Great IPA from stone as usual. Bright light orange with a reasonable white head. Not rampant on the nose but balanced tropical notes. Balanced citra bitterness with piney undertones again with tropical hints. Not a hint of coconut however even when searching out the flavor at every sip. Thoroughly passable but not what I had hoped for. Seemed like a strange idea when I first bought bit there was so much pina it's a shame there was no colada

22oz bomber poured into a snifter straight from the fridge. Bottle is printed with an enjoy by date of 10/10/13.

A- Pours a hazy orange with a half finger's worth of off-white head.

S- Citrus notes and some sweetness. No coconut in the aroma for me.

T- Starts off with pine and citrus hops before giving way to some sweet malts. I do get some coconut in the back of each taste, but not as pronounced as I expected.

M- Medium bodied, well carbonated, hoppy with a dry finish. Easy drinking as most Stone IPAs are.

Not a bad IPA, I thought the coconut would be more pronounced though.

A: Amber in color with a thin, white, fizzy head.

S: Fresh citrus hops and sweet malt. No coconut whatsoever.

T: Big fruity hop character with nice malt to back it up. Nice smooth IPA. However, once again any trace of coconut is not detectable to my senses.

M: Smooth and light. Crisp and slightly bubbly with a slight oily texture.

O: This was a decent beer but I, like others, am pretty disappointed that the coconut advertised on bottle doesn't perform the way I was expecting it to in the beer. To be completely honest, IMO this beer tasted quite similar to the 16 year anniversary IPA (http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/147/84194).

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.
