Peace Tree Brewing Company's No Coast IPA is being reviewed as an American IPA (BJCP Category 21A). This beer poured a medium-gold color with a lovely white head. The aroma was upfront hops of citrus, pine, mango and other tropical notes. It had hints of soft, pleasant maltiness behind. Any esters were totally buried in the huge hop presence. Pleasant alcohol tied the malt and hops together. The aroma was followed by a huge pine and tropical hop flavor, which was then overpowered by a huge and extremely lingering bitterness that covered almost all malt character. A lightly warming alcohol ties the components of this beer together nicely. The beer was very well made with no off flavors but is not for the weak of tongue. This is the beer for those who love extremely hoppy beers. If hops aren't your thing I would recommend trying another beer. For those who love hops, the combo of citrus, pine and tropical hop aromas and flavors are absolutely wonderful.
