1.59/5  rDev -60.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 3 | overall: 1

From a 16oz can, dated 11/12/20. Served in an IPA glass.

Pours a cloudy-hazy, super-pale and watery-appearing orange with two fingers of frothy, egg white-like foam. Retention is unremarkable, leaving some minor spit-like lacing.

Strong aroma of grape koolaid... wtf?

Tastes like lollipops. I know it’s supposed to be pineapple but I get Welch’s grape juice. Let’s just skip right ahead to mouthfeel and get this over with.

Feel is thin and tacky, medium-sticky bodied with ample fine carbonation.

Overall, nasty.

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a snifter glass. Had a yellowish color and an extremely cloudy consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Below average lacing.

S: A very nice aroma of tropical fruit, hops, vanilla, malt, and citrus fruit.

T: Tasted of a small amount of malt (mostly in the finish, but overpowered by the fruit elements), lots of tropical fruit (pineapple, in particular), a moderate amount of hops (not overdone, but certainly present), a surprising amount of vanilla, and some citrus fruit (orange, especially). This is a light, sweet, creamy and lively flavor. Delicious.

F: A fair amount of carbonation with a smooth and creamy finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A thoroughly enjoyable IPA. Drinkable.

16 oz. can.
Canned 03/12/20.
Moderate pour yields a fleeting, 3/4 inch, off white head over a hazy body with no lacing. Nose of pineapple upside down cake. Taste mirrors nose pretty closely with a pineapple tart finish. Mouth feel is nice for a lactose IPA. Overall a good stab at a milkshake IPA and would recommend to all those who enjoy IPAs with lactose.
Cheers!
