This is my first beer from North Coast. Served from a 12 oz. bottle. Pours a light to medium gold with a decent head that doesn't leave much lacing. Hops are very noticeable in the aroma, but there is a lack of malty or grainy notes. Taste is good, with hops out in front again. I would have preferred more of a grainy dryness here as I think it's more consistent with the style. Mouthfeel is decent if a bit thinner than I would have liked. Carbonation is significant and nicely refreshing. Overall, this is a decent warm weather beer, and while I would certainly drink it again if offered, it's not something I would go out of my way to get my hands on.
