Clear golden amber in the Duvel tulip. Nice white foam with some lacing, but it doesn't stick around with any conviction. However, it's pleasantly spritzy in the mouth. Very fragrant with a odd but interesting fruitiness.
Plenty of the big hop flavors. Eventually the long bitterness catches up, but it's not a bite right off. Light bodied and tangy. Some plain malt flavors with a fair amount of sweetness. Hot and fumey with alcohol. Apple flavors with something tropical in the hops. Just a scratch of pine in the long bitter finish.
A fairly drinkable DIPA with plenty of octane. It's a nice hop flavor and the rest of the bottle will go to juice up the cheap lager. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Barons Marketplace on Point Loma Blvd.

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.
