Marine Dream IPA by Coronado Brewing Co. is being evaluated as an American IPA (Category 21A) from the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines.

Marine Dream IPA is brewed as a New England style, or hazy, IPA, and pours as expected; light gold with an orange hue and quite hazy. The aroma is big, juicy and fruity, with fresh, bright pineapple, mango and hints of guava. A touch of orange candy emerges as the tropical hop character settles down, along with a light bready and nutty maltiness that provides balance and interest. The hop flavor shifts a little more toward citrus, with orange zest being most prominent, but it's backed up with a pleasant hit of pineapple. The hops in the flavor are not quite as bright. The hop bitterness is assertive but smooth, appearing mid-palate and lingering through to the dry finish. The orange zest rolls right on past into the aftertaste. The oats provide a slight nutty character to the flavor and aroma, as well as a pleasant fullness to the mouthfeel.

This is a well-brewed New England-style IPA that has a fresh and bright tropical hop aroma that throws a slight curve ball, turning citrus in the flavor. The juicy hop character and hazy appearance are well done, and the hop bitterness stays smooth throughout. A very enjoyable brew for the upcoming summer months
