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.

tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Pour is a slightly hazy straw/orange color with a fluffy off white head. Lots of piney hops up front on the nose, a bit of tropical fruit notes, citrus, and a nice kind of bready malt character. Lots of citrus on the taste, some piney hops and tropical fruit, and a hint of alcohol. Medium-light boried, well balanced but not as flavorful as I’d expect from a 7% west coast IPA.

IslandHaole (1291) - Misawa, JAPAN - SEP 16, 2017
Medium golden with a creamy head. Citrusy hops with hints of over ripe papaya. Seems light bodied for a 7% ABV beer. Crisp, light carbonation. The malts don't quite balance out the hops, lingering bitterness. Fair but nothing special.

Keg, Brewdog Shepherds Bush. It's just not quite right. A promising big pine and bitter first mouthful, and citrus/pine aroma, but both taste and smell have metallic, rubbery notes after a while which I could not get rid of.

VueltaBirrista (129) - Murcia, SPAIN - SEP 4, 2017
Su aspecto es similar al de tantísimas cervezas del estilo: ámbar dorado algo turbio y espuma no muy generosa. En nariz la encuentro algo plana; tonos herbales y cítricos. Pero es en boca donde se suelta la melena y nos golpea con todo un mundo de sabores a pino, especias y frutas como albaricoque o melocotón. Su final amargo es severo y muy duradero y si, como en mi caso, eres un apasionado del estilo, seguramente te va a encantar.

3.2
Scopey (15475) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2017
Keg at BD Castlegate. It pours clear golden - amber with a small white head. The aroma is soft, sweet, stone fruits, apricot, nectarine, peach, marmalade and bread. The taste is dry, bitter, resinous, apricot, peach, metallic tang, bread, cereal, wood and a touch of alcohol with a drying finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. More of an old school US IPA. Fair.
