COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Introducing the Hawaiian Style Pale Ale™ Aloha from Hawaii! As the name suggests, this bold, hoppy West Coast pale ale is brewed Hawaiian style—with pineapple. We stopped at nothing to create this perfectly "imbalanced" and supremely delicious pale ale. The Hawaiian Style Pale Ale is naturally carbonated, unfiltered and dry-hopped to provide a delicate carbonation and complex flavour and bouquet. Hints of caramel, honey and biscuit give way to notes of fresh citrus, zest and pine and a refreshingly tropical finish. Serving Suggestion The Hawaiian Style Pale Ale should be served cool (5-10°C) from a tulip style glass. Food Pairings Hawaiian Style Pale Ale’s citrusy, fresh character makes it a versatile beer for food pairings. Enjoy a glass with spicy Indian and South-East Asian dishes. Pair with hearty pub fare and allow its zesty hoppiness to refresh your palate. Indulge in rich, creamy cheeses, some decadent chocolate or a thick slice of cheesecake to bring out the beer’s caramel and tropical sweetness. On its own it is dry, refreshing and perfectly quenching. Ingredients •Malts: Pale Malt, Caramel 10, Caramel 45, Light Munich, Caramel Malt-Pils •Hops: Cascade, Centennial, Northern Brewer •Yeast: California Ale •Additional: pineapple juice •Water: pure water

On tap at Pub Italia during the final get-together as a clan of five residents. Loads on pineapple, like canned pineapple rings. Upside down cake with moderate juicy hops finish. Really nice!

Bottle shared by Tom10101, thanks! Light IPA. Not much hops, but some tropical fruits and pine. Carbonation is low and alate is thin. Still it remains fairly enjoyable.

Bottle (355 ml). Extra from TheJester, thanks Andy! Hazy yellow with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy with tropical fruits, malt and light pine notes. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with tropical fruits, light malt and light resinous notes. Light body. Low carbonation. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Decent IPA. Lack of carbonation, but still quite enjoyable and refreshing. Fruity.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 355 mL bottle from the LCBO. Pours a nice orange colour with only a little bit of lacing. Pleasant aromas with a taste the confirms the presence of citrus. Taste is hoppy and bitter, as a Pale Ale should be but not overpowering, sour, or boozy.

HipHopOpotamus (229) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2013
UPDATED: APR 27, 2014 Purchased 6 pack at LCBO for $13.50 for this 6% Hawaiian pale ale. Full of taste and bitterness. First time I purchased this beer I didn’t notice the juice taste much at all. But tasting this beer again months later, I don’t know if the brewery added more juice to it or I just noticed it more now, but I didn’t like it as much 2nd time round I tasted less bitterness and more pineapple juice.. Still decent beer, but not a favourite.

355ml bottle. There might be a decent IPA represented here but someone accidentally poured a lunchable Hi-C or a Five Alive into it. I actually didn’t mind this at first, but the pineapple juice became cloying and unbearable by my third drink.
