COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after Coronado Island, our original India Pale Ale is a liquid expression of hometown pride. Cascade, Chinook, and Columbus hops combine to provide an explosive burst of piney bitterness and lucioius notes of apricot, grapefruit, and mango that are sure to envoke imagery of swinging palms and sun-kissed shores.

little disappointed with this one, had all my favourite hops, cascade, chinook and columbus but didn’t quite do it for me, still good though

Still yet another 12 oz. bottle purchased at The Beer Store, Nashua NH. Clear amber / orange color, some light head. Aroma is mild tropical fruit and sweet malt.

This could be a victim of sitting to long or taking too long in transit. Another example of why IPA’s should be draft only for me unless it is local. Silly me… Mild tropical fruit, weak citrus with a large amount of sweet bread and caramel. Not much hop punch. Thinner body, standard Co2. If I ever see this on draft I will re-rate it. My impression is it feels like it is a shell of its former self.

Tasted at Willow Park Beer Bash 2014. Unfortunately, there was no time for detailed notes - and I only made it through half my list even so!

MSBrindbergs (450) - Solna, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2014
Fat på Flying Scotsman Inn. Klar gyllene vätska med vitt skum. Doftar barskt av kåda och övermogen frukt. Den kraftiga beskan dominerar, men sötman finns där. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mjs (4869) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2014
(Bottle, 0.355 l, at Pikkulintu, 20141103) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium size and white. Aroma had mango, peach and citricness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, mango, peach, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A tasty but too sweet brew.

Clear brilliant golden under a tight foamy white head. Bitter rustic lupuliny aroma with a nice bitter floral tone and nutty sweet undertone. Big bitter leafy lupuliny start with some grapefruity zest and bitterness, with a light touch of dank MJ.

On tap at the brewpub. It poured a golden yellow color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, hop, pine and malts. The taste was of grapefruit, mango, orange, apricot, pine, biscuit, honey and malt. Decent.

umich03jm (2221) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Tap at Pete’s Place. Hazy gold pour with a medium head that fades quickly to thin film and a ring. Leaves great lacing too. Aroma is very piney with some tropical fruit too. Tastes moderately bitter. Mostly pine hops but some grapefruit and tropical fruit show up in the finish.. Medium body. Good IPA.

Cunningham (4996) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
Nice hazy golden color with a fine white head. Good lacing. Fruity, citrus and toffee. A bit over to the sweet side with an ok bitterness. Quite fresh flavor with citrus, tropical fruity and toffee.
[On tap at 3 Små Rum in Gothenburg, Sweden]
