3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a white head. Floral and fruity aroma, lightly tropical, a touch grassy, papaya, light malt and a decent amount of alcohol for the abv. Floral, slightly sweet coconut when searched for. Flavors show a great IPA, floral, tropical fruit, guava, but it is really lacking on the coconut. Medium bodied, off-dry, fruity. Its a good IPA base, but lacking on the coconut, especially compared to another Coconut IPA released in SoCal in the last several months.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Congregation in Azusa, CA. Clear, medium orange pour with larger buttermilk head. Great retention and lace. Nose is sticky orange, sweaty/salt, butterscotch, dark sugar. Taste is butterscotch, mild bitterness, no coconut sadly. Palate is bitter, nutty, aggressive with just a touch of vegetal density in nose and taste. The base IPA is solid but the coconut is completely absent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour from 22 oz bomber. Pours a amber orange with a small white head which fades to very little lacing. Aroma is of citrus, sweet malts, pine, dank hops, tropical fruits, and very faint coconut. Taste is citrus, pine, tropical fruits, sweet malts, and some light coconut. Has a medium-full body with a semi creamy body with a semi dry, pretty bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty IPA that would be even better if there was more coconut.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden pour with white foamy bubbly head. Aroma is lots of tropical fruits and slight coconut. Taste is super bitter and tropical with a slight sweetness. Wish there was more coconut in the finish but overall its still quite nice. Minutes later, I can still taste the bitterness on the back of my tongue.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Liquid appeared a shiny gold brass hue while a small delicate marshmallow foam head rested atop. Aroma is big and bold with a whiff of coconut water combined with a soft addition of skunky chronic like hops. The drink is crisp and clean with high quality ingredients such as a spicy bitter green hops that aren’t overpowering while a kiss of artificial coconut butter really makes things strange yet interesting. The malts are also apparent and really hold things in the balance on this COCO IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. It pours a really clear golden orange with an off white head. The aroma has peaches, pineapple some caramel and noticeable coconut. The flavor is malty with strong fruity hop flavor and more coconut before the bitterness overpowers it in the finish. Pretty drinkable and tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Fairly clear golden pour with some head and little retention. Nose of citrus, pine, and hops. Taste of grapefruit, citrus peel, pine, and floral hops. Bitterness throughout with very little sweetness. Coconut is not noticeable at all. Good IPA if you like hop bitterness throughout with very little sweetness. I went into it thinking coconut would be very present and its far from that

22oz bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Good lacing. Pine, citrus and tropical notes but not much coconut flavor. Finishes very bitter which lingers. Pretty good IPA just was hoping for more of a coconut presence.
