August 2017 - Can shared at One Canada Square. Huge thanks! As 'Verdant / Dry & Bitter Pineapple Express', 6.1%. Hazy matte orange, nearly opaque, still, foamy off-white head leaves light lacing. Aroma is dusty, stones, some muted tropical fruit papaya, mango and pineapple. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is chalky and quite spicy up front, then mango and pineapple, little danky with a dusty finish. Good. (7-4-7-4-15=3.7) madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2017

Can. SImcoe, Magnum, Citra, Mosaic, Eldorado, Bravo, Denali and Galaxy hops. Very hazy gold beer, small white head. Nose of pine and pineapple. Light palate, fairly dry, decent fine carbonation. Light thin malts, sweetish. Pine and pineapple, light citrus and mild hop skunk and spice. Fruity tang. Light dry finish leaves a mild bitter linger. Nice if a little thin and dry.
Keg @ Vocation & Co, Hebden Bridge. Cloudy amber-orange with a small head. Has an acute bittered citrus nose that's slightly dirty. There's citrus orange and pineapple in its taste, with a slightly soda pop-like fizz. Has a citrus bitter finish. Garrold (5606) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2017
Can. Beer Central, Sheffield. Dirty, hazy gold. Scummy white head. Not a looker, especially. Nose has pale bread. Clean malts. Hops come across a bit grape like. Some pear and white peach. Some pineapple core. The yeast profile in this has a Belgian twang about it, not to any particular detriment. Taste is quite sweet and fruity, with a light, bitter twang. Soft mouthfeel. A little drying. More twang to finish. Decent, but odd. MrTipple (6457) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2017
Intense sweet citrus fruits, pineapple, mango, passion fruit. Hazy gold, medium, creamy, white head. Medium bitter. More sour, bitter citrus fruits, orange, lemon peel, unripe tropical fruits, mango, passion fruit, light straw, grass, lime juice, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Alright IPA, a touch too bitter in palate. Can shared at L42 tasting - thanks to The_Osprey!

Can at L42 - thanks to Danny. It pours hazy yellow - gold with a small white head. The aroma is soft, sweet, juicy, tangy, tropical, pineapple, fruit cake, green hops and grass. The taste is crisp, dry, bitter, green, grassy, bread, herbal, minerals, soapy citrus, pineapple and peach with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. I feel the pineapple character should/could be more expressive. It is still pretty tasty nonetheless. CraftBeerNick (2817) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2017

Nose is mellow citric, light spice, orange pith, melon, toasted bread.
Taste comprises pineapple chunks, tropical fruit medley, orange pith, toasted bread..
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close peppered with balanced hop bitterness and a light dank tickle.
