3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
