3.8/5 rDev -9.1%

BOD 1/28/14. Cloudy golden pour with a typical head and lacing that retains for a minute or so. The nose is a blend of citrus and pine hop aromas. Light medium body, somewhat smooth, with a touch above normal carbonation level. The flavor profile is hop forward, but with a mild bitterness. Citrus and pine hops compete for a well balanced blend over a light biscuit background. On the finish, pine predominates as it effervesces then flows into a grapefruit rind bitterness that lingers. A solid offering from Coast, but it needs more balance from the malt.

4.43/5 rDev +6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A - Pours a yellow straw color (slightly gold) with nearly a finger of near white head. Retention is ok, after about 5 minutes it is patchy and thin. Lacing is actually pretty good.
S - Lots of citrusy and slightly grassy hop notes. Some resin and light sweet caramel malts as well.
T - Lots of light citrusy delicous refreshing flavor followed by a slightly resinous hoppy dry bitterness. Citrus (lemon and orange rinds, grapefruit) and light pepper follow and transition into a nice light malty sweetness. aftertaste is dry and resinous/citrusy. Very good.
M - Lightish bodied for sure, decent carbonation, and great brisk bitterness make this a very very drinkable, great tasting, dynamic brew.
O - See Mouthfeel. Really nice refreshing flavorful bitter brew!

On tap at the brewery. Served in a taster.
Appearance - Hazy orange. Small head. Minimal lacing.
Smell - Great citrus hop aroma. Aggressive hop bomb aroma. Just a bit of malt.
Taste - Aggressive hop flavor up front. Citrusy. Simple. But nice. Grain in the middle, but it's weak by comparison. The hop flavor builds and gets very strong in the finish. Bitter and extremely hoppy in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Way too hoppy in the finish. Not necessarily over bitter, but the hop flavor gets very sharp.
Overall - Great up front but too strong in the back. I seldom wish a beer to be better balanced, but I wish this were.
Serving type: on-tap
