COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It doesnt take a genius to kno w quality West Coast IPAs require a stupid amount of hops. A generous blend of Nugget hops and the four CsCascade, Centennial, Chinook and Columbusbrings forth a myriad of tropical fruit flavors and a brawny, persistent bitterness that makes for a highly intelligent brew.

yngwie (16820) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle, 12oz. A finger-thick off-white head forms over a lightly hazy golden body. Oranges, citrus peel, pine cones and some generic tropical fruits in the aroma. Some maltyness. The flavor is maybe a bit sweet, but theres enough bitterness to deal with it. Pale malts, pine cones, orange peel and some canned tropical fruits in the flavor. Full body, with a pleasant carbonation level. Long, bitter and fruity finish. Dangerously easy drinkable this one, and tasteful too. 130809

thehead92 (33) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2013
Poured a very nice gold color, foamy white head, thick lacing. Citrus zest, pine, some pineapple, a slight musk, and some fresh bread with a zing of orange. Lots of hops, nice strong bitter pine finish, a little on the drier side, and a nice balance of malt to bring everything together. A lot of bitterness for most, but this is an Imperial. Excellent west coast style IPA, very true to the style, Coronado doesnt get enough notice, their IPAs are solid.
