Where do I start? Ah! Remember going to the grocery store and buying those gummies (fruit snacks), more so those shark bite gummies? Now you can experience it again but this time in beer. This beer gives off a nice pineapple flavor but a gummie pineapple flavor. Don't expect the real thing, if referring to pineapple, but expect the real thing when referring to gummies!

Good balance of IPA hoppy dryness and pineapple sweetness. A no brainier in the case of tall boy cans. Camping, beach, feeling "tropical" in your underwear. This is easy drinking, good party beer as a starter IPA and good enough for IPA fans.

At 6.1, this one will sneak up on you if you aren't careful. Totally sessionable and extremely tasty. On a hot day or around the pool, I think you would enjoy it, if you like IPA's. I must also add that it is very "user-friendly". I popped 5 of these at the pool one night and woke up feeling real 5 hours later. Very clean beer.

Sweet fruity, hoppy smell. Thick white head that dissipates to a thin wisp. Very good lacing. Thick and decent creamy mouthfeel, and moderate carbonation. Nice and hoppy with a malty and fruity sweetness. The pineapple notes add to the sweetness. Crispy and sweet, with the taste of a pretty good IPA. A good summery offering. Give it a try!

12 oz can poured into snifter.
Nice hazy honey-amber color with a tall fluffy head of 3 fingers, receding to a thick ring and leaving lace on the sides.

Bright pineapple aromas and some nice citrus-grapefruity hop. Orange and orange peel. Slight caramel malt.

Flavor is great! Really nice fruity explosion with pineapple, grapefruit, mango, and orange. A crisp pilsner malt base cuts straight up the middle to give both sharpness and acidity.

Feel is crisp and semi-creamy, semi-sticky. Slightly resinous finish matched with crispness.

Overall a very solid IPA I'd have again given the chance.

Goin' Coastal has a thick, off-white head, a murky, sediment-filled, orange appearance, and minimal glass lacing. Aroma is of tropical fruit and pale, sweet malt. Taste is of that, with white bread crust and low-level bitterness. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Goin' Coastal finishes mostly dry.
