This is my first review. I have been into the scene for about a year and a half. I have been to a handful of events, tried some rare and sought after brews like KBS, CBS, PtE, Hopslam, etc, this beer was the first one I said yes, this is what I've been looking for. I bought a growler from CBX 4/5/10, to consume while watching the NCAA championship game. I finished it in a hour and half, which gives me concern about my alcohol intake. The beer is AWESOME.
A- I would say a little lighter than what I expected.
S- Wonderful, smelled delicious hops, a ton of citrus, even some peach, somewhere in there.
T- Trully world class. I had a 90 minute about 13 days old as well, I thought BoyKing blew it out of the water. I'm partial to citrus taste in my IPA, Boy King hit the spot.
M-Perfect for this awesome SC spring weather. Refreshing and not heavy.
D-Scary is all I can say. At almost 10%, I just wanted more and more, and I obliged. I know I shouldn't session it the way I did, but I literally couldn't stop drinking it.
I know COAST is in Charleston, I have had some of their offerings, HopArt, Blackbeard, 32/50, Redlegs all very good, but I could think of others I liked more. Not Boy King, It is my new favorite brew, and am counting down the hours to make the 30 minute drive to CBX to get another, perhaps 2.
