Coastal Empire Beer Co. Inshore Slam
Coastal Empire Beer Co. Inshore Slam is an American IPA, no ABV, no package date.
The beer pours with a slightly hazy golden color and a solid off white head that fades relatively quickly. The aroma is pleasant but a bit malt forward, I’m enjoying a some excellent sweet caramel malt and a few fruity notes of melon and mango. Surprisingly the taste doesn’t carry the same sweet malt flavor, there is a nice biscuit malt backbone to the beer though. The hops are bright and fruity with a hint of mint and garlic/green onion, maybe a touch heavy on the pure bitterness for my tastes.
This is a solid IPA, I’d certainly order this again.
