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.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Draft. Amber orange pour, small white head. Crisp floral and citrus hop aroma. Tastes lightly sweet and caramelly but isnít heavy on malts. Thereís a sharp hit of floral and citurs hops with a touch of spice and a cedary resin finish. Paired great with pizza.

Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Bottled. Poured slightly hazy medium golden with a short, dense cap of whitish head. The aroma picked up fresh, bright pine and peppery notes over a nondeScript pale base.. warmth brought out juicy, exotic citrus fruits.. not bad. The flavor found pale and biscuity malts at the core.. very sharp and bitter around with notes of pine, peppery alcohol, and oxidation.. spicy and nearly unpleasant on the finish. Medium-bodied and sharp on the palate.. I didnít like how this came together.

marcus (8598) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Pours orange copper with a foamy off-white head and a toffee aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with serious piny hop bitterness. A good IPA.

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - NOV 18, 2010
Bottle. A descent IPA. Not very complex in the flavors. Its mostly resinous, but definitely not the worst IPA I have had. Sorry I don;t have more thorough notes... Iíve become a bit lazy these days. CHEERS!

Aroma of hops was nice but weak. Nice light white head. Pours a dark yellow, hazy with nice carbonation.I like the floral hoppiness, piney, estery taste. Good mouthfeel. Good bittering on the back side! A pretty good Beer!

popery (1850) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Bottle. This IPA is smooth, lightly sweet and has an interesting hop presence. The beer pours a light-medium orange-amber with a nice off-white head. The aroma is grass, marijuana, tangerines and fresh hop flowers. Mouthfeel is very smooth with a dry/bitter finish. The taste is lightly sweet. Very good beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6197) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2011 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a mildly hazy orange color with a large orange-white head that lingered and produced good lacing. The aroma was strong floral, grapefruity and perfumey hops with bitter and dry undertones. The flavor was dryish , tart and bitter with strong notes of perfume, flowers and grapefruit and had undertones of bread and nut. The finish was long, dry and perfumey. Medium body. Ok.

drpimento (2863) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 25, 2010
Poured with a nice, foamy, frothy, very light tan head that lasted a while and good lacing. Color is a clear amber with bubble trails. Aroma is major grapefruit with lots of pine and a little other fruit along with malt. Flavor is like nose with the grapefruit/pine characteristics dominating all else. Body is good and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor and fairly long. The grapefruit is not personally for me. Glad I tried it but I donít want any more.

glennmastrange (2567) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2010 Tap. Moderate malt aromas of roasted and caramel, heavy pine and flowers for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with background notes of date, pepper, dried cherry, ginger and a touch of spice. Head is small, wispy, white with a little lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling clear light amber/orange. Flavor starts, faintly sweet and moderately acidic, then extra long finish is lightly acidic and heavily bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, slick and has a lively carbonation and a very dry finish. This is a potent beer. Everything in this says IPA, great pine smell and over the top bitterness.

Slightly hazy golden big white head ok lacing... Lots of citrus, orange in the aroma.... Flavor is nearly soda like with more notes of lemon, and notes of pine... Dry finish medium bodied, very carbonated... Spritzy, a little too soday...
