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.

Juicy IPA - loved it. Pours medium amber with slight haze, contrasting off-white head that retains well. Nose is ripe with grapefruit, light pine, and orange wedges. On the palate there’s a biscuity sweet malt that dances well with the balancing hops that are somewhat metallic, grapefruity, and pleasantly sharp. Finish is sharp and hoppy, in a very good way. This is one juicy IPA!

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 27, 2009
On tap at Papago. Pours a nice straw color with a trim whte head and steady carbonation. Smells and tastes primarily of dried apricot and bitter hops. Sweet and crisp with a note of flour on the mid-palate. Highly drinkable.

A- Pours a clear orange/amber hue with a BIG creamy, white head that is mostly sustaining, excellent lacing throughout, tiny bubbles S- Nose is a mix of pine resin, earthiness, citrus, and some sweet malts T- Nice west coast IPA, initial taste is mostly dry bitter hops followed by some very faint citrus and sweet malts, finish is brief and acidic M- Medium-bodied, coats the tongue, carbonation feels a tad high D- Hmmm, a very interesting take on IPA style whose flavor is dominated by hops and is slightly unbalanced, this isn’t too detrimental but keeps this choice out of the top tier for West Coast IPAs, fairly drinkable at 7%abv due to a well-masked alcohol presence

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2014 Re-rate 1/14: Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks zvikar. Clear golden. Aroma of stale hops, a bit citric. Flavor has a bit of sweetish malt, stale hops, a bit citric, and mild bitterness. Medium-bodied. Too old, not calculated in score. 5/3/6/3/11=2.8

(11/5/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Coronado. 7.2%. Clear amber color. aroma of floral hops, citrus and caramel hints. Bitter hoppy flavor with some malt, caramel notes, grapefruit and fruit notes. Medium-bodied. 7/3/7/3/14=3.4

shakespeare33 (197) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 17, 2009
pours a very mild amber orange. smells of citrus hops.. initial hit to the palate is that of a centennial hops that dont overstay their welcome.crisp, to the point and medium bodied for an IPA, but very solid
