COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with 8 different hops and dry hopped with whole cone Cascades. Its more powerful than our Islander IPA and even the most intelligent have become "idiot" after a few pints of this super hopped up beer!

StormCoat (110) - 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.

KapitiCritique (345) - Xincheng, Henan Province, CHINA - JAN 7, 2011
Bottle at Hashigo Zake Big monster ice cream float head, fluffy, serious sea foam lacing, golden clear yellow-brown colour; -- nuts and toffee aroma, very rich;-- sweet-ish, bitter-ish, sour-ish; -- full bodied, a bit creamy and thick, good but not overbearing carbonation, slightly astringent and bitter finish; -- Really substantial, lots of flavour and big nose

Vas (64) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 7, 2011
On tap @ Hashigo Zake. Huge hop aroma swirling with different aroma. Taste was a massive hit of hop flavour, citrus, floral, spicy with malt and alcohol thankfully showing through. Chewy and resiny in the mouth. A good IPA for the end of the evening but beware your taste buds will be annihilated by this brew so donít resort to it early on.

malrubius (1858) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 17, 2010
22 ounce from Tops Tempe, packed in luggage and flown home. Dark orange with ring. Fruity hops graham crackers and pine aroma. Biscuits raw honey fruity orange syrup with bitter piny lingering hop finish and some alcohol. Mouth punishing lingering pine tar. Thick body. Tastes and feels stronger than it is, which is a problem IMHO.

oOJUXEOo (300) - Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Bottle. Very nice floral and citrus aroma. Small head, decent carbonation. Taste is fairly balanced between malts and citrus hops. Nice beer, definitely a bit sharper than the Islander.

This is indeed a beer for idiots. An unimaginative brew, very bitter but one dimensional. Boring.

blklab2007 (2015) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 10, 2010
bottle poured a bright orange amber in color with a covering of white head. aroma has sweetness, pine resins, light citrus, and a bit of alcohol. mouth feel is medium with low end carbonation. flavor picks up bitterness, pines, caramel sweetness, and some citrus. perhaps not the freshest bottle but the flavors are still nice.

piscator34 (1996) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 5, 2010
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Dark gold in colour with medium carbonation and quite a few floaties. Fantastic fresh hop aroma with elements of white grapefruit, cut grass, meyer lemon, gooseberry, and pine. Still pleanty hoppy and citrus-like in the mouth, but with an added clean pale malt component. Firm bitterness, and the malts are slightly chewier than expected. Very drinkable for the alcohol content. Very nice.

puggy211 (711) - cordova, Tennessee, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Huge thick creamy head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Hazy golden color. Aroma of grapefruit, apricot, floral, grass, caramel, grain. Over the palate came almost herbal, grapefruit, sweet fruit mix. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and dry texture. Moderated sweet and bitter flavor. Lingering dry bitter finish.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 26, 2010
22 oz bottle. Clear light amber gold with a khaki colored, creamy dense head. Fruity aroma of citrus and tropical fruit with some sugary caramel and flowers. Sweet caramel malt flavors with a medium hop bitterness, alcohol is well hidden. Medium body with average carbonation and a smooth, sweet mouth feel. Great IPAx2, bit on the sweet side for me but not too bad.
