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.

Ungstrup (29367) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2010 Bottled. A hazy orange beer with a thin orange head. The aroma is sweet and super hoppy combined with notes of grapefruit - the aroma a bit cloying. The flavor is sweet spicy - especially coriander, combined with strong notes of grapefruit. I find the body a bit on the thin side.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - MAR 9, 2007
22 oz bomber pours a clear pumpkin orange body with a two finger offwhite head. Good retention with island chain lacing. Aroma is all hops-grapefruit, pine, and cut grass. Medium body and carbonation with a hops bite. Taste is dry and bitter, very hoppy. No hint of sweetness or malt presence. Nicely drinkable and a solid westcoast IPA, but a bit bitter for my preference.

From a bottle, poured a copper hazy brown. Nice lacing and this beer was a bit dry but a good grapefruit taste. Nice hops.

waolsen (1358) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2007
bottle. hazy copper with thick off white head. malty aroma with weak citrus and earthy hops. citrus is very strange in this beer and it trumps the caramel malts and piney hops. not so good.

Tmoney99 (10712) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2007
Draft sample at CBC. Poured a copper color with an average white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Good hoppy citrus aroma. Medium body. Moderate hoppy citrus flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of average duration. Good brew.

hopdog (8952) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2008 22oz bottle acquired in trade with awaisanen (thanks!). Poured a medium and cloudy orangish color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of pine, some citrus and all around fruity. Tastes of some citrus, very light pine, and had that same fruitiness to it. Lightly bitter. 7 3 6 4 13 Retasted on 9/20. I liked this one a lot better the 2nd time around. Real nice hops and nicely bitter.

22oz. bottle. Golden orange color with a small white head. Mild pine and fruit-sweet hop aromatics. Heavy citrus metallic Cascade hop flavor dominates the flavor. Biscuity and buttery malt profile peers through an astringent resin. Lots of residual coarse bitterness in the finish, with a ruddy, slightly earthen aftertaste. Mouthfeel is a light medium, rather dry.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 1, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2007 Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours a dark golden/brownish color. Aroma is of citric hoppiness with a bit of acidity and slight sweetness. A strong citric hoppiness up front with a hint of breadiness. Quite sweet as well. Not a great IPA, but it does have a decent amount of bitterness to hold my attention.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar: Clear gold color with a small white head. Aroma is cotton candy sweet and fruity. Flavor is sugary and grassy with a little citrus and a light dry finish with hints of grapefruit rind. Medium bodied and tangy with moderate carbonation. 6/3/6/3/13

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Inviting tangerine nose draws me in, promising quite a hop kick. Promising more than it can deliver, as it turns out. Flavors are initially citrus and pine hoppiness, but very quickly fading, unsupported as they are by a nearly complete lack of a substantial malt bottom. Fading flavors and tepid mouthfeel leave a prominent dishwater-like residue in their wake.
