Appearance - amber gold pour. Finger sized head.
Aroma - slight coconut smell.
Mouthfeel - slightly creamy. Slight slight carb bite.
Flavor - slight coconut but not like you would think which is like what coconut flavoring is. Hoppy with slight bitter aftertaste.
Overall - interesting. Not sure if this will be part if my normal rotation but interesting. Surprised by the hops.

Bottle shared with my brother in law while mourning a blowout loss for our alma mater. Coconut not really present in the aroma or taste. Some fruit notes, but faint. Overall not bad.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Thanks Joel. Light orange tan color. Medium head. Mostly tropical hops with some citrus hop. Slight coconut. Big hoppy taste. Medium heavy bitterness. Needs more coconut flavor. I was excited for this one bc of the coconut. The taste is mostly stone ruination beer. Nice tropical hop flavors though. Which I canít complain about...

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy amber with a thin soapy head that faded very fast. Aroma is hops, but not much floralness going on. Taste is of mild fruitiness and hops. At first itís an indiscriminate fruit flavor with a very subtle coconut backbone. Followed by a resiny hop bitterness that doesnít really last too long. I dunno, this one didnít really do it for me. I really enjoyed drinking all of Stoneís DIPAís but the regular IPAís are kind of just meh to me. I didnít really enjoy this one; ended up passing the last quarter of the bottle to a friend.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Joes @ weekly tasting. Opaque hazy yellow color, small off - white head. Aroma is malts, hops, yeast. Taste malts, hops, bitter, a slight touch of citra hops. Quite simple but genius. I must say though, I donít get any coconut. Fortunately Iíd say. Medium body and carbonation.

Bottle: Served in a taster:
Medium to smaller white foamy lacing on top of a hazy yellow colored beer.
Aroma does remind me of a DIPA: malts, some dust and cardboard, soap, peach, cleaner, cream, some citrus, some hay.
Flavours of cream, hay, malts, grains, hops, herbs, some citrus, honey, some wood and yeast.
Aftertaste is bitter, grainy, some hops, herbs, hops and mallts.
Low carbo, cream mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller bodied and a creamy texture.

Tastes hoppy, fresh, bitter, fruity, pine.. Amazing taste. Iím quite glad I canít really taste the coconut. Medium body, soft carbo.

This is a great IPA! Just slightly bitter, the right amount to make the aromas jump out. Hints of pineapple, resin, and a bit of coconut. The coconut is very subtle. This was perfect because I was afraid the coconut was going to be overpowering. I highly recommend!
