This Brewpub Exclusive is a blondish ale brewed with coconut water, lemon zest, and toasted coconut. Many of our beers receive a dose of hops in the fermenter (a procedure called dry hopping) to supplement the hop aromas. We dry coconutted this beer with a heap of toasted coconut flakes to provide subtle hints of coconut and compliment the citrus zing that is layered on top of the smooth light base. Perfect after a hot day on the beach, this refreshing summer ale will take you away to your own private island.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear gold pour with a fizzly, thin white head. Aroma of lemons, orange, and grassy hops. Taste is somewhat pilsner-like, with a bready base and a grassy hop profile. The coconut taste and aroma are not quite as strong as I would have imagined. It does lend a nice balancing sweetness, and a mild lingering coconut aftertaste. Palate is crisp and clean. A nice summer thirst quencher.
