Bomber into a Duvel Glass. Bottled 1-17-2010

A. Hazy dark Orange/Caramel color. 2 finger white head. Beautiful. Wish I could upload a pic.

S. Great hop aroma as soon as I popped the cap.

T. Delicious hops right up front with malt quickly following it up and ending with a nice dry finish.

M. Silky smooth all the way. Very satisfying.

D. Wow! What a great beer for my first review. Spent the last few days sampling many great beers, but decided HopArt was worthy of my very first review. Can't wait to serve my friends and customers Coast Beers. This is what Craft beer is about.

Finally got to try this. Poured into glass to reveal an amber orange color with perfect half inch white head. Smell is fantastic.. Pineapple and grapefruit followed by hops..taste is the same except with a subtle hint of malt to balance it out..doesn't take away from the tropical fruits at all. Finally comes the slightly bitter, crisp clean finish. All in all, a great IPA...one of my new favorites.

What can I say, FRESH is BEST. The bottle is good, but way better when the keg is less than 2 weeks old.

A: Slightly cloudy golden amber color with a nice fluffy off-white head. Moderate to heavy lacing.

S: Fragrant fruity hop scent with mild pine and citrus undertones.

T&M: Nice and smooth, tastes better than the smell. Nicely balanced with a mild taste of malts that offset the heavy hop bitterness. Hoppy, hoppy, hoppy. Medium bodied with a slight roughness due to the high hop content.

Excellent local brew in SC. I'm an IPA fan and on-tap this is definitely one of my top five!

Tasted from bottle, tap and growler.

This beer represents what all American IPA should be.

Looks perfect. Great head, nice lacing in the glass. Deep golden color with the faintest hint of amber.

Bright hoppy aromatics. Smooth, but not too smooth to boast its big Hop intensity. Notes of citrus pith and piney herbs.

Want more.

I feel that this is the perfect American IPA. Perfect, seriously. It walks the line of bordering a double IPA without really stepping onto it which also clearly defines itself well beyond American Pale Ale which not enough breweries can do.

I had this beer at Gene's Haufbrau in Charleston, SC on tap. This was my first time tasting this beer. I had read about it on BA, so it was high on my list of beers to sample. I must say, I was not disappointed.

A - Hazy orange glow. Had nearly two fingers of white head.

S - Beautiful hop aroma of citrus and grapefruit flavors.

T - Bitter, but smooth. The hops dominate at first, giving way to a carmel, malt flavor.

M - Smooth and silky.

D - Wow! It lived up to expectations. There were other beers on tap, but I had to have another pint.

Highly recommended.

poured a pint glass, nice white head with very good lacing down glass.Hazed (unfiltered) orange copper color.
Very much a hoppy beer though the malt does not take a back seat. Piney citrus with a solid biscuity aroma.
Again a very hop forward elixer that delivers on pine reson and some citrus, nice and in your face here. The malts are in this strong too, nutty toasty malt tones hold strong.With a touch of alchol before the dry bitter finish.
Nice smooth creamy oily mouthfeel on this brew.
I love this stuff, the abv is the only thing holding this back from session beer. But my god 3 or 4 pints are all the way around awesome.Coast hits'em out of the park folks, seek and drink. DO IT!!!

A great IPA!

A: It is a cloudy beer with orange tint. The off white head lingers.

S: Citrus fruits, piney and floral. (typical IPA smells)

T: The taste is very balanced between the bitterness and sweetness of the malts. It is a perfect combination and is very refreshing.

M: Carbonated, but not too much. It seems to be just right.

O: This was my first time trying Hopart and will be buying it again. It is a great IPA and it is brew locally for me which is always a plus. Anyhow if you see it give it a try. I doubt there will be any regrets.

Traded my Stone 9th Anniversary growler for a growler of this with riverjames.

A
Cloudy, orange. 1/2" head. White and thick bubbles. Looks like a hefe but darker.

S
Citrus. Delicious. Lets get it on!

T
Oh, yum. Just enough sweet. Bitter all the way through.

MF
Great, good carbonation.

D
Easily could drink a 6pack. I'd enjoy more. This was a 6 day old growler with a standard screw top. I was worried that through shipment and possible oxidation that it wouldn't taste fresh. But, it tasted very fresh.

Thank you riverjames.
