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.

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

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

DuffMan (6555) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 15, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2012 On tap @ the brewpub on Coronado Island. Hazy orange with a dense yellowish head. Very potent citrus oil and resin aroma. Chewy malts balance the big fruity bitterness of the generous hops. Very nice.

BMan1113VR (7834) - 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 (652) - 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.
