4.43/5  rDev +5%
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!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours cloudy light gold. Big fluffy white head leaving excellent retention and some clumps of lacing.

Lots of dank resiny hops with some floral and citrus notes as well. A bit of a bready malt profile, but mostly hops.

Lots of bright citrus up front. The dank piney hops comes through more in the finish. A little bit of bready malt, but this one is decidedly west coast style.

A medium body with a touch of creaminess. A bit high on carbonation, but with the lighter profile it'll do.

Wonderfully easy drinking beer. Very much enjoyed this one.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

22oz bottle into a pint glass
Bottled on 1/8/13, so, pretty fresh

A: Pours a slightly hazy dark straw yellow. The color isnt that appealing but there is a huge 3plus fingers width of dense, sea foam white colored head, that has great retention. Leaves some thick segmented rings of lacing.

S: Big dank resinous hop notes, juniper, a hint of mint, very herbaceous. There are some light citrus notes in there as well, hints of bready malt. Smells amazing.

T: More citrusy than the nose implies. Citrus upfront, with piney bitterness and lemon zest on the finish. A touch of malt sweetness. Some tropical fruit notes, and the dank resinous characters that are all over the nose.

M/D: Pretty smooth, full bodied for a pale, carbonation is a touch high but appropriate. Drinkability is excellent.

O: Overall, another delicious offering from COAST. Call me a COAST fanboy if you want, but Im continually impressed but how they never seem to miss the mark, and just consistently pumped out well above average beers. Recommend.
