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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Piney resinous hoppy aroma with descent malt balance. Slight sweet malty with a dry bitter resinous finish. Has a bit of a dirty unfiltered hop feel. Drinkable descent ipa, but nothing impressive.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Deep amber brew with tan head, darker than many IPA’s. Moderate aroma of earth, spice and a little citrus. Taste is nicely balance malt and hoops - modest malt with a hop forward citrus / spice at the start of the swallow, maltiness emerges towards the middle of the swallow and then is balanced with a very pleasant earth / spice finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tallboy can into a snifter.
3.0 A: Murky copper plum color. Not quite one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is below average, especially for the style and a short ring of lacing is left.
3.5 S: Mix of a few different hop components - pine and grapefruit, nondeScript spiciness, orange with a touch of lemon zest, and floral. Mild bready yeastiness with honey and caramel notes. Despite the complexity, it’s not as vibrant as I’d like.
3.5 T: Moderate bitterness. The bready yeastiness is pretty strong and distracting at times. Caramel and a slight toastiness. The hops are primarily piney with grapefruit. The other components listed in the smell are there as well, but all pretty subdued.
3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lacking creaminess but it is rather chewy due to the yeastiness.
3.5 D: It’s not bad, but I prefer cleaner, less yeasty IPAs as a general rule.

Not much nose. Very nice mouth feel. This beer almost has a toasted malt flavor. It is a great example of balance between malt and hops. It is a very good beer.
