Haven't tried anything from Coronado yet, thought this might be a good one to start with.
Pours a slightly murky dark copper color. Reasonable lacing throughout the session. Nice dose of sediment upon pouring the second half of the bomber.
Smells of Simcoe cat piss west coast typical IPA nonsense.
Taste is a slight redemption from the smell. Yes, its piney and hoppy, but also fruity and a decent malt character to sweeten things up. Not gross hoppy like Stone beers, but this one isn't over powering.
Mouthfeel is slightly watery.
Overall this beer is just blah. I love me a nice IPA. Not really feeling this one though. It's hoppy, it's malty... but there is no balance. Definitely tasting somewhat of a disconnect. I've honestly had hoppier IPAs than this. Worth a try I suppose.

The place I purchased this suggested this to me. I don't know if they were just trying to get rid of it or they genuinely liked the beer, but two salespeople mentioned it to me. I am a big hoppy IPA kind of guy. This one was not a bad beer, but based upon the suggestion, and comparison I thought it would be in the same range as Sculpin, to me there was no comparison. Sculpin is a much better beer.
Appearance: Orange almost a bit hazy, very little head, nice color.
Smell: Not as hoppy as I would imagine based upon the 4 C's the bottle claims the brewers put in the beer. Four C's meaning four C named hops, I won't list them here but its on the bottle for reference.
Taste: Not much going on here. Maybe it is a good intro IPA, but my palate has evolved into something that can handle a more aggressive hop profile.
Overall: This is not a bad beer, good intro/gateway IPA, but not all that great.
