Overall, a pleasantly balanced beer. I was afraid that the coconut flavor would either be non-existent or over powering. It was neither. You get a pleasant hint of coconut that blends nicely with the overall nuttiness of the beer. It's especially nice to drink during the winter, dreaming of warmer, tropical days.

I Have tried EVERY American brown ale and specialty brown ales available in my area and even the Rouge hazelnut or Dogfish heads brown ale does not touch this one IN MY OPINION! It just smells amazing and tastes so good in summer or winter. I buy cases of it when it comes out and never want to drink the last ones. :) would love to try on tap.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a medium mahogany brown with a thin light tan head that dissipates to patchy foam and a ring around the glass. Aroma of coconut, caramel malt, slightly nutty. Flavor is biscuit malt, sweet coconut, nuts with a light grassy hop finish. Light to medium bodied. A light bodied brown ale with a well balanced, but assertive coconut flavor which has a slightly artificial taste. A pleasant, fun to drink ale that definitely leaves a tropical feeling.
