4.95/5 rDev +13.8%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
UPDATE: The local Green's got another keg and I got 2 growlers. This stuff is the nectar of gods. I had to up my review because I was getting over a cold on the first review and this is probably THE BEST DIPA EVER!
Poured from a growler into a tulip glass. Growler purchased at Green's Discount in Columbia, SC.
From their website, a correction to the ABV should be 9.7%;
Ingredients: 2-Row*, Munich* and Wheat* Malt, Citra, Chinook, Nugget, Cascade, Centenniel and Columbus Hops. *denotes organic ingredient
9.7% abv. Seasonal- Spring
A: Cloudy amber color with a nice fluffy off-white head. Moderate lacing.
S: Citrus hops are prominent. Mixture of sweet citrus and floral scents. Some underlying pine hops are also present.
T&M: Mixture of floral, pine, and citrus hop flavors with a strong mildly sweet malt presence. Fades to a slightly bitter, resiny flavor. Medium to heavy body. Very smooth with a bit of a fluff from the carbonation. Actually, as the temperature of the beer warms, the carbonation also lightens dramatically. It may be that my fridge is too cold?
This stuff is excellent considering the ABV and how the alcohol is completely masked by the well-balanced taste. Definitely worth trying and Coast really needs to consider offering this year round if it isn't in the works already!

4.21/5 rDev -3.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Bottled 4/24 and poured into my Teku...
A - Dark orange appearance, super sticky lace is all over the glass throughout consumption
S - Nice floral aroma, some muted cluster of fruits, grass and very dank
T - Citra wallops you in the face, grapefruit, oranges and the malt backbone is pretty significant
M - Medium body, mild carbonation, decent hop bite on the palate
O - This is a pretty great DIPA, which seems to be the common saying these days. I love the citra and malt combination as they balance each other out greatly both upfront and on the finish. Excellent beer.

3.88/5 rDev -10.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Poured from the bottle into a small snifter.
A: Rich golden color with a short light tan head. Very honey-blonde in appearance.
S: Big juicy hop aroma with some caramel and light fruit.
T: Lots of citra hop flavor and some caramel with a lasting bitterness that isn't overpowering; plenty of fresh juicy fruit notes.
M: Smooth and semi-sweet with a dry, slightly bitter finish.
O: This was a very fresh bottle, less than three weeks old and I was very impressed. I am not typical an IPA fan, let alone DIPA, but I would drink this again in a heart beat. Gotta love those big citra-hop beers!
