3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle served in Solemn Oath snifter. Bottled 2/27/13. Thanks to rnorgart for the bottle!
A: Pours a murky dark orange color with a yellowish head forming on the pour. it recedes to thick ring with some sticky sheets of lace left down the glass.
S: Bready malts with some earthy hop spice. A little dried grass with some mild citrus peel.
T: There are a ton of flavors going on in this one. There’s a dark bread spiciness with some herbal hops. Very earthy in nature. White bread sweetness from malts as well with a light piney bitterness. Light lemon zest with a little orange pith as well.
M: Medium bodied with a little heft to it. Moderate chew, but easy drinking with a medium soft carbonation. Slight bitterness to the finish without too much drying.
O: Definitely more of an English style IPA in my opinion, but pretty balanced between the earthy and spicy hops and sweet bread malts.
Serving type: bottle

On tap at Poe's on Sullivan's island. Good IPA, poured a hazy orange. Nice hop flavor with a nice malt balance. It's not an over the top IPA, but an excellent IPA none the less.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: Very fruity. Floral. Hops come through. Balanced
A: Pours a hazy orange color. Head is moderate size but the bubbles cascade through the beer as if it were a nitro tap. Pretty nice.
T: As with the smell, a big citrus note to start. Hops cut through sharply and the finish is smooth. Alcohol is a nice compliment.
P: Very nice. Medium/heavy body. Carbonation is on the money and smooth. The bitterness is a bit aggressive on the palate.
Overall a very nice IPA, and more of what I would expect from COAST. A solid citrus note sets this one apart. Otherwise nice on the palate, and the heavy mouthfeel helps subdue the alcohol. Very nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Charleston Beer Works. Pours a somewhat cloudy, bright gold color with a smallish eggshell white head that leaves a sheet of lace in the glass. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, sweet malts, sugar, candy, and bread. Flavor of citrus and tropical fruits, grass, sweet malts, faint spice, and floral notes late. Light body, moderate carbonation, and a sweet mouthfeel that ends more bitter. Interesting IPA that seems just a bit restrained.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 11/2012 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy golden-apricot color with a small soapy white head that faded and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy fruity hops, sugar and noticeable yeast. Dry, must and bitter flavor with notes of pine and tropical fruits. Medium length pine and tropical fruit finish. Medium body. Ok.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Grapevine. Orange colored pour with a white head. Huge hop aroma with citrus, pine, grapefruit, orange and even lemon. Taste is smooth and easy drinking, light carbonation, fairly bitter. Good beer, but nothing stands out as impressive. Probably goes bad pretty quick; apparently this keg was 6 days old. Id recommend as fresh as possible.
