4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold, with a large white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. The aroma is a blend of fruity, tropical hops and dry, spicy Belgian yeast, with cinnamon notes prominent. Potent grapefruit and kiwifruit hops up front move seamlessly into sweetly spicy cinnamon yeast in the body. Mild berry notes mix with the spiciness of the yeast in the finish. The whole of this beer is very much greater than the sum of its parts. Neither the hops nor the Belgian elements of this beer are particularly groundbreaking, but it is the effortless way that they blend and the perfect balance between them that really make this beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
February 2nd, 2014 - Coronado’s fusion style Hoppy Daze is an engaging brew, coming out of their "Crown Series" which in my limited experience goes above and beyond the regular line-up to fold in more dynamic and interesting flavors. To the eye, Hoppy Daze has all the markings of an IPA, a chilled frosty gold color clouding the glass, and less than a finger of styrofoam colored head atop. Banana and cream comprise the aroma, pushing less clove than I’d expect from the Belgian yeast treatment, and switching in more white grape juice, though just a touch as an accent. The palate, given the style, is thick and heavy, with an appreciable dose of alcohol. It’s good company for the occasion of a Super Bowl Halftime Show, bold enough to cut through lackluster live performances and keep my attention. As I veer away from the television I catch more banana and graham cracker sweetness, and even a dash of cookie spiciness. Likely a product of the yeast, but distinct from the clove, it’s proportional to the other flavors and delicious. Better this than football, I think, and so I retreat to a quieter corner to enjoy the rest of this without the plastic clacking of footballs and stressed cartilage.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 22 oz. bottle.
Clear, golden straw color with a yellowish-white head and very good lacing.
Aroma of flower nectar, grapefruit, pine, tropical fruit, yeast and pale malt.
Taste of grapefruit, tropical fruit, sweet malt, pine and coriander.
Full/medium body and medium/low carbonization with a smooth mouthfeel.
This beer has a strong Belgian tripel character, yet with heavy West Coast-style hopping. It is surprisingly sweet, but with ample hop bittering for balance. It's unusual, but quite good.

Big hop single IPA. Earthy and maple like hop aroma, excellent and different at same time. Malt is slightly sweet but hops balance it out very nicely. Great carbonation to bring out hop aroma.

I am not sure why this scored out so low. The aroma was strong, fresh, and floral. Color was wonderfully light Amber. Taste was fruity, yet a bit bitter. Loved this beer and very drinkable.

Pours a lighter golden brown. earth,funky smell with piney under notes. Taste is not hoppy enough to compliment the underlying fruit. Overall ok beer, but have come to expect better from coronado
