3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the source... Pours an apple vinegar like consistency, mostly transparent, and topped with. Within film of soapy white head... Wafts of pineapple in and out but predominantly citrus and pine throughout. Perhaps a little melon moreso than pineapple... Flavors are more bitter with a citrus focus perhaps a light. Lightly sweet with a grassy pithy finish which lasts awhile on the tongue. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation.

Sample at Odd Side on 3/29/13. Clear copper pour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of pineapple, malt and slight hop. Pineapple and malt flavor with a grassy hop finish. Kinda what I’d expect from a pineapple IPA, but it was pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I do have it down as "Derelicte" not "Derelicto", and at 6.4%. Golden amber. Distinctive pineapple nose and that comes through in the flavor, too, but there there is more grassiness and some bitterness changing the sense of it--less a "fruit beer", more an IPA, but not an esp. great one. I wouldn’t want a full pint of this. (on tap at brewery)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap: The aroma consists of pineapple, tropical fruits, grapefruit, and citrus. It’s a transparent amber with a small orange tinged off-white head that leaves a nice sheet of lacing on the sides of the glass. The flavor with citrus and tropical fruits. There’s a some light pineapple in the background. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit and a touch of lemon. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, the pineapple is stronger in the nose than the flavor. A very enjoyable and sessionable IPA.
