Bottle... Pours clear and amber with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma comes through with - BAM! - loads of toasted coconut. Don’t like coconut? More for me. A lot of similarities with raw oak treatments here. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with zippy carbonation. Both the flavor and crisp, but lengthy finish are all about the coconut and the cleanly brewed, well-balanced platform upon which it stands. South Florida in a glass!

12 oz can. Poured medium amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma: toasted coconut and bread with artificial coconut and some booziness. Flavor: follows aroma. Feel: medium body and carbonation.

blipp (6326) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Draft at Sharkeys. Pours gold with a white head. Nice piña colada coconut sweetness on a pale malty base. Doesn’t finish too sweet or cloying. Pretty good.

DiarmaidBHK (3524) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Can from Total Wine Boca Raton. Pours golden with a thin white head. A bit of coconut on the nose. Subdued coconut on the tongue which feels kind of artificial. finishes clean. Eh!

jsquire (3551) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Golden beer with a foamy white head and a sweet coconut nose. I really liked this fascinating use of coconut. Sweet coconut flavor over a light pale ale, with some bread and citrus hops. Finishes with a nice coating of coconut. This would be great on the beach.

Suttree (5256) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Sampled at Sierra Nevada Beer Camp at Mills River. This kind of ended being one of our favorites. Big coconut aromas and flavors mixed a subtle caramel, toasty malt notes. Really nice, easy to drink. Might be a gimmick, sure, but it was good...

jbruner (2477) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Poured from the can at Beer Camp Across America southeast. A nice clear golden color with fluffy white head. Definitely coconut forward, but not crazy over the top sweet. Better than its rating on here.

I’m not normally into blondes packing big rods but this one was pretty good. If you don’t like coconut, stay far away from this one.

Block (1489) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 10, 2014
This beer was interesting. Sweet with lots of coconut flavor. Had a rum character to it. Almost felt infused with coconut spiced rum. Refreshing and fitting for the setting.

Can, thanks AJ. Hazy dark gold color. Aroma is toasted coconut. Taste is toasted coconut. Weird aftertaste. Really thin palate. Overall pretty tasty stuff
