Earlier this year CBC decided to roll out a new India Pale Ale as part of it’s 20th Anniversary and it has become so popular it is now a year-round offering for CBC. Hop Roar West Coast Style India Pale Ale is a nice and juicy 7.5% ABV and 82 IBU from Columbus, Centennial, and Citra in the boil with Chinook, Amarillo, and Citra dry hops. While it is bitter it has a very nice hop backbone to balance the decidedly hop centric brew. You will not find it outside of NC, but CBC has increased distribution in NC and eventually should be available across the state.
