A-Pours a semi-hazed, yet glowing orange color. Head is a very solid wedge of foam. Lacing is rather subtle.

S-The quartet of Amarillo. Centennial, Columbus and Simcoe hops bring about a reasonably potent mixture of hoppiness. It doesn't go much further past citrus in my book. It's also very tangy smelling. Dried grain and bread malt.

T-Unfortunately, I get some buttery diacetyl on the finish. Otherwise, I taste candied citrus, sweet grapefruits and an overall tangy hoppiness. Pretty straightforward. A mix of pale and caramel malt.

M-Fuller bodied. Alcohol is noticeable but at 8.5%, it's not bad. Bitterness is pretty standard for the style.

O-This beer really just sinks into the abyss of mediocrity and 'genericness'. It's not bad! It's not special, either.

Awesome beer! Crisp golden appearance that has become one of the best characteristics of a double IPA. The smell is very good and almost overpowering. The amount of Dry hops must have been crazy. It tastes just like it smells, wonderful! Big west coast hops with a nice dank finish. I think that the citrus is more of an undertone with the dank stank taking over after a while. This is what hop heads crave. The mouthfeel is nice and light. Its a beer that you could drink way too easily. My only gripe was that my bottle seemed a bit undercarbonated. I am way out in NC though so it may have been due to shipping.

Overall this is a great beer to try. I am enjoying the hell out of it right now and if there are a few more at the store i may have to snag them!

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

Appearance

Transparrent golden amber, white frothy head with medium lacing. Almost looks like a typical amber lager

Nose

Fresh-bold hops, citrus, slight yeast, medium malt, slightly sugary, vegetal notes

Palate

Initially the hop flavor comes in smooth and then explodes on the tongue which them simmers and smolders into a bitter rich hop finish. Additional notes of Oranges and yeasty banana tones

Overly

Another dangerously drinkable beer from Coronado. Smooth and medium bodied with all the notable characteristics that hop heads love. I greatly appreciate the fresh hop flavor that I’m coming to notice is a characteristic in all of Coronado’s hopped beers. They always taste great and the hops don’t taste stale, old or tired. Another wonderful beer.

A - This brewery is coming up! Wow. Pours a great orange, yellow, gold mix, very little head, perhaps 1 finger, mild retention.

S - Smells amazing, spices, and the hop profile really shines through. You get the tropic smell, citrus, bitter, sweet, pine, molasses, the mild bready, a bit of the malt, just a great nose.

T - The taste is amazing, It's unique forsure, the best way to describe it is tangerine like, then pineapple, then lime, then sweeter flavors coming through, then back up with a pine, earthy tone.

M - The mouthfeel is light to medium, which is hard to believe for a beer of this quality and abv.

O - Overall, this is an amazing beer, and should be on your list. WILL HAVE AGAIN!
