Light gold in color with a quarter inch of creamy off white head. Light lacing. The overripe pineapple leads the nose along with honey and tropical hops. I taste a blend of pineapple, tropical hops, and honey. This definitely meant to be drank in warm weather, but still delivering a modest amount of flavor. The body is moderately carbonated, slightly sticky, and the pineapple gives the mouth a cooling sensation.

Appearance: Cloudy golden, with a small head and no lace from the can.

Aroma: Fruity all the way here — pineapple, citrus-forward as promised and yum!

Taste: Really pineapple-heavy, so this one is quite delicious! Body is fairly light, but this is a hell of a refreshing Summer-style IPA packed with taste. I would love to have this one again, for sure. Winner!

Pours an effervescent & slightly hazed gold with 2+ fingers of ivory colored head. Great lacing & good head retention


S: Pineapple & tangerine

T: Follows the nose, a little bready sweetness & grapefruit up front. Pomelo mixes with pineapple, plus a little dryness as this warms. Finishes with citrus bitterness & a little breadyness

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation & a little graininess, pretty good balance

Drinks easy, was hoping a for a little more flavor across the board. Worth a try

Pours a slightly hazy orange yellow with a finger of off-white foam.

Noticeable pineapple and tropical fruit notes right off the bat, followed by citrusy orange and lemon notes.

Pineapple, orange, and lemon fruit lends a subtle acidity to overall flavor, but sweetness sweeps over the palate on the swallow adding balance.

Medium-body, medium carbonation, sweet, slight tart acidity, fruity.

Overall, this beer is an easy drinking tropical summer brew. Somewhat sweeter than I prefer however.

A thanks to the commander of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a bright yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of lemons, apricots, a bit of funkiness. Taste is pineapple, lemons, some apricot, juicy, mild bitterness. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a good quality beer.

-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.
