On tap at slap shotz in DTW. Dark gold/copper with thin white head. Aroma is a citrus bomb. Flavor is bitter citrus. Okay, but too much bitterness and too little complexity IMO.

__Rb81 (642) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2016
Bottle at home (bottled 05/02/16). Pours light hazy amber with a small white head, towards the end hazy with yeast residu. Sweet aroma of pineapple, malts, fruity hops, light yeast. Taste is sweet, moderate bitter, pineapple, bitter fruity/grassy hops, harsh bitter aftertaste. Not bad.

Thechasm442 (759) - Chicago heights, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Bottle to glass. Description says 6.5 but my bottle says 7.5. Very cloudy/murky dark Amber with not a lot of head. Leaves decent white lacing. Aroma is pineapple, citrus, mildew, mustiness, and sweet tropical fruit. Taste is full of pineapple, mango, papaya and citrus. Not much else going on save for a mild caramel flavor. Average thickness and juicy.

This sucker blows your mind away with pineapple. Almost too much. The aroma singed the nostrils. The taste makes you pucker. Wow. Draft. Orange and darker color at Jerrys. I dunno

Tap: On tap as "Derelicte: Pineapple IPA" before bottling. Golden-yellow body, like a grilled pineapple with a quickly fleeting off-white foam. Small bits of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is a nice mash-up of leafy hops, pine, bitter pineapple, & moderate citrus rind. Perhaps just a light touch of crackery malt. Flavor is the same way; nice zesty hops left & right. Pine, moderate resin, citrus rind, grapefruit, pineapple, & a bit of orange zest. Sweetness of the pineapple cuts the bitterness of the hops just a bit for a relatively smooth finish. Really enjoyed this the first time I had it. Out of the bottle, the pineapple presence was much lighter, & it came off just like any other IPA. Rating based off of the first time I had it.

sudomorph (1080) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, deep caramel with a thin, white head that sticks to the glass. Aroma has juicy notes of tropical fruits, a bit of resin, and pine. Taste is balanced. Resin, pineapple, pine, citrus, bread/caramel, and a drawn out, resin/pineapple aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Mild resiny texture with with a bit of a dry finish. Overall a taste IPA with a splash of pineapple that just adds to the flavour.

Bill Becker (793) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - AUG 21, 2014
This time, a bottle from my Buddy...Trent! It’s a hazy honey coloured brew that sits under a +1 finger of billowy foam. In the smell, I get biscuit malt mixed with a citrusy grassy hop aroma. The taste brings me biscuit malt and a citrus turning to, in the finish, a sort of quinine bitterness. Very sharp bitterness. I can’t say I get any pineapple. Medium body and carbonation. This is an unusual IPA and one that I like.

crossovert (11198) - Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Draft. Good pineapple flavor in this one, expecting a bit more of the hops it comes off as more of a fruit beer than an ipa.

jcr (2544) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle. Deep golden/orange body with a frothy, off-white head. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, citrus, toasted grain, tropical fruits. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, slick, pineapple juice texture, soft carbonation. Drinkable for a novelty beer. Pineapple sweetness and bitter hops work find together, the pineapple accentuating the citrus character of the hops.

jbrana (640) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Piney and slight citrus hops with some slight bubblegum flavor and peppery finish. Not really tasting much pineapple, but not a bad beer.

Sammy (11076) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2014
Recent bottle from Champane Cellars. More ipa than grapefruit, which is tasted only in the finish. Cloudy orange with lots of lace and head. Drinkable and bitter, not the best base IPA.
