Juice Invader - PineappleJuice Invader - Pineapple
Notes: This hazy IPA is dry-hopped with extraordinary amounts of Galaxy hops from Australia and fermented on an otherworldly amount of juicy pineapple!

Canned 9/4/19. Brewed with Galaxy hops and you guessed it, pineapple.
L: Gorgeous vibrant hazy yellow. From the pour, about 2 fingers of a bubbly white cap formed and retained quite nicely. Lacing moderately coats the edge of the glass.
S: Tons of pineapple. In fact, pineapple is what I mostly smell. Hints of orange, grapefruit and lemon and a touch of grass but man, it smells like a Disneyland dole whip.
T: Taste is great as well. Pineapple initially with a lemony finish, translating to a lemongrassy aftertaste with lingering notes of pineapple, grapefruit and mango. The pineapple is dominant, but it doesn't seem to cut down the integrity of the galaxy hop profile much either, which is something I am admiring.
F: Medium in body but light in weight. It is soft and borderline silky smooth. Carbonation is moderate adding proper fizzle on the tongue. No booze.
O: If you're a fan of pineapple, I'd say go for it. It is more pineapple-forward than anything else. That said, it doesn't lose the IPA-based foundation to a degree that I've heard others complain about. The smell is honestly fantastic as well. Can't go wrong with hoppy pineapple juice. Plus, the abv is in my preferential range. I am very glad to try, and would drink again. Cheers!
