22 ounce bottle - $7.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a bright, clear, yellow-orange body with a hefty, foaming, whitish head. Moderate lacing.
Smell: Pale malts, bready, a bit cookie-hinting before the stronger, more fragrant hops hit the nose -- fresh flowers, citrus fruits, mango. The coconut addition remains rather delicate, timid even.
Taste: Lightly bready pale malts with a touch of sugar cookie to it, though, don't get me wrong, there's very little sweetness present. Floral, lemony hops, also a bit of additional tropical fruit, even some apricot. Brightly bitter throughout. The coconut remains regrettably subtle. A little toastiness and coconut peeks through on the dry, bitter, acidic finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Slightly oily on the tongue.
Overall: Pass. I was left wanting more coconut flavor as very little showed up in the final product, at least for me.
Serving type: bottle
