From bottle. Pours orange/amber with hazy and small head. Aroma is all hop. Citrus and pine. Taste is similar with a balance of malt and a nice clean bittering. phaleslu (10747) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Draft at Charleston Beer Works. Pours a somewhat cloudy, bright gold color with a smallish eggshell white head that leaves a sheet of lace in the glass. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, sweet malts, sugar, candy, and bread. Flavor of citrus and tropical fruits, grass, sweet malts, faint spice, and floral notes late. Light body, moderate carbonation, and a sweet mouthfeel that ends more bitter. Interesting IPA that seems just a bit restrained. Karstenborg (1150) - Hasselager, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2012
1 pint bottle. The beer has a orange color with a minimal white heat. Aroma fruity hops, resin and elderflower. Light sweet taste. FROTHINGSLOSH (8164) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2012
From the 11/2012 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy golden-apricot color with a small soapy white head that faded and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy fruity hops, sugar and noticeable yeast. Dry, must and bitter flavor with notes of pine and tropical fruits. Medium length pine and tropical fruit finish. Medium body.

On tap at Grapevine. Orange colored pour with a white head. Huge hop aroma with citrus, pine, grapefruit, orange and even lemon. Taste is smooth and easy drinking, light carbonation, fairly bitter. Good beer, but nothing stands out as impressive. Probably goes bad pretty quick; apparently this keg was 6 days old. Id recommend as fresh as possible.

Growler from Greenville Beer Exchange, glad to see more COAST stuff on the growler stations! nick76 (4404) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2012
A: Awesome pour, absolutely gorgeous pour. Copper in color with a huge fluffy/billowy head. Retention is excellent
S: Less West Coast-y than I remember and more citrusy this time around...maybe its the growler, maybe the bottle I had earlier wasn’t as fresh. Either way, seemingly sturdy bitterness backed by a graham cracker-like malt. Some pine and resin, but more citrusy
T: Similar to the nose, the bitterness is bumped up a little with a well hopped flavor. Citrusy again (grapefruit, lemon?), pine, light resin, and balanced by malts well
MF/O: Smooth carbonation, medium body, very nice feel. Very drinkable, but I prefer the growler version to the bottle
COAST has never disappointed me, I hope they will get the outstanding recognition that they deserve
The aroma is hoppy and has a sweet sugary quality. The hops are grassy and herbal. There is also an earthiness to it. The appearance is amber gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall not bad. Palidor19 (3194) - Brandon, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2012
the beer has a very specific flavor with a nice balance of hops and malt. it has a very clean tasting flavor with nice grainy malts. the hops are clean with a nice grassy like flavor. Steasy66 (1158) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2012
