On tap. Poured cloudy orangish copper with a big white head. Nose is hoppy citrus, light malt - very hoppy. Taste is very hoppy and malt sweetness is there for some balance, not all that much considering the hops. Hops are very citrusy and fruity. Mouth is full and sticky. Overall, a decent ale.

A: The pour is a golden orange color with a nice white head on top. S: An intense citrus nose on this beer. Lots of juicy grapefruit notes with some orange and maybe a bit of pineapple as well. A very mild malt character. T: A sharp citrus kick up front featuring some fresh and juicy grapefruit flavors. The hops are slightly fruity but also some great piney bitterness, especially on the finish. M: The body is medium with a really crisp and refreshing finish and a great carbonation. D: A really easy to drink DIPA and one that is truly delicious as well. Iím pleased to have been able to try this one out.

Thanks to Alex for getting a growler of this stuff. Poured into Surly pint glass. A - Pours a grapefruit orange/pink color, very hazy, with a couple fingers of white head. This stuff is sticky, lots of lacing and a decent cap remains after the initial pour. S - More malty then hoppy on the nose mixed in with some floral notes. T - Decently bitter, a good amount of hops along with some sweetness. Some tropical fruit notes, citrus, and some nice malty notes. M - Light to medium, light carbonation, oily finish. D - A good DIPA, but not great. Drank an Exit 16 right after and it was much better then this one. Would drink again, but not going to go out on a limb to get it again.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2010
Huge thanks to Brodie for sharing this one. Pours a hazy golden orange with a small soapy white head that recedes to a thin collar leaving spotty lacing. The nose is great on this one with a boatload of juicy sweet citrus hops - grapefruit, oranges, pineapples - with a complementary grassy character as well. The sweet caramel malts are there but definitely take a back seat. The taste is just as good and, again, dominated by citrus fruits in the form of pineapples and grapefruit. Itís really all about the hops with only enough malt to keep things balanced. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation but with a pleasant hop stickiness that lingers with mild bitterness through the finish. Well, this one exceeded expectations for me and is really in my wheelhouse as far as DIPAs go - big juicy citrus hop flavor without palate-crushing bitterness. An excellent beer and the best thing that COAST has produced as far as Iím concerned.

Growler thanks to Dunt on BA at DLD. Pours hazy copper with a large lasting white head. Aroma is very hoppy and citrusy. Lots of grapefruit. Not much malt. Flavor is really good. Rough grapefruit, pine, tropical fruit, and a little sweet malt. Pretty harsh palate in a good way. Lots of hop resins. Sticks with you. Drinkability is good. This is a great DIPA overall and ALMOST lives up to the hype it gets on BeerAdvocate.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2010 growler. Heavy fruity floral nose. Yeah its hop driven, but there are so many layers: oils/resin, citrus fruits, and booze. My kinda DIPA, deeply drinkable. Shit.tons.of.sophisticated.hops, but in perfect union. Definitely more than Hop Art on steroids. A grand slam. ~Coast, bottle this and brew more DIPAs... I like your style.~ ============= !Batch 2(?)! reviewed, drunk, 7/23/10 Different than I remembered. Fruits are still strong, just not as backed w/ piney punch. Yeast. Still a muthafukiní real deal strong India pale ale. growler from Greenís again. Heard kegs were flipped... to distribute yeast??? IMHO a perfect DIPA. one --7/24-- Next evening, (mostly empty) 2nd day growler (one huge pint), pretty close to flat (too drunk to properly twist lid nite b4). Still DEEP in hop heaven. BUT... after that switched to Stone 14 (higher rated, DIPA)... no fucking comparison. The Stone could not keep up w/ the chewy body of Coast is on brewing enhancing drugs.

Poured from a growler into a tulip glass. Growler purchased at Greenís Discount in Columbia, SC. From their website, a correction to the ABV should be 9.7%; Ingredients: 2-Row*, Munich* and Wheat* Malt, Citra, Chinook, Nugget, Cascade, Centenniel and Columbus Hops. *denotes organic ingredient 9.7% abv. Seasonal- Spring Appearance: Cloudy amber color with a nice fluffy off-white head. Moderate lacing. Aroma: Citrus hops are prominent. Mixture of sweet citrus and floral scents. Some underlying pine hops are also present. T&P: Mixture of floral, pine, and citrus hop flavors with a strong mildly sweet malt presence. Fades to a slightly bitter, resiny flavor. Medium to heavy body. Very smooth with a bit of a fluff from the carbonation. Actually, as the temperature of the beer warms, the carbonation also lightens dramatically. It may be that my fridge is too cold? This stuff is excellent considering the ABV and how the alcohol is completely masked by the well-balanced taste. Definitely worth trying and Coast really needs to consider offering this year round if it isnít in the works already!
