on tap at spring house taproom
Slightly clouded golden yellow color, one-finger crop of white head resting on top, fading into some rings of splotchy lacing.
Intense tropical and pineapple scents - like fresh cut fruit with a formidable hop punch. Bready malts, slight sweetness.
Hoppy, fruity and bitter up front with pineapple, citrus and tropical fruit. Light sweetness, strong (borderline abrasive) bitterness nips at the tongue. This reads more like an IPA to me, with a milder backbone and a dash of caramel. Finishes fruity with more pineapple and dry hoppiness.
Medium body, well carbonated, dry and bubbly on the tongue. Aggressively fruit forward and interesting - this was my first beer during my visit and I was pretty excited to try more after this.

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.
