On tap at an Old Chicago near my house. I was a little scared to try this one at first - haven't had a pineapple beer before, and I was afraid of how it would turn out.

The beer pours a beautiful golden-yellow-pineapple color with a tiny, disappearing head. Decent lacing left all the way down the glass. The smell was pretty sensational - a nice mash-up of hops, pines, pineapples, and citrus. Didn't smell or taste much malt. The beer does a nice job of balancing the pineapple flavor with the hop profile. At any one time, you can stop and taste BOTH citrus/pineapple and hops/pines in your mouth. This allows the flavors to compliment each other and work together, rather than compete and overpower. It also does a nice job of being sweet without being TOO sweet - this may be from the balance of bitterness that the hop profile adds. On the mouth, the beer has a medium body and is pretty wet and sticky.

This was a very unique brew that combined one of my favorite fruits with an excellent style of beer. Balanced fruit beers are always hard to pull off, but Odd Side Ales managed to do a very nice job with this one. Would have again in a heartbeat.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

$ 2.79/12 oz bottle at Lager Mill
Manufactured 07/03/14 at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of pineapple
Head average (4 cm), off white, creamy with small rocks, rapidly diminishing to 3 mm layer
Lacing very good – multiple wide rings of predominantly small bubbles
Body dark orange with slight haze
Flavor begins heavily sweet and definitely not tasting of pineapple, ends with a bitter aftertastes. No alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, oily, soft carbonation

This beer has a nice appearance and aroma. The palate is OK. A fruit beer should reflect the flavor and aroma of the fruit in question. I find the flavor to be quite unpleasant and not even vaguely resembling pineapple. This is one beer I won’t be trying again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance- It is not what i thought or imagined it would look like , I was thinking Big bright yellow golden , but no! Its dark amber hazy almost honey hue with a Biscutty white head that dissipates rather quick. Really the appearance is actually quite nice.

Smell- I can smell the hops , like a bitter hop smell, then you have this massive juice smell lingering as I swirl it. Sweet ripe pineapple. almost like fermented citrus smell.

Taste- I like a sweet IPA and this is all that and a bag of white castle sliders! Juicy , no big bitterness as the smell would have you believe. Sorta bitter on the finish and slight dryness to it . Very and I mean VERY drinkable! Has a slight stickiness you would get from pineapple juice and the tartness too!

Mouthfeel - Good! Sticky , carbonated , beer juice!

Overall- This another good beer from Michigan! Oddside ales is Getting the fucking job done is all I Know! But really folks you want to try a good , Juicy refreshing beer without the annoying bitterness, this is it !

3.56/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This ipa pours a hazy golden copper color with a small white head that gives way to a nice film and lacing. The nose delivers on the name. An abundance of pineapple and tropical fruit hop notes with some pine and floral hops underneath as well as a mice malty sweetness. The flavor lacks the pineapple specificity of the nose. It instead tastes just like 100s of other American ipas. The malt is also a little too prevailing. It is overly sweet like many of Oddsides beers. The mouthfeel is almost too sticky. This was okay but not worth seeking out.
