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.

.Pale brown, fresh fully head. Fresh cut grass on the nose. In the mouth it is full and syrupy, with an immediate sharp note of grapefruit and orange. Long lingering bitter aftertaste. A nice strong IPA; almost an IIPA with such a thick body and solid structure. Quite nice, indeed.

On tap at my bar. Pours slightly golden yellow with fluffy, attractive white head. Aroma is yeasty and hoppy with mainly pine notes. Smooth mouthfeel, good carbonation. Faint sweetness behind solid hoppy bitterness. Could use a little more flavor, but an all around solid IPA.

Gold pour, small white head. Aroma of citrus and pine, flavor of pine, resin, apricot, citrus, and fruit. Sticky finish, medium body,. Delicious.

mcberko (7813) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
On tap at Stateside Craft, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is tangy with light citrus hops and some tartness that can’t be intentional. Flavour is along the same lines, with tart floral hops, lavender and other odd ones - rather perfumey. Something seems wrong with this.

arminjewell (7036) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Pour on tap at Avant, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, grapefruit, caramel and toffee come through into a hint of grass, pine with a touch of earthy spice. Taste is a mix of earth, spice, grass into pine, touch of orange, grapefruit, hints of caramel, finishing bitter.

Medium to thin body. Slick to oily mouth feel. Medium to soft carbonation. Grapefruit and lemon flavour. Malt and some caramel. Peach, tropical fruits, hint of pine and resin. Refreshing. Could be a bit thicker.

Great West Coast IPA with a touch of citrus and pine. Drinks super easy because it is just very well balanced and yet hop-forward. You’ll get it when you drink it. Cheers!

Draft: Poured clear golden with white head. Aroma alot of floral notes with nice undertones of citrus. Nice light malt allows the nice blast of hops on the pallet. Easy drinking!

A nice and smooth IPA, quite hoppy and fruity. Mango and tropical fruits quite present on the nose. Good balance in the bitterness. Simple yet efficient. I though preferred their Idiot IPA, but still very nice!
