Great name!
"Twenty years ago — a time, by the way, that hops such as Simcoe and Citra were already being developed, but weren’t about to find immediate popularity — there wasn’t a brewer on earth who would have gone to the annual Hop Growers of American convention and said, “I’m going to have a beer that we make 4,000 barrels of, one time a year. It flies off the shelf at damn near $20 a six-pack, and you know what it smells like? It smells like your cat ate your weed and then pissed in the Christmas tree.” - Bell’s Brewery Director of Operations John Mallet on the scent of their popular Hopslam.

I usually have the name first and try to figure out a recipe to match. I have That's No Moon for a Belgian Wit but I don't like the style so will likely never brew it.

I really enjoyed the first one. So hopefully, this one’s similar.
I added the chinook at 40 mins to this one. Last one didn’t have anything until 5 mins. And was a touch on the sweet side.
Also US 05 (because that’s what I had), this time, instead of London III.

Definitely recommend letting this one warm up a little from fridge cold. There's a ton going on here and I'm not entirely sure it works as a milkshake IPA, but I did enjoy drinking it overall. I think people's feelings on it will be heavily tied to the coconut. The color seems somewhat dark considering the grist and a 60 minute boil, but that's just a cosmetic thing. The coconut works with the hop flavors, but there's a juice-like character (acidity?), possibly from all that citrus rind, that I think might have worked better against vanilla than coconut (if only vanilla weren't so god damn expensive). I'm curious how big the difference is in appearance and mouthfeel between this batch and the previous batch with the London III yeast? Thanks for sharing!

If I didn't read the name of the beer I wouldn't think milkshake IPA either but I get what you were going for! I thought it was pretty tasty. I'm also curious what the london ale yeast would do for it. I was hoping to get that citrus finish but I think the bitterness from the peels works against it. Didn't get a ton of coconut either so that was a plus!

I found a heavy mouth feel. Not a bad beer, I just had to swallow and appreciate it.

Color really threw me off based on the posted recipe. Lots of coconut and hops, was enjoyable to drink.

Holy coconut batman! I enjoyed this.. didnt read the description before I cracked it open, and it didn't take long to smell/taste the toasted coconut. Thanks for the share!

Not really what you were shooting for I’d guess. Hops so subdued they almost don’t show. Nice coconut and graham cracker thing. Toasted coconut. Murky uncertain drink. Image

Lovely beer, makes for a nice chill on the couch after hockey. Lots going on in it, I'm digging all the coconut used in this year's exchange. Thanks for sharing!

I am not sure if my taster is broken, I was not able to pick out the coconut in this. Usually not a fan of coconut anyway so I am okay with it! I was getting lots of hops on the nose, and in the finish. Found it to be very tropical, was getting pineapple and grapefruit. Another very enjoyable beer. Thanks!

I enjoyed it. Little bit of a mess goin on for me, hops indistinguishable. I don’t like coconut but you guys are selling me on it slowly with this exchange hahaha.

Agreed with the tornado of flavors, definitely tropical and I certainly enjoyed it. In my head when tasting it I was expecting a slight harshness from the hops based on the first impression but the lactose presumingly mellowed it out which is cool.

thanks!

A very interesting beer. Sweet, tropical flavours with coconut to begin with and the juicy mango in the hops coming forward towards the end, but not hanging around long. The mouthfeel was creamy, like pina colada despite the strong carbonation. I didn't pick up the oxidation. The finish had a little zing, maybe from the citrus peel.

Thank you!
