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

From a 650 ml bottle into a tulip. No date on the bottle that I could find.

A-A normal pour produces about two-fingers of dense, nearly-white head with good retention. The head drops slowly and leaves a good bit of lacing. The brew is mostly clear and gold in color. There is a bit of soda-pop-like carbonation.

S-The aroma is very tropical with mango, sweet citrus, floral flavors, and a bit of pineapple to go with some pale, doughy malt base flavors. I get very little coconut, but every two or three swigs, I detect a little whiff of milkiness that I can only assume is the coconut coming through.

T-The taste tracks the smell pretty closely. Lots of tropical fruit in what is an above-average IPA. The bitterness is moderate at first and then re-appears on the finish to dry things out. Malts are pale and doughy, and provide some good balance. The coconut is very light with only a bit of milky flavor up front and a light toasted flavor on the finish.

M-The feel is pretty soft and the beer is medium in body. The finish is drying.

O-I was curious to see how the coconut would play with IPA flavors, but this brew did not provide enough in the way of coconut to really slake my curiosity. That being said, it is not a bad IPA if you like tropical flavors, just don't get your hopes up for a pina-colada.

I bought this seeing it was a collaboration. Got it home and thought: Beer with coconut. What am I doing?

It poured a dark gold with nice bubbly head and a little lacing

Nose at first was very pleasant but went away

Taste is rather unbalanced with very strong hops and oils. I am not noticing much coconut. Let's warm it up as we drink it and see if that changes.

Mouth feel is typical for this style.

Overall, there are so many IPA to choose from. This is not a top shelf item. But you never know; it was worth a try.

Stone emblazened 22 oz. bomber served up into a globe glass. First thing I notice is that this brew has the same ABV as Ruination, we'll see if that commonality arises again.

Pours is clear and deep golden in color, perhaps a hint of amber in there. Pillowy off white cap drops off some lace as a light boil emanats from the bottom of the glass. Retenion is decent but not overwhelming by any means. And since when is a 4.0 'Outstanding'? Don't change for you and don't change a thing, for me.

Aroma is hop forward with citrus and tropical notes, some dried fruit and is rounded out but a faint coconut creamy nature which seems to confuse the nose on a long inhalation. A fresh breath resurrects the hops to creamy cycle.

Flavor is smooth with a neutral malt base and a firm coconut flavor from mid palate on through the finish with a lingering close. Coconut is much more pronounced than expected after reading a few earlier reviews. Mouthfeel is soft, creamy and belies the the heft of the ABV. Nice level of carbonation which doesn't drown out the coconut creaminess. Finish is dry and somewhat chalky with a notable coconut presence, yet without a strong bitterness. It seems the coconut balances that out if this brew truly sports 90 IBU's.

Easy drinking 7.70% IPA, at least for one bottle that is. Lacks the harsh bitterness of the aforementioned Ruination and adds some unique flavors.
