Goin' Coastal IPA
I'm checking out Sweetwater's newest Catch & Release Seasonal, Goin' Coastal IPA. This is an IPA infused with pineapple. A little story sets your expectations and puts you in the mood, ending with a suggestion to "Cash in a sick day and grab another!" 6.1% alcohol.
Juicy pineapple and tangerine sweet aroma with a bit of jammy orange in the background. Juicy and full of pineapple sweet flavor as well. Initial sweetness is balanced by some citrus and light pine. A little spicy as well. Good sweet and bitter see-saw with a lingering spicy bitterness in the finish. Not bad!
