4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
AZ strong beer festival (I’m finally going back to my notes). Hops, hops, and more hops. Ton of citrus/grapefruit (pink grapefruit of course) that fades away to a blend of bitter and sweet.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at PP Carlsbad. I wasn’t expecting this to be good, so I was pleasantly surprized when it was. Pink/yellow color. Light sourness from the pomegranite seeds. A little bit of fruitiness. Leans sweet, but only lightly. Decent drinkability.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
AZ Strong Beer Fest. Labeled as Pink IPA- World?s Best IPA. Brewed for breast cancer awareness/ research- I?m told. Certainly pink in color, not sure from what. Classic west-coast aromas & flavors of bitter citrus, grapefruit, some pine, catty. Very good IIPA! Still not sure what makes it pink, hmmm.

Nicely carbonated making it quite refreshing. The color was interesting. Light in color with a frothy head. Nicely sour with a wheat beer feel along with the typical Belgian spices. Representing three of my favorite things, beer and boobies.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the AZ Strong Beer Fest. Vibrant neon pink in color with a foamy ivory cap. Nose is fruity and citrusy, with some yeast present. Flavor is quite hoppy, with lots of grapefruit pith and lemongrass along with a light fruit juice quality. A bit thin. More gimmicky than anything. Meh.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On-tap at PP C’Bad. Feel free to change the style. Pours light pink/orange with a thin white head and good lace. Smells of light grainy malts with just a hint of fruit. Tastes of cereal malts with some Belgian yeast and a little bit of tart fruit, supposedly pomegranate. Lots of cereal flavors. Light body, vibrant carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at PP Carlsbad. I think this should be a fruit beer. Clear pink/orange pour white, pink tinge head. Light and easy drinking. Light malt, cereal, pomegranate, some belgian yeast/fruity notes, and honey. Light fizzy mouthfeel. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The beer is certainly pink. It’s also quite pale and even a little reminiscent of Arbor Mist/wine cooler in appearance.
S: The nose is quite light, fruity (red grapes, raspberries, and maybe pomegranate), with an almost cidery note to it.
T: The flavor is like cider or very bland sparkling wine, to be honest. The same almost discernible fruit notes are present on the palate, and there is a slight sweetness to the beer.
M: The body is quite light and very effervescent.
D: I’m still a bit unsure about this one. I enjoyed it, especially considering it was a warm day out, but at the same time, I felt like I was just drinking a sparkling fruit drink.
