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.

Habanero (3084) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2013
Bottled. Pours hazy, deep golden with a medium sized, off-white head, that leaves a good lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and other citrus fruits, mango, caramel notes and pine. Slightly sweet flavor that ends dry and solid bitter. Medium bodied oily texture and soft carb. An enjoyable West Coast IPA.

maekchu (2607) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle from Yamaichi. Good, deep piney hop nose. Hazy straw color with a thick two-finger head. Very hoppy initial. Then moves on to a balance of grapefruit and a lighter topical fruit. Medium body. Very tasty. Hop-heavy stuff, to be sure. Good flavor changes from initial to mid palate. Final kind of hits bottom with a thud. Mld hop trace in finish. Not as over the top as many CA IPAs.

tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Pour is a slightly hazy straw/orange color with a fluffy off white head. Lots of piney hops up front on the nose, a bit of tropical fruit notes, citrus, and a nice kind of bready malt character. Lots of citrus on the taste, some piney hops and tropical fruit, and a hint of alcohol. Medium-light boried, well balanced but not as flavorful as I’d expect from a 7% west coast IPA.

spittle8 (126) - California, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Strong hoppy aroma, Unremarkable, fairly clear amber with a healthy, light head. Light on the palate, the alcohol isn’t very noticeable for a 7%er, but gives the drink good warmth. Very piney hoppiness. A good IPA, not a great depth of character however, a one-trick pony that does its job well as an IPA, isn’t an ’extreme’ IPA and is very drinkable. Solid beer.

Brenhophead (639) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2013
355mL bottle. Pours light golden with a small soapy head and a light apricot like aroma. Heavy bitterness with resinous piney hop flavour. Average.

SlovakSniper (3709) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
Une bière dorée, voilée et couverte d’une mousse densifiée. Un nez tout à fait stimulant avec ses effluves de pamplemousse, son bouquet d’aiguilles de pin et ses parfums d’herbes bien vertes et fraîches. Une base maltée qu’on souhaite oublier tellement ce tourbillon houblonné me semble des plus efficaces. Sur les papilles, un retour de l’extrême vivacité des herbes et des agrumes qui sont touchées par des saveurs d’abricots biens sentis et des morceaux de mangues encore bien fermes. Encore une fois, un coussin de céréales pâles qui ne font rien pour entraver le travail des cultivars. En bouche, un corps bien vivant, léger, efficace et légèrement huileux qui me semble être construit pour promouvoir le concept de la buvabilité. Un palais tout simplement fantastique. En finale, que des choses fraîches et remplies d’une amertume tropicale et forestière qui s’étend pour des siècles et des siècles. Je soupçonne une très jeune bouteille et/ou l’effet des maillots à la brésilienne sur cette plage de Sunny Isles.

coreyc1221 (275) - Truckee, California, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Hoppy aroma! Clear golden color and white popping head. Bit tang and hay taste at first then a grassy aftertaste. Kinda metallic feel to it. Regardless, this has a great taste and and awesome feel.

burgy (455) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Starts off with lots of nice aromatics. Super light hops, specifically pine and resin. Appearance is super blonde. Taste is a little watery but has nice fruit notes. Palate is thin. Overall, very pleasant tasting IPA!

skoisirius (1823) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAY 22, 2013
I love it when you open up a bottle of an IPA and just get blasted with that sweet mango fruity malty blast of piney goodness. That totally happened a moment ago when I popped this. A bit wet overall on the malt side (could maybe use a bit more hopping), but a good run-of-the-mill regular IPA.

Bottle. Pours a crystal, deep golden color with a decent, lacing white head. Strong, hoppy aroma with some grapefruit in the background. Hoppy bite with a nice, light finish. Some tart as well.
