Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Poured clear golden with nice thick head. Pineapple and citrus on the nose. Very smooth with definite pineapple in the taste. Nice drinkable beer. Definitely could see this as a chillin on the beach brew.

16oz pour, pint glass, at The Ginger Man, Fort Worth, TX.

Clear copper beer with a whitish head that leaves some good lacing.

Juicy pineapple, tropical hops, kiwi, gummy bears.

Pineapple juice, grapefruit, deliciousness. It's a fruity, juicy IPA.

Medium body with carbonation that is gentle, not soft, but gentle. It could probably be perked up a bit to good effect.

The pineapple is done very well.

16 oz can in Atlanta.
This is a very fruity IPA, particularly in the aroma. The flavor is more complex and had some floral and herbal aspects in addition to pineapple and hints of other tropical fruits. A bit less bitter than average for style.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thin foamy head. Head retention is minimal. Lacing is decent. Light pineapple aroma. Pineapple in taste but has more of a lager finish to me. Some mild bitterness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Decent IPA look and the scent was good, a mix of citric and pineapple on the nose. Were it failed was in the flavor, very piney and somewhat bitter with most of the pineapple missing that was on the nose. Otherwise decent carbonation and feel to this brew.

Poured out a clear, golden color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of pineapple and toasted caramel. It tasted of sweet toasted caramel with a pineapple kick.

Horse to a dark orange almost a little ambarish but a pinky with finger in head lacing pretty much throughout on the glass the smell is fantastic but the taste is just okay. The pine throws me off kind of wish they had included that in this beer it's okay I expected a little more from it though.

Interesting mix of tropical fruit and pine in the aroma, pours a slightly hazy dark amber with a thin white head. The initial taste is full of malt sweetness, fading into pineapple with a slight bitter finish. The pineapple is there, but subtle. Full bodied, with a touch of the hop slickness that you get with a good IPA. Overall, not a bad fruited IPA.

Got a great deal on a 12 pack variety deal. This was one of them and it's very good! I was concerned about the label of IPA WITH PINEAPPLE.......not a big fruit beer fan. But, the pineapple is very, very subtle and all the citrusy hops flavors balance in well. Get this variety pack if you can.

It pours a pale yellow with a nice foamy head with nice lacing on the glass. The smell is of citrus and some pine. The taste is a very mild pineapple with a more bite from the hops. Overall a good drink.
