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.

Cakes (493) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2010
12 oz. bottle. A mild bitterness here with a mid creamy head. A lacy orange tinged citrus taste. An attractive beer - a strong offering.

(tap 0,2l @ OP (Brno))

Aroma: Malty, biscuits.

Appearance: Clear dark golden. Medium, white head.

Taste: Medium sweet, malty, biscuits, light spicy, medium bitter, light perfumy hops.

Palate: Medium-full body. Light bitter finish.

Overall: Malty IPA. Could be more hoppy.

Out of a bottle. Smell is a cooking biscuit, nice and toasty with hops in there and a slice of pine. Caramel accent. Taste is also toasted, cookie and mild. Not a lot of good until the palate hits and then it's a mild bitterness. Nice foam and lacing in the bottle if that counts

nihtila (3952) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 20, 2017
Bottle from Safeway, SF. Clear golden. Nose is floral, pine, grass, apricot, mango. Tastes grapefruit, citrus, bitter, grass.

IslandHaole (1299) - 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.

Heidbummer (927) - SCOTLAND - SEP 12, 2017
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 (155) - 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.

Stuu666 (15034) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 22, 2017
Keg at brewdog Edinburgh. Pours golden, nose is floral, orange, taste is sweet, grassy, citrus.

Scopey (15857) - 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.

theswiftsa (118) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2017
Tap at brewdog Camden. Pours an opaque golden, white head, good lacing. Nose is sweet pine, grapefruit. Taste is upfront tropical fruits, feeding into a mild to medium bitterness. Great balance.
