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.

Really good stuff. It’s not my go to ipa but whenever it’s there, I won’t turn my nose up to it. I couldn’t bring myself to do that to any beer. Beers have feelings too.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy burnt orange with a big soapy white head. Spicey notes on the nose, light piney hops, ripe fruits like orange and mango, and a nice bready malt character. Really bright tropical fruit bitterness on the taste, sweet biscuity malt, resinous pine, and just a hint of spice. Really well rounded, love the citrusy and piney hops.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled on 11/15/13. Pours a medium amber against a golden hue. Average head and lacing. Nice nose of balanced pine and citrus hops. Almost medium body with good carbonation. The taste is artfully balanced of hops against a light malt background. As the nose, the flavor profile is pine hop followed by grapefruit citrus. A nice bitterness, but this brew focuses on hop flavor. Clean finish with a lingering grapefruit flavor and slight bitterness. Hats Off to my brewing brethren on the SC coast and the guys at Greenville Beer Exchange that recommend this. This is an art of using hops and is better than SN Celebration in a side by side.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16oz pour at The Lodge, HHI, SC. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a large head that fades to ample lacing. Aroma is fairly mild with some malt sweetness, fresh grain, bit of fruit and a trace of spice. Taste is a nice blend of some caramel sweetness, fruit and fresh grain. Has a nice easy bitterness and a dry finish. Fairly medium body, nice crispness and smooth. Very well crafted.
