mcberko (21671) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2018
On tap at Black Door, pours a cloudy bright yellow with a small white head. Aroma is loaded with pineapple upfront, followed by a blast of citrus hops. Flavour likewise nicely combines the pineapple and citrusy hops, with a very bright fruitiness and freshness to the hops. Cohesive and vibrant. Very good.

[email protected] Opaque golden color, white head. Tropical fruit aroma. Smooth, fruity flavor with aromatic hops. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Nice, though not as good as the mango version.

Towey1989 (3874) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2018
Bottle at Beerdock Leek. Pours a hazy golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of pineapple, some bubblegum, mango, slight grapefruit and subtle herbal hops. Taste of pineapple, bubblegum, some mango, slight grapefruit, a hint for bready malts and subtle herbal hops. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A dryish, tropical fruit bitterness in the finish. A lot sweeter than the original and mango, however it’s not artificial. Lots of pineapple and bubblegum with a tasty, fruity finish. Juicy!

Gangstergafje (1466) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2018
17-05-2018; bottle; at home (bought at Saveur Bière, as part of their May 2018 discovery box). The looks of the beer are nice. It looks like a very alright IPA. The beer is nice and pale already. The color is a nice tropical yellow. It is quite bright. It doesn't have that orange an IPA can have. It has a lovely opaque cloudiness. On top of the beer a nice soft layer of white foam is formed. Foam retention is average. A thin soft drape is left after some time. The smell of the beer is very nice. It is a very tropical smell. I smell some nice sweet malts. They give a nice robust base. Quite familiar smell. On top of this, there are some lovely fruity notes. The pineapple is not really distinct, but it gives a lovely tropical aroma. Sweet, nice, and different from a ordinary IPA. It does take it to a next level. The hop aromas are also lovely. Very tropical, filled with lyme and lemon zest, pineapple, a hint of passion fruit and some stone fruits. Lovely. It is one of the more tropical beers. The taste of the beer is also very very good. There is a nice sweetness from both the malts and the pineapple. This goes nice with the bitters from the hops and the tropical overall fruitiness. The beer is lovely and fruity, bit it also has that robust bitterness of an IPA. Some fruity IPA's tend to be to fruity and tropical (which still is nice), but this one kept it's original IPA character. The palate is lovely. Medium body, smooth texture and medium carbonation. The pineapple gives the beer a lovely tingly sensation. The same tingle as when eating a pineapple. The finish has some nice fruity notes, and a lovely sweetness. All in all, a lovely beer. This really is a good one.

Pours very hazy and pale yellow colour, topped with small white head, creamy and lasting. Very lovely and very sweet pineapple nose, a bit of bubblegum presence. Moderately sweet fruity start with just a gentle bitterness. Slight warm feeling in the end. Medium aftertaste. Medium body. Very juicy fruity stuff. I love it.
