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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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,

Almost be better to not know there’s coconut, but knowing makes me want to try it. the subtlety of it in the flavor, the way it complemented the woodsy hops, no clashing., but maybe a little surrender by the hops a toasty aroma, with plywood, & non-maple syrup. looks decent. crisp in the mouth.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smelled very floral and hoppy. It was one of those beers that got better as it warmed up a little. I couldn't taste coconut at first but started to get a little when it warmed up at the front.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden color with just enough head for an IPA. Smells of floral aroma hops. Flavor is characteristic of a delicious IPA with bitterness upfront leaving your mouth dry in the backend craving another drink. The coconut is not very prevalent. Just an unoticeable hint of coconut in the backend. But I wouldn’t have noticed I’d it wasn’t in the name

Where’s the coconut? If you’re going to advertise a flavor why not incorporate it into the beer. Just a thought. Poured hazy yellow/amberish with an off white foamy head. Aroma of orange and lemon. Flavor with much of the same. A little sweeter than the aroma would suggest. Overall a balanced regular IPA.
