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 this beer from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a semi-cloudy straw and amber color with a good-sized foamy white head with average lacing and cling and low retention. It had a sour citrus and floral hops aroma with some pine notes and lighter touches of fruit, grain, and spice. Its taste had a good bitter grain and citrus blend along with some lighter fruit and sour flavors. The body of the beer had good fizz and life with above-average carbonation, and was a touch dry with an average thickness and mouthfeel.

Nice label. Poured a brownish orange with a 30 second head. Honey and orange in the nose. Sweet tropical fruits and malt upfront with a weak backbone of hops flavors and bitterness. I experienced some oxidation. Didnít care for this one.

Bottle bought at GBBF and consumed at home. Clear gold orange with lasting white head. American sweet IPA. Some orange fruit. Decent bitterness on the finish. Some oxidisation. Some resin. Yes, itís fine. The fruit is good and the bitterness is good. There are other elements like the sweetness that Iím not sure I like.

RedSox2004 (1295) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Clear copper/orange with a small off white head that left a nice solid film and terrific lace. Citrusy - mostly tangerine - aroma with a strong sense of bready malt, accompanied by hints of pine and tropical fruits. Flavor is similar, witha sharp bitterness offset nicely by the bready malt sweetness. Nice bit of black pepper adds some spiciness. Medium to full body, creamy texture, modest carbonation, and a crisp bitter finish.

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2012
A clear golden colored eer, with a small white head. The aroma of sweet fruits like citrus with orange. The taste of sweet fruits, orange /mango, with hop bitterts in the back. The aftertaste is sweet with a pleasant bitterness.

Pours deep amber into a Sam glass. Off-white conglomerate head with excellent retention recedes leaving spider lacing to an island. Caramel and earthy hop aromas. Soft with toffee and caramel upfront turning to mild resin in the hot, lasting finish.

Arayaga2 (1798) - portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Hazy yellow orange with a half inch of dense white head. Sweet grapefruit and tangerine in aroma and taste, which has a malty richness that finishes with pithy bitterness, and some minor alcohol presence.

kevinator (991) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2012
This is a really good IPA. Floral hop aroma with cider-colored appearance. It had a nice fluffy white head. The taste was a nice citrusy hop flavor with grapefruit standing out. Not very heavy but full of flavor. It had just enough malt to balance and prevent it from becoming a hop bomb. I would definitely grab this again.

I liked this one better than Idiot. It is danker and with a good juicy fruity hoppiness. Decent bitterness.
