Notes / Commercial Description:
How do you cram as much hop & malt flavor and aroma as possible into a beer but make it crushable too? That’s the challenge we answered with PINNER Throwback IPA. At 4.9% ABV and 35 IBUs, this drinkable IPA uses several varieties of hops to target the ever-evolving flavor. With tropical fruits, citrus juices, pineapple and spice berry up front in the aroma and flavor, the biscuit & toasted bread at the back balance out all the hops and make a great finish to go on to your next can of PINNER. It’s the perfect beer for a little sip, sip, give.

Kind of a nondescript beer. Good enough, not great, far from lousy.
Gold color, modest white head, a little lace.
Faint pine, faint citrus aroma.
Ditto for the taste.
Light-bodied.

Hoje dia de saborear uma boa cerveja IPA americana, um tipo que tenho sempre um certo receio de saborear, mas que aqui se provou algo bem melhor que o esperado. A apresentação da cerveja é bonita, mas sem exageros. A latinha é branca com detalhes prateados e bege, que parece remeter ao dourado, mas nada brilhante, chama mais atenção do prateado que nada mais é que o alumínio da latinha sem pintura. A cerveja em si é uma IPA mais comum, um âmbar opaco e levemente intenso, algo bem esperado para esse tipo de cerveja sem muitas surpresas. O aroma da cerveja é bem comum da IPA, algo um pouco forte e levemente enjoativo, nada muito além do esperado. No sabor é onde moram os diferenciais. O sabor com certo amargor característico é facilmente sentido, mas é muito bem acompanhado por um outro sabor que suaviza e diferencia a cerveja, algo cítrico e interessante, que não deixa a cerveja ficar enjoativa ou exagerada no amargor, aqui há uma certa mistura de sabores para ter um equilíbrio muito bom entre a IPA e algo mais suave, e o mais interessante é que isso é sentido em goles mais longos, que mostra uma regularidade no sabor, quanto maior o gole, mais o sabor fica constante. Já em goles mais curtos, o amargor domina mais o sabor, deixando a experiência um pouco mais enjoativa e menos diferente de uma IPA mais comum. No geral, uma cerveja que tem boas características no sabor, formando uma mistura agradável e até mesmo refrescante para uma IPA, mas tendo que saborear da forma certa para sentir essa experiência, de resto, tudo lembra bastante uma IPA mais comum.

Vigorous pour yields a one inch white head over a bright, light yellow body with some lacing. Nose of light pine, slight citrus, and even slighter tropical fruit. Very nice and light, and very refreshing on the palate, Good feel and overall a great session beer. Cheers!

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a light transparency about it. Slim less than a quarter finger white foamy head dissipated extremely quickly and had barely any lacing. The smell had a sweet to bitter blend of oranges and lemon rind. A light fresh grassy sweetness invades and carries into the taste leaving a combined bittersweet citrus semi-dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability. The carbonation seemed standard for an AIPA and could be perhaps toned down to lean towards the "session" quality. Overall, I say this was a pretty good session IPA I could have again though the carbonation did seem a bit harsher than other session IPA’s I’ve had.

I had this for the first time in the Denver airport. It was there "special seasonal" offering. Very refreshing and like most of the reviews say this is one IPA you can crush all day long.
