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.

rougeau13 (2902) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Hazy orange-amber with a frothy off-white head. Light lacing. Aroma of pale malts, light citrus, bread, and caramel. Tastes like raisins and pale malts with moderate bitterness. Medium bodied and dry. Not bad.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Appearance: Deep ruby and garnet under a pithy copper-hued blanket that sticks vigorously to the sides of my glass, eventually fading into a tight bubbly blanket.
Nose: Rich, robust, sticky, and parching. Pine sap and hop resins, grapefruit oils and orange oils. Crunchy caramelization and pine trees in the back. Mint leaf. Freshly mown green grass sticky and damp with dew.
Palate: Bracing! Tastebud tingling! Pine needles, Christmas trees, white and yellow grapefruit peel oozing oils and sticky essence. Sour grapefruit and key lime candies. Sticky hop resins and pine oils. Finish is pretty fast, lingering with just a hint of mint in my breath.
Final Thoughts: Deliciously unapologetic and oozing IBUs and hops in all their bitter deliciousness. A fantastic ode to the west coast from Coronado Brewing.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Draft at Proof. Amber pour with a fluffy white head. Super fruity hop aroma, mango, apricot and pineapples all over it with touches a caramel malt. Smooth slightly sweet caramel malt palate with lengthy bitterness and more tropical fruit throughout. Pretty good stuff.

Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2013
22 oz bomber. Aromas of pine and citrus with the alcohol showing through a little bit. Good balance and complexity and flavors of tropical fruit with a hoppy finish brings this beer together.

Tranquillity (2221) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2013
Draft at the tasting room. Hazy golden body, small fluffy white head. Aroma of fruits, raisins and herbs. Taste very weak for the percentage. However, its very balanced and has a silky body. Even more fruit in the taste and with a delayed bitterness that grows in the finish.

madsneergaard (75) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle. Clear orange with a white head. Aroma is very nice. Floral, mild bitterness, sweet tropical fruits. Very nice aroma. There is actually a pretty intense caramel, sugar thing going on too. Taste starts nicely bitter and slides into a more balanced sweet malty flavor. It ends with a nice lasting bitter aftertaste that stays for a while (hey, Get Your Gun). Overall, a great beer! Nicely balanced between the bitter hop profile and an interesting sweet, sugary, malt presence.
