On tap at the Louisville Beer Store. Pours hazy amber/copper with a lacy head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some light peaches and other fruit notes, some pale and caramel malts, and some light hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

dfinney23 (2257) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2013
This really makes me think of a blend of Kona Koko Brown and Kona Big Wave, which is no bad thing. Toasted coconut and tropical fruitiness. Not a great tripel, perhaps, but a tropical triumph.

Bottle shared much thanks to Ed. Pours a moderate to darker golden color with a small off white head. Aroma is of sweet malts, fruity pineapple, coconut, yeast. Taste is of light fruity sweetness, sugary coconut, some yeasty notes, mild alcohol. Unique.

dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Pours an orange gold color with a nice bright white head. The aroma is a tad funky, but clearly influenced by the peaches and a hint of the oak chips from the aging. On the palate, there’s a great mix of sweetness, countered by a mild tartness from the fruit and on the end, there’s a fattiness that is clearly reminiscent of the coconut. Weird beer, but eminently drinkable and enjoyable.
