Got in a trade with GreenBayBA. 12 oz bottle poured into Central Waters snifter. Pours a mango-orange glow with a creamy head of 1 finger. Stays firm at 1/2 finger.

Aroma of oranges and bitter orange rind, slight pineapple, hop funk, and beery grains.

The flavor is a bit more bitter than expected, but still rather good. Bitter orange peel, hop oils, bitter pineapple, more hop dust, slight cracker, and an aftertaste of dry hop, a lot of amarillo and some cascade, and faint sweet bread on the finish.

Feel is semi-creamy, has a tight carbonation profile but not overly prickly, and an oily, slightly dry finish.

Overall, this beer isn't half bad. I was expecting more of a tropical vibe (I wonder why) and I got a very midwestern IPA with gratuitous amarillo dry hopping. Was hoping for something a little more juicy and fruity, but that's okay, I like beer.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours a deep amber orange. Moderate amount of bubbles and a solid finger of off white head that settles into a thin patchy layer.

Smell: A juicy and earthy hop driven aroma with a scent of citrus, pineapple, and coconut. Citrus hop scent of orange peel, grapefruit, mango, tangerine, and lemon along with some pineapple juice. Earthy hop scent of pine and grass. Sweet hints of coconut. Malt hints of caramel, grains, and cracker with yeast. A pretty nice aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy and earthy hop driven taste with notes of citrus, pineapple, and coconut. Citrus hop notes of grapefruit, orange peel, tangerine, mango, and lemon along with pineapple juice. Some sweet notes of coconut. Malt notes of caramel, grains, and cracker along with some yeast. A very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, fairly oily, and drying.

Overall: A very nice twist on an IPA. Nice blend of hop notes with the added pineapple and coconut.

Hazy amber with a dense head. Aroma is pineapple, citrus, and a hint of coconut. Smells great. The coconut is much more prevalent in the flavor. But it does not overwhelm or gets cloying. However I do not feel it works well with this bitter with a bunch of citrus and pineapple flavor. Slightly sweet malt backbone. Solid body and carbonation. Interesting combination of flavors that just does not work for me.

Poured 22oz bottle into snifter. It is clear and golden with a nice 2 finger white head. It dissipates moderately and a ring lingers around the glass with lacing noticeable along the sides of the glass. Bitter and slight floral hop notes with prominent noted of crushed pineapple and hints of coconut along with a touch of sweet malt. It starts off with some bitter pine hops and citrus followed by a touch of sweet caramel from the malts. The finish is heavy with pineapple and a lingering flavor of coconut. Nice carbonation and a slightly resinous mouthfeel. Kind of sticky and dry afterwards. This was fun and quite enjoyable as a flavored IPA.

Hazy amber with sticky, drippy lace above a thick, white ring that settled down from a large white foam.

Smell is pine, onion, fresh jalapeno?!, with dank and sweaty peach.

Taste is mint but vegetal with pineapple, vanilla, and a sort of bunch of wild weeds. This is almost like a saison, but not? I think something's going wrong here.

Frothy soft with a medium, semi-wet almost watery body.

Undated bomber.

Pours a cloudy medium amber color. 1.5 finger head. Good retention and lacing.

Smells like pineapple and citrus. Definitely get coconut as well.

Coconut comes through strongly in the taste. Pineapple, grapefruit, and other tropical fruits as well. Definitely bitter and fruity.

Feel is medium to light. High carbonation.

Overall, a tasty flavored IPA great for a hot day. Only seek this one out if you like coconut! It is definitely front and center in the taste.

This beer pours a clear orange with an average head. The aroma is fruity and tropical, with pineapple, mango, coconut, vanilla, and tangerine peel. The flavor is nicely mellow and fruity, with orange juice, pineapple, coconut, vanilla, and low bitterness. The mouthfeel is light a quite fizzy. Overall this is a tasty and fun beer - it does just what it says on the label, and does have a very relaxed beach feel.

Looked good on paper. Smelled good in the glass with a nice pour. This just didnt come together. Bitterness is a bit off putting and seems to fight with the coconut and almost acidic citrus flavors. Mouthfeel very light, not much body.
