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.

12oz bottle from lizardville unsure of freshness but the pour is a nice light copper and smell is piney and nice the taste is pretty resinous and dank. Not a bad finish nice and easy going

Bottle. Erupted from the bottle, but quickly settled. The beer is light yellow-ish amber with a frothy head. The aroma is clearly defined by the hops, but has an odd character -- somehow medicinal, in a children’s elixir kinda way. That sticks with me as I drink -- the hoppiness coming across in a less than idyllic manner, a mixture of over-ripe banana, pineapple, and wet grass. (#4422, 12/29/2011)

12oz bottle pours a murky golden/orange with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet and tart citrus, candy, malt, and slight pine. Taste is of resinous bitter pine, citurs, and tropical fruits, with a balanced malt presence. Alcohol is covered very well, nice!

alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Kinda tan to orange and slightly hazy, two finger head and ok lace. Very piney and grapefruit-ey on the nose. Taste follows, with a massive grapefruit presence, tons of pine and sweet fruity, floral hops. Body is medium, rich and smooth, with a lightly sweet, bitter aftertaste.

Bottle, mybrewerytap.com. Great caramel aroma kicks off a very full-bodied and fine American IPA. Big mouthfeel, with resinous pine and tangy orange combining nicely. Packed with flavours, lively on the tongue, the faintest hint of smoke in a big bitter aftertaste. A belter.

On tap at Mad Mex. Lightly hazed amber with an off-white head leaving lacy sheeting. Nose is orange, toffee and some grass. Medium light with a tingle; resiny on the backside. Taste is orange peel, pine and caramel. A solid, tasty IPA.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 9, 2011
12oz bottle from Peace Street Market, Raleigh. It’d been a while since I’d tried this, certainly since before Coronado started distributing to NC, and I was pleasantly surprised at what a solid, sessionable IPA this is. Lustrous orange pour with a medium creamy head. Nose is very fragrant with floral notes, bubblegum, and a hint of bitter pine in the finish. Mouthfeel fairly full and smooth. Flavors are more bitter than the nose, though the sweet fruits are there, with bright tangerine and mango notes. Damn solid brew.

BucannonXC5 (990) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Poured from a draft into a pint glass at High Dive in San Diego, Calif. Color was light golden pale. Maybe ¾ inches of head. Light lacing on the top. Film on the sides was light and sporadic. Smelled of sweet floral notes up front. Also some lemon citrus in there. Caramel says, “What’s up?” too. Sweet citrus up front in the taste, mainly lemon. Bitter comes in there right away, too, though. Lots of floral notes. Bitter ending. Medium body. Average carbonation. Bitter finish. Not a bad beer overall. I thought about giving the smell at 4.5, but I kept it at 4.0. I would definitely give it anothergo.

Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of caramel malts and citrus and pine hops. Flavor is the same with a decent bitter finish from the citrus and pine hops. Slight warming as well.

Bottle from Kris Wines, London. Clear amber pour with a nice white head. Lovely fragrant/citrus hop nose qualities continued on into the taste, which had some balancing sweet malt and superb hop bitterness/tropical fruit notes. Excellent stuff. Could quite contentedly sup this til the bleedin’ cows come home....
