Description 

How do you cram as much hop & malt flavor and aroma as possible into a beer but make it crushable too? That’s the challenge we answered with PINNER Throwback IPA. At 4.9% ABV and 35 IBUs, this drinkable IPA uses several varieties of hops to target the ever-evolving flavor. With tropical fruits, citrus juices, pineapple and spice berry up front in the aroma and flavor, the biscuit & toasted bread at the back balance out all the hops and make a great finish to go on to your next can of PINNER. It’s the perfect beer for a little sip, sip, give.

Pinner Throwback IPA has a pleasant blend of spicy, citrus and floral hop aromas and flavors surrounded by plenty of pale and toasty malts, yet has plenty of bittering hops to avoid being overly sweet. Aroma and flavor both have low levels of fermentation esters in the background that give this beer plenty of complexity. There is a low, drying astringency that lingers in the finish that is slightly distracting from what is, overall, quite a complex and tasty Session IPA.

I love Oskar Blues , but the only thing good about this beer was it didn't cost me anything. It is malty, weak and very little hop aroma or flavor. Macro fans , this one is for you. Fist City is a better choice
