Gentle Giant is a Triple Hazy IPA brewed specifically to release in conjunction with CBC’s 24th year of brewing in San Diego. The beer is brewed using a blend of Idaho Gem, Sabro, Cashmere, and Chinook hops that lend the beer a tropical, fruity hoppiness. At 10% ABV the beer is full-bodied, yet juicy with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. “I like brewing big IPA’s to celebrate our anniversary each year,” says Mark Thiesen, Head Brewer, Coronado Brewing Company. “The blend of hops we used was pretty unique and brought out really nice tropical, fruity, juiciness in a triple IPA. The end result is a surprisingly drinkable, yet full-bodied IPA that’s a perfect toast to our 24th year of brewing.”
