UPDATED: APR 2, 2016 Perfect color for an IPA- really solid beer. Not quite excellent- really good, almost too simple. A solid IPA. Cant decide what it is missing to make it excellent. Would definitely have again- available in growlers at Mt. Pleasant Whole Foods for 12$ Can at Xiao Bao. Still good- Edmunds Oast calls it "arguably the flagship IPA of Charleston". Dank and malty and slick mouthfeel. Bitter at the end. Lives up to style unapologetically. Respect.

22 oz bottle fr Charleston Beer Exchange. Huge hop aroma with notes of dishsoap. Very cloudy in the glass with noticeable chunks (bottle 2 weeks old). Body a little thin. Reminded me of a weaker version of Stone Ruination with aggressive, not floral, hops (nugget & simcoe). Lots of grapefruit but not much of the malt as promised on the label. Plenty hoppy but struck me as a one note beer. Certainly not bad but I was hoping for more.

Pours a cloudy yellow-amber color with a thin white head. The aroma is really nice with citrus and pine notes.The hops are not as prominent in the taste as I expected but it is still really nice.

Picked up a half gallon from CBX, enjoyed before the Phish show on Saturday. Pour was orange and murky, the first pour from the growler left a decent white head, glass was ridden with lace after a few sips. Aroma was full of hop goodness, big citrus notes with some resiny pine. A rather large bitterness was woven all the way through this thing. Nice citrusy hop flavors rounded out the bitterness, smooth stuff. This stuff is worthy of the esteem, its great.

I feel like I must have gotten a different beer from everybody else. My sister and brother in law love this beer and told me and other sis to go to Poes on Sullivans Island (cool place!) and drink the Coast IPA. What showed up in our glasses was a big disappointment, it was thick and murky, like Inishuk IPA, couldnt see anything through it. Please people, learn the art of brewing! My sister had a couple sips and pronounced she couldnt drink it so I had hers, not cause I wanted it but I didnt want to waste the money! The taste and aroma had elements of a good beer but it was completely let down by the appearance and lack of drinkability. I would not order another one. We could have had a bad keg but the other reviewers noted its cloudiness, may be it doesnt bother other people.

Is this a pliny the elder clone? They must use a very similar hop blend because the aroma is spot on. Interesting style that I havent seen from an east coast brew

Draught sample at the brewery. Pours hazy brass orange with nice whitish head. The aroma is juicy citrus hops with orange and grapefruit dominating; a bit of floral and sweet aroma lingers behind. The flavor is semi-bitter with lots of juicy hop taste and some woodiness. Most of the hops come across as grapefruit. There is a bit of white raisin sweetness to the malt backbone. Herbal bitterness characterizes the finish. Fresh and tasty.
