Coast’s HopArt I.P.A.

1250 Second St. N. North Charleston

(843) 343-4727

Local micro Coast Brewing Co.’s David Merritt and Jaime Tenney should brag loudly about their mighty I.P.A. Medium-bodied, copper/amber in color, and full of zesty citrus flavor, the I.P.A. stands near 8 percent alcohol content by volume. It’s certainly the hoppiest, best conditioned, and most intense of their selections. It’s a drinkable, American-style version of the classic India Pale Ale.
