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.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2011
On tap at Churchkey. Served in a snifter. Color is a moderate orange with a two-finger white head as well as a pretty good amount of lacing. The nose brings some citrus hops as well as some slight notes of tropical fruit. The hops are bit mild and light, but overall are done quite nicely. The taste draws back and seems really muted. There are still some notes of tropical fruit as well as some orange and citrus; however, there’s no real malt and the beer ends up falling a bit flat without anything to stand on. Low-ish levels of carbonation on a fairly-light body make this a somewhat-sessionable brew. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-18-2010

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2011
Draft. Poured a slightly hazed, golden, orange color with a large white head. Moderately malty nose, bright hop notes of citrus, peach, and pine. Medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Slightly sweet, notes of grapefruit, toffee, and light resin. Finishes with an herbal note and moderate bitterness. Good.

Good "sweet" IPA. The Idiot is much nicer and I’d rather spend my money elsewhere as it can get pretty expensive here in SC for these guys.

Pours too light and cloudy for my taste. The aroma is overwhelmingly hoppy piney and citrusy with a hint of malt- not enough sweetness for me. Not a balanced taste for me- all flowers and grapefruit. In my opinion, plenty of better offerings from this region. Sidebar- would not describe color as copper in any way- as stated by the commercial description above. Just average for me.

nick76 (4314) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2011
The aroma is very hoppy with pine and citrus hops as well as a bit of sweet malt. The appearance is slightly cloudy yellow with a small head, right for the style. The taste is astringent and not balanced in any way. The palate is average. Overall I can’t enjoy it.

shigaleale (20) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 11, 2011
Aroma - fresh hops, citrus, bit of mandarin and fresh hops. grass Appearance - white head, and clear golden colour Taste - gives me impression of chewing the hop flower, or drinking hop water. I prefer tasting bit more malt flavour in the beer.. Palate - medium bodied, bitterness lingers

PorterPounder (6223) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a murky light orange with a very slight head. Aroma is sweet in a funky kind of way. Hints of maple syrup and homebrew funkiness. Flavor is slightly muddled with some faint fruitiness, dried apricots come to mind, some nuttiness, and a bit of that over caramelized homebrew-like funkiness. Mouthfeel is sticky. Needs work.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 6, 2011
Draft at 1702. Pours clear yellow-gold, medium white head, passable lacing. Nose is VILE!!! Hop confusion reigns supreme, along with misplaced estery sweetness: Yeast, banana, apple, leafy hops.... Flavours of rancid cupcakes and grassy cabbage. Awful.

socaltay (204) - Ventura, California, USA - MAR 3, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2011 Aroma is this beers strength. It smells of hops and more hops. It reminds me of when I am making my home-brew and opening up the bags of hops. It smells exactly like that. The appearance is a golden color. The taste is not great, it seems over hopped without much to balance it. I enjoy beers that are very hoppy the most, however; this beer needs a malt backbone to help balance it.

Gold pour. White head. Aroma of apple butter and hops. Flavor is awful. Apples sauteed in butter. Puke.
