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.

BMan1113VR (7813) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 23, 2008
On tap. Pours with a large fluffy white head with a clear golden body. Great lacing and good retention. Aroma is all fresh grapefruit hoppiness with light caramel notes. Taste is a ton of hops with caramel toastiness and cereal. Bitter finish. Water like mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Some alcohol as well.

Lagunitasfan (1313) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 7, 2008
22 oz. bottle. Orange amber color with no head. It barely even left an oilslick. Bitter hopbomb on the nose, but NOT the thick piny sweetness you sometimes get. Alcohol and Yeast. Flavor is fresh and yeasty. More sweetness in flavor than the nose hinted. Messy sticky on the class. Good beer.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 3, 2008
Sampled at Big Pour Mesa, AZ. Unexpected. This was a great beer on tap, honestly a favorite of the event. Very aggressive, more IIPA than single, with juicy grapefruit, ripe oranges, lemon zest, and every other sticky type of citrus available. Vibrant gold with hints of fire engine red rippling through it. Floral hops and biting pine...wow!!!

ChazMania (650) - Pasadena, California, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Bomber. Dark yellow to orange color, thin head. Big citrus aroma with some very nicely balanced hop flavors containing mandarin orange and grapefruit. Has a sweeter finish than other SD IPA from what I can tell. Very good tasting beer.

Thick glowing amber with a solid white head and some moderate lacing. Smell is nice and floral and spring-like. Flavor is hoppy with a great little citris bite and a following yummy sweetness. Nice and smooth mouthfeel. Would surely have again!

Pours a mild hazed amber color with a medium lived light beige head. Smell is fruity, piney, and hoppy, and not over the top. Some nice fruity malt character too. Taste is crisply bitter with nice pine and citrus hop flavors. Good maltiness to balance but still plenty hoppy. Full bodied with nice refreshing carbonation. Awesome drinkability and a fantastic, underrated IPA, I thought.

bhensonb (10688) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 1, 2008
Bottle from South Bay Drug. Darkish gold color witha nice off-white head. Fresh floral and fruit aromas. Medium body with mild, near creamy, carbonation. Flavor is very floral with some citrus fruit, and it is a bit astringent. The hop is strong and persistent, but not burningly bitter. Until some time passes. The hop is really fresh, really tasty and really builds up bitter. A much better than average IPA. And Joey ships fresh stuff.

Draft at Main Tap. NIce citrus and grassy aromas. Flavor was similar, but not quite as nice. Still some grass, but less fruit. Not horrible.
