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.

Bottle. Nice well rounded ipa. Good amount of fruity hops on the nose. Fuity hop taste, with a strong caramel malt backbone. Slightly oily texture, bitter finish

Faint aroma of hops, little taste of hops until the finish, then there is a decent hoppy/bitter finish. So, overall, decent IPA, not well-balanced, I would like the hoppy flavor (IPA) in the beginning of the brew. No complexity, just an average to below average IPA.

Get the Idiot IPA by Coronado instead. This one is more bitter with a harsher finish. Not a bad IPA, but its idiot brother is better.

daleharshman (1062) - Escondido, California, USA - SEP 14, 2011
12 ounce bottle purchased a while back at Holiday Wine Cellar ($1.79). Pours a cloudy honey-range hue with only a thin layer of white foam. Aroma has pine, sharp citrus, some tropical fruit, and spicy hop notes. Flavor starts with hoppy pine, grapefruit, and bitter herbs but the significant bitterness soon blends with a malty sweetness. Lingering bitterness at the end. Full bodied and seemingly bigger than the 7% would indicate. Solid IPA. (258, 607)

Draught @ Beer Saurus, Tokyo. Rated on 07.09.2011
Fruity, hoppy aroma with some resin. A bit stale too. Flavour is sweetish and fruity with hops. Slightly light palate. Good IPA, drinkable and not too sweet.

leaparsons (10400) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2011
Bottle. Copper orange with a fluffy off-white foam. Aromas are pineapple and pine with rye and toffee malts. Floral with woody notes and cream. Burnt toast with bready yeast. Flavours are sweet, burnt toffee with Autumn fruit and pineapple juice. Quite bitter and dry with woody pine. Quite pleasant.

AshtonMcCobb (6407) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 31, 2011
355ml bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a nice head. The nose has very pingent grapes and sweet malt. The taste has sultanas and more of that pungent malt which finishes a little dry and burnt. The palate is medium to full in body, there is a fairly thick texture with a clean-ish texture but for some reason, there is a burnt/hoppy note that returns and is a little unpleasant which is a shame since it was set up well from the beginning. Overall, a good beer which is patchy in parts.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Nice citrus aroma on this hazy amber offering. Bitter flavor with a slight malt touch upfront. It tries to sweeten up at the end but never really gets there. To dry and bitter at the close.

stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2011
On tap at lucky dog. Aroma is mild Hoppy. Taste is initially sweet caramel malts, followed by severe bitterness. Some grapefruit citrus in there as well. Its ok.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle from The Brauhaus. A very nice IPA. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is a little sweet with fruity hops, like tropical juice. Flavours of passion fruit, pineapple and pine before a big bitter hit wipes these away. Some sweetness lingers initially with a nice bitter linger. Mouth-feel is quite foamy and a little oily.
