Center-pour into tulip...
A: hazy medium amber body, finger's worth of ivory head that didn't persist; negligible bits of lace
S: made me think of orchards of pale-fleshed ripe fruits; presumably this is attributable in part to the use of pineapple in the brewing
T: I liked what the pineapple did for the flavor profile - you have a nice complement of pale malt flavors and the fruitiness of the yeasts and hops; the pineapple provides a lush flavor that is suggestive of holiday feasts' and treats' spices and fruits. Citric/acidic notes linger.
M: warming, full, soft, fuzzy; bit of a bite on the aftertaste, a little bitter, peachy sweet
O: I enjoy the sweet strong pale ales like this. This one in particular has a refined but lush character - it is suitable for warming and slow drinking. I'd buy this again. Perfect for winter holidays and cold weather drinking - a great December drink.
