3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the Shorts Anniversary. This one took me somewhat by surprise as I really enjoyed it. It has a nice tropical aroma. Mainly pineapple citrus and fruit skins. The flavor is very refreshing and quenching. A lot of pineapple flavors as most pineapple beers that ive had seem mild to me. A slight hop background that gives it a nice balance. Concluding with a nice tart dry finish. I wish they would bottle this one.

tap. Golden with small head. Lightly tart with some pineapple sweetness. Pilsner with very slight hop bite. If nothing else, this is very unique and interesting. Pleasant enough, I’d have it again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap: golden body, decent clarity with a bone-white head that shrivels down to a ring pretty quickly. Aroma is mild pineapple along with some citric, slightly dank hops. Light grassy, onion, & hop oil notes in the back-end. Taste is very light & crisp with another dose of mild pineapple & tropical fruit, though things switch more to the citric side during the latter half. Leafy & slightly dank finish with some dying citric fruits & grassy notes. Highly drinkable stuff, nice little pineapple touch. I really dig it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pale yellow pour with a white head. Hints of pineapple citrus make this an interesting combination of flavors and aroma. A good drinkable brew,

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I really didn’t get the fruit much out of this one. Since I know its pineapple I can almost pick up that sweetness but it mainly has a crisp bitterness. A light grain flavor and lingers on the bitter side a bit.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Sunset for their Shorts event prior to EBF. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Light pineapple, grain and crackers. Sweet, but not really cloying. Close though. Crackers, bitter and grainy, toasty finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fairly drinkable little beer, nice light pineapple in the nose and on the palate. Cool and drinkable. Wouldn’t be bad on a hot Florida day.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft sample. Poured clear golden color with medium frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium balanced aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium fruit and bitter flavor with a light to medium bitter finish of moderate duration. Not my style brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
tap at hopcat for shorts bday party, 12/10. clear orange with big white head. huge spiciness (similar to the shorts anniv ale, 2010 version) to this beer. some harsh bitterness and spicy florals dominate the pineapple aspect to this pils..more of a pineapple rind-like flavor in the finish..hugely carbonated..hot, but interesting!
