look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours an enticingly straw yellow with a modest pearl white head. The retention is quite pleasing for a 6.0% ABV.

S: This is a delectable surprise, considering I'm a slightly biased hop-head. If you were to smell this and not know it's a pale ale, you would probably guess this is an IPA. The hops used to make this brew are those typically found in American IPAs, and they are not shy here either. The malts add a pleasing hint of sweetness, as well.

T: Never doubt your nose. The flavor of this brew is laden with hops, but not quite as overwhelming as you would expect. The malts definitely play a more significant role by subduing the bitterness of the hops with a delightful sugary malt taste.

M: The complexity of this brew cannot be expressed enough. Even with the abundant hops it does not lie on the back of the tongue like an IPA does. A decently smooth feel that is complimented by excellent carbonation.

O: COAST is a relatively local brewery about 2 hours away, and I rarely find flaws with their brews. That being said, one should take caution with this beer because it does contain a similar IPA style. It's still quite tasty and a nice easy to drink beer, so try it out if it's available.

BOTTLED ON: 06 17 14

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.

3.8/5  rDev -10%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.
