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.

On tap at Papago. Pours a nice straw color with a trim whte head and steady carbonation. Smells and tastes primarily of dried apricot and bitter hops. Sweet and crisp with a note of flour on the mid-palate. Highly drinkable.

Cunningham (4629) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
Nice hazy golden color with a fine white head. Good lacing. Fruity, citrus and toffee. A bit over to the sweet side with an ok bitterness. Quite fresh flavor with citrus, tropical fruity and toffee.
[On tap at 3 Små Rum in Gothenburg, Sweden]

Coloração amarelo escuro, espuma branca de baixa persistência média densidade. No aroma notas de malte e frutas doces como manga e grapefruit. O sabor segue a mesma linha, mas com algum frescor. Médio amargor, médio corpo, alta bebabilidade. IPA muito boa para quem procura lúpulos americanos e aromas e sabores vivos e frescos.

Grapefruit hints and bitterness take this beer out of generic-IPA status. Well-crafted. Hoppy palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RABinCO (1365) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Fresh bottle into a glass. Pours light gold, nice, slight fluffy white head. Aroma of fresh cut grass, orange zest, and a slight bit of pine. Taste is lightly bitter, a bit juicy, orange, pine needle, light cereal malt balance. Lasting crisp, resiny pine finish. Really pretty good.

In a world where everyone is trying to make the next quadruple IPA this is welcome change that reminds me more of the first generation of IPAs and has a slight bite at the beginning and then mellows to refreshing and slightly sweet aftertaste.

This gold beer has a pineapple and mango peach aroma. It has a strong hop flavor. Lots of bite that mellows to a sweet flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
