3.09/5  rDev -16.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Color is a lightly hazy yellow, with little head.

The smell is tropical, with lots of pineapple and citrus, with a slight medicinal tone to it.

The taste is bitter pineapple, that´s the best way to describe it. The balance isn't quite there, and there is side note of gasoline that bothers me quite a bit.

Soft carbonation, almost to the point of being kinda flat.

Brewski have been hitting it out of the park lately in pretty much all styles, but this isn't great. Unbalanced, and these weird chemical notes in the smell and taste put me off a bit. It's decent, but no more.

3.36/5  rDev -9.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

The colour is cool pale yellow; the liquid cloudy. The two finger head is white and airy, it sinks down to a thin lid leaving lots of lacing.

The smell is bitter and hoppy with chemical notes of ammoniac in the bitterness. Semi-sweet notes of fresh pineapples, apricots and mango. Hints of rubber.

The taste is bitter like an IPA, with citric notes of lemon and lime. Growing sweetness with pineapples, apricots and green grapes. Hints of pine needles and orange juice. Light to medium body. The aftertaste is less sweet with ongoing flavours of mixed exotic fruit juice, tart green grapes and pineapple ice cream. The finish is dry with mixed exotic fruits and banana skids.

The carbonation is medium strong, the many small fresh bubbles are short-lived. The liquid is smooth.

The bitterness and the sweetness doesn’t work together, at times it feels like a carbonated dry hopped pineapple juice.
