Color- unfiltered honey. Slight head.

Aroma- mildly hoppy yet sweet.

Taste- A buttery and mellow IPA. Imagine the best qualities of Stone and Dogfish combined - with a mellow finish and a faint coconut hint in the aftertaste. I was skeptical about coconut as an adjunct but this works wonderfully.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted on 9/28/2013.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into pint glass. The first pint had a sharp hop taste that didn't allow me to taste any of the tropical fruits or coconut. The second pint poured a bit warmer which probably helped. By the end of the second pint I could actually taste the tropical flavors. I would recommend drinking it a bit warmer than your normal IPA to bring forward the flavors.

Overally I'm glad I tried it, but won't be buying it again.

R&R pours a hazy golden brown, topped with a decent layer of puffy foam. The aroma is quite fresh and fruity... one can really smell the coconut here! Otherwise there's a very big pine-like hop presence going on here. A few good sips reveal the fact that the beer has a good balance between malt and hop characteristics. The hops give off that "resinous" type of flavor. The finish is very crisp and it lingers nicely. I was a little disappointed that the coconut shines mostly in the aftertaste. Overall, I'm not sorry I purchased it, it was enjoyable, I just wish the coconut aspect was more pronounced.

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.
