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

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, - NOV 19, 2012
Bouteille 355ml. De couleur dorée-cuivrée et voilée. Nez de houblon herbeux et légèrement résineux, moyen de fruits (agrumes, léger de fruits tropicaux) et léger de caramel sucré. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse et aux petites notes résineuses. Goût fruité (agrumes, moyen de fruits tropicaux, surtout d’ananas) accompagné d’une légère amertume de houblon herbeux aux faibles notes florales (une amertume présente en arrière-goût toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel sucré avec des traces de pain frais et de biscuits puis à mesure que la finale approche, l’amertume de houblon se fait plus tranchante, moyennement résineuse et légèrement asséchante. Post-goût long et un peu sec, moyennement amer de houblon résineux et herbeux avec un goût fruité (zeste d’agrumes).

Spearhead Hawaiian Bright yellow. Medium White head. Aroma: nice mango hops, grass, lemon, a little pepper. Flavour: bitter, lemon rind, pepper, caramel, I think I detect some alcohol. Very pleasant! A great sign of things to come.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Slightly hazy, orange-amber with a 3-finger off-white head that leaves random blotches of lacing. Aroma of citrus, caramel, pineapple and a touch of floral hops. Taste of citrus, pineapple, caramel, tropical fruit, pine resin and a touch of floral hops. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

worldbeertaste (1669) - AUSTRIA - OCT 7, 2014
Orange with a thin white lacy head. Smells of tropical fruit, juicy melon, honey, and caramel. Tastes more citrus with pineapple and a sharp peppery finish with a lingering sweetness. A bit our sourness in the finish is a bit off. I want to drink it. Delicious

AlainG (1286) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2014
Elle est plutôt ambrée et une mousse franche la recouvre en s’y installant confortablement. Un nez très fruité au travers une couche maltée et houblonnée. Ça sent le jus. Le goût du fruit n’est pas exagéré. On a même une pale ale assez digne. Une amertume soignée et bien sentie nous passe sur la langue, tandis que le malt donne une certaine corpulence en bouche. Agréablement surpris. (1176-070814)

KansaiBeerLvrs (2162) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 18, 2014
On tap at the Ottawa Beerfest. Hawaiian Style Pale Ale served in my 5$ Spearhead tasting snifter. Their flagship beer pours an opaque copper-orange. The nose is a burst of  piney orange citrus hops. Not sure what they mean by Hawaiian but this is quite good. It has a crisp mouthfeel of palate cleansing bitterness, It’s  a clean bitter hoppy pale ale with a solid malt backbone.

guil0000 (268) - New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 16, 2014
Pours avhazy golden red colour with a small long lasting white head. Nose of citrus hop. Mainly grapefruit. Not overly hoppy finish it has the nose of a ipa but no lingering hop. Sweet medium mouthfeel. Very good!

lesifflebiere (1286) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2014
Dorée foncé, avec une mousse rare, et une apparence trouble liée à une texture mi-mince. Nez dominant de houblons tropicaux, et d’ananas tout aussi tropicaux. La bouche est digne d’une IPA, tellement l’amertume y est puissante, et le fruité tropical des plantes vertes se confond avec l’ananas rajouté. Pour ceux qui y chercheront les fruits, la quête est de longue durée tellement ils sont discrets. Par contre, la bière elle-même est exquise.

HippyHop (148) - CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
Pours a rich gold with clean white head, fizzy and slightly creamy. This beer has a lot going on. Nose is tropical fruit, citrus, and most notably and unsurprisingly, pineapple. Oddly, though, pineapple is not a predominant taste. Fairly high carbonation, the first sip is sweet citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit, and a subtle hint of pineapple. Finish is very dry with sweet citrus, rind, tropical fruit and a nice piney bitterness. The hop profile is really, really nice, but it lacked a bit of malt character/backbone, for my liking. Great beer for hopheads, and extremely sessionable, but for me it was just shy of exceptional. Great summer beer, and it comes in a really neat bottle, sort of reminiscent of old-school soda pop.

Freaky_tiki (577) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
Pours deep orange with a thin white cap. Ok, let’s face it: this isn’t my first swing at this brew. I’ve probably had it more often than Rob Ford fumbles a media scrum. Pours is brisk, hoppy & a little like a juicy soda pop. I like drifting into one or three of these at the end of a session, but it does serve pretty well for my 3 part investigation/study (aka excuse to drink more than I should on a Tuesday night). Pretty good in this summer heat but maybe a little too sugary. Bonus mark for having a tiki on the label.
