Very Good
Pineapple Orange IPAPineapple Orange IPA
Notes: This juicy IPA was double dry-hopped with a blend of citrus forward hops along with real pineapple and orange puree. Oats and wheat join the hops and fruit to create a soft and delicate mouthfeel reminiscent of a refreshing glass of juice.

Undated (WTF - I wish all IPAs were dated) can into pint glass. Pours a hazy amber with a nice, off-white head. Initial impression is - surprise! - like orange-grapefruit juice. Mouthfeel is clean and refreshing. Finish leaves a slight bitterness on the back of the tongue. Good hot weather IPA.

Thrilled to be the 10th review of this fruit infused IPA which as they go, is very good.
a) The first sign i the head, lace, stickiness retention over the hazed, pulpy orange/amber body. Lively and alive, not falling flat.
s) The fruit departs and distracts a bit from the hops aroma profile and smells fresh squeezed.
t) The freshness, juicyiness of this IPA set it apart from many fruit IPAs, but you must like fruit which arrives about 2/3 pineapple and the balance orange fresh squeezed.
f) not cloying, fresh, a tad too sweet, but cleans up decently in the finale. juicy as can be.
o) SHould be in the mix with any fruit forward IPAS including Stone, Carton and my favorites, would finish mid-pack but respectable - and DIFFERENT by being so fresh squeezed in style which is what they set out to do.

Dry hopped deliciousness, smelled a bit too sweet of pineapple for my taste, but was pleasantly surprised by lighter pineapple taste than my nose thought was coming, hops are lightly accented by the pineapple & orange, light carbonation, finishes light on the bitterness.

Wyndridge Farm Brewing "Pineapple Orange IPA"
12 fl. oz. can, "CANNED ON 01/10/19"
$2.49 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: Fairly average looking label, but OK. It pours a hazy golden-orange body beneath a finger-thick head of white that holds fairly well before falling to just a thin surface covering. Some nice lacing is left behind where the foam once was. The aroma is clearly of pineapple and orange with a bit of raspy pineapple shell and citrus pith, and a touch of hoppy pine as well. Not surprisingly the flavor follows and it's sweetish and fruity but also raspy and bitter at about 60 IBUs. As might be expected given the bitterness, it finishes mostly dry although the fruitiness remains and lingers for some time along with some bready malt and the aforementioned bitterness so it's really kind of bitter sweet. The orange and pineapple flavors are fairly solid and you can't fault it there. In the mouth it's medium-light in body and crisp with a standard, fine-bubbled carbonation. It's interesting in that it leans towards becoming a juicy NE IPA style beer while at the same time it's really an old school IPA.

I got a can of this off the single shelf at a Kroger just down the road from south metro ice in Dayton,OH. It poured a hazy orangish with thin white head that is not leaving any lace. The scent had citrus hints. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with orange and pineapple flare. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a good beer.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a very cloudy bright yellow with a tiny white head. The aroma is pineapple and malt. The taste is pineapple and some mild hop bitterness.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into an IPA glass

L: Clear light golden pour with fluffy white head. Nice lacing.

S: Tropical and sweet... pineapple and citrus. Name kinda gives it away.

T.F: Follows the nose. Light crackery grains and sweet tropical fruits. Lots of pineapple... lighter orange/citrus flavors.. mango mixed in. Very modest bitterness... but the fruit addition actually works well here. Light bodied... creamy on the mouth (love those oats). Tropical fruit finish.

O: A nice light summer IPA... tropical and fruity... a little on the sweet side but not in a bad way. Really tasty.

Pineapple Orange pours a cloudy orange color, with a nice head. Sweet fresh fruit aromas. Flavor has a nice sweet, but not too sweet, pineapple orange flavor, with a mellow bitterness for balance. Good body and feel. Overall, a nice balanced fruit IPA.

From a can.
Hazy, pale amber body with a very good white head.
Aroma: a bit dank. Hop forward.
Flavor: mainly as the aroma suggests but more citrus including some orange but the pineapple is largely Mia. Moderate strength and bitterness for style.
Medium body with medium carbonation.

This was a fairly good tasting beer with pineapple and orange flavors. But what surprised me was it had a LOT of sediment floating throughout the glass which was not appealing while I was drinking it. Probably an unfiltered beer. Despite this, it was a good tasting IPA.

New Beer Sunday (Week 682) CANtinues at least a little while longer. I got home last night from Big Daddy Dan's annual St. Patrick's Day party ~ 2300, got a nice night's sleep in spite of the recent study that shows that you do not sleep as well with alcohol in your system. Heck, I drank more whisky, Irish & Scotch, than I have in quite some time & I slept just fine, thank you very much! I awoke rested & ready & I really acCANplished what I set out to do today - a brewery horizontal of Tattered Flag CANs in CANticipation of an upCANming visit next week. The CANQuest (tm) is a sturdy, ongoing machine & must be fed, so I am having Pablo's "Just the (at least) One More".

From the CAN: "This juicy IPA was double dry-hopped with a blend of citrus forward hops along with real pineapple and orange puree. Oats and wheat join the hops and fruit to create a soft and delicate mouthfeel reminiscent of a refreshing glass of juice."; "Farm Made in PA"; "Good Beer * Hunt Series".

I Crack!ed this CAN open & engaged in a few moments of quiet CANtemplation before CANtinuing with a slow, gentle Glug. The hour grows late & I do have a CANmitment tomorrow, but I plowed onwards. Color was an oh-so-faintly-hazy Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7) that I wondered if it might not be a slight chill haze from my very cool reefer. An in-glass swirl raised just over a finger of foamy, rocky, bone-white head that quickly fizzled away into wisps, leaving decent lacing in its wake. Nose smelled like the CANned Dole Pineapple-Orange Juice of my youth at my maternal grandparents' house on the morning after a sleepover. Everybody used it to wash down pills, either vitamins for us kids or meds for them. AIPA? Well, not a lot of inherent bitterness on the nose, so it might have been difficult to identify that way. , However, the proof of the Pineapple (Orange IPA) is in the tasting. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, not watery, but not much beyond it, either. The taste was citrusy and I definitely got both pineapple & orange, but it lacked the bitterness that is a hallmark of the style. It also had a bready sweetness along with a caramel-toffee quality. In total, it reminded me of a liquefied pineapple upside-down cake. My maternal grandmother was a whiz at making them & she taught me to the point that when I took HomeEc in High School, I was well ahead of the curve. Finish was ,,, hmm ... semi-dry or semi-sweet. A CANundrum, to be sure, but not fitting of the style. There was nothing intrinsically wrong with this beer, but if we are to rate to style & not to taste, some of these beers gotta take their lumps. Sorry.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a beige/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is as advertised, pineapples and oranges. Taste is oranges, malts, some pineapples, moderate bitterness. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.
