Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Nice hoppy pale ale with a great balance, definitely very drinkable. This brewery is making some very solid beers.

On tap at Craftsmen. Pours a surprising yellow gold with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, mango, grapefruit, grassy hops. Flavor of citrus, grassy hops, hop oils, fruity hops, with a bitter finish. Very tasty hoppy, fruity APA (more of an IPA). 8/4/8/4/14 (3.8/5)

BOD 1/28/14. Cloudy golden pour with a typical head and lacing that retains for a minute or so. The nose is a blend of citrus and pine hop aromas. Light medium body, somewhat smooth, with a touch above normal carbonation level. The flavor profile is hop forward, but with a mild bitterness. Citrus and pine hops compete for a well balanced blend over a light biscuit background. On the finish, pine predominates as it effervesces then flows into a grapefruit rind bitterness that lingers. A solid offering from Coast, but it needs more balance from the malt.

650 ml bottle from Lane(clt85). Thanks. Pours a cloudy yellow-gold color with a medium sized white head that has good retention. The aroma is very hops forward with grapefruit and lemons. The taste, like the aroma, features bitter grapefruit and lemons set nicely in a light bready pilsener malt base. The palate is light but effective and the carbonation is lively. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Very tasty APA, I loved it.

Bottle. Golden straw pour. Lighter body, significant carbage. Really nice tropical fruit and pine notes. Bitter dry finish. One of better pales I have come across recently. If I was local, Id drink a bunch of this stuff.

Nicely aromatic and citrus forward pale ale. A bit thin and lacking in malt depth but just a tasty hop bomb that isnt too bitter. Great stuff.

Had on tap at Smoky Oak Taproom on James Island. Pours lighter than I would have expected for a pale- sort of a cloudy gold colour. Made me wonder if it is unfiltered? Big head that stuck around for the party.Decent nose - pineapple, fruits, malty and that resinous hoppiness that can be great or really, really offputting. Initial taste is the sweet and then finishes with a decent hoppiness. A sort of piney dryness. Balance is a bit drier than I would have liked/expected and colour is a bit pale- but a solid pale ale; almost like a light IPA. Solid and refreshing- perfect after the driving range.
