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.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Bottle from Smithís. Pours dark straw with 1F OWH. Nose is resiny hops, tropical, caramel malt. Tastes very resiny, hoppy, with a solid malt balance, a crisp finish, and a gigantic IBu value. Very, very good.

TomDecapolis (4482) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAR 9, 2010
Tap at TJs. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a medium bubbly:creamy off white head that laced. Aroma of tropical fruits, mixed citrus and piney hops. Some caramel and bready malt in aroma and flavor. Hop bitterness is aggressive and flavor is lending to floral and piney hops.

This was a very good IPA, it was a nice surprise. Strong bitter hops flavor yet very well balanced with a really good mouthfeel. My first offering from Coronado and I liked it.

JW32Hoops (70) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 15, 2010
22oz poured into a red solo cup. Brought this to Kate Sessions Park in Pacific Beach with one of my favorite Stone pint glasses......and then promptly broke that glass and was forced to drink this one from the plastic cup, so some of the apprearance part Iím inferring. Nose is floral, fruity, hoppy...can tell this one is going to be refreshing and delicious right from the start. Pours a golden amber with a thick (for an IPA) off-white head. Hits the palate with a subtle kick of hops and citrus. This one is summer through and through. Maybe Iím rating it a bit high because I drank it on a 75 degree day, outdoors on a mountain, overlooking all of Americaís Finest City (including Coronado) but it worked, the whole scene fit perfectly and this IPA played itís part like Denzel Washington.

brokensail (10955) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 15, 2010
A: A golden yellow-orange color with a substantial white foam. S: Pleasant citrus aromas, pineapple, caramel malts. T: Primarily citrus hops, hop bitterness, and nice malt sweetness. Nothing really "wow" about it, but solid. M: Good level of carbonation, and medium bodied. D: Itís definitely drinkable, but as I said, itís not an amazing beer. There are a lot better IPAs from the area.
