Bottle; Pour is dark copper - the head is basically white in color and it has an average retention in this tulip. Floral bouquet of hops is present, but this brew has a heavy caramel malt feel, as well. The caramel malt character is slightly heavier on the nose , than on the tastebuds. Anyway - Thank you to the guy at wallys for the recommendation.

Tap at Papago Scottsdale AZ. Bright gold and clear. Nose is piney, resiny hops. Taste is a bit perfumy, lots of hops and no malt presence at all. Thinnish body and one dimensional.

Strong floral, citrus, piney hops give this full bodied IPA a well rounded flavor. The bitterness is complex and backed up by malts. Alcohol is present but not overbearing. When I first laid eyes on a bottle I thought "Idiot IPA" is a gimmicky name. That may very well be, but this is an excellent 2XIPA!

WTF! surprise pint at Toronado! Recommended by one of the devine regulars this very very hoppy american IPA holds a punch that wonít be forgotten fast. Hefty steely hop power horse! Like!

Rockcrawler (197) - Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Pours a clear orange golden with decent size white head. Aroma of Citrus, grapefruit, resinous, and slight caramel. Taste comes on very bitter and very sweet with a superb balance alcohol is well hidden. Palate is thick and syrupy and hop oily. Finish is clean with a none over powering lingering bitter.

Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Nice big citrus and malt on the nose. Smooth citrus comes through nicely. Long slow grapefruit finish. Slight touch of booze on the end. Really tasty.

dionysus (1449) - Arizona, USA - JAN 20, 2011
Bottle pours orange with a white head. Aroma shows notes of sweaty hops, orange peel, toffee, and some subtle floral notes. Flavor shows additional notes of peach and grass. Overall body is moderate, somewhat sticky, and finishes with heavy bitterness.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 19, 2011
bottle at home (19Jan11)pours gold with a tall frothy white head, laces well. Aroma is huge pineapple and citrus, like a tropical fruit cup. Really nice. Flavor is mildly sweet with dried tropical fruit flavors quickly turning dry with loads of pine and extremely bitter grass notes. Some faint booze in the finish, but it doesnít hurt or help. I like it.

StormCoat (106) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Tasted a bomber bottle. Pours an amber color with a very slight haze and a white head. Has a nice, resinous, piny hop aroma. Taste is citrusy at first, with a quickly developing herbal hop flavor and a bitterness that grows and lingers in the aftertaste. Body is on the average side, flirting with being too thin, I think. Overall, this is probably my favorite offering from Coronado Brewing...I think itís a decent take on an IPA, and would definitely drink it again, but itís a bit run-of-the-mill, and has an almost one-dimensional bitterness. Good, but could be more interesting.
