22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of citrusy and tropical fruits, some nail polish remover and caramel malts. Flavour of tropical fruits, paint thinner / nail polish remover, citrus, and caramel malts. Finishes with notes of orange, grapefruit, sweetness and bitterness. Solid IIPA.

Pours light copper color with an off white head. Aroma of grapefruit and citrus. Flavor of toffee, and caramel in front and citrusy hops in the middle and end. Also a lot of tangerine undertone. Well balanced.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2013 Coronado Brewing Co. beginning to pop up here in the Cincinnati, OH area - poured from 22oz bombs away! Damn! Is this good? Is.this.good?!? You bet your ass this is good! This IPA boast a hop assault that is almost offensive to the senses, but the hop combo is tempered with a perfect culmination of hop and malt. I have actually eaten at this somewhat exclusive place "near" San Diego, but did not try their brew at the time (it was lunch, it was many years ago, I had no idea their beer was this good!). Overall excellence in brewing achieved. Re-rate: Not nearly as impressed with the second time around. Why? Who knows...This is still a nice "tropical" ipa.

Mmmmmm. Prime example of a West Coast IPA. Beautiful piney and citrus hop nose with a touch of Belgian funk. Slick and creamy palate that is dangerously drinkable. A nice balance of bitterness and sweetness with a somewhat short finish. I really wish we could get this in Coastal Georgia.

pet3rman (310) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Pours Opaque amber with a nice white head. Very little lacing. Aroma is complex- Part IPA, Part Belgium to be honest. Flavor is pleasant, but doesn’t match the aroma. Nice finish. Solid IPA

meerbier (1473) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2012
Bottle@Home. I really love the strong aroma: tangerine, grapefruit. Golden/amber, off-white head, good lace. Sweetish, fruity, light bitter start to very bitter in the finish, grapefruit. Very dry in the finish as well. Powerful and nice.

Sampled in a big bottle. A really aromatic imperial IPA. that was really smooth on the tongue. The mix of hops was very well done.
