3.53/5 rDev -4.1%
Out of a bomber into a shaker. 2013 so it was past it’s best by date a bit.
A – Poured out a cloudy, hazy yellow with a full finger of foamy white head that stuck around and left small amounts of lacing.
S – Piney aroma with some grapefruit in the nose. No sign of the coconut in the small at all.
T – Good solid hop bitterness up front. Pretty much like a Stone IPA that I know and like. Nice citrus punch with grapefruit and orange. Sweet malts. Creamy flavor. No coconut discernable.
M – Smooth and creamy. Appropriate carbonation. Medium bodied.
O – Good solid IPA. I don’t know if the coconut disappeared as it was not drank by its best date bit still this is a tasty, creamy nice drinking IPA.

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.

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.
