COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
CBCís overriding mission is to brew beers that are 100% true to our San Diego roots. Our spring seasonal, an unfiltered Belgian-style IPA, does so in spades thanks to aggressive West Coast hopping, while paying tasteful homage to Old World flavors and brewing traditions.

Scouser (297) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Pours a yellow golden colour with lots of bright white lacing, a nice looking beer. Not much aroma, smells malty, cardboard, with a hint a citrus., thatís about it. Tastes of.. Well...dare I say beer. It has some citrus lemon flavor to it. This is at best an average beer.

Braudog (6014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle. Bright golden color with just a bit of haze. Piled on top is a tower of bright white foam. What little aroma escapes is vaguely wild, but quite subtle. This drinks with a powerful fruity front, pineapple and a dusting of yeasty fuzz. Very light in character, bordering more on a saison than an American IPA. Good. (#5618, 8/12/2014)

On tap at the Orange Street location. Pours yellowish copper solid bright white head and nice sticky lace. Aromas of citrus hops, Belgian yeast and light caramel. Floral hop bitterness with some mild grassiness, accompanied by a bready malt backbone. Medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a crisp bitter finish with lingering Belgian yeasts.

slowrunner77 (7100) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Outside of Belgian ipa needing its own style, isnít 9% an imperial? Anyway, rather unassuming filtered golden color. The aroma is citric and piney. Little Belgian, but itís there in the finish after a hoppy punch in the face. Lida chill for these days, but not bad

Pours a typical gold color and has minimal lacing. Smells of hops and tastes decent. Was fairly disappointed with the outcome of this one.....Will pass next time around.

Just a hint of spice to let you know there is a bit of Belgium here. The aroma is malty sweet with a lot of citrus and pine. The flavor starts with a bit of sweetness and a bit of spice but gives way to the citrus and pine. Dry and refreshing, a very good brew.
