A Note on This Beer
In case you’re like me and were unaware of this until today: pink pineapples are a thing.
According to Cosmopolitan Magazine, the pineapple-lovin’ folks at Dole and Del Monte grow this hot pink fruit by adding lycopene (the natural stuff that makes tomatoes red). Neat!
Now, I’m guessing the brewers at Evil Twin aren’t big Cosmo readers, because today’s tangy hopjuice is called WHAT EVEN IS PINK PINEAPPLE ANYWAY? But that’s okay, because they’ve totally mastered the fruit in its beer form.
And, yes, it’s pink!
A Pink Sour IPA, to be exact. Evil Twin stuffed it full of pineapple for luscious juice in every mouthful. Then, they gave it a hop-whispered twist of lemon citrus for a supple, mouth-puckering finish. It’s like an extra tropical pink lemonade, only even cooler because it comes with a 7% ABV!
Even if you’re like, “I dunno, Tavour, I’ve never tried pink pineapple before,” you’ll still want to stock up on extra so you can say you were among the first people to taste this new beer trend.
In fact, it’s so new that the only thing my Google searches turn up that’s even remotely close is a “Pink Pineapple Malt Beverage” from a brand that rhymes with “Teagrams.”
Hey, one of the last Evil Twin beers we snagged for Tavour members had Mountain Dew in it — these guys are always ahead of the curve!
