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 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at brewery. Pours a very clear light gold color with medium sized white head. Nose is very floral with lots of tangerine and hints of grapefruit and lemon. Taste is initially sweet with some fruitiness to it. Tropical like melons and such. Then the bitterness kicks in to balance the malt backbone. Dries out in the finish. Still a tad sweet for my liking but very good and well balanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy and lightly piney hops, some pale and caramel malts, and light dough. Flavor the same with sort of a light hoppiness. Average texture. Not a bad IPA.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle from Greenville Beer Exchange, Greenville, SC. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of pine, wet grass, and grapefruit rind. Nice assertive hop taste of...pine, wet grass, and grapefruit rind. Long lasting bitterness. Very little balance (and that’s ok with me). This really walks a thin line between IPA and DIPA and is an outstanding beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy amber orange color with a light tan head. Aroma is a light citrusy fleshy fruit hops, apricot. Flavor is much more potent with a moderate citrusy bitterness and some light malt sweetness. Very assertive. Light to medium in body with a lingering bittersweet. Delicious.

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.
