look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Pours an amber/copper color with an off white quarter inch head, some lacing, and carb action.

Has a fresh cut hoppy smell with some sappy resinous pine aroma.

Taste is well balanced with a moderately sweet/acidic malt and lots of hoppiness. A fresh moderately dry bitterness with some astringency and a light grassy carbonation crispness.

Medium bodied, slightly syrupy texture, soft and lively carbonation, and a smooth slightly metallic/astringent/alcoholic finish.

Drinkability is excellent with a comfortable hoppy aftertaste this brew is well balanced and at the top of session IPA's.

Another artisanal ale from Coast Range, this one billed as an American Hop Farm Ale. In case you were wondering, an oast is a kiln used to dry hops.

Pours a shiny dark reddish gold. Nice sticky French Vanilla colored head.

Hop scent is citrusy, with just the barest hint of malt in there.

A blast of hop bitterness is there in all it's tongue coating glory, the oily resin washed away by a light caramel malt sweetness.

If I had more than this single bottle, this brew would totally be on the list for a quick hop fix.

This is definitely something different- a "rustic" IPA that can hold it's own with the best California has to offer.

22 oz bomber picked up at Bev Mo.

Glassware - Red Car Pint

Pours a light orange with tints of light red peaking through. The light tan head forms up quick, but dissapates just as fast. As I swirl the beer around, the lacing doesn't cling to the sides of my glass at all.

The smell is fruity and a bit sweet. Not picking up much of the piney hops that I'm used to in my West Coast IPAs, but I wasn't expecting much since most of Coast Range's beers are not that "intense".

The taste is more like a pale ale to me. The grapefruityness of the hops do come through a bit more than I thought but still lack that harsh bitterness that I like. A nice rye bread touch sneaks in and the finish is clean and crisp.

An OK beer that I would probably not buy it again.

Copper brown color, small white foamy head. Aroma is malty and a touch hoppy. Roasted malts and slightly sweet, this medium bodied IPA is only mildly hoppy. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is a little watery and kind of weak. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
