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

Draught at C’est What, Toronto
Amber color, clean, with creamy head. Mild aroma, some hop. Smooth mouthfeel, quite good malt and toffee flavor, with nice citrusy hopping, and long final.
Not impressive, but pleasant.

Cloudy dirty straw. Thick head. Fruity hop aroma does have a pineapple accent and a hint of pale malt. Quite bitter and lightly fruity, with barely any malt. Austere, nice and dry, and I like the way the pineapple juice comes through the finish.

A golden amber ale with a thick creamy lacing off white head. In aroma, a nice fruity biscuitty malt with nice floral hops, resinous and fragrant. In mouth, a smooth sweet malt with tropical fruits, floral hops, lichee pulp, very nice. On tap at C’est What, Oct. 29 2011

Sammy (9992) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2011 Beer Launch at Volo. Pours apricot coloured body with a small white head. Modest fruit hoppy aromas. Average mouthfeel, however fizzy carbonation. Served on the too cold side, 4 degrees Celcius. Better colder, as that yields a hoppy beer with a shot of pineapple in the finish. As it warmed I found it drier than I would like, and the pineapple only adding to the significant acidiity I experienced. Seemed a bit boozier than the 6.5% listed,very drinkable. Had this again mid-November at Cloak & Dagger an I found it too pineapple juicy and malty. More like a beer cocktail and not edgy and bitter.

2011-07-16. Crisp orange body with a lovely foamy off-white head. The flavour has a crisp bitterness throughout, pleasant fruitiness is inscrutable at first, citrus, tropical fruits and modest pineapple character that is not entirely obvious that it is pineapple at first, because of the bitterness of the hops. The fruity character is present throughout but allows the hops to take precedence in varying levels. Sweet aroma, fruity pineapple , mild green hops, leafy plant like aroma I know but can’t place, modest citrus. Smooth average plus bodied palate suits the beer. Pretty solid. The pineapple presented less like fresh pineapple than I had hoped, and more like pineapple juice (which is what was used) but it worked fairly well with the bitterness of the hops overall. I am curious to see if this hold up over future batches. Enjoyable. On tap, Spearhead launch party at Volo, Toronto

Deep amber pour with a tight white head. The aroma is quite tropical and hoppy. There is a lot of soft bitterness and a bit of fairly assertive bitterness. Pineapple and some bright pine citrus. The juice doesn’t really play a part in the flavour or aroma in tje way I thought it would. It’s got a bit of spice and some light white pepper as well. Fruity and citrusy and quite a lovely drink.

Draft - Sweet and tropical fruit. Copper with a thin white head. Up front bitterness and pineapple with and a long bitter finish. Not sure what they were aiming for but I like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Silky tropical fruit dominate this smooth New World Pale Ale, ending up in earthy hop resins and their just bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the misty amber.
-Malts offer but light caramel, without much definition.
-Drinkability is quite high.
-This is well-made, but it lacks depth and subtleties.

On tap at The Black Tomato.

On tap @ Origin. Bright orange, lacy delicate head. Aroma is very fresh and fragrant, lots of tropical fruit, with fresh pineapple readily apparent. Juicy hop-driven palate, so fresh and flavourful! Surprisingly light, but not in any way thin. Fresh pineapple features beautifully. Perfectly balanced bitterness. I was expecting very little and I was quite blown away! Superb.
