3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a transparent orange with foamy white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells solid; hoppy with notes of pale malt and mild coconut. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. A subtle but interesting take on the style.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden pour with offwhite sudsy head. Bitter suntan lotion. Hop oily, and the hint of coconunt is definitely there. Citrus grapefruit and catalope notes. Enjoyed quite a bit, but the overly bitter grassy finish kinda ruined it for me. It would have been better with a sweeter, cleaner finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tropical notes on nose. More tropical fruit in the body. Add some nice hops. Coconut was light, almost a coconut oil taste. Nice

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The key question in this beer has to be, what do you make of the coconut. Among those who were drinking this with me, as with those who have rated it, some find it, and some don’t. I found the flavor, but it wasn’t very strong...an essence in the aroma, a few suggestions in the flavor. But it was a fine golden IPA in its own right, and that redeems it at some level. Had it been over the top, that would have been bad, too; but it is so hard to say when it it is enough. I don’t think they got there. Bottle.

On tap at Bricks. Clear Amber with tan head that dissipates. Aroma is tropical fruit, coconut, slight toasted malt, lemon kicking through. Taste is light tropical with toasty malt and coconut, stone fruit pushes in, ends with a lemony bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at B2 Taphouse. Solid IPA with grapefruit, Tropical fruit, pine and caramel. Dry bitter finish. If you want it bad enough you can find the coconut on the backside.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a nice, deep orange color with a lacing white head. Nice, hoppy presence with a slight hint of coconut. Crisp, hoppy flavor with some citrus and grapefruit notes. Not much on the coconut front but it’s there in the finish. Really interesting brew, but good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Proof. Clear deep golden pour with a fluffy white head that laces. Tropical fruit hop aroma papaya, sweetened coconut milk with a touch caramel maltiness. Smooth slightly sweet malt entry flavor with coconut milk, pineapple and papaya fruitiness, ending on a bitter hop note. Body is kind of silky and carbonation is silky. Pretty tasty beverage that I enjoy in this Florida heat.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear amber with a thick white head.
Smells very hoppy with some slight fruitiness
Tastes- Super hoppy and piney. There is a very slight hint of sweetness that usually isn’t in IPAs but it didn’t taste like coconut at all to me.
Mouthfeel- Mediuk body with high carbonation. Very refreshing mouthfeel.
OVerall- Not an IPA guy but this is probably the best one I can remember having,
