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.

SamTheBarrel (379) - Vallentuna, - NOV 14, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 355 ml brown bottle, poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Appearance is cloudy golden with a medium sized beige head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine and orange peels. Taste of grapefruit, lemon and orange peels, a hint of caramel. Light sweetness with a moderate bitterness. Medium-light body, slick texture, average carbonation. A juicy IPA with relatively low bitterness, pleasant and easy to drink.

Nice tropical fruit smell. Small head and nice light golden color. Good piney citrus taste without much bitterness or malt, but didn't like the aftertaste. Good but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MunBro (249) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
Good IPA but lacking the smooth citrus blast of a great one. Nice balance and dry hopping but the hop flavors aren’t the star of the show which was a disappointment for me.

jrodooo5 (940) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 12, 2014
It has the look & aroma but the taste just falls flat for me. The aroma has an awesome blend of hops the doesn’t quite shine through in the taste. It leaves your palate kind of bland & is a little thin. Decent beer but somewhat disappointing.

This ’tropical’ IPA was all pineapple to me...and I love pineapple. Bring on the Hula girls!

TheBeerGod (5174) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle. Orange-amber with a short, foamy white head. Lots of pine and citrus in the nose along with floral hops, caramel and malt. Taste is pine, citrus, tropical fruit, apricot, caramel and soft malt notes. Body is medium-full and resinous with a strong, frothy carbonation. Ends with more tropical fruit, citrus notes, pine, hop resins, caramel and toasted malt.

PhilJackson80 (298) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 24, 2014
12 oz bottle. Tasted on 6/24/14. Beer from Total Wine Tampa, FL. The aroma has more of a floral note more east coast than west coast with very little fruitiness. The beer isn't too sweet but has a strong malt backbone with a dry finish. More of an English style ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jabic (405) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Ar: Big pineapple and mango - some orange juice, a little lemon and pine. Ap: Pale orange with a medium off-white head - clear - moderate retention, leaves a bit of foam on glass sides, a ring of suds, and a thin, almost complete cover. T: Pineapple and bitter tea leaf - lemon and orange - some clean malt, very little sweetness - high bitterness with a soft edge - finish is pine and lemon. P: Medium-light body with high carbonation - finish is dry. O: Pretty good IPA - the bitter tea leaf quality is the only downside - otherwise, lots of great tropical fruit, citrus, and pine flavors and a supporting, but not obscuring, malt backbone.

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique 120513. Bright orange colour with a decent white head and big punchy floral hop aromas. Great taste and easy drinking.
