Growler fill at CBX. Pours a cloudy, mild amber color with thick white head. Aroma is not overwhelming, but I get a piny resin with a hint of grapefruit at the end. At first glance it looked like an average IPA. But then I tasted it and was quiet surprised. This is a super smooth drink as there seems to be little carbonation. As with the smell, I get a resin taste at the front and then comes the citrus to close the show. Has an excellent bitter pop at the end that I look for in a good IPA. This beer really stays with you after a sip. I continuously get the taste of the beer in the back of my mouth and tongue well after I have taken a drink. The palate on this beer is amazing. I would highly recommend this to any beer enthusiast. Well done Coast HopArt, Iíll be seeing you again.

22 oz bottle. Cloudy pale brown with a fluffy white head. Nose is orange and dough, a little dusty. Juicy medium body with a buzz. Taste is pink grapefruit, pith, juniper and capers. Bitter citric finish. Not bad but a bit harsh for me.

Perfumy, citrus nose; some sugars. Moderately sweet taste, lots of caramel and cotton candy, lightly bitter, lots of grapefruit and citrus. Medium body is dense and chewy. Blah.

nimbleprop (4196) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 6, 2010
22oz bottle pours a hazy, orange color with one ring of white, spitty head. Aroma is pretty nice, citrus, lemons, sweet, doughy, a little pine. Flavor is strongly bitter, lemons, grapefruit, a little bread, some light sweetness. Finish is lasting bitterness. A big IPA for sure. Could have been balanced a bit better.

Hank1980 (942) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Bottle from a great bottle shop. Pours a hazy golden orange with a good amount of white head, some lacing. Aroma is of lemony and orange hops. Taste is also hoppy, though not overly so, with a nice sweet bready malt presence. Finish is lightly hoppy. Mouth is medium bodied and carbonation is a little lighter than a lot of IPAs. Overall, a decent ale.

Bomber... Pours a deep hazy orange with a 2 finger white frothy head... Some citrus hop notes on the nose.. Medium body with a burst of spice and citrus on the tip of the tongue... Nice blend of hops and malts... Deep finish with big caramel malts and sticky wet citrus hops... it sticks with you for a bit... Really nice organic IPA ... Drinks easy and is packed full of flavor and hops...

illidurit (2050) - Petaluma, USA - FEB 23, 2010
Bottle at Woodshop 5.0. Pours a clear dark gold with a small but dense white head. Aromas of grapefruit, herbs, herb, and sourdough. Bright citrusy flavor with some sweeter hop notes. Not much malt going on here, just a pale unobtrusive backbone for the hops. Solid bitterness with a little astringency muddling the mouthfeel. Pretty good.

Thick cloudy orange pour with tan white head. Smell of citrus, hops and hops. Taste is very bitter! This will please the hop head. Strong bitter and biscuit? aftertaste. Stuff stuff!
