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.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2011
draft @ redlight redlight. Piney hops on the nose, resinous and spicy. Pours golden blonde with dense white head. Bitter pine notes with earthy bitterness, hop forward ipa, mild fruity notes in the finish with sticky hop flavor lingering. Excellent.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2011
Bottle. Hazy, burnt orange with a medium white head. Fruity hops dominate the nose. Tons of rich fruit flavors, some orange, grapefruit, and a tough of bitter orange peel. Finishes warm and boozy, a bit of tangerine? Lingers too long, but otherwise an amazingly good IPA.

At the brewery. Great hop bitterness balanced with a wonderful malt backbone. Some awesome grapefruit flavors and wonderful finish.

Taster at the brewpub. Orange c hop aroma. Lots of bubble gum amarillo hops in the flavor. Nice body. slight caramel malt with a grapefruit bitter finish. Runs the gamut of some of my favorite hop flavors.

KyotoLefty (6185) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 17, 2010
Draught at Tadgís. Very nice citrus nose--clean and fresh with lots of grapefruit and tropical fruits. Soft, fluffy mouth. Sweet flavor with mango, passionfruit, grapefruit. Only mildly bitter at first, then it kicks in a bit more later. Very drinkable with great aroma but too thick and syrupy so it becomes boring.

I was pleasantly surprised with this beer. Having had it several times over the past few years, Iíve noticed a big improvement recently. It pours a bright golden orange with a thick head with excellent retention. The floral and citrus hop aromas are inviting and lead to a clean citrus hop bitterness thatís nicely balanced by a soft malt character. This beer finishes crisp and dry, much like any good IPA from San Diego.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Draft. Amber orange pour, small white head. Crisp floral and citrus hop aroma. Tastes lightly sweet and caramelly but isnít heavy on malts. Thereís a sharp hit of floral and citurs hops with a touch of spice and a cedary resin finish. Paired great with pizza.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Bottled. Poured slightly hazy medium golden with a short, dense cap of whitish head. The aroma picked up fresh, bright pine and peppery notes over a nondescript pale base.. warmth brought out juicy, exotic citrus fruits.. not bad. The flavor found pale and biscuity malts at the core.. very sharp and bitter around with notes of pine, peppery alcohol, and oxidation.. spicy and nearly unpleasant on the finish. Medium-bodied and sharp on the palate.. I didnít like how this came together.

marcus (6364) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Pours orange copper with a foamy off-white head and a toffee aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with serious piny hop bitterness. A good IPA.

Bottle. A descent IPA. Not very complex in the flavors. Its mostly resinous, but definitely not the worst IPA I have had. Sorry I don;t have more thorough notes... Iíve become a bit lazy these days. CHEERS!
