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.

Tap. Crystal clear gold with one finger head. Moderate amounts of berry, citrus, tropical fruit. Very easy drinking with just a hint of malt. Lighter on the bitterness. Medium finish.

Low carbonation, light in color. Aroma is light, fruity hops, with a touch of honey. Nice hoppy flavor, not too bitter, which is expected for a session IPA. Slightly viscous mouthfeel with a dry finish.

I enjoy this beer. It may be every bit as good as All Day IPA, but I’ll have to try them side by side to picke a winner.

This beer should be way more popular. Has Founders done better marketing with All Day or is it that I’m in the Midwest and it’s just a local choice thing. Maybe it’s different in the West and this is more popular

Poured from a 19.2 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of tropical fruits. Taste is citrus, light pine, very little bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall it ain't bad, but it just doesn't feel like I drank an AIPA.

S: When pouring a beer, if I call smell the fruitiness as I pour, that is a good thing. Up close,smells a bit more tropical side. Tangerine?
L: Tiny carb bubbles, no head and slight lace. Light orange to yellow.
F:: Dry. Little cream. Little burn. Tangerine aftertaste more like a candy.
T: Here's the thing with session beers for me. They can be light with less alcohol, but they need to hit at least one note of the style in flavor. This is sweet but dry. Hoppy but cut off at the knees. Yes, the tangerine is there but cut off with no follow through. Hollow.
O: It smelled great, but tastes like hops water to me.

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.
