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.

Enjoyed at the Burger Bar in Vegas. Pours a clear deep amber with a moderate frothy white foam. Aroma is big pine hop aroma with the sweetness of fruity malts. Taste is a soothing blast of pine and citrus hops with some resinous aspects. Sweetness from the malt comes in but does not balance this out.

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 (1533) - 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 (5751) - 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.

MrHangover (3935) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2016
Draft @ Brouwcafe de Molen. Pours a hazy, slightly unclear orange beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is slightly herbal, grassy, hoppy, citrussy with grapefruit zest. Flavor is mildly bitter, citrussy and had subtle hints of some bittersweet spices. Some nutmeg or something. A bit weird, but certainly likeable.

From a 12 oz/ 355ml bottle. After a bit of a bottle roll comes out a nice hazy golden colour. The smell is a strong apricot and ripe rockmelon aroma that surrounds you. A really nice malty backbone holds any bitterness in its place and at 7% ABV I would say up the IBU’s. That said, this is an exceptional beer. It coats your mouth with its greatness and holds a head to its last drop. Love it.

Poured from a can. Hazy light orange color. Thin soapy head. Some kind of tropical fruit aroma. Taste is piney backed by tropical fruits. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
