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.

On tap. Pour is fairly clear copper with a modest fine bubbled off white head in this glass. The nose is tropical fruit, caramel, and biscuits really. The flavor profile has a nice balance of malt and hop profile. The tropical notes come through heavier here, with more caramel and bread. Fruit esters come through. Juicy hop resins are present, but its all a bit subdued.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2014 Bottle @ home, courtesy of OCBeerSociety. Thanks Ron! Dark golden, orange appearance with a big white head and nice lacing. Big citrus fruity (mango, passionfruit, grapefruit), smarties, a bit organic, a touch resiny hoppy aroma. Big grapefruit creamy, mango/passionfruit, citrusy flavor, a bit organic, fairly bitter hoppy, yet deliciously sweet IPA. This babyís a winner. (4.3)

Bottle from Wilburís that was distributed here during GABF. Pretty tasty but nowhere on the same level as I thought last time. (3.8)

Thisis12ptfont (863) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Floral hops accompanied by some grassy/earthy aromas. Relatively deep golden in color with a very thin foam on the top. Taste is a good blend between fruitiness and earthy hops. Very lightly carbonated with a lingering spicey bitterness. Overall, this is a solid IPA. Good hop flavoring with light grapefruit undertones. Iíd give this an A rating.

I didnít love this one...too heavy in the body for me. Has a good bitter piney hop nose and body but it drinks very heavy and the finish holds too much. Not dry or crisp enough for what I like in an IPA.

Tycho52 (65) - California, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Poured from a 22 oz. bottle. Comes out of the bottle with a clear orangey color and a nice white head that quickly dissipates, but leaves some nice lacing. It has the aroma of hops, but I donít taste them on the front end. There is a taste of grapefruit at first, subsequently joined by hoppiness and a lengthy backflavor.

12oz bottle. Aroma of floral and citrusy hops with a little caramel and light fruit. Flavor the same with a lot of hops. Average texture. A pretty good IPA.
