Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Notes / Commercial Description:
There are few moments as inspirational as those spent wandering the tables of Beer Advocate’s Extreme Beer Fest. Some of our friends, some of our heroes, and a lot of our inspirations reveling, sharing ideas, and flavors. Last year while sipping with the team of Against The Grain inspiration hit. The “Need a Bigger Boat” recipe dressed with Zythos and Pacific Jade dry hopping, getting another wrinkle of dankness with the addition of pineapples smoked by our new friends. Drink SS Kentucky and enjoy the NJ/KY trade routes.

I don't see how anybody can't smell the pineapple. The taste doesn't quite follow the nose exactly, but the pineapple and slight smokiness is there in the taste as well. Another really good beer from Carton.
