look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottled on 2/23/10. 22oz Bomber from funkadelic. Thanks Cameron! Served in a Pint Glass.

A: Pours a very cloudy golden orange. Can you say Unfiltered? A small half finger of white head vanishes quickly, leaving a spill zone behind.

S: Orange, pineapple and other citrus flavors mix with some light grassy hop notes. A little malty sweetness.

T: A nice mix of citrus and piney hops, balanced with a decent amount of malts. There's a slight bit of spicyness present as well. The bitterness really kicks on the finish, leaving a fairly strong aftertaste of grassy hops and orange zest.

M: Medium bodied. Carbonation is good, allowing a nice creaminess. Maybe a little thinner than I'd prefer.

D: Considering I just put down a bomber in under 30 minutes, this IPA is pretty drinkable. The 7.7 is bordering on a DIPA, but isn't even in the equation. Bitterness is a factor though, and my palate is pretty beat up after 22oz.

Overall a good, solid IPA. Seems to be lacking a little bit in the flavor department, as nothing really stands out.

Mikesgroove was kind enough to throw in this bonus beer in a recent trade. It's been sitting in my fridge about a week waiting for my buddies to come by and share, but I can't wait any longer to try it!

(Reviewed on the fly)

1 pint 6 fl oz bottle with a fantastic pop art label of hop buds - Andy Warhol would have been proud! Hand stamped date of the beer is marked "01-17-10". Server at fridge temp into my Lost Abbey tulip.

Poured aggressively, I see a gorgeously dark and cloudy apricot beer with a big bubbled, off-white head. Nice, sticky legs run up the sides of my glass.

I get a fresh zing of bitter grapefruit, pine needs and lemon peels when taking a deep whiff. This nose is large on this one and quite appealing!

Oddly enough, I don't get as much grapefruit and pine bitterness when tasting it. The flavors sort of dropped off and got strange on me... The beer itself starts moderately bitter. I get a watery, astringent alcohol taste at first, almost like a band aid flavor, followed by subtle orange zest. Only in the aftertaste, does the familiar grapefruit and bitterness I was expecting in the forefront. It's a rather strange sensation... I also taste the malts trying to make their presence known in a light caramel and spicy essence, but they definitely stay in the background, allowing the watery grapefruit mixture to take center stage.

The beer is considerably thick in the mouthfeel for it's single IPA style, but the carbonation is right on.

Final note regarding the taste of this beer: After smelling it and moving onto the tasting - it's almost like the bottom dropped out... The taste just wasn't on par with what I was expecting. In fact, I've had a similar sensation (though more vivid) when smelling, then tasting Stone's Levitation. Maybe the hops were fading after 2 months? This may be the case...

I drank this from a 22oz bottle into my Orval glass.

The beer pours a very murky opaque ugly light brown. There is a light white head.

The aroma is light hops along with the taste. Pretty hoppy as well.

Pretty decent overall but nothing I would search out.

A very nice IPA that shows no frills or gimicks, just plain and simple, a quintessential American delight.

A solid look of medium copper, froathy foamstance of white foam with great retention and lacing. Mild haze from dry hops. The look certainly fits the bill.

Aromas are dominated by citrus hops. Graham cracker maltiness offers a bit of a bready-sweet aroma that doesn't quite approach caramels. Alcohol and a estery mix of citrus and ethynol give some intrigue.

Flavors closely mimic the aromas: Dominated by grapefruit and orange zest, the hops take the foreground while light caramel maltiness buffers the hops and gives a sweeter and breadier taste. Hop bitterness does more than just balance the beer by showcasing the resiny a-acids that make these beers so great. light nail polish remover taste emits from the alcohols and becomes also quite bitter in the finish.

Froathy and medium bodied up front, while the malts still make a presence. But from mid palate on, the beer is all about hop bitterness and an increasing dry crispness. Finishes airy and light; kinda evaporative with only a memory of malt sweetness left on the lips.

Hop Art is what IPA's should be: A showcase for hops but with supporting malts that don't bring attention to themselves. Thanks Mikesgrove!

Bottled on 022310 on label purchased from CBX. Hazy orange pour into a Duvel stem, with a pretty two fingers of near white froth.

Bright aroma of grapefruit, very complex and deep. Dash of honey in there to counter balance the fruit.

Fragrant grapefruit-navel orange fresh hop flavor up front. A touch sweet, again citrus with a dash of tangerine. Very fresh and hop forward.

Spicy, bitter mouthfeel yet very citric. Pleasant leftover rind chewiness in the palate. A touch dry.

Bitter citric finish with an underlying maltiness which surprises me. Maybe cracker or sourdough pretzel?

Delicious, packed with flavor and very easy to drink.

From notes, had on 3/6/10 at a local DC tasting.

a - Pours a murky, pale golden color. Little head and carbonation evident.

s - A srong pine hop smell is the first thing that really jumps out at you. After that there are also traces of sweet fruits. Nice mix.

t - Taste is also very full of hops and is very bitter. Lots of pine. Not getting as much of the fruit taste in from the smell, but not bad.

m - Medium body with little carbonation.

d - Overall I thought this was an ok IPA; not bad but nothing amazing. I thought the smell was much more balanced than the the taste, and that the piney hops and bitterness dominated the taste.

Poured from a growler procured at Green's in Greenville into my old reliable New Belgium tulip glass...

appearance - a nice golden orange color with half inch bone-colored head. very nice lacing tags the side of the glass as you make your way through.

aroma - citrusy, fresh-ass hops hit you immediately. if they made a HopArt cologne, i'd live in it. grapefruit, lemon...glorious.

taste - soapy, wet hops hit the tongue. flavors of orange & pine follow. malts make an appearance as well, evening the scales, with a dry hop bitterness on the finish.

mouthfeel - full bodied and creamy. tart & bitter. sticky on the tongue.

drinkability - very high. i could knock back several of these. hops aren't so over-the-top as to make this guy a "one n' done", but there's still more than enough flavor here to keep you coming back for more.

i'm a big fan of this beer. in South Carolina, we aren't exactly used to getting beer as fresh as this, so finally getting COAST in Greenville is quite a treat. David, whatever you're doing out there in Charleston, keep it up, dude.

Murky off-orange brew has a thick white head on it with tons of grapefruit and tangerine in the aroma. Taste has a good bit of fresh earthy and leafy hops, very fresh taste. Starts citrusy before a fresh bitterness overwhelms. A nicely crafted hop bomb that doesn't overload the palate. Finish is clean and bitter. Very good beer here from a local brewery, ranks among some of the best IPAs I have had.

The appearance pours a golden color with a darker heart. It starts with a one finger head that is sticky sweet. It is a white head that does leave after a while. Medium lacing.

The smell is of marijuana, citrus hops, and more marijuana.

The taste is not really what I was expecting. This was bottled on 12-17-09, making it somewhat fresh. It has a mellow fruit flavor with some oily pine hops. Nothing outstanding, but incredibly drinkable. Maybe the freshness is playing a part, but the hops were expected to be more pronounced. Some malt sweetness in the tasting as well, paired with the oily character of the hops is very enjoyable.

The mouthfeel has oil, and I love my hop oil. It coats the mouth very nicely and creates a tongue smacking enjoyment. It is nicely carbonated.

The drinkability is good, as I can drink this bomber no problem.

Pours into my glass a super hazed dark orange with a half inch of creamy bone white head on top that leaves spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas are a mix of pine, grass and citrus upfront with herbal accents. Slightly spicy with a caramel and mild grainy kick.

First sip brings a mix of pine and citrus fruits upfront with spicy herbal hop oils. Slightly grassy it is met by a solid creamy malt featuring caramel and a light toast. Flows down and finishes with a solid bitter kick but is well balanced overall. A tasty IPA.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth with a great body that goes down easy. Overall, a tasty IPA that brings the hops but doesn't go overboard. Glad I had a chance to try it and thanks to RyanC84 for the opportunity.

A big Thanks to Mikesgroove for this beer from a brewery I've wanted to get to know a little bit better. Bottled on 12/17/09.

Coast Hop Art has a slightly hazy body that is orange at the center and golden-yellow at the edges. The head is about two and a half fingers high, white, and pretty soapy looking. The head never really dies down; it forms rocky towers and makes good rings of thick, sticky lacing.

The aroma is packed with grapefruit and citrus, some pine, some bitterness and just a touch of balancing malt. A promising aroma.

A ton of hops are packed into COAST Hop Art IPA. Tons of bitter grapefruit hops bite into the tongue. The malt is pale, a little sweet, but pretty muted, which I like. Hops, hops, some more hops. Bitter, fruity tasty.

Mouthfeel is light and well carbonated, just a touch oily.

COAST Hop Art IPA caught me by surprise with how good it is. It isn't too complex, but it's hoppy as hell and I like it.

Bottle at Woodshop 5.0. Pours a clear dark gold with a small but dense white head. Aromas of grapefruit, herbs, herb, and sourdough. Bright citrusy flavor with some sweeter hop notes. Not much malt going on here, just a pale unobtrusive backbone for the hops. Solid bitterness with a little astringency muddling the mouthfeel. Pretty good.

Poured from 22oz bottle. Thanks goes out to mikesgroove for this beer. Mike you made me quite happy with this one.

A- Pours a clear copper slight amber color. Two finger light white head stays around for good while. Lacing is thick on the sides of the glass ringing down as I drink this one down.

S- This is pretty good smelling. There is a light sweet alcohol smell that I find a little annoying. Nice floral hops in the front end of this. There is a light malty background to this....although there is also some light spicing in this. Overall this beer smells good but that damn alcohol aroma kills it a little.

T- Floral hops right off the get go. This turns into a light bitter taste as well. Some caramel malts in the middle of this. There is some light spicing in this that I almost want to say is pepperlike in flavor. There is a light almost bittering taste in the back end. Although the alcohol in the aroma comes back in the ending of the beer. It is not as bad as in the aroma but it is still a little annoying.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is good with the style. Floral notes left on the palate with some sweet alcohol taste in the aftertaste. Crisp flavors with a semi-clean taste. Overall, pretty good in the mouth.

D- This is a good drinkable beer. I really enjoy this one after the alcohol in the back dies in taste. I would love to try this one on tap someday.

22 oz bottle into a tulip glass. There is a bottling of 1/17/10 on the bottle, so I'm psyched to be getting into this one fresh. By the way, I love the label art for this one. It's some of the best that I've seen in a while.

Pours a beautiful clear coppery amber, with several stiff foamy fingers of slightly off-white foamy head. Nice rich and frothy retention to this, with a great flareup that leaves thick clumps of patchy lacing down the sides of the glass. The aroma is fresh, floral, and a little peppery smelling, with a rich blast of sharp resins and herbal character that sticks in the nose. Extra notes of citrus and malt add a touch of sweet balancing tang to the nose.

The taste literally DRIPS with hop character. Resins, oils, and spice. The flavor here is just so fresh and bright tasting, packing a LOT of hop flavor without coming off as overly harsh or bitter. Green citrus and malt gives this a silky sweetness across the back before spice and bitter grapefruit takes holds of the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a sleek and oily feel to it that is VERY easy in the mouth. I'm not getting any warmth at all here for a 8% beer and I'm really digging the mellow creaminess that pulls up the back of this as you swallow. Both greatly help take the drinkibility of this up a notch.

Wow, this is one that I've been wanting to try for a while now (especially after having had their awesome Boy King DIPA) and this did not disappoint in any way. The hop profile on this was, dare I say, almost Pliny-esque with the way that it pushed the fresh and delicious aspects of the hops to the forefront without making the drinker deal with a heavy amount of bitterness that you usually find with hop bombs of this magnitude. Packed with flavor, well balanced, and insanely drinkable, this was some fantastic stuff. One of the better American IPAs out there IMHO. Freshness seems key with this one and I can't wait to seek this out on draft next time I'm down in the Charleston area.

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.

Poured from a bomber into a mug.

Light orange/amber pour. Finger of off-white foam retains pretty well. Nice sheets of lacing.

Floral/citric hop aroma. Citrus rind and pine. Sweet malt gives the nose a nice all-around balance.

Very balanced flavor. Not one thing in particular stands out, but all are well-represented. Lots of big flavors. Lasting rind-y bitterness.

Medium body. Hefty IPA. Low carbonation level. Smooth, slick, oily hop texture.

Balance makes it a very easy drinker. I've said in other reviews that a particular beer may be "too balanced," thus canceling out key flavors. HopArt, however, puts everything in its right place. ABV is never noticeable. All in all, a tasty easy-drinking IPA. Very solid effort from COAST.

Thanks to a generous trader!

Pours a bright orange-y color. About two inches of white foam head.

Smells slightly of floral notes, some dank pine, and a bit of orange. Not much grapefruit, if any. Kind of an unusual IPA.

Taste is also unusual, though pleasant enough. Some pine, a bit of mineral-y dankness, a splash of generalized citrus, some bitterness. It's a pleasing enough mix.

Nice juicy mouthfeel.

Another Coast Brewing brew, thanks Chris.

This bottle was brewed on 12.17.09 I find the labels this brewery affixes to their bottles to be fantastic. This particular bottle is very Andy Warholesque. Colorful pop art in the name of hops, come on!

A: The body of this beer is so full murky the light hardly shines through despite it not being of a dark color. Dark Orange in the center with accents that shine on the outside of the pint glass. The head was not huge, but enough carbonatiion and I'd hope so with a beer this fresh, a moon-like cratered surface remains. Lacing better than the Kölsch as well.

S: Malty sweetness, primarily resiny hops, a touch of grapefruit, alcohol not so noticable.

T: Delicious AIPA with a malt bill that does a good job of masking some of the alcohol on the tongue. Up front this beer is where the resiny hops are most noticeable in flavor. This resin is followed by a tangerine like earthy sweetness that comes to a nice sharp peak before fading into tongue numbing bitterness. Not a giantly hopped tearjerking IPA, but throw in the resiny and very earthy with the right malt...I can't complain.

M: The beer is medium bodies with enough carbonation to billow if you hold in on the palate. Really coats the mouth for a brief period without get annoying.

D: I want to keep drinking this beer, beautiful looking beer and bottle makes the presentation look impressive. The flavor and mouthfeel are not lacking either. This may be the best "organic" beer I've tasted, but I wish the ABV was at a solid 6%...then I guess there is the problem of obtaining it again. Solid brew, respect the south ya'll.

Fresh and on-tap on a recent visit to Charleston, SC. From notes.

Nice rich, amber-honey with great heand and carbonation. Really impressive. Serious hops in the aroma, lots of pine resin and grapefruit with biscuit malts right behind. The hops are just so fresh, moisty and sticky! Extremely drinkable, and shockingly good. Seek this one out, the hoppy beers are the star of the COAST lineup, not blackbeerd. I am infinitely jealous that charleston has this on tap.

22oz into a snifter. Bottled less than a week ago on 1/17/10.

A: Ruby red grapefruit with a healthy head and lots of lacing. I am almost finished and the head has survived the entire 22oz.

S: Sweet, resin-like hops. Very earthy.

T: Brief initial sweetness then very bitter hops. Lots of grapefruit bite in the mouth. Finish is very dry, this is quite a hoppy beer. Reminds me a little of Ruination, but not quite that bitter.

M: Nice carbonation, solid mouthfeel.

D: Drinkability is decent, but the bitterness will take a toll on your palate. I think I need some water before my next pour.

I'm grateful to have tried this one so fresh. It is an excellent beer, and I think it would fit better as a DIPA than an American IPA. Its ABV (7.7%) matches other well known DIPAs, and the flavor will easily match up to the big boys.

Courtesy of mikesgroove (thanks!). Bottled on November 26th, 2009. Poured from a 22oz bomber into my Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.

Glowing, cloudy gradient from gamboge to amber in the glass. A trembling finger of soapy white foam adheres doggedly to the surface, tossing up emotive fractals of lacing which remain behind after the tears slide back down in sheets.

Moderate hop aromatics, mostly woodsy, pine with a hint of citrus. Straight-ahead and pure.

Initial white honey on the palate absorbed rapidly by a bitter grapefruit and earth note. White wine. Bready grassy finish - very dry. Nicely balanced. Not really of either the East Coast or West Coast schools of the style. Super clean.

Smooth, almost medium-bodied, crisp, slightly puckering from the bitterness. ABV well integrated.

A bit one note, but really tasty.

bottled 11.26.09

appearance: cool label - poured into my tyranena pint, lighter body - hazy straw-yellow, foamy white crest with light retention

smell: definitely aggressively hopped, citrus peel, grapefruit bitterness

taste: nice ipa - prickly hops, resinous pine, bitter white grapefruit, caramel malts behind the scenes but this one is definitely a hop bomb. pulpy and enjoyable - a little rough around the edges but uper echelon

mouthfeel: strong bitterness, slick and oily

drinkability: good

Bomber with a bottled on date of 11/26/09, poured into a Duvel tulip.

Hazy caramel/orange body with an initial 1.5 finger off-white head that reduces fairly quickly, yet still manages to leave some lacing.

Aromas are a little tame for my liking, but certainly pleasant. Citrus and floral notes at first, becoming strongly grassy as it warms up. Plenty of bready malt.

Lots of pine flavor right away, although oddly I didn't pick up much in the nose at all. Sharp grassy bitterness as well, especially at the finish. Medium-thick bodied with moderate healthy dose of carbonation and a bready malts. The overall flavor profile is at least briefly fairly aggressive, a nice surprise after the tame bouquet. After the swallow, the pine stings for a moment then disappears suddenly. The lingering finish is quite dry with some husky grain notes. There's an element of creaminess that seems to aid in blunting some of the hop bite.
Overall impression: Decent IPA, although a bit on the mild side.

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.
