An IPA That's a Hometown Hero,

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.

Ya, it tastes like a mango/lemon cookie to me. Very buttery in the mouth with a sweet and bitter-lemon taste. The look in the glass is amazing to me. Copper with a pure white head, great lacing. Smell is a bit weak, but pleasant. Overall, a good beer for $11/6-pack.

Pours a not quite clear yellow color with a massive amount of white head. Smell is citrus and pine. Taste is mango and a hint of pine, finished with a sweet fruit flavor. Soft mouthfeel. It's quite nice, especially the feel of it. Would certainly get this again.

Bottled 2/11/15; drank 3/8/15 @ the Yarchives.

Semi-opaque orange appearance.

HUGE bright white head; frothy, tree-rung lace.

Pine needles, fresh soap & mild booze heat in the nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Mango, caramel & pine flavors up front; mild booze heat & dry oak on the finish.

Plenty flavorful, but a bit too dry & boozy for me.

Fairly nice, crisp, well-balanced IPA from a new brewery for me. Pours a clear slightly darker golden color with some fluffy white head and spotty lacing that lingered for a while. Smells of citrus zest and floral hops, as well as some weaker aromas of malt, vanilla and bread. Taste follows the nose - it’s a little hard to distinguish the fruits within the hoppiness but there’s great balance with the sweeter malt backbone. The vanilla, bread, caramel and floral hops are more restrained. Smooth, crisp, mild mouthfeel with good carbonation. I could easily drink a couple of these on a hot summer’s day.

[Original rating 2014-12-31] Draft at Buddy’s bites and brews Hayward CA. Pours clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of flowers, citrus. Taste is similar, flowery in a good way. Nice IPA.
