Brewers Description of this Summer Imperial IPA:
“Coronado Brewing Company’s bold and fruity Sock Knocker Imperial IPA launches this April as part of the company’s Brewer’s Series. The return is also the start of the four-pack, 12-ounce offerings throughout the seasonal series that features beer produced in small-batch brews. Sock Knocker pours golden orange, with a hoppy, citrus flavor that lingers well into the finish. Amarillo, Centennial, Columbus and Simcoe hops unite to create an immensely floral, botanical nose and a veritable explosion of citrus and pine on the palate. With an even more obscene hop overload than Coronado’s infamous Idiot IPA, Sock Knocker is an India Pale Ale truly deserving of its imperial crown.”
Coronado’s Crown Series Sock Knocker summer IPA is captivating in both appearance and aroma. The beautiful golden orange facade issues a divinely potent aromatic cocktail of honey, tropical fruit, malts, wood, citrus, and hops. Consuming reveals a full rich semi-sweet draw which is both medium in body and carbonation. The experience reveals sharp hops and mild fruits (mango or kiwi) with a tepid creamy base.
In a world occupied with mostly mild summer beers, this imperial IPA is sure to knock your socks off.
