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.

650ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that has decent retention and settles to leave some very nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit with some hints of pine and caramel. Taste is a bold grapefruit bitterness with some fruity and malty sweetness. Medium bodied with some generous carbonation giving rise to a marvelous sensation on the palate. This one is moving near the top of my IPA list. Definitely recommended.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle from Lizardville Rocky River. Looks like I’m in the minority on this, but this just isn’t my favorite take on the style. Maybe the bottle is too old or something, but the hops seem tired, and a cardboardy caramel is taking over. Not awful by any stretch, but I was expecting better than this based on the ratings.

patricks110 (2392) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 17, 2013
A solid IPA with big bitterness. I would say that this perfectly summarizes a lighter Idiot IPA. Bright copper coloured body, foamy white head that leaves a few bands of lacing. The nose is floral with big citrus notes and mild piney resins. A mild sweet and caramelly with a mild floral hop and juicy grapefruit notes. A heavy bitterness on the finish with a lingering astringency. Overall, quite nice and well balanced for a big IPA.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark golden color with a rather small head. Nose has some amazing elements of citrus and floral elements. Taste has some bitterness to it, but not overly so. It feels light and crisp. Good taste.
