Notes: Collaboration with J. Wakefield Brewing

This is an IPA brewed with coconut and dry hopped with Equinox, El Dorado and Zythos. Tropical, sunny, a little unique, a lot of fun!

Coconut ipa, canned 5/23/18

Light fizzy head, very little retention, semi hazy golden straw color

Nose tons of coconut, coconut oil, little citrus and tropical like, little floral grassy

Taste big coconut, fresh toasted coconut and oil, little genetic tropical and citrus but not much after the tons of coconut, creamy malt, dry slight spicy finish fair bitterness, tons of coconut lingering

Mouth is med bod fluffy little creamy, decent carb

Overall good in small doses but still way too much coconut nothing much else

Great collaboration. Was skeptical to grab this but it really is super delicious. Flavor is definetly not overpowering, but I have only had one at a time. Very surprising beer, wonderfully done withoutnl killing the coconut

Purchased cold - 16oz can dated 8/3/17 "RIP MOOCH" - Poured into an English pub glass

L - Pours a clear, pale neon yellow with a pillowy 1 finger head that dissipates entirely leaving no lacing as it goes down.

S - Coconut, ethanol, and light tropical hops

T - Coconut meat and tropical hops dominate the palate, there isn't much else here but there doesn't need to be.

F - Medium bodied with a light carbonation

O - Cue the synthesizer and cocaine fueled parties of a bygone era, definitely feeling the subtropical vibes on this one and all said this beer just does it for me. The mouthfeel is on point, and despite the nose giving off a bit of ethanol stank it's undetectable on the palate. I found myself going back for a second pint before I knew it.

Really cool beer. Balanced coconut and hops and come together beautifully. Not a combo you'd expect to work but the blend of hops they use in this beer (not too juicy) work very will with the coconut.

Like all finbacks, low on hoppyness, great on the smooth flavor. You won't smell the coconut but god damn, the taste is strong and is like the medicine you always wanted to have as a child.

A pleasant combination with a sweet, well balanced flavor of coconut throughout that complimented the hoppy character well.
