      Package: bottled
      Place: Beertopia, Omaha NE
      Score: 17 points
      Appearance (3)
      Deep red-amber. Some haze. Thick head.
      Aroma (3)
      Lots and lots and lots of coconut!
      Mouthfeel (9)
      Medium-almost-big body. HUGE coconut flavor. Nicely malty, toffee underneath. Coconut all the way through. Very mild fruity hop flavor, not all that bitter.
      Overall Impression (2)
      As a wood-aged beer, it's fantastic. As a Double IPA, it's pretty mild.

      Aroma (3)
      Big resiny, fruity hops.
      Mouthfeel (9)
      Big and chewy. Blast of resiny hop flavor, fairly bitter. Big biscuity malt base. Fruity, biscuity, nicely bitter finish. Just a little warming at the end.
      Overall Impression (3)
      An intensely hoppy beer that's really well-balanced.
