You know what's funny? After I wrote that paragraph above about the violent wind we're having here, I read the story on the back of the bottle. Apparently this beer is named for a serene Coronado shoreline. LOL. The rest of the story sets your expectations. 7.9% alcohol. 48 IBU. The brewery would also like you to send your pictures to @CoronadoBrewing and/or #StingrayIPA
Beautiful tropical peach and tangerine aroma. Tropical fruity peach and tangerine yum to start. Piney bitterness and some spicy sharp nips tantalize the palate immediately afterward. There is a see-saw of sweet and bitter, a competition between the sweet gentle fruit and the hoppy spicy citrus. And I love that!
Great beer, but the mermaid never showed! Oh well. Her hair on the bottle, however, endured today's breeze.
Update 7/29/2016: Stingray is now available in cans. Same awesome tropical orange and honey sweetness meets spicy hoppy bitterness and is now beach ready! Below are a few pictures. Mermaid still playing hard to get!
