Coronado Brewing Co. is ringing in the New Year with its much-anticipated North Island IPA. Originally brewed as a pub-only draft offering last summer, North Island IPA quickly gained an avid following and now resides in the company’s Seasonal Selection series. North Island is the company’s take on a New England-style IPA, and showcases the style’s characteristic hazy appearance and juicy flavor. “New England IPA’s really took off last year and we were inspired to take that style and put our west coast spin on it,” says Ryan Brooks, Brewmaster, Coronado Brewing Company. “The end result is an unfiltered IPA bursting with tropical and citrus hop flavors, without any harsh bitterness.”

North Island IPA is brewed and double dry-hopped with a blend of Citra, Mosaic, Centennial and Chinook hops, for a ton of bright citrus notes, juicy fruitiness, and a hint of pine. The beer is fermented with a British yeast strain known for imparting subtle fruity esters that complement the hop profile and ripe fruit notes in the beer. Unlike many of the company’s other beers, North Island is left unfiltered, showcasing the haziness that is the hallmark appearance for this style. “The reception for this beer has been amazing,” says Brooks. “People are enjoying the juicy notes of this beer and it’s a great addition to our portfolio of IPA’s.”

North Island IPA is available as a seasonal selection in six-packs, 22oz, and on draft throughout the company’s distribution network, now through March. For more information about North Island IPA and where to find the beer near you, please visit XXXXX. Stay Coastal. Cheers.

This New England-style IPA is bursting with ripe, tropical juiciness. A hefty dose of Columbus, Centennial, Citra and Mosaic hops produce bright notes of mango, orange, and melon. British ale yeast accentuates the hop fruitiness and gives this unfiltered beer a dense, foggy haze like the coastal marine layer swallowing the north side of our island.
