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. Pours a crystal, deep golden color with a decent, lacing white head. Strong, hoppy aroma with some grapefruit in the background. Hoppy bite with a nice, light finish. Some tart as well.

Hungover (45) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 27, 2016
Not sure i get the hype on this one. Light bodied, medium hop with a medium carbonation. Hops are pretty subdued and it doesnt have much a bite to it. All in all its pretty damn average and boring.

MadRobin (2686) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Hazy golden color with a 3-finger off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of citrus, grass, tropical fruit and pine. Taste of citrus, grass, light fruit, biscuit and pine (or is that spruce?) Medium body and medium/high carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BobyFischer (293) - FRANCE - MAY 20, 2016
Beaucoup de douceur et de fruité, un équilibre remarquable, jamais trop sèche ni amère, une explosion d’arômes et de flaveurs. Le top du top, on est pas loin de mon IPA préférée !

In comparison to the hop-heavy nature of most IPAs I’ve come across, this is a very mild, albeit delicious, beer. It almost might be hard to identify as an IPA in a taste test. It has a crisp yet round taste that gives it an almost lager-like finish. A very drinkable beer good for transitioning to IPAs or for drinking on a summer day.

Crisp and fresh citrus hop flavor. Easy to drink. Some lemon, slight orange, touch of soft grapefruit. Just enough carbonation, little malt flavor, easy to drink for 7%. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is special beer of Coronado area of California. Beer is not to much hop but nice and strong like bull. It reminds me of time in Hotel del Coronado with special girl Marketta who was love and joy for me with glorious butt cheeks that make people say "she is like Marylin Monroe when she film movie Some Like Hot in Coronado many year ago. I enjoy this beer and remember many fine times at this Hotel with Marketta as we dance on the sun deck to special boosted sounds of Louis Prima while she look fantastic in special dress and have night of much passion vigor and lust. In morning we eat full boost meal at special buffet that is simple supate - Marketta have Crepe and I have much bacon and glory. I love you Marketta.

tfontana (501) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle pour into tulip glass from One Stop Market. Aroma is tropical fruit and citrus, mild herbs/pine. Appearance is gorgeous clear golden yellow with minimal sparkle, three finger width frothy head with good retention and sudsy lacing. Taste is as aroma, pine and herbs stronger in flavor than in aroma but still fruity/citrus dominant. Alcohol hidden well. Palate is light bodied with thin texture and average to soft carbonation. Overall, this is as advertised--an IPA that evokes the islands and fruity drinks. Certainly not your standard IPA in terms of bitterness and for those who like bitter, resiny IPA’s are likely to be disappointed. Could have used a little bit more balance to be more interesting but it is true to itself.

Pours clear golden with thin white head. Nose is fruity. Aromas are over ripe fruits, pineapple, pine resin, a hint of fresh menthol. Average carbonation, medium body. Long bitter finish. Not so exciting, too sweet.

Bomber. Hazy gold with a dense soapy white head. Aroma of pineapple, lemon, floral notes, and a hint of pine. Flavors of grapefruit, honey, melon, grass. Medium body, well-balanced. A bit of bitterness that stays for the aftertaste.
