I very much enjoyed this beer. Lots of fugginí hops in the nose with hints of dried pineapple and some olí hints of straw. FUggin. For a double IPA it was very well-balanced, a high hop profile that gives plenty of bitter and fruity notes. Undertones of dried citrus, honey and bready tones were very pleasant and filling. Iím almost ashamed that Iíve avoided this brew for so long.

a one-two punch of whole cascades and then whole cascades -again. whole-leaf hops have a distinctively different aroma than pellet hops, and i enjoyed that aspect of this beer, but my complaint is in the manner itís delivered. coronado seems to me, from many offerings iíve tried, to get out the checklist of what is required in a style, and then smack you in the face with it -no subtlety, no enticement - just bamm! this beer screams "you want cascades... hereís your damn cascades!"

Hazy amber beer. Frothy white head. Rich hoppy nose. Very slightly soft palate. Deep rich orange marmalade and grapefruit hops well joined up with a little creamy malt and aniseedy alcohol. Easy drinking rich IPA.

Bottle. Amber orange crystal clear with tan head. Citrus upfront aroma. Awesome bitterness. Lingers in the mouth for a while. I swear it turned cloudy after awhile.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A clear golden colored beer, with a off white head. The aroma of hops, fruits like citrus with malt, flowery. The taste of nice hop bitter with fresh fruits. The aftertaste is nice bitter with some sweet.

Only dissed the aroma because it was a bit misleading with its agressive hops. Love the big West Coast hoppiness. Super piney and citrus immediatley, astringent as hell in the most beautiful way.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2014 Light brown, big rocky white head. Hugeo hop profile, fresh and piney. Very American. Smooth palate, quite sweet with sharp hop tones. Not balanced at all but it still works. Tasty brew. (Sample from 75cl bottle, thanks Menno!)
Re-rate. Golden light misty body, stable head. Heavy hops, sharp citric and resin. Alcoholic, bitter, bit simplistic though. Drinks okay, not quite needs the abv, could get an ipa with as much satisfaction without the alcohol. (On tap at Blind Tiger)

on tap @ Urban Solace. Golden straw filled the glass with a small fluffy white head. Strong aroma includes pineapple and orange peel. Initial flavor is caramel maltiness, however, then the hops kick in. Well-balanced hops grab the palateís attention without wrecking. Very enjoyable IPA with impessive aroma not quite matched in flavor.
