-spiegelau ipa glass.

A: Soft pineapple-orange coloring has a fairly good clarity, with a heavy hand of macro-bubbles storming inside. A rocky, dull white head is steady, foamy, leaving a very generous show of lace on the vessel.

S: Soft straw and a very light dried fruitiness. Light tangerine and orange peel of very low awareness overall. No visible can dating, cannot verify age, but this was lacking in complexity and strength.

T: Dry tangerine peel hopping with some dried lemon peel. Some tart pineapple, dry flowery hopping with some dry grains/hay for backing. Floral citrus with a small funk of orange-lemon twang off the tongue.

M: Medium mouthful, lacking crispness, with a small floral lacing of citrus/lemon hops coating on the tongue. Unexciting, nothing that stands out.

O: Overall was expecting a lot more tropical fruitiness by virtue of the name and juicy can design. The flavor was more dry, floral orange and lemon peel, the pineapple more tart, dry, and reserved. Could not verify age/canning date which may be a base factor.

Just pulled this out of the back of the fridge, thanks to Drew maybe, don't remember. Anyways, best by 7/27, so right on the cusp and figured I better drink it.

Pours a nice frothy almost 1 finger head that fades semi slowly, nice retention, a bit of lacing, very murky hazy lemonade color.

Nose some tropical not a ton, mostly pineapple, grapefruit and citrus, maybe a touch of lemon, maybe guava paste thing, and some passion fruit, I guess more tropical than I initially thought, some decent cracker malt underneath.

Taste brings plenty of tropical fruits, loads of pineapple, almost pineapple juice and fresh pineapple chunks, plenty of citrus zest, a little lemony and grapefruit, touch of passion fruit tartness, some juicy fruit, then cracker creamy malt, flaked wheat, a faint touch of honey but not sweet. Finish is quite dry thanks to the honey probably, a little wheat and malt, plenty of pineapple lingering, fair to lighter bitterness

Mouth is med bod, nice fluffy carb.

Overall not bad, loads of pineapple but tastes fresh fruit and juice, some other tropical notes, decent malt base, fair bitterness, enjoyable.

Aroma is tropical fruit and kind of big sweetness. The flavor is tropical fruit/pineapple, malts, medium sweet in the middle and a tart/bitter finish.
