3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Restrained citrus aroma in a golden amber pour. Huge hop forward taste with laid back body and sustained bitter finish. In other words - your typical West Coast APA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lustrous orange amber with some haziness and plentiful sparkle under a puffy creamy head. Aromas of oranges and resinous pine. A full bodied beer with spruce, nectarine and punchy bitterness. Juicy finishing and well likable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
hoppy citrus bitterness is apt. solid IPA. not quite a standout, but trending that way. scores seem low so far.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
September 9th, 2012 - Where Coronado’s other IPA on my sampler paddle is more of the traditional, piney and rusty hops type, the Stingray IPA is light, lithe and floral. The smell is so light, in fact, that it is nearly invisible. The short, squat glass doesn’t help, but I suspect that even if this were in a large goblet or chalice, the aroma would be dainty there too. A very light touch of hops identifies this as an IPA, but sweeter notes like honey and flowers define this brew more than the hops composition. If I were to pick (or pluck?) a flower to compare the floral notes do, I’d say it’s lavender, which comes out with a long, trailing after note.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light gold, full bodied IPA with citrusy green hops, caramel malt backbone and strength that could easily categorize Stingray as a Double IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Proof. Deep orange pour with a bubbly white head. Initial sweet malty nose with citrus and pine backing. Fruity citrus hoppy flavor with sweet honey malt backbone ending on a bitter sweet note. Not terrible.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden orange on tap with wispy off-white head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is strong resinous citrus hops and an odd fresh cut grass note. Taste is equally odd, I think the honey mixes weird with the hop profile. Not bad but definitely not something they should really do again.
