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.

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2010
12 oz bottle - Pours a clear golden color with a pretty foamy, thick white head. Great lacing and good retention. Aroma is all fresh grapefruit hoppiness with light caramel and pine notes. Taste is a plenty of citrus and piney hops with some floral notes. Bitter finish with a slight flowery after-taste.

bubbleflubber (2114) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Pours orange, slightly hazed, into the glass with a retentive cap and chunky lace. The nose is of oranges, caramel and alcohol. Flavors are similar, with some grapefruit, slight caramel sweetness and grassy pine lingering hops (with a touch of alcohol) to finish. The body is round, with a substantive palate. A very good IPA!

Suttree (5768) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 30, 2010
Cloudy orange, nice dense white head. First whiff is a little bit of brown sugar or caramel, then a wave of citrusy, grapefruity hops - I need an air freshenner that smells like this, actually. Flavor is most hops - nice mix of grapefruit and pine. Decent bit of sweetness in the background, too. Enjoyable beer.

J_man (861) - Tustin, California, USA - SEP 29, 2010
Bomber from Albertson’s in San Diego. A nice whiff of hops coming off this orangy gold IPA with a billowing white head. Dry, black pepper and pine hop bitterness grips the tongue and is balanced out with a nice toasty malt background. Leaves a lasting bitter taste with some grassy, herbal notes. Nice West Coast IPA.

TURDFERGUSON (4028) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 15, 2010
Bottle from the local. Very clean nose at first when cold where you can hardly smell anything but what appears to be a very clean hop profile. A little bit of glue and mild diacetyl round out the nose. Flavor is a bit green finishing with a nice bitterness. Diacetyl lingers and doesnt help the underdeveloped flavor.

Bottle. Pours orange with a thin off white head. The flavor has floral hops and a crystal malty sweetness. The flavor has sweet malts, iced tea, and floral hops. Decent.
