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.

BlackHaddock (3485) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
12oz Bottle underneath the flight deck at the stern of USS Medway on 18th March 2014. Cloudy old golden colour with a thin white head, it was poured into a plastic beaker though, so the head didn’t really stand a chance. The nose leads with grapefruit notes followed by a mild bread/biscuit maltiness. The taste reverses those smells with the malts just about winning the flavour stakes in the initial stages before the citrus flavours take over completely giving a dry and semi-bitter finish.

hopsythe (46) - - APR 21, 2014
Bottle shop got some Freshies so I had to try. Pours a clear golden yellow with white head. Not much to the aroma. Very crisp and clean going in but leaves a huge pineapple orange bitterness that lingers for awhile. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

halfonit (1151) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - APR 6, 2014
On tap at Battleship. Pours golden. Very nice citrus nose--clean and fresh with lots of grapefruit and tropical fruits. Medium bodied. Sweet flavor with hops, mango, passionfruit, grapefruit and malts. Only mildly bitter at first, then it kicks in a bit more later. Very drinkable with a nice hop to malt balance.
