On draught at Frontier Brewing and Taproom.

Pours a pale gold with a quickly disappearing head of foam, very little lacing.

Piney hops, light coconut, some dankness in the nose.

Taste is heavy on the pine, light on the coconut, dankness coming from tropical fruit hints. Good but a rough to my palate.

12 oz can. Pours clear dark gold with a big pillowy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is grainy bready malt with coconut and tropical fruit and some spicy resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet cracker malts with coconut and some tropical fruit with spicy resiny hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, nice fruity hoppy IPA. The coconut goes well.

Copper colored with an inch of soapy and frothy off white to lightly tan head. The aroma is of coconut, lemon, and a whiff of pine. The coconut and pine are somewhat at odds with each other. I would describe the coconut as a suntan lotion flavor, but it's really only in the front of the palate and then the pine takes over. It seems a bit dense for the style.

Clear yellow amber brew with plenty of foam in the Caution Brewing nonic. Not too sweet. Light body. Distinct coconut nose, but the flavoring is not overly strong.

Surprisingly pleasant flavored brew. Tastes like a little pineapple with the coconut. Or a touch of passionfruit with a faint scratch of bitterness in the aftertaste. From the 12 oz can purchased at Grapevine Liquors in Denver.

these have been becoming really popular lately, ive seen several of them around the country this summer after never really having seen them before, but coconut and hops together makes perfect sense, and this is one of the more robust coconut ones i have had, its a little fakey to me, sunscreen and sweetness, but its also perfect with the selected hops in here, and is quite a drinkable and unique summer beer, plus its fairly sturdy in the abv, which is cool for one of these to no be 4% abv. pale and a little hazy, creamy white headed and alive from the can, the aroma is fresh toasted coconut and tropical hops, some bitterness, an earthy profile, and a little more malt sweet and heft than anticipated. the hops do show some pineapple and mango in the flavor, a mosaic sort of citrus vibe too, and plenty of bitterness, very much an ipa even with the sweetness here from the grain and the coconut. the coconut is strong, no mistaking it. i dont mind it being a little sweet and up front, the hop bitterness balances it fine later on. one of the better denver beer company beers i have had in some time, but im not sure i could drink a six pack of this, too much coconut flavoring for that, but its pretty solid if you like this sort of thing...

Poured from a 12oz can with a canned on date of 6/13/18; into a pint glass.
Appearance- a faintly oily, dark gold with some rising bubbles that aid a thin, white head; some scattered lacing.
Smell - toasted coconut, sun tan lotion, earthy hops and pine tree; no doubt smells like Summer!
Taste - although there is a bit of a sun tan lotion-like flavor profile, I still dig the delicious semi sweet coconut paired with mango and pineapple; a hoppy coconut snow cone!
Feel - not too sweet, the right amount of bitterness, and easy drinking!
Overall - I’m a fan of coconut, so this one scores with me; even though the 6.6% is well hidden, it would be nice if this was under 6%, as I could see myself enjoying a few of these on a hot summer beach or pool day!

Amber gold with a generous white head that recedes fairly quickly but leaves some nice patchy lacing. The aroma is predominantly citrus. At one point I thought I caught a whiff of coconut, but then it was gone. The taste is the same citrus with a faint hint of pineapple. Still not getting the coconut. Decent fruity IPA.
