Coconut is one of my favorite flavours, be it on its own or especially when found in chocolate or pastries. In terms of beer I've always enjoyed a good coconut sweet stout and have also always wanted to brew one myself. Since the summer heat was still well settled in at the time this beer was brewed, I traded the stout for a refreshing IPA. With about 20% flaked oats in the malt bill, as well as a lactose addition, this creamy beer was the first of its kind for me and I'm very pleased with the first results. The coconut was coming on just a bit too strong at first but it settled down well after about a week of conditioning. One thing that will still need tweaking is the hop addition schedule and whirlpooling at lower temperatures to reduce a little bit of that bitterness kick.
This is a homebrewed beer that is not available for sale or distribution of any kind. It was brewed at home in small quantities to be shared only with family and friends simply out of passion for the craft and as a tribute to the music that inspired it.
