PINK-I*: Fruit-beer haters tried to talk us out of this one, but we wanted a “training wheels” IPA to bring some of the wheat fans along to the joys of hoppiness. We started with an IPA recipe using the Falconer’s Flight from Hop Union. Just as we began crashing the fermentation, 84lbs of raspberry puree from Oregon Fruit was added. After substantial conditioning/clearing time, we released this just in time for the Pink Colorado unveiling party. The aroma is all raspberry, and so is the initial hit on your palette. The finish of the beer, and the ABV (6.5%+), however, is all IPA.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a orange-copper with a one inch beige head that lasts. Taste is of tropical fruit, citrus hops, malt, pine, resin and raspberries. Raspberry, hop and citrus aroma. Has a decent, wet body with a tart finish. Quite enjoyable.

BeerandBlues2 (12101) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 29, 2016
Draught at the brewery. Pours clear rubied orange with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is raspberry, moderate dank and sweaty hops, cracker malt and citrus hops. Flavor is moderate citrus, herbal, and dank hops and bitterness, tart raspberries, cracker malt and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Pours beer coloured rose, good head. Aroma of hoppy citrus grapefruit raspberry. Taste is much the same, not bad for a fruity beer.

Bomber. Citrus hop aroma with raspberry sweetness as well as a little bit of pine. Pours copper colored with a slight pinkish hue and a white head with good retention and lacing. Starts with citrus hop flavors and not much else. Finishes smooth with a bit of dryness with the raspberry flavors coming though before giving way to a slight piney hop bitterness. Pretty good, definitely feels like a training wheel IPA but that's not a bad thing.

Tide (2972) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Draught at COBF. Hazy copper color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, caramel, raspberry, hops and a bit of pine. Bitter finish with citrus, raspberry and hops. Good IPA, although one is surely enough for one day.

Ratman197 (13284) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2014
On tap at Colorado Plus poured a hazy reddish amber with a small lingering off white head. Aromas of raspberry, bread and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of raspberry, bread and light citrus with a crisp dry bitter lingering raspberry finish.

Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Poured from tap to glass at the brewery. Hazy pinkish straw hue with white head. Aroma is raspberry, straw, medicinal, pine, cardboard. Mouthfeel is decent with medium body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry raspberry up front with harsh astringent following and oxidized finish. Overall this is all over the place and doesn’t work. Suffers from oxidation and a medicinal off flavor.

fajry (1534) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 19, 2014
Plechovka. Tmava zlata farba. Pena biela, ale velmi rychlo opadla. Vo voni citit ovocie, najma maliny a cerveny grapefruit. Chut opal sladka, malinova s vyroznou horkou dochutou. Prekvapujuce pivo!

Gurthnar (5003) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 17, 2014
Can. Aroma is fruity, with hops playing a role, but feels right. Complex, hard to pick apart. Hazy orangeish golden colour. Taste is very well balanced, with raspberry playing out nicely with the hops. Very good.

Dohny (358) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 17, 2014
Poured from can courtesy of Mattew. Hazy yellow color with small white head. Citrusy aroma of hops. Raspberry in flavor are barely evident due to strong hop citrusy, grapefruit zest taste. Bitterness dominates in taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
