Had a few cans of this already.

A- The tallboy drops a murky, cloudy pale yellow brew into my goblet. The cap forms as a white frothy layer reaching a half inch tall with decent retention. Thin islands in the middle and a small ring around the edges and lacing is spotty with a few small sheets.

S- A massive aroma of toasted coconut blended with fresh mango juice and a touch of slightly tart passionfruit. The adjuncts really do run the show here front and center for hints of tropical and citrus hops. The mango and coconut interplay is bright and truly inviting. Pineapple notes also strong.

T- Things are bolder and perhaps a bit more jagged around the edges compared to the very balanced aroma likely because a big bitterness plays well with certain things here and not so much others. The coconut is still strong but takes a hit because of that bitterness. Citrus hops and mango make for a nice backdrop to the toasted coconut lead and passionfruit rounds it all out. Tropical, citrus popsicle comes to mind with coconut laced throughout. Again, the bitterness here is reminiscent of citrus oil and a bit less would go a long way. Hints of creamsicle, pineapple, vanilla sweets, grapefruit and melon.

MF- Creamy approaching chewy and rather fluffy textured. The carbonation is at a medium level and this beer is just plain soft on the palate which definitely suits the intense adjunct flavors. Bitter and tart in the finish.

The aroma is splendid as juicy mango and coconut join together to do some work. The hop bitterness in the flavor comes out a bit too intensely for the passionfruit, coconut and mango to keep that balance but all in all the flavors work well enough together for this one to remain very enjoyable on the whole.

Can from a friend thanks.
Pours a hazy murky dirty yellow with a thin off white head that dissipates quickly.
Pineapple and coconut in spades with hints of bready maltiness and light tropical fruits. I unfortunately dont like coconut but if I did the flavors in this meld wonderfully.
