This morning we get to see a new beer and the beginning of a new series from Coronado Brewing in Coronado, CA.  This is Batch No 1 in the Stem To Stern Series and it is a Hoppy Red.  This small batch beer uses Denali and #07277 experimental hops and the beer will be packaged in 22oz bottles. Look for this imperial red ale to float in at 7.7%-AbV and stay tuned here for release details.
UPDATE 26 Jan 2017 from Coronado:

Coronado Brewing Company is sailing into unchartered waters with it's new innovation series, aptly named Stem to Stern. "Stem to Stern implies that nothing is off limits; we'll explore from front to back, beginning to end, and everything in between," says Ryan Brooks, Brewmaster, Coronado Brewing Company. "The concept of the series is to make limited, small-batch releases that allow us to experiment with new ingredients and have fun trying new recipes," says Brooks.

The first release in the quarterly series is Batch No. 1: Hoppy Red. Brewed with a blend of Denali and an experimental yet-to-be-named hop, this imperial red ale is bursting with tropical pineapple, apricot, and citrus notes. A complex malt bill of crystal, double roasted crystal, and Abbey malt, balances the assertive hoppiness for a bold but drinkable beer. "We really wanted to showcase some of the unique characteristics in the Denali and experimental hop we used," says Brooks. "The end result is a super hop-forward red ale that drinks like an imperial IPA but with more pronounced malt character."

Coronado will release a new batch of Stem to Stern each quarter, with limited quantities available in 22oz bottles and on draft, throughout the company's distribution footprint. Bottles and draft of Batch No. 1 are now available at the company's Tasting Room, and will begin hitting retail shelves beginning early next week.
