Poured into a pint glass. Reviewed alongside Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA.
A: Very cloudy light orange with one-finger, white, foamy head that lasted a minute or two. Also, tiny particles. Great lacing.
S: Seriously, pineapple was the first thing I noticed. Then orange and subtle hops. I like the smell.
T: Light to moderate sweetness and solid hop bitterness. Fruit and bitter hops are what I taste primarily. Some malt (almost burnt flavor) in the finish.
M: Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Crisp and very warm going down.
O: The thick cloudiness with little particles and the pineapple aroma really stood out to me about this beer. But the head was disappointing compared to the Dogfish Head, and the flavor was a bit too fruity for my taste. The mouthfeel also wasn't as smooth as the Dogfish Head. Overall, interesting flavor, but the 90 Minute IPA was the real winner.
