Deep orange with an amber hue. It took a few sips to acclimate my palate to the size of this brew. Concentrated aromas and flavors of orange citrus, sweet grapefruit, peach, tropical fruit and pine, with layers of honeyed florals. Full bodied, with a fairly big malt backbone. Solid bitterness. Lingering finish. Definitely a palate wrecker. Overall, a big West Coast DIPA in every way.. which possibly edges on a triple IPA. I think a lot if DIPA fans will enjoy this. Solid for size and fitting for an Anniversary Ale. Another solid seasonal from Coronado.

Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Poured a golden blonde liquid with thin topping of foam head. The aroma screams juicy green hops that have light citrus properties while also having a floral smell of pollen/flowers. The drink is mild with bitter hops and a rounded out malt profile. Nice anniversary ale. I saw this and the new Stone 17th anniversary on the shelf and I chose the Coronado 17 over the Stone 17. Shag (3040) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2013
This poured a dark golden color with a white head. The aroma contains some perfume, peach, mango, and oranges. The flavor is well balanced with some bitterness showing but a good malt presence. The finish is bittersweet. Overall very different and refreshing. jbruner (5124) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Pours a golden brown from the bottle with dissipating head that leaves might lace. Aroma is strong hops, piney and funky floral notes. Taste follows, with a strong malty backbone. Solid dipa, bit nothing mind blowing. DedicatedToFun (4000) - Santa Monica, California, USA - SEP 19, 2013

Fruity aroma which is the best feature of this ale. Light gold color with a thin head. mild lacing in the glass. The first sip brings a burst of citrus and floral hopiness up front with well hidden booziness. Carbonation is average to lively and it finishes smooth with a slight maltiness left behind. Easy drinking and a above average IIPA ABUSEDGOAT (2833) - California, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Clear amber orange, moderate head, some lace/retention. Aroma is fruity with notes of grapefruit, tropical fruit (mango), citrus, lesser caramel notes. Medium to full bodied, moderate bitterness, moderate sweetness, alcohol hidden well, very drinkable. Good take on the style. mjg74 (3157) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Bomber from BevMo. Light amber in color. Minimal foam. Sweet fragrant nose . Quite fruity. Some tropical notes, pineapple is noticeable. Highly hopped up front. Moves into a touch of sweet fruitiness. Finish is more traditional citrus bitterness. Alcohol is very well hidden. Solid ale. stevencon (522) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Thanks rbrazell. Clear orange with white head. Sweet aroma candy hop aroma. Taste is similar warming booze taste. Solid beer but I’m not a fan. rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle from Proof. Clear amber pour with a small bubbly white head. Melon, pineapple, peach, lots of tropical fruit in the aroma with hints of sweet caramel and toast maltiness. Resiny, smooth body with tropical fruity hop flavor and a mild bready malt background. Easy drinker for the alcohol and not too much of a bitter finish. Pretty nice.
