Had this as Island Ale at Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant. It was o.k. but nothing to write home about. Went pretty good with my food but nothing special (on the other hand, I’d probably get it again if I ever go back).

Pours a dark coppery red color, but that’s about where the positives end. Aroma was faint, with a mix of hops and spices. Flavor was sharp with an unpleasant bite of spices and citrus. Finish was bitter but not very smooth. Pass on this paradise drink.

Tap. Thin off white head and dark copper color. Hop and citrus aroma. Mild hoppy bite. Slightly metallic with citrus notes. Labeled Island Ale at cheeseburger in paradise. Nothing special, but I’ve had worse. C

had it last week at cheeseburger in paradise so i hope i remember well enough. was surprised at the hops character in the taste and smell. the server said it was triple hoped which i doubt but it was still entertaining. good carbonation and a pretty copper color. great alternative to ordering the other macro pale ales when out.

Had a quarter of this for a draft party. Was well received by all. I enjoyed this beer maybe too much. Enjoyed it more than the draft at least.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2008 judging by the other rates, i think im on the right beer here. i had it at a hotel bar last night and they called it "coasters ale". but it was a dark red/copper color, moderately hoppy and actually pretty good. it caught my attention because it said leine’s on the tap. i’d buy it again, it was a pleasant change from the budlight that was my other choice.

Actually not a bad beer. Had it on tap as the Island Ale as well. Wasn’t expecting much when I ordered it but to my suprise it was actually alright.
