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.

A hazy orange beer with a tiny white head. Scent is hoppy/citrus/grass. Taste is hops and citrus with a dry bitter finish.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Serving: Draft at Magnolias.
It pours a light amber color with a small, foamy, white head. Spotty lacing gets left behind. The nose is very hoppy as one would expect. Lots of tropical notes with pineapple, peach, and slight herbals. Some pale malt sweetness as well. The taste is refreshingly bitter with a good bit of resin and those tropical notes. In the background the malt adds body but not much balancing to the hops. A bit of soap emerges as the beer warms. Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a slightly dry, bitter finish. This one could use a hint more malt to balance out the bitterness, but overall it is a very solid IPA.

bottle. A subtle version of a bad ass IPA. Ouch? No, it’s still a damn good rep. but I keep getting an odd, off, metallic pop on my tongue. There’s citrus & hints of pine so it hit my IPA spot, kudos wtfever, but this beer isn’t $13 a sixer. Ehh.

hopsandvines (61) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 20, 2010
New to NC, just got it in stock at Hops & Vines in Ashevelle, was looking forward to this one after all the hype. Pours gold, with a small head. Aroma was a little disappointing, light citrus and floral hops but not in a pronounced way an IPA should be. Flavor is fruity and spicy with some mango notes, starts off full bodied but has a thinnish end. Bitterness is sharp, assertive and vegetal. This is a decent IPA but for $12.99/6 pack there are other options at $9-10 that are just as good in my opinion.

This poured a semi clear golden yellow color with a white head. Aroma was lots of fruity citrusy hops and not much else. Flavor was bright but not too bold citrusy hops. No alcohol detected at all, very refreshing IPA, and overall a very good beer.

A very well-done IPA! This beer is deliciously balanced and extremely flavorful. It all starts with a beautiful dark golden pour with a sticky off-white head. The aroma is filled with hops, earth, grapefruit and pine. The body is very smooth and dangerously drinkable. Hops are, of course, at the forefront of this IPA, but are balanced well with a flavorful malty backbone. Some hints of dry grapefruit, spicy hop resin, light earth, pine and rye bread are present as well. The finish features a nice combination of hops and malt, with a crisp and dry mouthfeel.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2010
Enjoyed on tap in an English pint glass. The beer pours a medium amber color, with a moderately sized and fairly dense white head. Grapefruit and tropical notes in the nose, giving the indication that perhaps New Zealand hops were put into service. The palate is a good bit less bitter than one would expect, or that would be appropriate, for the style. Some resiny hop flavor comes through, along with an underlying note of residual malt sweetness. Carbonation is just slightly low, for the style. The finish carries with it subtle ester-derived fruity notes. Overall, a nicely done example of the style.

Fantastic, murky copper, amazing aroma.... lacy orange tinged the citrus, floral aroma is intoxicating.... citrus/grapefruit just amazing. Thick wonderfully balanced great hops, great malt balance. Tastes like a DIPA, behaves like a session IPA. Awesome.
