From a can poured in a shaker. Smells strongly of Coconut. Hits you over the head with coconut flavor. Almost like somebody spilled a jug of Hawaiian Tropic in a batch of average golden ale. Flavor is very strong and one note. Not unpleasant, but sort of gimmicky.

Tap at Sheffields in Chicago during glbtq. Hazy light orange with small white head. Light, slightly sticky with vanilla elements. A bit of a cream ale feel. A bit thin and short.

A perfect sunny day ale. Beautiful bright hue with a subtle enough coconut palate to make it drinkable and refreshing. Not perfect and definitely a first beer on a sunny day. On tap at Craftsman. Helps that it's 3:30 :-) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tastes like a bad homebrew. I don't understand the high rating. I dumped it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Poured clear golden color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Light to moderate coconut and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet fruit flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft drinkable brew.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2016 At Bigby’s Pour House. Interesting beer, cloudy light gold color. Characteristics of a mildly hopped golden ale but the coconut adds a fruity sweetness. Thankfully the coconut doesn’t add the soapy flavor that some folks who don’t like coconut attribute to the nut. The Serving: Tap

Bomber pours cloudy golden in color. Nice lacing. Aroma is sweet with a hint of color. Taste is hoppy and sweet with a mild fruity taste.

22oz bottle from West Lakeview Liquors. Marked as 7.1%ABV and 16.1IBU on the bottle. Pours a cloudy golden colored body with a thin, frothy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet and bready with a light grainy toast, honey, and a light coconut that comes out a bit more as this warms. Flavor is similar. Sweeter and bready malts with a light honey and grainy malt backing. Touches of toast and a light, buttery coconut note as this finishes sweet and bready with a somewhat dry, very light earthy bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a medium, somewhat creamy body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, an interesting golden ale. Fairly bready sweet with a bit of a honey note and the coconut adding a slight creaminess and buttery taste (not diacetyl). This was alright.
