COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Dude, you need to brew a beer with pineapple and jalapeno!" The inspiration, of course, came while eating a Hawaiian Fire pizza with those toppings. 5 Stones Craft Brewing Company has brewed this American Golden Ale with massive amounts of fresh-cut pineapple, two-row crystal and dextrine malts, Amarillo hops, honey, and roasted jalapenos. Our hope is that you will enjoy this ale, share with friends, and have a "Aloha-Pina Moment" for yourself. To you, we say "Mahalo!" and thank you!

Bottle thanks to my Winter Secret Santa. Cloudy gold pour with a huge, rocky head that fades slowly to a bubbly film. Leaves soapy lacing too. Aroma is an interesting mix of grilled pineapple and mild jalapeno. Tastes like lightly grilled pineapple with a nice jalapeno kick. Hint of biscuity malt. Very little heat from the peppers which is nice. Not a huge fan of the high foamy carbonation though. Interesting unique beer.

sample from bottle at 2014 houston big brew fest. Golden with one finger head. Light body with tart pineapple and light spicing from the jalapeno. Very tasty.

Golden pour. Smell is pineapple, vegetal and jalapeno spice. Taste is very balanced jalapeno meat, light spice and dry malt. Light and nice carbonation. Very drinkable.

This beer surpassed all my expectations. Aroma is pineapple and a touch of roasted jalapeños, which from the ingredients and description leads you to expect. Flavor follows the nose. Amazing pineapple flavor in which the sweetness is cut by the roasted jalapeño follow by a little pepper heat warming. Amazing beer, recommend highly. This brewery is going places! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ehhh, this is ok. It sure as shit beats drinking a boring Belgian golden/blonde ale. However, I think a beer that says it’s brewed with such and such special stuff, in this case, pineapple and jalapeños should have an abundant flavor of pineapple and jalapeños. This one doesn’t. Sadly, it offers just a hint of each. This isn’t Founders’ Mango Magnifico, that’s for certain. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pineapple aroma and taste with the jalapeno lurking in the background. If this were actually a pizza I’d request extra jalapenos next time. It certainly doesn’t need to be crazy hot but the sweet pineapple would blend nicely with more heat.

Bottle thanks to Kevin. Pours a hazy yellow gold with small frothy white head. The aroma is pineapple and chile. Thin mouthfeel with light burn and pineapple flavor.

Pineapple and jalapeno? But it works. Can’t wait for summer to drink this on the beach. Gold pour and a nice white head. Aroma is sweet pineapple; you have to really try to find the pepper. Balanced flavor. Lots of pineapple up front and lots of jalapenos in the finish. I’ve only had a couple of beers where the chile works. This is one.

Deep gold, with a white head. Nose is pineapple, sweet, fruits, earth, and more pineapple. Nice palate, pineapple fruit cup, sweet, more pineapple, bitter finish.
