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.

tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Pour is a slightly hazy straw/orange color with a fluffy off white head. Lots of piney hops up front on the nose, a bit of tropical fruit notes, citrus, and a nice kind of bready malt character. Lots of citrus on the taste, some piney hops and tropical fruit, and a hint of alcohol. Medium-light boried, well balanced but not as flavorful as Iíd expect from a 7% west coast IPA.

Sigmund (5328) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2014
355 ml bottle, from Fakta Hirtshals. ABV is 7.0%. BB date 30.05.2014. Clear golden colour, moderate white head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits and stale jam / marmalade. Fairly refreshing flavour, citrus and hints of spruce tips, hints of stale jam in the finish. Not bad, but probably better when fresh.

35.5cl bottle at Thirsty, Singapore. Poured into a short glass. Slightly cloudy with a small head. Deep amber in colour. Sweet malt and hoppy aroma. Full flavoured. Nice bitter fruit taste, lots of hops, some caramel. Medium carbonation and body.

FatPhil (9646) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 24, 2014
Tap (Black Door, Helsinki)
Absurdly sweet caramelly toffee and tinned fruits in syrup aroma. Some mashy stodgy malt aromas too, less good. Taste has less stodge, but is still very sweet, caramelly, and tinned syruppy fruits. Fairly bland, no depth. Pleasant bitterness in the finish. Malts, hops, sugars, meh. Did cover the 7% quite well, but thatís because itís hidden in the sugars which are not subtle.

Andrus86 (59) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2014
BOTTLE. Cloudy orange with thin white head, Sweet caramel on the nose. Malt up front which turns into a mix of caramel & sticky toffee. Pretty light on the body side but still excellent. Sourced Fire Station Busselton

Bulk_Carrier (2281) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - DEC 5, 2014
No date, but this was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy to slight transparent yellow color. There was a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about less than a minute. A film of sticky lacing clings nicely to the glass. The smell calls upon a nice sweet to bitter spice but yet allows a decent sweet malt to balance. Light citrus intertwines. The taste was sweet but bitter and balanced between the two. Light sweet citrus aftertaste with a sticky finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionable quality about it. Overall, I dig it, though no date, I could definitely have again, Iím assuming this is somewhat fresh.

355 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori.
Pours clear golden color with a large head. Crisp and fruity aroma, some pine, resin and sweet hops too. Mandarin on the flavor, resinous hops, gooseberries and caramel. Oily slick palate, bitter finish. Refreshing and tasty.

Bottle from a friend. A nice, bright IPA. Deducted points from appearance because it looks the same as any mega-beer.Good aroma of pine and citrus. Taste was refreshing but a little muddy.
