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.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2013 A very hoppy IPA, well balanced in the palate, and the lingering fruit taste is refreshing. Pours golden amber and the nose is fantastic. Tastes like it smells!

AgentAle (1076) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 29, 2015
Aroma is sweet roasty malts, clove, honey, lemongrass, and a nice earthy tone. Taste is a nice creamy sweet maltiness that is accented by caramel. Transitions quickly to a fairly deep hop profile. Mellows out very nicely with a tad of tanin on the end. Appearance is a slightly hazy gold with a medium pearl head that retains fairly well.

jamaty (1239) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 23, 2015
Ambar translucida. Bonito color. Espuma blanca no muy abundante de bastante cerco. Aroma lupulado. Rico. Pomelo. En boca tiene cierto equilibrio. Inicialmente ricamente acaramelada y luego lupulada. Obviamente la segunda parte es mucho mas intensa y duradera. Gran amargor de predominio cítrico, limón y sobre todo pomelo. Fiel al estilo del que es un buen ejemplo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a rich gold with generous off white head. Aroma is hay, floral, tropical fruit. Taste is slightly bitter but citrus and other fruit notes. Pleasant mild bitter linger. Good beer!

Svesse (6901) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2015
(Bottle) Orange amber colour, slightly hazy, with frothy white head. Malty, fruity nose with apricot marmalade, orange, bread, honey, a touch of resin, peaches and fresh floral hops. Malty, fruity taste with notes of orange peel, apricots, marmalade, grapefruit, honey, mango, bready malt and balanced citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty and well made IPA with a fresh hop character. Nice one.

XaenDovet (1222) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 25, 2015
Draught at Darby's. Pours slightly hazy copper, minimal cap but spotty lace. Aroma of passion fruit, caramel, biscuit. Taste is a great balance of sweet and bitter. Palate is moderately sticky, a bit creamy, medium carbonation, and a medium dry finish.

22 oz bottle served in a tulip. The beer pours a hazy yellow gold with a thick white head that leaves nice lacing as it recedes. Aroma is somewhat faint. Citrus, pine, and some bready malts. On to taste. Immediately I pick up pine and citrus. Lots of lemon and orange are there as well as a little bit of sweeter malty flavors. Pine comes back in the finish. Overall the beer is quenching and rather refreshing. Not much dryness in the finish, which is an interesting departure from the typical pine forward IPA. Pretty good beer.

Beaver (1457) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 18, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours clear yellow gold with a big meringue white head that retains well and leaves little lacing.

The aroma is a little subdued - sweet crystal malts with fruit and piney hops.

The flavor is sweet malts with citrus and tropical fruit and some resiny piney floral hops with good bitterness although a bit chalky. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a nice fruity resiny IPA.

I liked this, it comes with a really large amount of mango aroma, and a delightful sweetness of aroma overall. It’s quietly bitter without overdoing it and is crisp to drink with a neutral finish. I could go quite a few of this before getting bored it’s a bit good.
