The Last Spike refers to the ceremonial final spike driven to connect the rails of the First Intercontinental Railroad, connecting the East and West together in 1869. Cigar City Brewing Coronado Brewing Co. have teamed up 144 years later to celebrate that momentous union. By taking from the beginnings of a California-born style of beer and incorporating an American IPA spin, we offer a more robust and hop-forward version of a California Common. This beer has moderate notes of sweet toasted bread with a caramel background that is contrasted by traditional woody notes of Northern Brewer hops, pine notes from Chinook with supplementing white grapefruit notes from Pacific Jade. Prepare your palate for a full-flavored twist to an American craft brewing tradition. Cheers!

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    75cl bottle pours with a crystal clear body that supports a tall tan head of foam. The aroma is a little different. It seems floral, mineral, slightly earthy dry gravel and then some earthy lemon grass and some soft faint herbal notes. The taste is soft to supple with a mix of floral hops and malt sweetened earthy lemon grass. Behind those notes a thin layer of tangerine hard candy to caramel apple like sweet fruity esters help take this toward the finish. I’m getting more bitterness with pine hops as well as some biscuit malts as it warms.
