4.29/5 rDev +18.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.25
A-Burnt orange tinged brown color...nice off white head with good lacing on glass
S-Excellent coconut aroma. Nothing subtle here. I also note vanilla, nougat, and caramel.
T-Coconut is strong here as well but not quite as dominant as on the aroma. Still a nice almond joy type flavor to this with coconut, nougat, some light milk chocolate and some light almond like notes....
M-This is the only drawback. I know it is just a brown ale but I wish it had just a little more heft in the body. Despite the wonderful flavors it has a very light body and comes across as "watery" on the finish.
O-This might not be for everyone but it is for me. A top notch flavored brown ale. I would love to have this and Tyranena's Rocky's Revenge (bourbon barrel aged brown) on hand at all times for my brown ale's in my dream bar.

3.36/5 rDev -7.4%

A- Crystal clear brown with quickly dissipating, soapy head. OK lacing.
S- Smells more like sweet vanilla candy when its cold. Coconut becomes more pronounced as it warms, but never really becomes true. Some slight breadiness and caramel malts.
T- Cold, it was mainly burnt cracker with a touch of coconut. I found it needed to warm a few minutes for the flavors of caramel, light citrus and slight earthy hop to come out, but as it warmed further, those flavors dissipated away, leaving a warm version of what I tasted cold. Weak flavors.
M- Light bodied and semi drying. Burnt, bready aftertaste.
O- I'm a big coconut fan, but this really wasn't what I was hoping for. The coconut never quite tasted like coconut, and every aspect being graded was weaker than I prefer. I don't want to dis Kona; Fire Rock Pale Ale is one of my go-to's, but this one just didn't measure up for me.

If you like Brown beer and are a fan of Coconut, this is a fantastic brew...just tried it for the first time. Reasonable price $5 on tap. The coconut aroma lets your taste buds know what's coming. Good bite and flavor, smooth on the palate. Best brown I've tried yet.
