Notes: Put your feet in the sand with a beer in your hand. Our tropical and refreshing blonde ale is kissed with gnarly waves of juicy pineapple. A dose of floral, American hops and crisp pilsner malt makes this beer ideal for any sun-soaked day.

Yellow and hazy with no carbonation and four fingers of off white head.

Smells of pineapple malt.

The taste is a pineapple and wood.

Very light body with moderate carbonation.

I got this in Waynesville North Carolina and I’m drinking it in Redding California, 21st, 2020.

Light golden, slightly hazy, almost no head; Mild aroma (I asked my spouse, a non-drinker, if she could smell pineapple. She said maybe she could.) It does feel a little tangy. The flavor is quite mild, slightly sweet. I never would guess it has pineapple.

Bottle #2: Flavorful. Good on a hot afternoon, right out of the bottle.

Got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 1/24/2018. Pours slightly hazy medium golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of juicy pineapples, lemon, orange, grapefruit, citrus zest, peach, pear, melon, light pine, cracker, white bread dough, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of pineapple, citrus hops, fruity yeast, and moderate pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of juicy pineapples, lemon, orange, grapefruit, citrus zest, peach, pear, melon, light pine, cracker, white bread dough, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very mild pine, zesty, floral, grassy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes pineapples, lemon, orange, grapefruit, citrus zest, peach, pear, melon, light pine, cracker, white bread dough, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of pineapple, citrus hops, fruity yeast, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a solid malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying flavors after the finish. Slightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy, fairly crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very nice fruited American blonde ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of pineapple, citrus hops, fruity yeast, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. Very well balanced between clean pils malts, pineapple, citrus hops, and fruity yeast. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.
