Next Coast IPA Goose Island Brewing Review

Overall Score: 4.3 Next Coast will surprise you that it’s 7% ABV IPA based on the lack of flavor, hops, and malt. 90% of IPAs are a better option than this.


Brewery Insights: Next Coast IPA seeks to balance light bitterness with gently sweet flavors to provide a long-lasting finish. Nugget, Citra, Mosaic, and Eureka hops are used in the brewing process.


Overall Score: 4.3

Next Coast is shockingly light in appearance for an IPA and has limited maltiness. The palate matches the terrible appearance, providing a boring experience. The mouthfeel is similar to water and the hops aren’t far off. The IBU and color are a dead giveaway. It looks and tastes more like a 4% beer than a 7%. IPA drinkers should seek bolder and hoppier options, or choose not to drink altogether. Your drunk friend who just finished a 2AM bar crawl will still call you on your bullshit if you hand them this beer. Buy something else at all costs and cheers Degenerates!
