pours gold with a thin white head. Aroma is coconut and burnt plastic. Taste follows, artificial coconut with a astringent note. pretty rough

can. Deep golden with one finger head. While not as bad as the IPA, there’s not much going on here. Light caramel body, coconut. Generally underwhelming.

355ml can brought to me from Florida. Pours a clear orange/yellow with a thick off white head. Aroma is...coconut. It literally smells like a freshly cracked coconut. Taste is...coconut. Nothing but coconut. If there is a beer in here, I can’t find it. And a coconut after taste...imagine that. It’s an interesting beer, and would likely best be enjoyed on a hot day at the beach. I think it could be improved by giving a bit more of a malt backbone for the coconut to grow on. Not really my style, but good.

radagast83 (5417) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2015
12oz can. Poured a slightly hazy orange color with a medium fizzy white head. Aroma was some light coconut notes, some light malts. Flavor was light coconut, perhaps a bit artificial, but alright. Drinkable.

Bottle... Pours clear and amber with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma comes through with - BAM! - loads of toasted coconut. Don’t like coconut? More for me. A lot of similarities with raw oak treatments here. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with zippy carbonation. Both the flavor and crisp, but lengthy finish are all about the coconut and the cleanly brewed, well-balanced platform upon which it stands. South Florida in a glass!

12 oz can. Poured medium amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma: toasted coconut and bread with artificial coconut and some booziness. Flavor: follows aroma. Feel: medium body and carbonation.

blipp (6709) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Draft at Sharkeys. Pours gold with a white head. Nice piña colada coconut sweetness on a pale malty base. Doesn’t finish too sweet or cloying. Pretty good.

DiarmaidBHK (3680) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Can from Total Wine Boca Raton. Pours golden with a thin white head. A bit of coconut on the nose. Subdued coconut on the tongue which feels kind of artificial. finishes clean. Eh!

Golden beer with a foamy white head and a sweet coconut nose. I really liked this fascinating use of coconut. Sweet coconut flavor over a light pale ale, with some bread and citrus hops. Finishes with a nice coating of coconut. This would be great on the beach.
