Typically not a fan of IPAs. Picked this up hoping the pineapple would cut the typical bitterness. I was not disappointed. Not an overpowering smell, but very smooth. Can taste the pineapple on the tongue. Will not forget it is an IPA. Well worth a try.

12 oz. Draft pour.

It pours a pleasing rich copper that is crystal clear. The head was thin but probably due to the server as I had no trouble generating plenty of antique white foam and lace with a swirl of the glass.

The nose is weak but nice, tropical hops, though not as much hop aroma as I would like, and some caramel malt. The pineapple comes through very lightly with the tropical hop flavors along with sweet caramel and biscuit malt. While fairy sweet there is nothing cloying about the quick, clean finish. A soft medium body with moderate carbonation adds to the ease of drinking these.

I started my afternoon with a couple of these poolside and while probably a bit mediocre it was the best available option at the time and did not let me down.

From the growler, it pours a hazy amber with a moderate head. Citrus scent tickles the nose. The mouth is invigorated by the mild flavor from both the pineapple and the hops. I enjoyed it!

Poured from a chilled 12 oz. bottle into an ale glass.

Looks: Brown with some copper tones, some haziness, 1 finger of head with good aeration. Head dissipates quickly.
Aroma: Pineapple, mango, tropical fruit, some hops in the background, molasses.
Taste: Hops, malt, chocolate, some nice bitterness, very little fruit in the taste.
Mouthfeel: Good bit of hoppy bitterness at the back of the tongue.
Overall: An excellent beer. I've added this beer to my regular hoard.

One parting comment: I had this one first on draft at a local watering hole and it tasted better on draft. This may come as no surprise, but the difference in the draft and the bottle was substantial.

Just a light touch in the Pineapple expression on the nose and even lighter on the palate. Hop bitterness and the malty expression create the balance of flavors that make it a winner .
