The aroma is fruity and sweet, a touch of pineapple and tropical and hoppy. A medium bodied India Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, with a touch of pineapple. The hops are citrus and tropical. Decent carbonation. Nice balance. The mild pineapple flavor adds to the citrusy/grapefruity hoppiness. Decent bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is mostly bitter.

Nuffield (4092) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2012
I do have it down as "Derelicte" not "Derelicto", and at 6.4%. Golden amber. Distinctive pineapple nose and that comes through in the flavor, too, but there there is more grassiness and some bitterness changing the sense of it--less a "fruit beer", more an IPA, but not an esp. great one. I wouldnt want a full pint of this. (on tap at brewery)

Pailhead (6495) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2012
On tap: The aroma consists of pineapple, tropical fruits, grapefruit, and citrus. Its a transparent amber with a small orange tinged off-white head that leaves a nice sheet of lacing on the sides of the glass. The flavor with citrus and tropical fruits. Theres a some light pineapple in the background. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit and a touch of lemon. Its light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, the pineapple is stronger in the nose than the flavor. A very enjoyable and sessionable IPA.

Unclerudy (12) - white lake, Michigan, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Large white head that quickly dissipated. Grainy citrus aroma. Hazy amber color. Nice malt flavor, good bitterness. Pineapple is faint. Good beer to sink on a hot day.

radagast83 (7515) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Sampled at SAVOR. Poured a slightly straw color with a slight foamy white head. Aroma was mild pineapple, tropical fruit citrus. Flavor was mild pineapple, tropical fruit citrus. Okay, but not as "pineapple" as I was hoping for, though I suppose the beer could have been a bit too tart (not sour tart, but the kind of tart that pineapple can be) if it was a bit more like pineapple.

NachlamSie (3328) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Pint at the brewery. Pours an almost copper color with good lacing. As it turns out pineapple makes perfect sense in an IPA. The aroma is a clean, tropical hoppiness with a little pine too. The pineapple actually becomes noticed after a few sips as it adds a juiciness and authentic flavor of the real fruit. The finish is nicely bitter and citrusy. Palate is smooth. This is a great brew on a 90 degree day.
