CBC’s 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.

Hazy amber beer with a good pale cream coloured head. Palate is slightly soft with good minerally carbonation. Lightly skunky hops. Minerals. Mild Belgian yeast, a little salty. Good fruity contrast of peach and mango. Finishes fruity and fresh. Very drinkable. The whole 750 vanished in no time!

Oakes (13154) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2008
Orangey-amber with slight haze. Liquorice root, pomegranate, and somewhat cherryish nose. Deep taste - almost like a dubbel with dark fruits and liquorice in a pale beer. Slightly bitter, but moderately sweet in the finish.

brokensail (12277) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 9, 2011
A: The beer pours a golden amber color with a nice white head on top of it. S: Plenty of fresh citrus hop aroma to this one along with some floral and fruit notes. Plenty of yeast which gives it a touch of that "Belgian" feel, as does a hint of spice. Bready malts provide a touch of sweetness. T: Very fruit forward hops with lots of citrus and tropical fruit flavors coming through. A moderate hop bitterness is offset to an extent by some yeasty and mildly sweet bready malt flavors. M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Belgian IPAs often fall a bit short for me, but this was quite good. Very nice flavors to this beer.

bhensonb (11979) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 10, 2008
Bomber from South Bay Drug. Slightly hazy orange tinged amber color with a minimal white head that quickly degenerated into a few bubbles. My nose knows there’s a lot of pine in here, but it’s not sure whether there is also grapefruit. It’s a very strong aroma. Very full bodied with creamy carbonation. The flavor is like chewing pine needles, with a little malt sweetness. Finish is quite definitely bitter, but it’s smooth, balanced, not harsh. There’s a lot of hop, it’s just not harshly bitter. Damn, but it’s a fantastic drink.
