COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after Coronado Island, our original India Pale Ale is a liquid expression of hometown pride. Centennial, Chinook and Columbus hops combine to provide an explosive burst of piney bitterness and luscious notes of apricot, grapefruit and mango that are sure to evoke imagery of swaying palms and sun-kissed shores.

I was looking forward to trying this. Before I start I should say that I suspect the bottle was old. It had very little hop aroma. It has a nice bitterness but not a lot of hop flavour, the malt comes though a lot more. Decent beer but pretty disappointing

Pours a light yellow with white head. Has a strong citrus hop aroma. A nice citrus hop flavor with some wheat. Taste is bitter but not overpowering.

En hygglig Ipa, ngot mesig kanske. Inte heller s fruktig som flera andra i klassen.

olsvammel (6843) - rebro, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2013
Sample at a Systembolaget tasting. Sweet malty and hoppy smell. Smells a bit like sponge cake. Fresh taste with a pleasent bitterness. The hops are a bit tired. Probably better fresh.

Smells like citrus fruit. Taste is wonderfully balanced with yet more fruit and just the right anonymt of fiery alcohol. A very good IPA, complex yet refreshing.
