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.

poured from bottle into the most expensive glasswear money can buy! Okay, this is a very good IPA in the "East Coast" tradition. Quite sweet, but nicely balanced. This is an easy drinker!

Hazy amber beer, tidy white head. Smooth palate with a little sting from some fine carbonation. Creamy malt base. Sweetish pale malt, prominent but dominant. Nice airy hops - pine with a little fresh orange. Mild bitterness and mild minerals. Fresh finish. Nicely joined up. Very drinkable.

Funknmilla (693) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2013
On tap...it was an excellent substitute for the 60 minute that was tapped out shortly before I arrived! Paired well with chorizo. Slightly copper & cloudy...a pungent hop aroma mixed with a pleasant malt scent. Taste is similar to aroma with an added creamy palate. Spicy hop aftertaste and good light lacing. Yum

Kroney (158) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Meh... was hoping for something as good as Coronado’s Idiot IPA, but this falls woefully short. Pours a rich orange/copper color with a quick disappearing head. No lacing. Aroma is citrus, and initially smells really good, but as it lingers it almost has a fermented/spoiled smell that carries through in the flavor. Last 6pack if Islander I’ll be buying, unless they dramatically lower the price.
