I had this on draught at Søle's Bar+Bottle location in Easton, PA. 12 oz. pour served in a stemless glass. It pours a cloudy honey orange with a full finger of bright white head and creamy lacing that lasted through the pour. The nose includes lactose, pineapple, grapefruit, pine needles, and floral hops. The taste opens with delicious pineapple puree, sweet lactose, lemon. Both the smell and taste of the pineapple accentuates as the glass warms. The Mosaic and Centennial hops are flavorful but delicate. There's no bite to them. They just blend with the tropical fruit. This ale reminds me of a tropical drink at a resort. The mouth feel is amazing! Super plush and creamy with pleasant carbonation, and a punchy 7.8% ABV. This truly is a great DIPA and I look forward to the next time it's released in cans.

I traded out for this beer a while ago, as the date on the bottom of the can was from December 6 of last year. Most of Sole's beers that I've had were quite enjoyable but this one may have taken the cake. Yes, there was pineapple in here as this was nearly the epitome of that tropical fruit, from start to finish!

This had the look of a juice bomb from the get-go, as the beer was blonde, cloudy, and slick as soon as it had a hazy and juicy pour as soon as it came out of the can. Nice and lively aroma to this as the beer was full of tropical, earthy, and full notes to it, which was not surprising to it given how much pulp was in this brew. A juice bomb if there ever was one, this beer had a wonderfully wet mouthfeel to it that equaled the amount of pulp and dankness that could be found to the taste. Minor amounts of stone fruit pith and dry, citrus juice could be detected here as well, which was not surprising given the type of beer this was and the way the label came across. Yes, this held up well over all of these months!

With this much juice, who knew that there was alcohol in the mix as well? It was here but thankfully, not a distraction or a deterrent from the wonderful juice and sweetness that was present. If there was a non-alcoholic version of this, I'd have it daily. This was that good and enjoyable, and possibly the best beer from Sole that I've had. Can't wait to get another can of this!
