Rogue Ales & Spirits adds a new beer to its product lineup this fall. Pineapple Party Punch, an imperial hazy IPA brewed with citrusy hops, pineapple and toasted coconut, is a tropical escape in a beer.
“This year has been challenging to say the least,” says Dharma Tamm, Rogue President. “Vacations have been cancelled, weddings postponed, concerts silenced and life as we knew it has been paused. But we have been reminded of the joy in the simplicity of sipping on a beer in your backyard. Enter Pineapple Party Punch, a beer that’s ideal for sipping at home but will make you think you’re on a tropical escape. Crack one open, close your eyes and from the opening surge of pineapple and citrus to the smooth, sweet coconut finish, you’ll swear you’re kicked back with your toes in the sand.”
“Bursting with pineapple, coconut, and bright hop flavors, this imperial hazy IPA is reminiscent of our favorite tropical drink, the Piña Colada,” says Hagen Moore, VP of Marketing and Creative. “Summer may be ending, but this hazy, flavorful brew will help you keep the summer vibes going all year long. Pineapple Party Punch is just what we need to finish out 2020.”

GSN’s Thoughts: This is a powerhouse of an IPA. The sip was bitter and hoppy, but the second one leaned more of the pineapple flavor, toning things down a bit in a fruit forward direction. We tried to glean the toasted coconut, but if it was there at all, it seemed buried in the mix. We paired this brew with a Hawaiian pork chop for dinner and it worked beautifully. Overall, a special beer for special occasions. And hey, it’s 2020.
