4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a clear pale golden with a resilient white head. Aroma is roasty, floral and hoppy. Flavor is oranges, mangoes, citrus and all sorts of fruits. Finish is very hoppy: herbal, lots of citrus, especially lime. Some coconut. Lingering fruity, hoppy bitterness. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation. Pretty solid.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle rated on 8/30/13 - This copper-amber brew has a lingering off-white head and a nice grapefruit aroma. The flavor is high on the bitterness as expected. There’s some citrus right away and a little coconut as it warms. It’s medium to full bodied with a bitter hop finish. Is it good? Certainly. For a "coconut" beer it could use more coconut though.

Bottle. Clear dark golden color with ivory head. Dank hop, pale malt, coconut aromas. Medium body with soft carbonation. Lightly sweet pale malt flavors with some dank earthy hoppage--not any coconut in the flavor___ not bad tho

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
What an awesome, yet odd, yet totally awesome idea. Lots of tropical hops all over, with tiny tiny hints of coconut meat in the mid-palate and towards the finish. Many have mentioned no coconut. I found this hiding in the sides of my mouth, a slight hint on the nose, and very faintly underneath the hops in the finish. Definitely could’ve been more, but was noticeable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Pale orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of white grapefruit, pale and caramel malts, and sesame seeds. Flavors are of tired sweet orange and grapefruit, along with more heavy pale malt and toast, and maybe a bit of coconut meat? A bit heavy on the palate. A bit stale, although not all that old.

Kind of odd but not unpleasant...first sip tasted more like tea than beer. Not much coconut flavor to be found.
As you were.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looked, smelled and tasted good enough for an IPA. But as many others have said, there is no discernible presence of coconut at all. Kind of disappointing when you go into it expecting some coconut aroma or taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Aroma is a real piney hop. Appearance is a cloudy gold with a creamy head. Taste taste is hoppy tat is followed by a sweet earthiness, followed by a fresh, skunky hop flavor. Palate is a muted hops. Overall, a decent beer.

Very enjoyable IPA with a bit of pine and definite juicy citrus notes. However, didn’t really pick up on the coconut.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[My bottle (660ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel] Pours a deep orange with an average size semi-lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of resiny hops mainly along with some tropical fruit and biscuity malt -- I don’t get any coconut in the aroma. Flavour, again of resiny hops and tropical fruit but I do get a hint of coconut and the finish is long and bitter. Medium bodied. Coconut or not, this is a fantastic IPA.
