Clear golden color with a bit of white head. Nothing much on the aroma, just some clean malt and a light hoppiness. Taste follows, light, clean, very much resembles a lager but with a more intense hoppy bitterness. A light and clean tasting beer but nothing to remember.

A. It looked good slight off yellow color a little darker than I assumed. S. Smelled of light hops and mild citrus, some grassy smell too. T. Tasted OK to good, a little too much like Two Hearted Ale I'm not a fan of that flavor. That's just me.F. had a real good smoothness to it with a little sour bite at the end. O. Third Coast Beer is a fine beer, a little off of the style. I wouldnt buy it again, but I would drink it.

On cask (?!) at Dressel's pub. Pours golden, slow to fade off white head. Somewhat sweet malts, almost fruity, crisp hoppy bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, from the cask pour. A solid beer for a weekend afternoon, especially to introduce someone to craft beers

Had a bottle of this today.

Look: hazy golden color with white head & thin lacing
Smell: citrus, hops, spice
Taste: tasty! citrus & hops
Feel: medium body & carbonation

Overall: not very complex, but still a good IPA.
