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.

madvike (3201) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Bottle - Pours lightly hazy amber with a big foamy off-white head. Nose is pine resin, herbal hops, lightly spicy with a sweet malty backbone. Taste is real dry and astringent, with herbal/spicy hopping and some butterscotch. Smooth in the mouth, but the carbonation bites a bit.

timjbaer (24) - pahrump, Nevada, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Pours golden yellow with a short lived white head if super fine bubbles. Aroma of juniper and hops. Nice hoppy flavor with notes if grapefruit. Nice bitter IPA with a long lasting residual taste to remind you what it taste like for at least 5 minutes. Think ill have a few more to be sure.

LeftCoastRider (110) - , Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Dark gold very light head that dissipated quickly. Very aromatic. Aroma of evergreen, but not spruce; more like redwood. Very different from other IPAs. Good fizz, but light body. Hoppy, taste is more like a standard IPA than the aroma is. Nice beer.

dfearnley (1805) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle to flute Grapefruit, pine, tropical fruit, raisin. Clear reddish amber with a large white head that settles quickly to a thin creamy head and lots if lacing. The taste is piney and fruity with a nice hoppy kick.

jcr (2554) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Draft. Cloudy golden body with a frothy, white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of citrus hops, orange, grapefruit, toasted grain with a hint of finger nail polish. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Aroma is a lot more complex than the flavor whose grapefruit bitterness overshadows other tastes. But at least it’s not a resin bomb.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle. NIce amber with rich white foam. Moderate fruity aroma. Complex hop flavour profile; fruit, medicinal, minty, pineapple, citrus. Light malt balances but lets the hops play. Seems to be a lot of different hops and a bubblegum note.
