Commercial Description: "Take a sip and experience a liquid vacation. This tropical, fruit soaked beer was born from the daydreams of basking in the sun on porches, patios, and beaches. Each sip transports you to the sweetness of summer, with refreshing hints of pineapple and the familiar taste of New England's IPA, GLORIOUS. Sit back and relax because you have arrived at a liquid vacation."

Where distributed: Lord Hobo usually just distributes their beers in Massachusetts and/or the surrounding New England area. Click here for more info!

Appearance (5%): Pours hazy light golden-orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered, lots of sediment at the bottom of the can. Very frothy white head; some lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Mostly tropical citrus, with additional pineapple injected into the experience. Also some stone fruit (i.e. peach) with complementing oaty malts. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Pineapple-forward from the start; continues all the way through. Citrus bitterness is there but controlled quite well. Refreshing. Pineapple aftertaste. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-full bodied; some carbonation. Juicy with some dry tongue. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An outstanding IPA. Usually when I get pineapple IPAs, I'm largely let down due to a lack of pineapple or just a somewhat noticeable taste. This one, on the other hand, comes at you full force with pineapple Delicious, refreshing, and a reasonable price. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.475/5
