Bottle. Light to mooderate malt notes of light bread and roasted, moderate pine resin and orange, light soap for the yeast, with hints of pepper and dried fruit. Head is small to average, frothy, slightly off-white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy light amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium, oily to creamy, with a lively carbonation and a lightly alcoholic finish. This is an excellent DIPA with perfect body and texture, and a nice unique bite to it.

Pours a rusty orange with an off white head and sweet aroma of hops and fruit. Taste is bitter sweet, of hops, fruits, and sweet malt with a big bitter finish, as the fruits really come through in the taste.

Pours a reddish golden color with a small head. Nose is hippity hop, with plenty of citrus with pineapple predominating. Taste is nice and bitter, with pine and citrus and finishes on a sweet note. The finish is quite pleasant and pleasing . Very nice DIPA ....Quaff Score 8 / 10... very well balanced !

On tap at the Brew pub. Pours a hazy orange color with a decent lacing white head. Huge grapefruit aroma with a nice sense of hops. It just springs from that mirky beer. Very light and crisp for an imperial, but the ending has a big hops flavor. Dry finish and enjoyable.

Love this beer. Pours a beautiful orangey amber in the body with a thick finger of super dense creamy head. The nose is pine laced resin with big gushing fruits, freshly squeezed grapefruit and a bit of pungent alcohol. Sweet resinous flavour in the middle with a burst of fruits and relentless bitterness well into the aftertaste. Heavy astringency with a big burst of floral hop flavor. Overall, a very nice Imperial IPA.

IPAsavedMYlife (345) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Nose is pine, berry, juicy fruit, some orange peel and honey. Very sweet malt. Head is about average, didnít sick around for long. Color is a hazy orange golden color. Mouthfeel is a bit slick, but full. Bold hop flavor, borderline acidic. Definitely beyond what I enjoy. Basemalt is pleasant, but a little too sweet for my tastes. You can really taste the IBUís in this one. Aftertaste is harsh, and long lasting. A bit loose compared to SNís Hoptimum. Enjoyable nonetheless Enjoyability 4/5.

Intense citrus aroma that is dominated by grapefruit. Hops are dominate on the palate. A wonderful balance of hop flavor, bitterness and tad of malt character way behind. A good example of a west coast IIPA! Well done Coronado. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Eructoblaster (3246) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2012
Bottle - 341ml. Beautiful golden/orange body with a good off-white foamy/creamy head. Nice, well balanced hoppy aroma with malty and fruity hints. Its sharp hoppy taste ends with a long bitter finish. Excellent example of DIPA.
