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.

The taste starts quite acidic and fruity before a mild dose of pale malts and caramel comes about. Yeasty and a tad wheaty before a moderately spicy and herbal finish. The mouth feel is slightly sharp and lively, chalky ashy finish did lessen the enjoyment however.

MadRobin (2436) - Silver Spring, USA - APR 16, 2015
Poured from 22 oz. bottle. Clear, golden straw color with a yellowish-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of flower nectar, grapefruit, pine, tropical fruit, yeast and pale malt. Taste of grapefruit, tropical fruit, sweet malt, pine and coriander. Full/medium body and medium/low carbonization with a smooth mouthfeel. This beer has a strong Belgian tripel character, yet with heavy West Coast-style hopping. It is surprisingly sweet, but with ample hop bittering for balance. It's unusual, but quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Broncowaldon (123) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Big hop single IPA. Earthy and maple like hop aroma, excellent and different at same time. Malt is slightly sweet but hops balance it out very nicely. Great carbonation to bring out hop aroma.

I am not sure why this scored out so low. The aroma was strong, fresh, and floral. Color was wonderfully light Amber. Taste was fruity, yet a bit bitter. Loved this beer and very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a lighter golden brown. earth,funky smell with piney under notes. Taste is not hoppy enough to compliment the underlying fruit. Overall ok beer, but have come to expect better from coronado

Beaver (1485) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2014
22 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with a big rocky white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet tropical fruit with some earthy funk.

The flavor is sweet bready malts, some fruit and some funk with a decent peppery bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.

Overall, a nice Belgian IPA. Heavy on the fruity hops with Belgian funk to complement.

jandd1983 (3234) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 9, 2014
It poured a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus hoppiness with some pine and grains. The taste was of sweet juicy citrus with a sweet grain backbone and a bit of grass. Good stuff.
