BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Monkey Paw Pub & Brewery
California, United States
monkeypawbrewing.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.60%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Cornelius is an archetypal San Diego IIPA. The beer pours a bright gold with a sticky white head. The aroma explodes out of the glass with pine, orange and grapefruit. The taste follows the nose, with a nice distinct bitterness. We continue to evolve this beer with slight grist and hops adjustments. Always delicious and a perfect IIPA at 9.6% ABV that is deceptively easy to drink.

Enjoyed while visiting my Mecca (Stone Brewery) and enjoying a meal at their Bistro (a must-visit if ever in North County San Diego)! The Imperial IPA appreared, smelled, and tasted true to form...in fact this little 8oz (due to the silly ABC rule limiting the size establishments can serve when ABV's reach a certain level) was very tasty! The Monkey Paw appears to only available in SD's area, which bites as I'm only out here once a year!! Nevertheless, if you're in the SD area, do,yourself a favor a check this out...you won't be disappointed!
