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.

Pours bright golden in color. White head with someone large bubbles but good lacing. Low bitterness, strong pineapple, tropical fruit, and piney notes on the nose with a fairly light and delicate mouthfeel. Great beer and easily drinkable.

Golden color with a huge thick head with great retention and leaving laces.
Aroma with notes of pine, fresh oranges, a bit of passion fruit and bread.
Flavor with notes of pine, resin, spices, passion fruit drops, red berries, some biscuit and bread malt sweetness, distant mango and yeast. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
Highly drinkable American IPA with a nice combination of hops delivering pine (not really predominant as names implies), citrus and berries notes.

Easily a session beer that has a very light hops flavor...some maltyness...pretty light in color and flavor,,,,can't figure out why I am looking at the same can in the picture..but mine says Brevard, NC instead of Colorado on the bottom..everything else exactly the same. Must be a brewery their but it's not listed as a brewery site as far as I can find.

Pours a clear golden copper with medium head that leaves decent lace. Nose is more pine than citrus, and a touch of dankness. Taste is pretty darn classic...I guess that's why they call it throwback. Firm bitterness that's not over-the-top, good pine with fruit and citrus rounding it out. Overall, a darn good beer for throwing them back and packs in a lot for 4.9%.

Poured into a pint glass at 40 degrees. Appearance: A frothy creamy two finger head with okay retention. The color of the beer is medium light straw with a touch of haziness. Carbonation bubbles do dance with this engima.

Lots of tropical and citrus notes on the nose, with toasted bread, yeast, biscuit, some pine and resin.

The beer has load of tropical and citrus notes with some floral, and pine notes. The beer also has pine resin, toasted bread, biscuit, subtle earthiness, and yeast.

The mouthfeel of the beer is medium light, medium carbonation, medium light astringency, and medium finish.

I was surprised this beer is under five percent alcohol. I do think it has a lighter body in the beer and the hops are there but not as pronounced as I would like; however, this a very easy going beer to drink.

Pours a clear gold with a white head. Smells of tropical fruits, hops, and malt. Tastes of pineapple, sweet malt, mildly bitter hops, mango, and citrus zest. Medium-light body and medium carbonation. Overall a pretty good IPA.
