A-slightly hazy but a golden appearance. Head retention is good, but it would be difficult to have a bad head retention with a highly hopped up beer
S- Hoppy. Citrusy, but some pine to it. Perhaps a sweet malt characteristic as well.
T- Quite the taste to it. It not only has all the hop punch, but not kick; the finish is clean. It's got a floral taste to it too which balances out the hops and cleans up the finish.
M- Moderate. For an IIPA the body is perfect. No alcohol bite either which makes this beer very pleasant to drink.
O- 8.5/10 I'm sure there are better IIPAs out there, but this one is high quality. A definite must try.

A- Poured a very nice gold color, big two finger foamy white head, thick lacing.
S - Citrus zest, pine, oranges, peach, some pineapple, a slight musk, and some fresh bread.
T - Lots of hops, good juicy fruit flavors, nice strong bitter pine finish, a little on the drier side, and a nice balance of malt to bring everything together.
M - A lot of bitterness for most, but this is an Imperial.
O - Excellent west coast style IPA, very true to the style, Coronado doesnt get enough notice, their IPA's are solid.

Pours a four finger white head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Caramel and hop nose and flavor is a good blend of caramel and grapefruit hops with a lingering bitter aftertaste. 12oz bottle, from Gift Specialists Oceanside, California.

A---poured a bright lemony amber....a little short of clear...about 3/4 inch of thick white head with nice persistent lacing

S---aroma was very evident...citrus sweet off the bat...tropical fruit abounds

T---hoppy bitter at first but then warm fruity citrus after...very nice

M--not quite a dry finish..but not a slick persistenc either...a great balance with medium to medium plus carbonation to carry it down nicely

O---a very good IPA with great taste and body...awesome after a hot excursion..drink a couple...take a nap...do it again...lol
