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.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2009 Bottle picked up next to the brewery. Pours a translucent gold with just a hint of orange. Cream colored bubbly head and a nice flow of bubbles from the bottom. Aroma of pine and citrus, and a touch of funky sweat. Very clean and refreshing, and virtually no sweetness, then a very sharp bitter. This is actually a bit harsh and almost like a DIPA. This bitterness actually lingers a bit longer than I’d hope for the style and I feel like just half this bomber has killed my palate.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - AUG 7, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2013 Very good IPA. Lots of citus and pine on the nose. Light malt and heavy on the hops. Could taste them for a while after. RERATE. This, when fresh, is a pungent, hopfest. Top stuff. Drinks like a DIPA at only (?!) 7%.

Very citrusy, and bitter. Nose is of citrus. Some sweet malts in the background, but Western hops dominate this one. Pretty tasty though, and the alcohol is well-hidden. Not as bitter as you’d expect given that all you can taste are hops...

Crystal clear golden color with a fluffy white head. Citrus, fresh fruit, grapefruit, light pine, and some malts. Flavor is of itense citrus/grapefruit hops. Light fruits, pine, and some malt thrown in for good fun. Bitter, but not palate killingly so. Mighty fine.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JUL 24, 2009
Bomber. Appears golden-orange with a creamy vanilla head. Aroma is distinctly grapefruit, citrus and a light malt profile. Flavor is upfront very citrus hoppy, clean and orange. Finishes with a bit of bitterness, though not as bitter as one would expect. Palate is slightly oily, and soft. Overall, a solid IPA with nice west coast hops. Simple, if anything.

Hazy blond color with rather small head. The aroma is hoppy, pungent, with some citrusy fruits, manure. The body is lean, the mouthfeel is rather dry, it has dry toffee flavor, strong but balanced bitterness, with plenty of resins, pungent character, some bitter oranges.
Fresh and very well brewed.

2009-06-12, blind tasting at Papsø’s
Hazy deep blond color; big creamy head. Good fruity, Simcoe aroma, some sweat, medicinal. Toffee flavor, the strong hopping brings it on the dry side; quite resiny and fruity, bitter orange peel, digestive. Strong, powerful, long final. An excellent hop bomb.

theisti (3259) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUL 1, 2009
22 oz bottle purchased at Chris’ Liquors in San Diego, California. Pour is slight hazed golden with a nice full formed white head. Aroma of resin pine and some grainy maltiness. Orange peel bitterness. Taste is big and fresh resin hops, with the citrus orange peel and a nice layer of toasty malt holding it up. Hop is pretty dank. Palate is medium, with a long straw bitter finish. Quite drinkable, nice one.
