Coronado Brewing Company (San Diego, California) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Gentle Giant on Friday, August 14.
Crafted to serve as a liquid celebration of Coronado Brewing Company’s 24th year of brewing in San Diego, Gentle Giant is a Triple Hazy New England-style India Pale Ale brewed with “a blend of Idaho Gem, Sabro, Cashmere, and Chinook hops that lend the beer a tropical, fruity hoppiness.” Weighing in at a substantial 10% ABV, Gentle Giant 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.”
Gentle Giant is scheduled to release at all Coronado locations on August 14 and will hang around only as long as supplies last. This Limited Release offering will be available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans exclusively at Coronado Brewing locations in San Diego, Coronado, and Imperial Beach. Prost!
