Weird shaped bottle. Pours out like a standard ipa, copper, nothing pink to it. Lacking a distinct aroma, maybe its mild with the almond, but all I keep thinking is how it is lacking hops.

Taste is plain. Again, where the hops yo? Bready, light caramel flavor to it. Should probably be classified as a Belgian ipa. Mild yeast flavor is greater than its hop quotient.

Something like $6 a bottle for this. Never again.

Kind of a different bottle shape, looks like normal ipa, don't know what the pink name is all about. Aroma was underwhelming, ipa should = hops. Almonds? Can't tell.

Taste seems just as much like a lighter alt as it does an ipa. Too expensive for getting a plain ride of toffee, caramel and minimal hops and almonds.

Pours a cloudy, pale orange colour, quite translucent with off-white head - a nice and irregular thin, dense crown left behind, but sparse bubbles remaining clinging to the glass as well. Looks alright, yeah.

Smell is fairly sweet and stiff, with brown sugar underlying, but a distinct note of citric hops and some ale esters of fresh apple and orange flesh as well. bit piney, but mostly fruity, can't say it's really appealing.

Taste is more interesting but not in a good way. Starts off grainy - caramel and a touch of pearl barley - develops more fruity, apple-esque ale ester flavours and then just goes nuts with sour notes, but also a big bready yeast character to dry it up. Notes of underripe apple, peach and apricot come through late. Ultimately ends with an off bitter note, that's indicative of too much early hopping but also just the wrong balance of flavours there. It becomes intense and not very pleasant.

Body is alright, bit of texture gives an alright feel as it goes down.

Not sure where it fits into the style and while I think adding pepper to an IPA sounds like a fine idea, it certainly misses the mark here. Tastes like sour beer gone wrong.

Pours into a snifter a very hazy amber color with significant cream colored head and fair retention of lacing. Aroma is faint: citrusy, yeasty, and slightly hoppy. Some grassiness is noted. Mouthfeel is light with medium carbonation. Taste is of basically a light belgian style ale. It barely tastes like an IPA. I pick up a lot of yeast, some grass, a touch of spice, faint orange and lemon peel, and a pinch of spice. It finishes with a highly metallic taste that really ruins what is barely a good beer drinking experience to begin with.

A hazy murky straw colored brew, a frothy head that leaves much lacing, some curtains.

Smelling weakly of nuts, apricots, lemon zest.

Starting sweet sugary, ripe grapes, bitter orange zest.

Low carbonation, smooth and slightly sticky, a medium body and dry finish.

Well, did not find any peppers, a rather modest IPA.
