2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a nice copper color with a sturdy head. Smells promising - strong fruity/resinous hop aromas mixed with coconut. The combo almost creates an apricot type smell, pretty nice. Aaaand then I drink it - this stuff is boozy and very bitter. The creamy sweet vanilla coconut flavors don't exactly marry that well with these super bitter resinous hops. Maybe I should have sat on this one for a couple of weeks to let it die down a little? Bitter finish. Nice body/mouthfeel. It gets better the more I sip on it but overall, this one's just not for me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber. Pours a clear golden color with a huge fluffy off white head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruit, a little boozy, and subtle hints of coconut. Taste is real bitter and resinous, lots of citrus and grapefruit, with a strong sappy pine aftertaste. Unfortunately not getting any coconut in the flavor. Solid IPA nonetheless.

Draft - Orange, passion fruit and a bit of pine. Clear gold and a thin white head. Nice bitter IPA with a bit of fruit and grapefruit and the coconut adds a nice upper palate sweetness. Coconut is subtle but you get the roast, and finish is the standard Stone IPA.

Subtile unsweetened coconut. A bit of tropical fruit hops. Better in theory. Finish tastes like licking the outside of a coconut. Not as good as i was expecting.

650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a translucent new penny copper color with a small white head that recedes to a film. The aroma is soft and mild with a light citrus scent. The taste is decent bitter grapefruit hops set in a neutral malt base. I don’t get much in the way of coconut, it must be very subtle. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. The finish is long and dry with lingering grapefruit. Overall: A decent summer IPA, loved it.

Bottle shared by a coworker. Pours a golden to yellow with white head. Aroma is more tropical and bitter than any coconut. Really none until this one warms significantly. Taste is again bitter and resinous with some bitter unripe tropical fruit. The coconut is not there at all when it is cold. As it warms you get a roasted coconut like mounds bar thing going on. Nothing special.
