3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at stone... Pours a medium transparent crisp raspberr. Hue and topped with a frothy soapy white head... Aroma is biscuity malt and caramel malt that intertwines with a piney citrus forward hop bent. Not totally complexin any way but a solid almost dipa territory... Flavors are a touch better than the aroma. A lot of crystal and caramel malt it seems, with a sense of booziness throughout to go alongside a citrusy hop profile. Medium to full bodied with a crisp lively level of carbonation. Not bad but I’ve had better port ipas on this trip.

Pours pink like a light kriek with a thin tan head. Aroma is clean, medium bitterness hops with pine and light citrus. Taste is clean, dry hops, pine, and a tight malt profile with a touch of sweetness on the end. Very good and extremely quaffable IPA.

On draft at Sublime Ale House. Light pink/amber color. Almost looks neon in color. As expect, its a total citrus hop bomb, but incredibly easy to drink. Surprised that this was 8.2%. You would never know. Just another awesome beer from PP.

Draught at brewbies. Pink with a big head. Lots of sweet grapefruit and other citrus going on in the aroma. Just enough sweetness to accentuate the hop aromas, but not too much malt flavor. Big hoppy finish but modest bitterness overall. I like how this shows the absurdity of the black IPA trend and kicks ass at the same time.

Sampled @ AZ Strong Beer Fest. Got to give this one props on appearance...vibrant pink body with a cotton candy head. Aroma is extremely bright and floral with sharp citrus pith, orange peel, and mouth-puckering grapefruit finding their way to the tongue. Hop presence is definitely stated loudly but there is a mild caramel sweetness toward the end of the sip. Great cause...great beer!
