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 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.

This is a good beer. IPAs are growing on me.

L: Poured a clear straw color with a nice white head of about an inch. Good lacing and dissipation.
S: The nose for me did not come through that much. Got some citrus and spice notes.
T: This is one of my favorite IPA samples. You do get pineapple and spices with some toast elements on the back.
F: Medium carbonation and a fairly medium body.
O: Refreshing and with a clean finish this IPA is a solid example of the style. .

This is a great summer beer when you want something with a bit of oomph but still sessional.

Color is golden a clear whither nice head.

Nose is floral and citrus with a touch of malt.

Discourse is lightly malty, citrusy with Adobe pine.

Look: golden straw with one finger of white head

Smell: hops and citrus, fresh and quite pleasant

Taste: hops, citrus, bit of pine, dankness

Feel: reasonably carbonated, what you'd expect in a IPA

Overall: I really like this beer although I can see how some wouldn't. Full flavored for a session brew. Good price and refreshing.
