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.

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Citrusy and floral hop aromatics are nearly balanced out by sugar-y cereals in this impactful IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A slice of foam covers the misty blond.
-Malts offer honeyed flavors but they aren’t too bright.
-I would like to try this closer to the brewery. I get the impression it is past its peak.
-The hop bitterness is resinous and lengthy.
-There is nothing distinct about this West Coast IPA, but it is still a highly competent example.

22 oz. bottle from Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville, NC. Hazy, yellowish-orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of light caramel malts and grapefruit rind. Nice bitter hop flavor of grapefruit and pine needles. Lingering bitterness on the tongue. A very nice IPA.

skmikeg (862) - Poway, California, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Pours a amber orange with a small off white head. Aroma is of bready malts, citrus, pine, caramel, and some tropical fruits. Taste is similar with alot of sweet caramel malts, citrus, pine, and some tropical fruits. Has a medium body with a slighty creamy mouthfeel and a dry, bitter hoppy finish. overall, a pretty good IPA.

ttutony (643) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Copper color with an off-white head. Spicy citrus hop aroma. Rich caramel malt on the palate offsets the hop bitterness. An IPA that takes a balanced approach overall.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2012
A brilliantly clear golden amber colored ale with a desent size white foamy head. Nicely carbonated too. very hop forward in aroma with a nice floral and citrus bouquet. Malts are sweet and balance out well. Taste is citrus hops, pineapple I’d say with a caramel malt bill that balances the hoppy bitterness nicely. Standard weight on the palette with a fair dose of bitterness at end. A very desent beer here from top to bottom.

Pours a cloudy brownish color. Smell is of hops, citrus. Taste is very hoppy and bitter, somewhat unbalanced. Overall a decent beer.

355 ml bottle. Thanks tiong.
Pours a dark orange amber colour with a lacy head. Aroma of sweet caramel, gooseberries and strong bitter hops. Flavour of strong bitter hops, caramel, gooseberries, hay and grass. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a rough, malty and bitter finish. Good.

tiong (3699) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2012
355ml bottle from Kris Wines, London

Pours dark orange with a smooth foamy head. Aroma of caramel malts, mild exotic fruits and notes of glue and solvent. Taste is malty and sweet with mild fruity hops and glueish notes. Finish is sweet and caramely. Perhaps this would be better from a fresh bottle.

Draft. Hazy orange bronze. Fluffy head. Runny lace. Juicy bitter citrus. Some delicate tropical notes. Fuller flavor than most IPAs. Well balanced.

Orange/Copper color. Fluffy white head. Tremendous hop aroma. A bit a sweetness comes through, along with all the hops. Very good IPA.
