Notes: Life’s best experiences provide a momentary escape from the everyday routine. To drift your mind away to somewhere peaceful and tropical, hints of citrus combine with freshly toasted, shredded coconut and our white wine barrel-aged sour golden ale. Lay out a towel and grab an umbrella for that glass, your vacation is about to begin

A: Pours a hazy medium to dark honey orange in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation and moderate golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall fizzy foamy light beige head that quickly reduces to a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of earthy funky tartness with light aromas of citrus/lime and hints of toasted coconut. Very light aromas of oak barrel and vinous hints.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of pale + grainy malts with just a hint of sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of earthy tart funkiness and a light to moderate flavor of citrus/lime and light flavors of toasted coconut. Finally there is a light to moderate flavor of oak and vinous notes. Light amounts of tartness lingers in the finish.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of acidic prickliness.

O: Interesting with a decent amount of complexity to both the flavor and aroma - there are definitely aspects that make me think of a tropical beach. A little more subdued in flavors than I expected but still very enjoyable.

This beer pours a pale gold with a tiny head. The aroma is of lemon and orange sourness with toasted almond, vanilla, and maybe some coconut. The flavor is very straight forward sour - lots of green apple, lemon, and sour orange. There is no coconut flavor I can find. The mouthfeel is medium bodied. Overall there was nothing wrong with this beer, but I just did not get much of what was advertised.

Beer pours a pleasant golden color, demonstrating decent carbonation with a pleasant white head. The nose is pungently coconut! Expectations are set.

Sadly, Paradox's Call Me in the Morning doesn't deliver on the taste. While it's a pleasant, juicy, sweet sour, the coconut seems absent. I get plenty in the nose, but the coconut just doesn't translate to the taste.

It's a decent sour, and I enjoyed it - but it doesn't live up to expectations.
