Pours a slightly hazed gold with a thumb of cream colored head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Pineapple aplenty & oranges

T: Pineapple & dryness, a little green melon & lime up front. Dryness, lime & pineapple as this warms, but not enough sweetness or acidity to really please me. Finishes with lime & pineapple notes, plus dryness

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation, decent balance

Drinkable, but not memorable or enjoyable

Looks like a standard apa. Slightly hazy golden with a fluffy white head that sticks to the glass after it dissipates. It smells a little bit like tropical fruit, mostly pineapple with not much else present. It tastes like the nose would lead you to believe, but has a pleasant bitter finish that one would expect from a classic American pale ale. It goes down very smoothly, and it's not overly sweet or bitter so it's easy to drink. Overall pretty good. I wouldn't buy a 4 pack for myself, but when I see it on draft I'd get one.

Bright ever so slightly hazy golden pour with two fingers puffy white head.
Aroma steals the show - blast of pineapple, tropical fruit, a bit of toffee like malt and citrus hops.
Pineapple on the palate also but with a grassy flavour, tropical fruit, citrus - slightly dank, a bit of a floral bittersweet character but pineapple remains at the centre.
Light to medium bodied with brisk carbonation - tropical sweetness remains with only a light residual bitterness. Very drinkable.

16 oz can, dated 8/10/20, into Bearded Iris Willi Beecher glass.

Pours a foggy half transparent blonde body with streaks of amber, and a creamy tightly woven cap of 1 finger. It stays like that for awhile but leaves some thick lacing as it subsides.

Aroma is great! From the first click of the can, pineapple fills the room and is at the forefront of this beer. Behind that are some funky Citra notes with slight orange juice and pink grapefruit.

Flavor is a little faded/papery on the palate but surprisingly not too bad for 11 weeks old. The flavors are still present but I'm not as much of a fan of them as I was the aroma. It opens with grassy bitterness and lemon peel, follows with a flash of pineapple, and then some sweat sock and funky papaya or other over-ripe tropical fruit. Almost seltzer-water-y. But with hops.

Feel is clingy and starchy and has a lot of busy carbonation with a mild alcohol heat and copious hop cling. It does not finish clean.

Overall, this was an okay beer but I think I liked their "Infinite Citra" a little better. This is my last can of the pack so I've had a little cuddle time with this one. Ultimately, as you'd expect, their best sellers Lizard King and Ninja Vs. Unicorn are leagues above this. But if you're sick of those and still want the Pipeworks "flavor", this is a decent weekender. I wonder what it would be like at only a couple days/weeks old. For $10 this is an okay to fair 4 banger.

Price paid : $9.99 / 4 pack
Would buy again : if I could find it fresher

16oz can with a date. Cool can art

Nice and light, very refreshing. Almost tastes like a pineapple La Croix (i dunno if that exists). Clean cracker malt, stankity hops, and juicy pineapple rind

No idea if it's natural flavor or "natural flavor" but I don't care, it's tasty

Balanced pale ale with sweet and tart pineapple profile. Refreshing, smooth, and crushable. Loved it!

L: Hazy amber color, three finger white head, messy lacing, light carbonation.

S: Pineapple, hops, juicy. Smells wonderful!

T: Pineapple, hops, malts.

F: Medium bodied, very heavily carbonated.

O: The beer is decent but the extreme carbonation makes it hard to drink.

Look: in my opinion one of the coolest cans I have ever seen. Guppy huffing bubbles, tiki and a volcano eruption. Name a better trio.

Smell: bubble puffin

Taste: lotta flavor and something to switch up if it’s summer time

Feel: was bagging (cornholing) hard while drinking this. So only a decent buzz..

Overall: love it. Would get again. Summer beer. Winter beer. Anytime beer.

Pours clear, bright gold in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is big pineapple and straw. High carbonation, light bodied, slightly bitter. Has a huge pineapple burst and this holds its taste a lot more than some of the other Pipeworks ipas that have made it out here. I will be getting this again.

Pours a cloudy pineapple juice color with a huge white cap. Great retention and very nice lacing. Aroma is tropical, pineapple and a hint of pine. Flavor follows the nose, sweet fruit up front with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Feel is light bodied, a touch watery. Overall a ho hum offering, but given the low abv expected.
