This beer is a delicious treat. It pours a cloudy golden with some white head. It smells very citrusy and floral. When you taste it you will be in IPA Ecstasy. The flavor is a very well balanced hop and malt note. I love this beer and wish I had bought more than one bomber.

With all the good IPAs out there this one is mentionable. Nice citrus hoppy blend with a dangerously drinkable body and nice head. Growler

Big amber pour, chunky fluffy head. Nice citrusy piney nose...taste was the same, but a nice sweeter maltiness that is sometimes missed in our beloved west coast ipa’s. This was way to drinkable, almost finished it without enjoying it. Overall, i have had a ton of the east coast ipa’s but this is up there with the best, and pretty close in my top 10 for all IPA’s.big thanks on this, need more.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2011 Drinking HopArt is akin to chewing on a fresh cascade hop. The hops concentrated into this single IPA are deliriously potent, with a smooth malt backing that keeps things from reaching Ruination-like levels of bitterness. HopArt is a dry, piney, gorgeous pint of beer, and it keeps us Charlestonians satisfied while we wait for the next batch of COAST’s nigh-perfect DIPA, Boy King.

Pours a cloudy golden orange/peach color with golden burnt orange hues when held to a light source and a two finger yellowish foam head. Very good retention, only slowly settling into a lasting cap that coats the glass with sheets of chunky soapy lacing.
Earthy floral hop aroma with lots of sweet citrus notes. Plenty of dank oily hops with hints of grapefruit, mango and lemon peel. Subtle earthy pine character and light malts.
Chewy resinous full body with lots of earthy dry hops and sweet citrus flavor. This beer is amazingly fresh with lots of luscious dank oily hops as well as both dry pine and sweet citrus notes. Lots of mango, grapefruit and lemon peel character with a ton of dry bitterness and dry earthy pine needle. Slight alcohol presence toward the end of the swallow that lingers into the dry finish. Nice biscuit/graham cracker malt backbone provides some balance but doesn’t detract from the glorious hop flavor at all. I loved this beer and wished that I had better access to it. Highly recommended!

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, I’ll be seeing you again.

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.
