2013 bottling in bomber format poured into a Duvel tulip. Hazy straw-colored body with a touch over a one-finger white head. The head dissipates relatively quickly but leaves a bit of lacing.
Tropical aroma immediately, but not necessarily coconut. More like mango and pineapple with a touch of maple syrup.
The flavor is very different than the aroma as a definite piney hop bitterness blends in prominently. The aforementioned aromas mix with a very light touch of coconut to balance the pine notes. Definitely a different tasting IPA.
Medium mouthfeel with prominent hop oil texture. Overall, this is different but not great in my book. But, that's OK with me since I like to see breweries try new stuff.
