3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
9th November 2013
Hazy amber beer with a big off white head. The head tastes of coconut cream! Palate is sotfish with fine carbonation. Very light coconut. Light ripe orange hops. Whisper of skunk. Nice pine. Finishes smooth and soft. Comes together well and is very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Early that evening, womencantsail went out to the bar with the suggestively dressed women and the blasphemous theme. Arriving at the bar, he saw ChinoSkillzian sitting under the big beer sign looking tired rather than exuberant in his bright white shirt. ChinoSkillzian waved to him as he entered the threshold. At the table, womencantsail found a pint of R&R Coconut IPA and sitting in front of it, noted the clear orange hue and the soft white head. He inspected its aroma with great interest, noting scents of coconut, pine, grapefruit, and tropical fruits. Without hesitation, he lifted the glass to his mouth, tilting it back to release the contents within. Flavors of bitter pine, grapefruit, and sweet coconut danced on the tongue. Sticky, almost chewy, he at least finished the gulp of this new libation.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear copper with a creamy white head. Aroma is citrus/melon. Med body. Flavor is very mixed fruit with a touch of pine. Nice caramel backbone. It is not harshly bitter, and it is not entirely dry. Dry is arguable. But the flavor is very delicious. Comparing impressions 2 of us were hard put to find coconut. Toasting coconut may mar the flavor into unfamiliarity here. Very good drink - coconut or no.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Belmont Station Bier Cafe, pours a clear golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of piney hops, subtle coconut, and some citrus. Flavour doesn’t bring out a whole lot of coconut, though it is there buried underneath the piney hops. Very bitter but refreshingly hoppy at the same time. The coconut is not too prominent, but is executed expertly subtly. Awesome IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Joes @ weekly tasting. Opaque hazy yellow color, small off - white head. Aroma is malts, hops, yeast. Taste malts, hops, bitter, a slight touch of citra hops. Quite simple but genius. I must say though, I don’t get any coconut. Fortunately I’d say. Medium body and carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured clear orange copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy west coast hop and small coconut aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture with soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle. Crystal clear amber body with medium beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some orange, light cream. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, light orange. Smooth medium body, some resin. I think I can taste the coconut very lightly, but that may just be wishful thinking. Even if I can’t, this is a tasty (double) IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
