4.23/5  rDev +14.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A-Bright oak colored...little head...

S-Big ganja aroma....like smelling bong resin....

T-Flavors of weed, tobacco, pine.

M-Body is medium to full....lower carbonation

O-Nice grungy/dank IPA but lacking in any real coconut flavors. I get a lot of ganja on the aroma and taste...on the finish there is a bit of sweetness but not really a coconut sweetness. In fact there is NO coconut evident but this is still a very enjoyable IPA. Has some bitterness to it but more flavorful than sharp with the bittering notes...

If you are expecting a coconut type beer this would rate below average but it is classified as an IPA and that is how I will rate it...just don't expect any coconut

3.38/5  rDev -8.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

22 oz. bottle purchased in the greater Washington D.C. area, unknown bottling date but best buy 10/10/13, poured into my FFF Teku glass, drank 10/5/13 over an hour.

A: 2/3 - deep orange-golden coloration, minimal clarity (can't see or read through), initial soapy white head dissipates into subtle glass lacing, moderate alcohol legs

S: 8/12 - lots of bleachy Cascade aroma; the bottle is all about the tropical fruit aromas but I smell none; no coconut aroma at all; 66.67% is a gift but I'm really not feeling this aroma at all

T: 13/20 - on the anterior tongue, there is an unpowering Cascade bitterness; it the middle of the mouth, the bitterness continues to linger with minor malt balance (marmalade and honey flavors) and alcohol; although it finishes dry, the worst aspect of the taste, in my opinion, is the lingering bitterness and the total lack of coconut flavors

M: 3/5 - moderate-bodied with hop oils coating the tongue, the alcohol is present but doesn't taste like a 7.7%ABV; moderate-to-high carbonation

O: 6/10 - I really wanted to like this beer and was hoping for coconut flavors/aroma but I got none, which is very disappointing after reading all the positive reviews of the homebrew recipe; this is a moderate IPA at best and, with the American market filled with many bigger and better, I'd stay away unless they can grasp those elusive coconut flavors/aroma

TOTAL = 32/50

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pale straw yellow colored with a hint of orange. An off-white head of bubbly foam settles out quickly. Aroma of grapefruit and orange rind. Flavors of sharp citrus hops, lots of grapefruit rind and piney notes. I wouldn't know there was any coconut in this if you didn't tell me. Full mouthfeel, tingly finish, perhaps gets some fullness from coconut oil? Good beer, but where's the coconut?

22oz bomber dated best by 10-10-2013:

Into a pint glass:

A: slightly hazy golden orange, but somewhat also clear body with a one finger white foamy head that leaves a fairly nice clingy foamy lacing that just encircles the glass all around

S: its an AIPA, well, its bitter hoppy up front, no matter how much I let it warm, but after about a good half an hour, ever so slowly the coconut is finally showing up - good, I wondered where it was

T: bittersweet - all the way combined as I let it warm I believe the way its supposed to, therefore, there's a certain smoothness that comes through and creates a very good balance between the bitter hops and the sweet coconut effects, no aftertaste, slightly dry finish

M: light to medium, fairly sesionable, carbonation is a bit smoother than most AIPA's, but hey, I'm not complainin', I realize the coconut aspect probably helps to make it that way.

O: wow, what a great idea to put coconut in an AIPA, who would've thought, kudos to Stone, Rip Current and the homebrewers Robert Masterson and Ryan Reschan, I'd have this one again

3.4/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22oz bomber purchased from K&L Wine Merchants in Redwood City, CA.

Pours a pleasant deep golden colour, with some hazing. Head is a little lacklustre, but forms a fine film of pure white across the top of the glass. Lacing forms in streaks. Body has a little gelatinous heft to it, and the carbonation swirls through it in fine intricate patterns. Looks pretty good.

Nose is decent enough, but it falters in that it neither has the coconut nor the hops in quite the quantities I thought it might. Instead, there's a smoothness to the sweetness, which is potentially attributable to whatever coconut addition there happened to be. There's a sharpness to it, but muted and a little bit washed out. It's good, but certainly not a lot more than that.

Taste is similar: perhaps a little cleaner and clearer, with a more direct, sharper hop character running through the centre of the palate to the back. But it still doesn't offer a lot beyond being a decent IPA. Finish has a clear sweet character like an overuse of crystal malt. Hmm.

Feel is clean with a smoothness to it. It's decent enough.

Overall, it's good, and I've probably been a bit unfairly harsh on it because it really didn't do anything beyond being a solid-IPA-that-happens-to-be-brewed-by-Stone. But there was promise behind the concept, and this didn't really deliver on that concept.

Pale amber, minimal head and only a wee trace of lace in official Stone glassware.

Aroma typically pine hoppy rather than coconut-oriented.

Taste strong on the ipa tip, with bitter grapefruit dominating. Again, coconut is subtle under the palate.

Solid ipa with a hint of something different.

A: poured from a 22 oz bottle into a pint glass, amber colored with a large fluffy off white head that lingers leaving good lacing, hazy

S: heavy citrus hops, grapefruit, lemon, mango, pineapple, very tropical but I don't smell coconut hiding in there

T: heavy hop bitterness, grapefruit peel, a little oily coconut flavor in the middle sneaks out, finish is dry citrus bitterness

M: medium body with a slightly slick oily quality, higher carbonation

O: bitter but tasty IPA, coconut plays only a bit part

This has the standard hearty flavor profile that a Stone IPA, or something along those lines, normally would. The coconut seems to add a somewhat subtle character to things. It isn’t very firm or showy at all. The hops that are clearly generously used give a slightly strong pine character. Very smooth feel. A well made beer. I don’t think the coconut really shows as much as people might want it to. But overall, the beer is nice.

22oz bottle with my Stone IPA flute style glass.
Notes from 09/08/13

A: Hazed over body of light caramel color. Some yellowish-gold hues appear when held to the light. Nice thick ecru head about two fingers high with slippery retention that leaves splotches of soapy lace all down the glass.

S: Fruity citrus, melon, and tropicals. Grapefruit meets some earthy grass with a hint of spice. Musky peach and mango with a dash of toasted coconut shavings on the tail end. Very subtle wouldn’t really know it if not clearly labeled. Otherwise fairly hoppy and nice.

T: Flavors are of citrusy hops up front like orange and grapefruit with some modest caramel malt sweetness. There is a tropical fruit twist mixed in with a light herbal spicing. Touch of coconut flavor on the finish but it’s not very stand out at all. One really has to make the search efforts. The beer has a moderate to high level of bitterness and some light noticeable alcohol warmth. The hops get a little soapy at times but I found the flavors to be well integrated and balanced overall.

M: Moderate body with a smooth and creamy texture. Light drying finish with a stick slick resinous coating.

D: As a hoppy IPA this is a decent drink but as a Coconut IPA it really misses the mark. Having had the original brew at the Stone AHA rally I can tell you that somewhere, somehow, something fell short in the scale up here. The brew I voted for was all Citrus IPA up front with a vibrant and refreshing Coconut finish. Like a damn Hop Colada!

Drinkable and nice but nothing as great as the actual homebrew was. Too much work to get dat der Coconut.

22oz. bomber into a Heady Topper stemless snifter.

Pours a 1 finger rich, white head with good retention. Beer is a clear copper. Lacing is thick and layered and spotty with great stick. Very nice looking beer.

Nose is coconut flesh, citrus, sap resin hop bitterness and cane sugar sweetness. Good balance. Moderately aromatic. Solid.

Opens sap hop bitterness. Some caramel, coarse brown sugar, citrus, and a biting hop presence in the middle. End is a slight bitter coconut skin at the end. Finishes resin and bitter with more of the same in the aftertaste. No real coconut flavor at all here. Not bad but certainly a bit disappointing.

Light to medium bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and crisp in the mouth and goes down filmy and sticky. Finishes messy with a long, lingering aftertaste. Ok.

There was a fair amount of hype for this brew and honestly, it really doesn't live up to it. Just a regular IPA from Stone with almost no coconut presence. Skip this one.

P: Pale clear golden body with streaming effervescence and a huge creamy off white blanket of clouds resting on top. Wet lacing slides gracefully up and down the walls.

S: Juicy tropical fruits, lots of lime, melon, stone fruit and dried coconut. Faint aroma of wet socks.

T/M: Huge dose of spice that dwindles to bitter citrus fruits and a soapy presence. Perfume/herbal booze. Coconut is faint but comes in toward the end and brings a warming sensation. Full bodied with a creamy carbonation. Super dry finish of citrus oils.

O: Call me crazy but I'm not getting the coconut like I expected to. The exexuition seemed rough unlike the normal refined Stone brews. This was decent but not really jaw dropping. A beautifully poured brew with a nice nose.

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

22oz bottle poured into a snifter. Drink by 10-10-13 stamped on the bottle...

A: Pours a majestic orange-gold, with a nice head of creamy, meringue-like foam; good retention leaves some strands and globs of sticky lace.

S: Heavy, raw citrus rind - mainly grapefruit and orange; perhaps some honey - but no coconut - I guess it's there if you imagine hard enough.

T: Pretty standard Stone IPA territory... tonsil-puckering hops - raw and in your face; not much malt to speak of other than a touch of light breadiness; maybe there is just a hint of coconut on the finish.

M: Middle of the road / medium for both mouthfeel and carbonation (perhaps a touch tingly). Nothing crazy.

O: A nice IPA, but the coconut dimension is lacking, which is a downer... A nice citrusy IPA with more coconut flavor would be tasty.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Beer pours a hazy golden peach color with a moderate/large off-white head. Head has okay retention and leaves heavy lacing. Smell consists of tangerine, orange, and breadiness. Can't pick up any real coconut aromas.

Taste starts with breadiness then pine, followed by lemon, orange, then a hint of coconut. Bready and citrusy finish. I think the breadiness in here takes away a bit from the citrus and coconut flavors, still good though. Mouthfeel is heavy and chewy, with above average carbonation.

3.66/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

This IPA is a bright but thick amber, dark yellow where the glass is thinner, and quite hazy. I've seen people say it's clear, but I can't see through mine. The head, very close to white, is a full finger after it's fallen. It's nice and frothy, thick and chewy-looking, at it immediately leaves heavy lacing where it's dropped from. At that point, it continues to leave heavy patching.
There are nice tropical notes on the nose, mostly what I was hoping for but not quite as bright and juicy as I'd heard.That may be because some pine resin and pith cut through it, but there is some juicy mango and papaya going on along with some grapefruit. Dry breads and caramel from malts are just enough to support the hops.
While the tropical juiciness is evident on the tip of the tongue, the pine and grapefruit peel come through stronger at the back of it. Sweetness backs off very quickly. Coconut is barely an afterthought, which is the most disappointing thing in what's essentially a good IPA. Just in the finish, and nowhere else, that coconut milk and something like whipped cream, texture included, tease what could have been.
Crispness is up front and makes up the strongest element of the feel in this medium-bodied brew, though it has a certain fluffiness that lends itself to an aspect of smoothness. The same feeling of filmy residue I get from whipped cream is on the roof of my mouth, though not strongly. It's unexpected and very unusual, though it's not enough to detract much.

Pours a clear golden color with a small head

Floral nose melds into a grassy pine followed by the most subtle coconut smell

Starts with a piney bitter with some coconut midway and ends bitter

Wonderful full bodied mouth feel. Coconut lingering in the back of my throat

4.1/5  rDev +11.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Hazy orange body with a thinnish finger of white head.

Nose is sweet and creamy. A bit of hop sharpness, but not overpowering.

Flavor is dominated by a sweet malt character, which I normally do not prefer. However, it really works here. Coconut is evident, to my palate. The resulting creaminess is noticeable. The hops mostly balance, but remain slightly in the background. A very tasty brew indeed!

Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, with a bit of the aspirin chalkiness on the finish that I attribute to hops.

Overall, a very nice brew. Very drinkable and tasty. Interesting balance.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 22 oz. bottle into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy orange-gold, with a finger's worth of white head and average visible carbonation.

S: Bitter grapefruit, some pine and spicy hops, some caramel and vanilla with biscuit malts in the background.

T: Very bitter grapefruit, grass, and pine hops with some vanilla flavor and sweet malts with a fairly restrained caramel flavor. The flavors leave a fairly bitter presence for awhile after the swallow, like chewing on grapefruit rind.

M: Medium to heavy-bodied for style, average carbonation sensation. The alcohol is noticeable here but doesn't dominate.

O: I notice that the word "coconut" shows up nowhere in my review. This isn't a a bad beer, although it's nothing exciting and falls in that category of a bitter bomb without much of the accompanying hop flavors. But it's a complete fail in the coconut department. I'm quite disappointed.

Bottle. enjoy by 10/10/13, enjoyed thoroughly on 8/20/13. Pours a golden with a bit of copper, perfectly clear and with a fluffy and creamy one finger white head. Aroma of sweet malts and lots of hops, Stone style. Flavor is hop forward with a nice lingering bitter. Grapefruit, grass, and pine galore. Coconut? I guess it is this strange additional bitter flavor I am getting. Not offensive, but something different and not really coconut, per se. Easy drinking with plenty of carbonation. I dunno about the coconut, but this is an excellent IPA on its own.

I had this again with only a week or two more age on it and man did it fade fast. Definitely have this fresh, otherwise you'll end up with a muddled murky mess. Still loved it brand newly fresh though.

On tap into a Cuvee des Jacobins tulip.

Appearance - Beautifully clear copper color with 1/2 inch white head. Leaves nice lacing on the glass as I sip on it.

Smell - Wonderful nose of pine, tropical fruit, and the slightest hint of coconut. As others have said, just enough coconut to adjust the nose a tad but it melds really well with the tropical character so you don't notice a slap in the face like in the Dayman IPA.

Taste - Very crisp with slight citrus sweetness. Coconut is more apparent in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Very light and dry. I definitely appreciate this in a west coast IPA, especially in the summer.

Overall - Very well executed albeit light in the coconut. The coconut is definitely apparent and if I have the choice in too much or too little of a fruit flavor in a beer, I definitely prefer the tastefulness of the subtlety in the coconut. Great beer.

Poured an opaque orange/amber with thin ring of head that left little lacing. It looks quite nice, though I'd like for a bit more head. Scents of pine, citrus, tropical fruit and slight malt and very, very, very slight coconut. A good scent, quite fitting for an IPA, with just enough coconut in there to make it unique. Flavor is hop forward, with a big hit of grapefruit rind, grapefruit, pine, slight floral hops, slight tropical fruit, with a good level of hop bitterness all laid over a backbone of pale and caramel malt. The coconut is very slight in the background and in the background of the aftertaste. A good flavor, though the coconut is minimal. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly oily, but rather crisp as well, with moderate carbonation. A good mouthfeel, very easy to drink, quite pleasant. Overall it's a good IPA. It has the nice West Coast IPA profile I love, and just enough of a hint of coconut to make it slightly different. It could do with more coconut, but Stone had trouble finding enough coconuts for a price that wasn't ridiculous so I won't fault them that. It's still an excellent West Coast IPA and well worth trying.

Relatively thin IPA with near zero coconut on the nose and taste.

If you say COCONUT on the label please give me some.

Minus this the beer is a typical Stone IPA, good when I first started drinking IPA's, however there are so many great IPA's today Stone has become pretty average.

Don't pass this up if you are offered it. It's not a bad beer, but I cannot recommend anyone proactively making a run to the beer store to buy one.

22oz bottle with an Enjoy By date of 10/23/13. Pours a hazy amber color with an inch of frothy white head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is sweet with a mix of tropical fruits, hints of coconut and that classic Stone hoppyness. The taste is bitter tangerine and orange peel upfront followed by slight hints of coconut. Oily and dry with a noticeable alcohol presence. Some bitter pine towards the end. Hints of tropical fruit throughout but not as detectable as it was in the nose. Also, I expected more coconut flavor. There is some toasted coconut but this one is dominated by the bitter citrus peel and piney hops. Mouthfeel is oily with lots of carbonation. Overall, pretty good IPA but nothing earth shattering. I'd have it again given the chance.

Poured into a Sierra Nevada IPA glass from the 22 oz. bottle.

a: Nearly clear gold, inch tall white head receded to heavy surface foam and extensive lacing.

s: Grapefruit.

t: Powerful piney/citrus hops forward over a pleasant malt base.

m: Medium, good body.

o: A substantial yet refreshing brew. Perhaps more citrusy than other Stones I have had. DIPA strength hop bite, but coconut is MIA. Leaves a lingering bitter aftertaste at the sides of the tongue.

I understand that Stone's had problems getting enough coconuts to flavor this product. They really should have changed the name before they released it. If they had called it Stone DIPA Baby or something else more accurate, reviews and ratings would not reflect the disappointment those drinking it must have felt.

On a bleached playing field, this brew would stand up well to most DIPAs and certainly be better thought of. 3.7 definitely does not accurately reflect its high quality IMO.

Pours a decent layer of white head. Color is a golden orange.

Flavor profile is coconut and tropical fruit. A fair amount of citrus. Pineapple, mango, orange flavors all present. Some floral hops. Has a touch of malt showing as well.

Mouthfeel: Kind of bitter, but not over the top. A little sticky. Medium bodied.

Overall, an enjoyable beer. I'd easily drink more of this. A little pricey out of the bottle, however. Glad I found it on tap.
