3.71/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

22oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter

A: Blonde copper color with a great head on the pour.

S: Sweet citrus with lots of blended pine.

T: Weird pine taste that leaves a weird pine aftertaste. It would seem that the coconut flavor synergizes pretty badly with the pine notes. I'm not sure I would pick out coconut as a flavor if I didn't already know it was in there. However, I wonder if they roasted the coconut at all. You can only get a tiny hint of the coconut. I really wonder what kind of coconut they used, the stereotypical shredded coconut that everyone identifies as being the flavor or if they used coconut flakes which is more of the flavor that I get here and doesn't taste like what you think of as coconut, but tastes much better and isn't as strong and overpowering. It really is a big pine bomb.

M: Nice even carbonation that is quite good. Prickly goodness.

O: Like every IPA that Stone puts out, this one has a great smell, appearance and mouthfeel.

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.
