Hazy yellow body with a small fast dissipating head. Resin floral aroma. Has sort of a cap gun smell. Taste is resin taste with lots of grapefruit. It’s ok.

Good solid refreshing DIPA. I'm not sure why people are giving this a sub par review. Or maybe because I live where they brew this I always get it fresh. IMHO Sock Knocker is Coronado's best IPA in their lineup. Great refreshing grapefruit notes definitely trying to profile after Sculpin. Great beer!

Cloudy, gold color. Frothy head that settles slowly and in a lumpy fashion. Webby lace on the glass.

Beyond the usual IPA smells of mostly floral hop and a solid malt base, there appears to be a cooked cabbage-like sourness. A bit distracting.

Solid malt start to this DIPA. The hop never kicks in as viciously as most. The aftertaste is lengthy but mild. Most noticeable is the warming alcohol which is omnipresent. The carbonation is quite low and the body is appropriate for the style. Overall, it comes across as creamy. This is an easy to drink DIPA.
