Really nice beer by Finback. I wanted to try it because of the coconut. That flavor note is very subtle but this beer does a great job of blending the orange and pineapple. This beer is totally refreshing and could be prolific on a shaded porch during the dog days of summer. I will definitely drink this one again!

Crowler from One Stop Beer Shop in Greece, NY.

This one pours a very hazy golden yellow color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like sweet candied pineapple, vanilla, coconut cream, orange creamsicle, orange peel, and mango.

This is really well done, as fruited IPAs go - which is a style I traditionally do not like. The coconut is done well, and does not enter suntan lotion territory. I think the pineapple and orange helps that - it adds a creamy and smooth sweetness alongside the fruitiness. There's only just the slightest touch of bitterness.

This is creamy, and smooth and drinkable. I could drink more of this than would be advisable.

It's hard not to like this, even though it's pretty silly.

Light, golden and hazy. Mellow on the nose. Bitter front with hints of citrus peel finished by what I can only describe as the perfect piña colada. Very unique and well executed.
