3.6/5 rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A - Served with a dull golden yellow body...it was pretty cloudy actually...a white head stood about a finger tall and receded to a full ring...some lacing was left behind
S - Pure pineapple juice...the nose is spot on with real pineapple mixed with Dole Pineapple Juice...some pale malts and slight yeast come through as the beer warms
T - The pineapple doesn't have the chance to shine like it did in the nose...there is a blast of pineapple with the first sip, but the pale malts and other citric hops take over mid sip...the yeast strain stands strong throughout the beer...the finish tries to provide some pineapple and sweetness to overcome the yeast
M - Medium bodied...nice carbonation, some pineapple in the finish, spicy yeast
O - I love pineapple and the nose had my hopes high...but as with the Pale Ales from Spring House there is strong yeast presence that mutes the star flavors

4.61/5 rDev +27.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Look: Poured into a tulip. Hazy, deep golden yellow/orange color. BIG, white, fluffy head which retains itself for quite some time.
Smell: Hoppy, piney, and earthy, but with that right bit of fruity/citrus zest to it, to balance it all out.
Taste: Hoppy bitterness, but very mild. Smoothed out with a very fruity sweetness. I can kinda sense the pineapple, but I mainly just taste a fruity sweetness, which is good nonetheless. EDIT: Much further into the glass now, and the pineapple is starting to show it's face.
Feel: Very easy to drink. Medium bodied, smooth carbonation.
Overall: I'm actually very impressed with this APA. Much better than I expected. It has just the right amount of everything to make me happy.

3.89/5 rDev +7.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
LOOK: Pours a light golden color with with a white foam. Good clarity, a bit of lace.
SMELL: Tropical fruit in a mostly hoppy nature, you can definitely pick up pineapple, but also citrus and pine.
TASTE: Grapefruity citrus, pine and herb are in the forefront with some pineapple and mango in the sustain. Nice fruitiness but still holding very true to its ipa roots. Pale malts with a bready, grainy flavor which works as a fine template for the hops.
FEEL: Medium bodied, solid medium carbonation. Hop flavor lingers into the aftertaste.
OVERALL: This is a good option when you're in the mood for ipa and want something a little different. Not pineapple heavy, but it doesn't have to be. Fairly bitter actually, which was nice.
