I almost didn't buy this beer, and actually waited until the very last bottle at my go to bottle shop. A trusted IPA friend said that this wasn't the typical west coast IPA from Coronado, but more similar to the lighter hopped, strong sweet malt style I love from Florida and the east coast. I definitely appreciate him telling me to buy this. The only bad thing about this beer is the appearance. The color is a nice orange, but even after several vigorous pours, I got extremely little head; and zero lacing. Th smell is of bright orange, slightly boozier than I'd like, quite floral (hibiscus/orange blossom), and a tinge of hop bitterness. Taste follows aroma, but less boozy. Mouthfeel is light and hoppy but not light in a watery kind of way. Really enjoyable brew; probably my favorite from Coronado so far!
