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.

Bottled. Hazy goldeny orange colour with a mediumsized white head that vanishes quite quickly. Aroma is spruce, some citrusy and floral hops as well as some slight caramelly notes. Flavour is fruity, floral and caramelly in a very nice balance. Nice crisp hoppy bite in the finish, but not overdoing the hops.

Hazy blond color with rather small head. The aroma is hoppy, pungent, with some citrusy fruits, manure. The body is lean, the mouthfeel is rather dry, it has dry toffee flavor, strong but balanced bitterness, with plenty of resins, pungent character, some bitter oranges.
Fresh and very well brewed.

Hazy deep blond color; big creamy head. Good fruity, Simcoe aroma, some sweat, medicinal. Toffee flavor, the strong hopping brings it on the dry side; quite resiny and fruity, bitter orange peel, digestive. Strong, powerful, long final. An excellent hop bomb.
