3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle--purchased this at the same place and time as Coronado IPA and really can’t tell the difference, so here’s the repeat. hazy amber color with a good size, white head. Large aroma of hops, straw and pine. Solid hops and pine lead the taste, toss in some citrus at the end and you have the taste down pat. Sticky and syrupy finish. The Mansion.
Great stuff, both of the beers.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark gold/orange with a small retentive head.
Smells predominately of citrus with a little grapefruit pith and some tropical fruits as well.
Taste actually starts out a bit malty, but rounds into a very piney bitterness that lingers along with a good dry finish.
Mouthfeel is somewhat medium, but still a very hop forward beer.
This was one of my favorite beers on tap on the Cali trip, but out of the bottle it loses a bit of its luster. The pine dominates the citrus a bit too much. The smell was fantastic, but the taste was just above average for the style.
