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.

Bottle - Golden orange, slightly hazy, no head. Moderate hoppy aroma, not as prominent as many IPAs. Taste is good and crisp, but slightly lacking. Decent but nothing special.

From a bottle. Lots of smooth malt flavour up front and a balanced hop profile, dericous.

McDef85 (40) - ITALY - SEP 27, 2016
Bella schiuma spumosa e vaporosa. Delicata a tutti i livelli: a naso e in bocca, senza dissonanze fastidiose. Aroma resinoso, evidenti i luppoli, dolcezza fruttata in bocca. Amaro che un po’ si nasconde per poi riapparire.

DenverLogan (1098) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2016
From a bottle to a 2016 New Belgium stem glass. Pours gold with head and lace. Aroma of grassy hops, grains and malt. Flavors of rich malts, caramel malt, minerals, pine, grapefruit zest, honey, straw hops. Overall rich and flavorful for a robust IPA lover.

KeefOz (1537) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2016
Poured a hazy golden colour with a one- to two-finger white foamy head that retained very well but laced poorly with a few spots. Carbonation moderate, soft and fine. Aroma all quite subtle with hints of stone fruit, citrus (grapefruit, orange) and malt. Taste with subtle sweetness, moderate malt (becomes more malty as warms), moderate pine, moderate grapefruit - all flavours are of similar and only of moderate intensity; moderate bitterness with, for an IPA, a low hops bite; alcohol well hidden. Light to medium body. Crisp, slightly dry and with a slightly fizzy mouthfeel with a slight to moderate grapefruit bitterness on the finish. Easy to drink as it more of a pale ale than a typical hops-driven IPA.

joeneugs (5756) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 3, 2016
Bottle. It pours a golden orange color with a tall, frothy white head. Good staying power and lacing. The aroma is candied orange and grapefruit. Hints of flowers and honey. The flavor has some robust pine, orange and honey along with a good amount of toasted and caramel malt. Strong floral bitterness. The crystal and heavy bitterness kept me from enjoying this more.

Dorwart (2535) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2016
Medium sized off-white head of varying sized bubbles and minimal carbonation. Grassy aroma with some corn, mild spicys saaz hops, smarties and mild malts. Color is a dark gold. A bit flat and lifeless in the mouth. More straw and grassy overtones with some dry, chalky grains, a bit of grapefruit pith and pine. Light alcohol presence and warming. Lingering dry and grainy bitterness. An ok IPA.

A very nice IPA. Tried with Rene at De Molen in 2016. Light and crisp but with a solid bready sweet base. Lots of citrus grapefruit, a bit of peach.
