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.

nimbleprop (5212) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 2, 2009
On cask at Friday the Firkenteenth at the Grey Lodge Pub. Transparent orange, gold with a lacing white head. Nice floral aroma, pine too. Flavor is very solid. Exactly what you expect from a West Coast IPA: grapefruit, pine, flowers, candy, caramel. Bitter but clean finish. Very drinkable and nice on cask.

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2009
Blast of hops when I opened the bomber. Nothing special in appearance. Very strong afterbite. Citrus-hoppy-pine aroma. More than an average IPA. Darned good one. Happy to see this one available in Green Bay, WI.

Slightly sweet hoppiness in aroma and a golden color with some amber. Tamed hop flavor with some earthy accents. This IPA is smooth on the palate, delicious.

Poured a medium copper with a very tiny white head. Nose is floral with a little bit of pine resin. Taste is pretty decent, fairly big sweet malt backbone for a san diego IPA. caramel, good amount of hop bitterness, spicy and floral hops, hints of pine and citrus flavor.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2009
In short: A full body, crisp and refreshing fruity IPA. Great stuff.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed fresh soon after purchase on the west-coast. Tasting session with Montreal crew
The look: Partly cloudy orange body topped by a small white head
In long: Hoppy fruity nose of citrus and oranges. Taste has a good amount of crisp caramel with a whole lot of fruity citrusy/orangy hops. Bitterness is very sharp without being aggressive. The beers has a nourishing body but comes through as very clean and crisp. Another great West-Coast IPA. Why is it that most great very hoppy American IPA are made by West-Coast breweries? But it came to me, I think I known their secret. To make a very hoppy IPA the secret is to use a lot of hops! These guys are geniuses.
