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.

12 oz bottle. Ok, I’m not trying to be lazy, but ditto on the commercial description. It’s short and sweet and spot on. Great ipa.

(12oz bottle dated 01-02-11 thanks to Cavie) clear gold with creamy tan-yellow head. Nose is quite dank, grapefruit, caramel, and slightly attenuated. Taste is a bit faded, grapefruit, mildly bitter, cream, and orange. Well balanced.

Leighton (21255) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2011
Keg at Euston Tap, London. Pours a slightly hazy, vibrant gold with a small, white head. Bit of caramel and pine in the nose. Flavor is fairly sweet. Lots of spicy hops, some anise and candy, some crunchy grains. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Faint warming finish, reasonably well balanced, bit of light pine, resinous earth, slight oils, some hay and toasted white bread. Pretty good.

[355ml bottle, Appellation Wines, Edinburgh] Pours a deep orange with peaky white head, which reduces pretty quickly. From the first sniff to the last sip - this is a classic, down the lines San Diego IPA. Pine, sticky resin on the nose. Orange citrus on the palate, plenty of resinous hop. Reminded me very much of Ruination IPA - albeit not quite as punishing. The malt gives a good sticky sweetness to the citrus and pineapple fruit, it’s very well balanced [24092011]

Review from notes at World of Beer - Fort Myers on 9/24/11. Poured on draft into a shaker pint. Appearance: Pours a light golden amber color with a 1 finger white head. Nice lacing. Smell: Sweet and bitter citrus with a touch of sweet malt. Taste: Sweet citrus with a touch of roasted malt. Piney finish with a bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Drinkability: Pretty good drinkability. You could drink a couple without much difficulty. Overall: Pretty good beer overall. Not the best IPA, but it’s worth a shot.

Bottle. Orange, fizzy and IPA like. Malty and bitter with hops not overpowering. This was a most premium effort.

BenH (3439) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 23, 2011
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.
