3.55/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A- Pours a crisp, clear, full golden color with about 1.5 fingers of dense, frothy head. Retention and lacing are both stellar. The look of the beer in the glass, given that it has fruit involved can only be described as juicy.

S- Signature Stone IPA aromas going on here. Big hops up front with a predominantly floral, tropical scent. Coconut makes a brief, subtle appearance in the form of a hint of fruity sweetness. Really more fruity than bitter on the nose.

T- Holy mother of hops! Stinging, dominant hops bitterness right up front on the tip of the tongue. No need to work this back towards the back of your tongue to capture the bitterness, this one destroys the whole palate throughout. Towards the middle to end of the drink, the coconut makes a small and secondary appearance through the hops bitterness. The end returns to a vicious, resiny bitterness that lingers.

M- It's highly carbonated and smooth, but damn, the hops just obliterate the tongue. I may have a hard time finishing the bomber, not due to alcohol, just due to the bitterness.

Overall, wow. Interesting concept, ok beer. This is a hop head's dream. Might be the most bitter beer I've ever tasted. I think this has potential with the correct amount of hops.

Color- unfiltered honey. Slight head.

Aroma- mildly hoppy yet sweet.

Taste- A buttery and mellow IPA. Imagine the best qualities of Stone and Dogfish combined - with a mellow finish and a faint coconut hint in the aftertaste. I was skeptical about coconut as an adjunct but this works wonderfully.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted on 9/28/2013.

3.6/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22oz bomber into pint glass. The first pint had a sharp hop taste that didn't allow me to taste any of the tropical fruits or coconut. The second pint poured a bit warmer which probably helped. By the end of the second pint I could actually taste the tropical flavors. I would recommend drinking it a bit warmer than your normal IPA to bring forward the flavors.

Overally I'm glad I tried it, but won't be buying it again.
