Named after Coronado Island, our original India Pale Ale is a liquid expression of hometown pride. Centennial, Chinook and Columbus hops combine to provide an explosive burst of piney bitterness and luscious notes of apricot, grapefruit and mango that are sure to evoke imagery of swaying palms and sun-kissed shores.

The flavor is sweet spicy - especially coriander, combined with strong notes of grapefruit. I find the body a bit on the thin side.

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.
