Coronado Brewing Co. Islander IPA

by Kelli H. on February 5, 2013

Name: Coronado Brewing Co. Islander IPA
Date: 2-3-13
Type: IPA
Location: Coronado, California
Alcohol: 7%
Price: $3.99/22 oz
IBU’s: 75

Aroma: Sweet, lightly hopped

Appearance: Clear, lots of small bubbles rushing to the top, golden

Body & Texture: Really smooth, nicely carbonated, feels light-medium bodied for an IPA

Aftertaste: Clean hoppy flavor

Overall Impression:
I’m really happy my dad bought this beer for our little Super Bowl get together. The aroma had me a little worried that I wouldn’t like it too much. On the other hand, David was able to totally distinguish the hop aroma without even reading the back! At $3.99 a bottle, this is a great buy and totally worth it! I think it’s a really solid IPA. I’d drink it again, buy it myself, and I’ll definitely be looking forward to trying more of Coronado’s beers.

This is one of my favorites from coronado brewery. And with there new recipe with a higher abv and little hoppier taste is always a plus
