Coronado islander served in a bottle! Pours a darkish copper and instantly smells of piney bitterness. Defies the west coast style IPA paradigm here with english style heavy malting and minimal flowery aroma. Very bitter, medium bodied with harsh biting carbonation, and a nutty overall theme. Among the sea of IPAs saturated in the CA market, this almost reminds me of a mediocre rendition of a Drakes IPA. The 7% alcohol is also very noticeable here and somehow combines with the malt character to give a punch in the face. Not my personal favorite but It's probably good enough for some to enjoy.

A-pours a medium brown to dark golden color AR- citrus (orange mostly), hoppy, slight malt, and bread T- slight malt, strong orange taste, finishes with slight lemon/acidic taste, after taste is a hint of warm alcohol M- thin and watery, could be a bit bettered balanced O- a decent IPA overall not the worst I've had not the best I've had, if it
