Look is golden with some cloudiness. Smell is hoppy with a hint of the pineapple. Taste is similar. Not too hoppy but also not an overwhelming pineapple taste. A nice balance. Good find for a mix-six pack.

Poured from a bottle into a pint nonic glass. Has a yellow to orange color with a lot of carbonation. Very nice hop taste. Not overboard. I will probably buy tihis again.

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.

Bottle from Edgemont. Unfiltered burnt orange with two finger white head and retaining lace. Fresh smell of pineapples, brett?, burnt hop and candied sugar. Flavor is juicy but only minorly hoppy and not much bite however it is chewy. Very interesting. I like it.

12 oz

Pours slightly cloudy amber orange, fine pillowy eggshell head retains indefinitely at about a quarter inch.

Smells of biscuit, honey, and piney and citrus hops.

Flavor is of biscuit and honey with a piney hoppiness and a mix of citrus and pineapple fruitiness. The pineapple is subtle and blends well with the other flavors.

Medium body with stinging carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Nice, decent IPA, beautiful pour. Otherwise solid, but the pineapple adds a nice little twist that makes this stand out. Makes this worth trying and very drinkable, something I'd probably look for again in the future.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pineapples, oranges. Taste is pine, citrus, pineapple is present but rather light, moderate bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Slightly hazy amber liquid coming from the 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, decent head falls to a ring.

Smell has a distinct pineapple twang to it, malty sweetness backed up with some herbal resin. Flavor is a bit doughy, some toasted bread and honey like sweetness at first, middle starts to kick up the fruit, definite pineapple juice here, finishes with lingering pineapple and some hoppy bitterness.

Probably the most authentic pineapple flavor I've gotten from a beer, and it's a little better than Pineapple Sculpin (surprisingly), although this beer could benefit from an additional dose or two of hops, as it tastes more like a Pale Ale than an IPA.
