A: Tangerine orange/amber gold color under a pleasantly foamy off white head. Lace forms in patchy blotches as the head recedes into a bubbly ring and foam pile at the center.

S: Aroma brings all sorts of fruity/hoppy Spring friendly goodness. Floral...wild flowers/dandelions, melon, peach, passionfruit, and sweet grapefruit. Nice grainy and biscuity malts all over.

T: First thing you notice is the extreme dryness. Then comes grassy, fruity, citrus, and coniferous vegetation. Good chewy malts under frosty hop crystal bitterness.

M: Dry and smacky. Nice fine carbonation. Chalky....

O: Great beer but maybe too dry.

Foggy gold color with a white head that settles as a cap of soapy bubbles. Fresh, light hoppy aromas: grassy, light citrus, and peppery melons with some sweet grain here and there not unlike hot wort. Hoppy flavor as well, tasting green and fresh with grapefruit, apricot, tea, and a dark green pine note that suggests Simcoe. Super crisp and dry with a solid bitterness. Nothing incredible, but very solid and well-made. Hoppy without straying too close to IPA territory.

A bottle from Greenville Beer Exchange. A great pale ale- almost perfectly balanced. Nicely hoppy, slightly sweey and juicy, very smooth- moreish. Just delicious all around. This is one of those beers whose quality sneaks up on you- I really wish I had bought multiple bottles. Another fine piece of work from COAST.
