3.81/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottled on 7/22/13
Poured into the Sierra Nevada/Dogfish IPA glass.

Appearance:(4)
Pours a lightly, hazy but mostly clear gold with a towering 3 fingers tall white head. The head has great retention and as it slowly recedes, it leaves some nice lacing along the edges of the glass.

Aroma: (4)
Absolutely bursting with tropical, sweet smelling hops; notes of mangoes, berries, peach, light melon, and tangerine juice. As the beer warms up, a deeper more resinous hop presence surfaces with some more traditional IPA hop character that is mostly grapefruit and pine. Underneath the hops, there is a light bready malt presence and only the faintest suggestion of toasted coconut.

Taste: (3.75)
Immediately, you're palate hit with waves of hops; The hops are much more juicy in nature than in the nose; Big juicy grapefruit flesh, peach, orange rind as well as pine resin. Behind the pungent punch of hops, there is a chewy, slightly sweet malt backbone. The beer finishes dry and pretty bitter. The finishes leaves lingering impressions of grapefruit peel, pine and light, bready malt. There is little to no coconut flavor, as the beer warms, you can detect only a whisper of toasted coconut.

Mouthfeel: (3.75)
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: (3.75)
Overall, this is a very solid IPA, it has a lot of what I look for in a modern hoppy IPA; the juicy tropical hops, light bready malt backbone that allows the hops to really jump off and explode onto your palate. If this wasn't supposed to be a "Coconut" IPA, I'd rate it a tad higher.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pour is transparent t golden Amber with a tight creamy head. Nose is aggressively bitter, citrus and grapefruit with some bready malt. Taste follows suit, a little less bitter and sweet, cleaner hop profile. Medium body and assertive carb, dry finish.

Serving type: on-tap

3.59/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 2.75

Appearance - a cloudy pour, a thick finger of dense, rocky foam. Lots of stick and lace, mmmm.

Aroma - grapefruit juice, slightly piny and some light orange. A hint of biscuity malt in the background.

Taste - malty underpinning, brief sweetness quickly washed away by pithy bitterness. Mango and grapefruit in the exhale breath, a challenge to pick out with the loads of bitterness in play. Green earthy notes mid-palate has me wondering if that is the coconut. The aftertaste and finish go a bit too medicinal for my tastes, but some lingering citrus notes offset it a little. Ends dry, a bit harsh, and at no time was I aware of any typical coconut flavor. Still, a hefty IPA worth a go for hopheads who like paying $7+ a bottle.

Mouthfeel - good and weighty, very fluffy with carbonation, fairly ideal for the style as IPAs should refresh and perk up the palate as the hops scrape 'er down.

Overall - with a more malty presence and some detectable coconut, this could be on my short list but I was disappointed on this one.
