3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Johnny Farina, Ottawa, ON
Aroma: A mix of citrus, cheese, hints of banana and vanilla. A very complex mix of aromas that did not hint at Pinapple for me.
Appearance: A nice clear copper coloured. Average fizz and a nice white head that lasts.
Taste: Bitter... real bitter like a nice ESB with hints of sweet, especially in the after taste.
Palate: As complex as it’s aroma... feels liek afull body, with a slick texture, average carbonation, a long bitter finish ending on sweet. You can taste the sweet fruity foundation hidden behind the ESB. Did not feel like a Pale Ale to me at all.
Overall; Love it, it was much better than anticipated. Looking forward to try again. Hat’s off guys... you can be proud of your elixir!

341 mL bottle. This one is nice because the pinapple tastes real, and the pineapple is not up front. It is part of the overall picture. This one actually has a nice biscuity malt backbone to go with the hops and pineapple.

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.
