Had on tap at churchkey in DC. Nice golden honey color, mostly clear, very small soapy off-white head.
Great hop nose. Very west coast. Simple.
Great taste. Solid malt background. Heavy hop flavors. Very nicely balanced. Citrus notes. Pine. Nice.
Good mouthfeel.

Great IPA.

Poured into a sniffer out of the bottle. Cb1011 on the bottle. Whatever that means.

Smells heavenly at first, grapefruit and flowers. A touch of resin. However, as it warms it smells a bit boozy. Notice I said a bit.

Tastes damn fine. The lady at whole foods told me it was like Pliny, I've never had it, but if it tastes this good then I'm sure it's quality stuff.

Mouthfeel is what I expect from a DIPA. Nothing wrong with it though.

Overall it's a real nice beer to watch a game with.

22 oz bomber poured into a Piraat snifter.

A: The beer poured with a nice 2 finger head which slowly thinned out leaving minimal lacing on the glass.

S: As I opened this bottle I was hit with a very strong piney and a less strong citrusy hop aroma.

T: The taste of this brew is almost all hops, grapefruit & piney as the malts played a very mild part in the flavor profile.

M: The mouthfeel had a moderate feel with only a little bit of the 8.5% abv being apparent.

D: I was really surprised as this Imperial IPA was both bitter and smooth and is a brew which you can drink all night long.

I'm now looking forward to trying some more brews form Coronado Brewing in the future. If you can find this beer, give it a try.
