Wife surprised me with this gem.

Pours a pretty clear orange/amber colored ale with a nice off-white foamy head with decent retention.

Lots of citrus abounds the senses here. Oranges, grapefruits, pineapple, tangerine....and insert your own citrus and it's probably there. Some nice pine scents and a touch of grass.

The taste is they way I like my IPA's. A lot of up front bittering citrus and just a tad bit of malt. The malt is definitely there, but comes through in the backbone of this brew. Just a slight bitter aftertaste. Really a nice combo of hops and malt.

Big mouthfeel here.

Overall I was very impressed. I wasn't a huge fan of Coronado but this one may make me revisit some of their beers. This is a BIG flavored IPA and though the price point was a bit high IMO (8.99), it was a very good beer for the style. Plus there's a mermaid with a pitcher of beer on the bottle and who doesn't love a mermaid. But Aquaman was, and still is a wimp.
