COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Library IPA is definitely not for everyone. True to the IPA style, it has a dormant, almost overpowering hop bitterness. A three week dry hopping process is used to prepare the ale, as was done centuries ago, when this style of beer first came about.

I love IPAs and this is certainly an IPA lover’s beer. Its easy on the malt, heavy on the hops and you realize it as soon as it hits your mouth. It finishes quick and smooth and another is always needed.

Orange budwiser borwn from a growler. nose is orange and lemon. Some rice and bubblegum. Flavour is warm cascade and simcoe flavours, thin on malts. Enjoyable, yet unimanagitive.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2006
(On tap) Clear amber with a creamy, off-white head leaving pretty laces. Lovely, fat, oily aroma hops in the nose. Medium body with a caramelish sweetness completely balanced by dry hops. Solidly hoppy finish. Very delicate and without challenge way the best beer in the standard Coach range. 200306

BeerandBlues2 (9355) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 25, 2006
Draught-OKC Bricktown. Pours light copper with a foamy-rocky off-white head with thick lacing. Aroma is huge floral, citrus (orange) hop, pine notes and caramel malt (meal). Heavy rind, pine and resinous bitter, highly acidic flavor, medium sweetness and a lasting caramel malt body. Medium bodied and crisp, refreshing palate.

MrRomero (1974) - Nolanville, USA - DEC 20, 2005
On tap at Coach’s Bricktown. Mjames said this could be on or off but tonight it was on. Poured orange with a medium white head. Nice grassy hop aroma with a touch of citrus. Grassy hop flavor with a mild bitter finish. If you get a fresh sample through clean taps like me, this beer rocks.

As far as IPA go, this is pretty bottom of the barrel. On tap at the ballgame in OK City, this is extremely gritty and hoppy, yet its thickness leaves it rather poor in flavor. One of the few IPAs I haven’t liked. That said, it’s better than the two other Coach’s I’m about to rate.

Had it at the Bricktown ballpark tonight and was pleased at how much better this was than I remembered. There seemed to be more body, and it had a long lasting head, two things of which I didn’t recall before. Pleasing bitter hops at the front, without being overly sweet. A really good effort for this brewery.

Terminus (3214) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - AUG 15, 2004
tap at brewpub-pours orange with a very cola like head-not much carbonation or body on this one-flavors are mostly cascade hops and some toasty malts. this had potential, but the body was just not there in this batch. mjames swears that this is a quality beer and i would agree when served properly

PrinceofNessus (236) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 27, 2004
Nice yellow appearance, very clear. The hops is very apparent in both the aroma and the taste. the hop flavor however, is not as mellow as i would like, it needs to be aged a bit before being sold

lilannie (384) - Adamstown, Maryland, USA - FEB 17, 2004
Aroma: smells of sweet, dry hops and carmel malts.
Appearance: nice golden yellow tones
Flavor: large taste of hops, very dry; kind of a weird aftertaste of hops and something else that I can't put my finger on.
Palate: dryness at the back of the tongue and throat with a sweet bite at the front and middle.
Overall: not bad, although my taste isn't for IPAs.
