Evil Twin Brewing I’m In A Coconut State Of Mind – American Double / Imperial IPA at 8% ABV (C$10.95 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 17-Nov-2022, acquired 29-Dec-2022, reviewed 15-Jan-2023)
Appearance: hazy medium gold with two fat fingers of rocky pale ivory head, excellent retention and well-defined soapy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: coconut, citrus, tropical fruit. (8/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly sticky medium duration warming finish. (4/5)
Hopped with Mandarina Bavaria, Sabro, and Citra, conditioned on coconut. I see where Jeppe is going with this – conceptually, it’s not a lot different than adding a citrus adjunct to emphasize those characteristics in any number of hops, except it’s coconut and Sabro. Don’t get me wrong, I quite like coconut, but I’m just not completely convinced that coconut and sweetness are the best matches for a DIPA. If that appeals to you, more power to you, but for me this isn’t a complete success. (14/20)
This will be my 5,468th unique Untappd check-in.
