look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Painted 22 oz. bomber served into a pint glass. The Frog's Breath pours a clear light gold in color and with a half inch of off white foam. A light carbonation from the bottom of the glass is just enough to keep a surface cap on the pour. A second and more robust pour yields better results as perhaps it was a bit too cold initially.

Offers a decent hop aroma wrapped up with a bit of lime in the delivery. Warming brings out more classic pine and citrus as the lime becomes more subdued. Not overly abundant and in fact a bit thin for an IPA however, yet fairly well integrated with spices.

Light sense of lime follows on the taste of this brew. Light citric bready character in the middle and a certain astringency on the finish that isn't really a hop driven bitterness. A decently lingering finish closes with another quick flash of lime infused grain. Lime surely trumps the lemon and orange zest added to this brew yet it remains subtle which matches a subtle hop character as well. Overall an easy drinking IPA though largely due to a lack of hop depth with just enough citrus and spice and malt to give it a plesant albeit interesting balance.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours a golden, copper in color with a small amount of head and lots of particulates. Carbonation looks average to mild. Head retention is pretty weak, quickly subsiding to a thin layer of creamy film. There is a little bit of oil left on the edges of the glass as you drink, but most of the foam doesn't stick. Not exactly a looker, but it does pique my curiosity. This may be the most particulates I've ever seen in a brew, which is slightly off-putting.

S: Very prominent Centennial hops with an earthy, grainy undertone and lots of citrus zest with notes of lime, honey and a tiny bit of alcohol astringency. Not overly aromatic at first, but opens up a bit as it warms.

T: Follows the nose pretty well. Citrus zest with notes of lime, orange and lemon. Some spiciness. Pretty well balanced with a bit of yeast and an earthy, buttery, grain that is hard for me to distinguish. Finishes with a lingering soapy, citrus hoppiness. Surprisingly tasty, the kaffir lime tangos nicely with the Centennial hops creating a very tangy, citrusy overtone that really pleases the citrus-hop enthusiast in me.

M: Medium bodied with less than average but lively carbonation that tickles the tongue and a good amount of chewiness. Finishes crisp and a little dry but not overly so and certainly not a palate wrecker.

O: Really glad to see more stuff from Coronado Brewing Company on the shelves in my local stores as they've always had a lot to offer but didn't distribute widely. I must say I had fairly low expectations for this one after the pour, but it was quite tasty and drinkable, which are perhaps the most important qualities. If you dig citrusy brews with a bit of balance, this one is for you. Cheers!
