3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 12oz. A finger-thick off-white head forms over a lightly hazy golden body. Oranges, citrus peel, pine cones and some generic tropical fruits in the aroma. Some maltyness. The flavor is maybe a bit sweet, but there’s enough bitterness to deal with it. Pale malts, pine cones, orange peel and some canned tropical fruits in the flavor. Full body, with a pleasant carbonation level. Long, bitter and fruity finish. Dangerously easy drinkable this one, and tasteful too. 130809

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a very nice gold color, foamy white head, thick lacing.
Citrus zest, pine, some pineapple, a slight musk, and some fresh bread with a zing of orange.
Lots of hops, nice strong bitter pine finish, a little on the drier side, and a nice balance of malt to bring everything together.
A lot of bitterness for most, but this is an Imperial.
Excellent west coast style IPA, very true to the style, Coronado doesnt get enough notice, their IPA’s are solid.
