Description 

Bursting with tropical dankness, this beer is everything you want from a San Diego-style IPA. It’s jam-packed with hop fruitiness, and refreshingly dry. Crack one open and get ready to feel those Weekend Vibes.

Weekend Vibes IPA by Coronado Brewing Co. is being evaluated as an American IPA (Category 21A) from the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines.

Weekend Vibes IPA pours a light gold with near brilliant clarity, and the rocky white head leaves a thick and persistent stand on the beer. The aroma features prominent mixed tropical fruit with light pineapple and fresh mango, followed by an earthy, citrus grapefruit rind. The aroma has a light impression of sweetness. A touch of grainy malt emerges as the hops fade down along with a light floral alcohol character. The flavor follows with prominent and mixed tropical and citrus fruits, with pineapple, mango and grapefruit zest. The hop flavor lingers for a long time through mid-palate where it is joined by a moderately high and smooth hop bitterness that lasts into a medium-dry finish. As the beer continues to warm, a light grainy maltiness and floral alcohol character develops. Despite the solid hop presence there is no astringency on the palate.

This is a well-brewed American IPA that showcases the overall hop character and is sure to be a year-round palate pleaser, especially for those who consider themselves hop heads.
