A decent enough IPA. Nice color and head. Aroma and taste are much more grapefruit with malt background than pineapple. Very smooth mouthfeel. In fact, the pineapple was just marginally there in the finish. Perhaps a bit of a gimmick but nevertheless a decent beer that's worth a try.

12 oz bottle with best before dating

Citric nose with the advertised pineapple

Pours typical almond amber, lasting medium khaki cap, leaving low sheeting and decent looking fine mini fileds of lacing.


Tasty and citric,with fruity goodness all over the palate. Pleasant and highly drinkable IPA

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.

This IPA is a bright golden yellow with a very slight haze in its body. It develops a frothy cap of off-white head that holds up for the duration and leaves plenty of creamy patching behind.
Hops come out nicely, fresh and clean, with grassy and citric overtones, maybe some herbal leaf sneaking in before a bit of pineapple juice comes in. It slides in underneath but is certainly noticeable and hangs out there for the rest of the sip. Sweet malts bring the balance and stay clean until the end, when a bit of grains come in, and something slightly steely ends up lingering ever so briefly, just a touch.
The feel is light and bright, crisp and mostly clean. It has a bit of smoothness to it, for the most part, but ends up a little thin in the end.

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.

Appearance: Clean amber, with a thick head of nearly white suds and spotty lace.

Aroma: Incredible pineapple essence all over the place. Delicious already!

Taste: Tropical fruit and pineapple right up front, hopped-up plentifully with a lingering near-bitter finish. Refreshing lighter body, and this is a remarkably drinkable IPA.
