Coronado Brewing Releases Tropical Darkroom Sour IPA

eTradeWire News/10554316
This Sour IPA with Kiwi is the First Release in the Company's 2020 Art Series.

SAN DIEGO - eTradeWire -- Coronado Brewing Company (https://coronadobrewing.com/) is proud to bring back its Art Series for 2020. The company first debuted its Art Series in 2018, and the series has since evolved to now feature fan-submitted art on each of its cans. Coronado will release three Art Series beers in 2020, kicking off the series with Tropical Darkroom IPA. The winning photo was submitted by San Diego-based photographer Derek Delacroix; Derek exclusively shoots palm trees in black and white, and for each print he sells, he donates 50% of proceeds to the Surfrider Foundation. His Instagram handle is @tropicaldarkroom (https://www.instagram.com/tropicaldarkroom/), and that was the inspiration behind the beer's name—Tropical Darkroom Sour IPA.

Tropical Darkroom (https://coronadobrewing.com/coronado-beer-serie...) is a kettle sour IPA brewed and dry-hopped with fruit-forward Sabro and Mosaic hops, for a bright, tropical hop profile. The brewers then added fresh kiwi puree to counterbalance the clean sour notes of the beer, for a refreshingly tart and bitter brew, with lingering kiwi sweetness. "We used a boatload of kiwi in the beer—almost 13 pounds per barrel," says Mark Theisen, Head Brewer, Coronado Brewing Company. "The Mosaic and Sabro dry-hop combo gives the beer a really nice tropical, piña colada-like quality that goes really well with the kiwi. The beer finishes tart, but not super sour. We really wanted to find the perfect balance between a kettle sour and an IPA, and I think we achieved that with this beer."

About Coronado Brewing Company

In 1996, when craft beer was still a foreign term and San Diego County was home to only a handful of breweries, the Chapman brothers Ron and Rick opened a brewpub in their hometown of Coronado. Today CBC stays true to its San Diego roots, brewing abundantly hoppy West Coast-style ales, which are available today in 14 US states and 12 countries.
