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 nice brew for me, lots of hops, but some malt to settle the flavor abit. Hops do dominate though, some citrus, easy drinking, enjoyable.

From a 22oz Bottle. Pours a mostly transparent, canteloupe tinged golden yellow with a thin layer of white head tha quickly reduces to a wispy film. Aroma is fresh and brimming with grassy, floral hops. A little bit of malt sweetness comes through in the nose, and although weak, doesn’t present any harsh or problematic characters. Not really citrusy or piney, but still west coasty in its hop presence, if that makes any sense at all. Light to medium bodied mouthfeel with a full, shimmering carbonation across the tongue. Starts out with a solid pale malt body thats highlighted by some lemon zest and a light cascade herbalness. Smooth and light with a clean refreshing hop character. Gets a little bit grainy toward the back end, which is really the only glaring weak point. Fresh, light, easy drinking, non-overly hopped IPA.

hapjydeuce (945) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 22, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2008 Pours hazy gold with a minimal off-white head, with good lacing and plenty of carbonation. Hoppy and citric aroma, but not much sweetness. Some wet hay and malty, buttery diacetyl notes. Nice, standard flavor of a dry hopped West Coast IPA. Finishes with prominent bitterness, with a slightly grainy character. Pretty good, but give me the Idiot IPA over this anyday.

Bartzilla (534) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 20, 2007
Your pretty standard IPA, and can easily be qualified as a "go to" ale since it’s hit all the shops around here. Bitter, but not overdone and slightly sweet. Makes for a solid nightcap.

Hazy orange colour with a small off white head. Malty, caramel sweet aroma with hints of flower and yeast. Pine bitter flavor with floral notes and vague hints of a buttery sweetness.
