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

Surprisingly dark and well carbonated IPA large, thick foam. Beautifully rounded flavor free of any artificial tastes. Great flavoured brew worthy of a case or two of indulgence.

ILduce (205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle LCBO: Hazy orange with lasting white head. Smells like tropical fruits and an abundance of hops. Taste is similar with some earthiness and cooked pineapple. Beautifully bitter. Great Ontario find.

HeistAlmighty (1126) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 11, 2013
355ml bottle. Hazy amber apricot colour, big fluffy white head. Coool looking bottle. Aroma is grapefruit hops, tropical fruits and a hint of the pineapple. Taste is tropical hops, caramel malt, a bit of dirt on the finish. Pineapple is more subtle than I expected but is present. Overall, didn’t care for the dirty aftertaste, but otherwise well balanced.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A light nose of sweet fruity hops. A very nice mellow flavor of tropical fruit, caramel, dry at times, light pine and bitterness. Very good.

Metalchopz (2263) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2012
Found this one in the singles, at the LCBO (but usually comes in a 6-pack). Pours a clean golden-amber with a big frothy and creamy off-white head. Very long lasting and loads of soapy lacing. Nice fresh cascade hop nose at first pour. The last pour delivers a bit of the fruit juice and the beer becomes very slightly hazy. Weird that it is written "Unfiltered beer. Pour gently to leave sediment at the bottom". I really don’t see much, and without the bottom, I would of never had the pineapple scent. Even the taste does not give out much of the fruit. Good hop bitterness, mild dryness, with notes of citrus zest. If I had not read the description, I would of never know that pineapple juice was used in here. It is a nice West Coast Pale Ale though.

No Hawaiian flavour at all, just marketing. As an IPA it’s ok, but not quite a PA either. Kind of old tasting or just flavours fighting each other. Nothing special, and kind of harsh instead of refreshing.

Boutip (4701) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle: Poured a bright amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of floral and citrus hops with light pineapple notes. Taste is also dominated by loads of citrus and hoppy notes with medium bitter aftertaste. Pineapple juice notes is quite subtle but bring a nice touch. Body is quite full with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed and interesting approach to say the least.
