonation burn. Ok, the flavor is unique. Particularly, when considered in the context of the grapefruit bouquet. It is tart and floral. The flavor is consistent throughout. Some lagerish notes at the very finish.

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. Itís dry, bitter and a real mouth grabber. All this at only 4.9%? Mirabile dictu!

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Light crimson, honey, and golden tangerine body with a fluffy ivory cap. Lots of bitterness...orange rind, lemon zest, and grapefruit pith. Floral and herbaceous. Biscuit and candied tropical fruit. Love the low ABV...sessionable for sure!

Tmoney99 (10404) - 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.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 9, 2013
OK, hibiscus? Is this going to work? The 22oz bomber pours clear copper with a short lived off white head that attained a pinkish sort of hue. The aroma offers up modest fruity berry like notes, I guess this is Hibiscus, if I had a better understanding of it, lavender floral and a bit of citrus hops. The taste has a tea to lavender floral to a bitter citrus to start with and then running toward sort of near tart like berry notes. Nice mix of flavors where thereís a pleasing balance of malts, hops and floral notes.

DuffMan (6439) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 18, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Medium orange, lightly hazy. Lovely perfumey hibiscus floral notes carry the nosf and palate. Biscuit malts provide support. The finish gives way to late bitterness, allowing the delicate florals to shine. A nuanced IPA, not a hopheads delight, and certainly not a bitter bomb, but a lovely brew nonetheless.
