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.

Hazy amber beer, tidy white head. Smooth palate with a little sting from some fine carbonation. Creamy malt base. Sweetish pale malt, prominent but dominant. Nice airy hops - pine with a little fresh orange. Mild bitterness and mild minerals. Fresh finish. Nicely joined up. Very drinkable.

poured from bottle into the most expensive glasswear money can buy! Okay, this is a very good IPA in the "East Coast" tradition. Quite sweet, but nicely balanced. This is an easy drinker!

Kroney (255) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Meh... was hoping for something as good as Coronados Idiot IPA, but this falls woefully short. Pours a rich orange/copper color with a quick disappearing head. No lacing. Aroma is citrus, and initially smells really good, but as it lingers it almost has a fermented/spoiled smell that carries through in the flavor. Last 6pack if Islander Ill be buying, unless they dramatically lower the price.

On tap...it was an excellent substitute for the 60 minute that was tapped out shortly before I arrived! Paired well with chorizo. Slightly copper & cloudy...a pungent hop aroma mixed with a pleasant malt scent. Taste is similar to aroma with an added creamy palate. Spicy hop aftertaste and good light lacing. Yum

TheJestersBeer (2429) - SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2013
355ml bottle. Pours a medium gold, with a white head. Very hoppy aroma, spruce, apricot, resin, grapefruit peel, pineapple, caramel. Of-dry, medium bodied, high bitterness, balanced CO2. The taste is likewise hoppy, with resiny notes and loads of spruce and tropical fruits. It does, however, feel a bit tired, as I pick up a few oxidized notes. The malty backbone and the structure is there, but it could have been a little bit fresher. (2013-01-05)
