Very nice, clean, straw colored pour with a frothy off white foam cap and streaks of lacing too. Quite to floral bouquet aroma compliments the flavor matching the aroma with some citrus and pine. Medium carb and pretty smooth. I found I really enjoyed this quite a bit!

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!

This is an excellent beer. Looks and smells great, and the flavor matches the citrus and floral hop notes from the smell perfectly. Just the right amount of carbonation and lightness to make this an easy to drink beer, for a DIPA. Best Coronado product I've tried.

Surprise beermail from ThaFATkid. Poured from a growler into a Goose Island tulip. A really gorgeous pour with a clear, orange-gold color and a big fluffy sustained head. Lots of terrific tropical fruit notes on the nose. Big whiffs of oranges, grapefruit, peaches, and melons.

Medium body and a good, firm, silky smooth feel on this one. The flavor is just wonderful. Big bitter fruit flavors of grapefruit and oranges all well-balanced against a solid malt backbone that contributes just the right amount of sweetness and body. Toast, marmalade, and orange zest carry across the palate. The beer is quite bitter, but so well-balanced it is extremely drinkable. No trace of booziness. Finishes fairly strong, leaving flavors of orange rind and jolly ranchers behind.

Wow! A terrific IIPA. Brewers everywhere seem to be perfecting the notion of a big, fruity, citrus-flavor-overloaded IIPA. I couldn't be happier. IPAs and IIPAs with big tropical fruit characters are what this style is all about. Awesome!
