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.

Light caramel pour. Aroma of pine hops and tangerines, very appetizing. Excellent citrus flavor, sweet on the front with a lot of cascade hops on the back side. Well done ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from the bottle in to my Coronado glass on their coaster ;) aroma is great, floral, grassy and dank, very well rounded. Flavor is similar with a laid back malt character and bright hopiness. Burps up quite tasty with the resiny hop flavor. Palate is sticky and oily with a dry finish.

22oz bottle acquired in trade with bu11zeye (thanks!). This oneís been on my wishlist for a little while. Poured a medium and cloudy amber color with a huge sized off white head. Lots of lacing left on the glass. Aromas of pine. grapefruit, melons, caramel, and pineapples. Tastes of pine, caramel, pineapples, and grapefruits. Fruity. Nicely balanced and very enjoyable - I could drink this one every day!

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

Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Looks, smells gorgeous. Has a very dry, bitter finish. Before the finish, itís caramelly sweet, with a blooming alcohol sweet hit. Carrott notes in the middle and peppered cabbage too. Really like it. Hints at, but isnít quite (cos not strong enough), but could almost be a US Barley Wine. Although itís the wrong colour. Great carbonation.

Complex, comprehensive hop aroma from this hazy amber-orange ale - citrus, melon, floral - along with a sweet malty aroma. Balanced, satisfying, heavier mouthfeel - hop-malt synchrony - reminds me of DFH90, Widmer Nelson IIPA, Lenny's RIPA...

Über west coast IPA. Aroma is intense pure hop and solvent alcohol. Carmel taste with pronounced hop taste. Solvent after taste with some strong hints of citrus and fruit ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Like the kids say: OMG! Youíd never know this was 8.5%. Well, ok, you will know because youíll feel warm inside and the world will take on a rosy glow. Insanely drinkable. Big, fat malty pillow of goodness supporting massive hop excellence. Citrus, resin etc all the usual suspects. I canít say any more.

Hazy amber pour with a small tan head. Aroma pine and citrus, then some bitter hops. Smooth but a little thick, so you know it?s a serious brew. But it is still smooth and dangerously drinkable.
