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.

Good looking pale golden color. It smells very fresh with mild hop and roasted malt, and tastes similarly with great hop flavor. However, large bubbles look just like they taste with crisp carbonation that leaves me wanting more character and body. Due to the lack of body, it acts like a lighter beer.

Ok, I get it, it’s a “sessionable” IPA. it looks nice and smells nice but the taste is rather watery. It has the American hops you expect but lacks enough malt character to back it up. I guess that’s the trade off and I’ve had much worse. But I’ve also had much better. I don’t think you can make a truly sessionable ale that tastes worth a damn, stick to a good Pilsner for that. It’s ok.

The dominant flavor for me was canned pineapple juice, which while it was mixed with the holy hoppy IPAs I love, was not really what I was looking for... won’t drink again - much better stuff out there

Certainly not over powering in smell or taste. I’d call it a “dry” beer, whatever that means. Another way you might could describe this beer is sort of like a cross between your mainstream beers and an ipa.

Very drinkable ipa. Not real hop taste. U can catch a little abu but not much pour likes a miller lite or a light beer. Not alot of head.

This, like Dales is a fairly good combination of hops and body. The alcohol is not ridiculously high, but it is high enough. I don't really care much about the look of a beer. The aroma, taste and feel are quite good. The price is a bit high compared to Sierra Nevada Torpedo, which I do like better, although this is a decent alternative.

Poured into a tall clear pint glass. Has a golden honey color/straw, hazy, moderate carbonation, thick 1 inch head but little retention.

Smells of lemon and pineapple. Oranges. Other tropical fruits. Faint floral hops. Light toasty malt.

Taste is less prominent than the smell. Pineapple, oranges, and lemon peel. Piney and grassy. Herbal, minty tea leaves. Somewhat crisp and dry. Feels light and smooth.

Picked this up on a whim after ignoring it for several years. Just a solid, traditional IPA. Fruity hop character with a tasty finish. Easy to drink but I’ll pass on it in the future.
