Beer Review #69

Coronado Brewing Co. & Karl Strauss Brewing Company Core Values West Coast IPA

Canned. Date Not Recorded. ABV 6.8%

Appearance: Slightly Hazy, Straw Colored, Bubbles, and a Finger and half-width of soapy bubbles on the head

Aroma: Sweetness, Dank, Mango, Pineapple, Tropical Fruit Bowl

Palate: Orange Peel, Slight Dank

Finish: Bitter, Slight Tartness

Experience: Both these breweries are well known in San Diego and constantly put out amazing beer. So when they team up I know I am going to get a good beer. And that is what I got! A well balanced tropical meets west coast IPA. I have noticed more and more of this style recently. Something new, unique and very enjoyable was the northwest apples used in this beer. Really helped give it a nice refreshing finish. When it gets hot out there, this is a great take on the west coast IPA that won’t wreck your palate and very crushable. Score: 4.5/5.
