Coco Chaos IPA from Coronado Brewing, is being evaluated as a Fruit Beer (Category 29A) from the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines.

Coco Chaos, brewed with toasted coconut, pours a deep yellow that’s tends toward a hazy New England IPA in appearance, with a thick, moussey white head that lingers. The prominent fresh and bright lemon and grapefruit zest hop aroma hits the drinker immediately, with a hit of pineapple as the beer opens up. A suggestion of toasted coconut aroma develops as it warms, along with a very light bready base malt. The flavor follows with prominent grapefruit combined with mixed tropical fruit hop character, with a high hop bitterness that emerges mid-palate and lingers into a dry finish.  The hop bitterness remains smooth throughout. The light bready base malt makes an appearance in the aftertaste but the coconut is quite absent in the flavor.

This is a very well brewed New England style IPA that has a fresh, bright, juicy and refreshing hop character. The coconut is difficult to find in the aroma and does not make an appearance in the flavor. If you are looking for a flavorful and enjoyable IPA, don’t hesitate to pick this one up. Just don’t expect much coconut character from it.
