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.

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.

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.

Pours orange with a white head. Aroma of citrus hops. Slightly sweeter IPA maybe because of the pineapple.

On tap. Bright orange color, no cloudiness, a little head. Not as big of an aroma as expected. A little pineapple and citrus. Taste some pineapple but not as much as I expected given the name. Still, is was pretty refreshing and not too bitter. Ok overall.

On tap at HopCat, Grand Rapids, MI. Not a fan of this one. Deep amber and clear, that’s nice. Sweet pineapple aroma, that’s nice. Then the taste really lets you down. Seems like the pineapple is replacing the hops in this one, rather than complimenting them. Tastes weak and watery, and has a weird aftertaste my wife and I just couldn’t put our fingers on (maybe it was stale hops?). No bitterness at all. A disappointment.

Draft at HopCat, Grand Rapids. Slightly hazy medium orange-brown body, thin creamy off-white head. Light nose with pineapple and citrus. Light, hoppy body, mostly citrusy, bitter hops with modest pineapple. Lingering bitter finish with a long citrus rind aftertaste. The pineapple was a nice touch to a basic IPA.

On tap at the Clarkston Union...a nice spin on the usual citrus of an IPA. I would say that this was on the sweeter and less hoppy side for an IPA, but I enjoyed it and will seek out more.

hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2011
On tap at The Shark Club. Poured a hazy golden color with a small sized head. More pineapple in the aromas than the tastes, but not much there. Citrus and rinds. Sweeter than bitter.
