A- On tap less than 1finger head, quickly gone. Nice golden to copper tones and slightly hazey. Mountains of lacing on the glass and legs that look like waterfalls.

S-strawberry and citrus noted very heavy. Nice fruity and balanced smell. Medium hop character to the nose.

T- balanced fruity bitterness:
Pine, Strawberry, grapefruit, and and tangerine finish.

M-medium carbonation on the front of the tongue and a bite from enough hops in the back of the palate. Smooth finish with a slightly dry mouthfeel.

O- a nice DIPA that packs enough punch at 8.5, this one I consider a solid choice.

A: Poured a beautiful clear orange color with a nice soapy white cap. After a few sips the heads fades leaving a few subtle white bubbles and spotty lacing

S: A nice melon presence paired with some orange zest and pine needles. Tropical and passion fruits galore.

T: Initial citrus and pine resin but this develops into a juicy melon/ mango show and continues with this theme and I dig it. Bittering is moderate, light alcohol some caramel covered bread crust for the base. Finishes moderately dry with a smidge of hop oils

M: Medium bodied with good carbonation. Loads of flavor on the palate.

O: A very good IIPA and just how I like it!

650ml bottle poured into tulip 6/2/13

A clear golden amber with just a few visible bubbles slowly moving towards the tight thumbs width of foam, not a big head but it sticks around long enough to leave several rings of lace, looks sexy

S big tropical nose, pineapple, tangerine, guava, grapefruit, lemon and lime, floral perfume and juicy fruit gum, there's a little pine and spruce with just a little hard caramel

T the tropical blast is toned down a little, more rind then the flesh on the nose, some tang powder and a little booze I didn't smell

M a nice bitter bite but not enamel stripping, a little slick after the bubbles calm down and just some faint heat going down but the booze is fairly well hidden, lemon and lime rind on the finish

O very well put together, a nice tropical DIPA that's a little to easy to drink. I loved the nose and really can't complain about anything, just a solid brew

I'm not happy with the 11$ price tag but I'm happy with the liquid inside the bottle, pretty solid beer and I might drink it again depending how wealthy I'm feeling

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a quarter finger white head with good retention and lacing. Nice IPA aroma of herbal and piney hops, citrus and light malt. Great flavor of citrus and pine hops, caramel malt, citrus and sweet light fruit juice. Finishes with good citrus hops. Creamy medium body adds a lot to the overall pleasantness of this IPA. With a lot of excellent IPAs to choose from, this one really came through. Coronado is new to the northwest, but I will definitely seek out their other beers after this one. Well done.
