Immediate nutty flavor with a light toasted coconut finish. Light-medium body and brown color. Refreshing and smooth. Good to drink on a warm day, especially with a beach nearby.

No head. Nice brown color. Hard to pick coconut out of aroma. I actually get a fruity note. Wonderful nutty taste with coconut at the very very end of the aftertaste. Personally, I like my coconut porter better, but this is a nice beer. Probably my favorite in the Kona lineup.

Pours brownish red. A very distinct coconut flavor along with some nuttiness. Some noble hop aromas along with sweet toffee. Taste is coconut , caramel, the perfect hop flavor, nuts, and earth. A thick mouth-feel but just right. I never figured I would like this beer but, I was wrong. This is a great beer.

12 fl oz bottle consumed on 11th Mar 2014 in my daughters place, Newport Beach during a mega holiday.
I actually quite liked this, the initial smell and taste put me off at first, but then I began to warm to it’s coconut flavours and smoothness. Different anything I can remember drinking beer wise. Good brown body, a bit cola looking, buts with a head that tries to hang around. Coconut blends in well with the malts (after the initial shock), I thought ’suntan lotion’ at first, but it mellows and balances nicely with the more normal beery ingredients.
All in all, a well made beer that sums up what most of us Brits think Hawaii would make us smell like and change our skin colour too.

Deep coconut, caramel. Caramel malt, coconut milk, roasted malt, coffee beans, nice bittersweet finish. Hawaii in a brew, almost a perfect balance for a coconut brew.

Pours like Coke. Nose of roasted coconut and light roasted nuts. Not very smooth, medium body, with pretty strong, but pleasant, coconut flavors that go quite well with this otherwise typical brown ale. The coconut flavor is that of roasted coconut rather than the raw coconut flavor I was expecting.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours dark brown with a off white head. Taste coconut, sweet, roasted malt. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.

From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear light cola brown with an off white head. Nutty aroma. Flavors of cocoa butter. Tastes nice and it might work as a sunscreen.
