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

355 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Slightly hazy deep golden with a fair white head. Aroma: Rich, strong hops with nice pine/resin, some citrus, maybe light tropical notes, light and pleasant biscuity malt notes, nothing much in the way of pineapple juice... Palate: Medium body, fairly spunky effervescence. Flav.: More nice hops, largely pine/resin with some nice fruitiness and a bit more malt support than the nose; dry with good bitterness and a fairly long, resinous, lightly fruity finish.

I killed several before actually rating this. Very nice.

Glass, 4-ounce, draught, during the Mondial de la bière, savoured on June 13 2014; eye: caramel with an orangey hue, lightly hazy, tiny ring of tan head, no lacing; nose: sour, infected; mouth: sour, infected; overall: why serve infected beer? FRANÇAIS Verre, 4 onces, en fût, lors du Mondial de la bière, savourée le 13 juin 2014; œil : caramel avec une teinte orangée, légèrement voilée, petit anneau de mousse fauve, pas de dentelle; nez : aigre, infection; bouche : aigre, infection; en résumé : à quoi ça sert de servir une bière infectée?

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 (2086) - 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 (266) - 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 (1274) - 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 (136) - 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 (560) - 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.

355ml bottle. Cloudy orange with a frothy white head with some sediments. Flavors are juicy pineapple, pine resin, bread, lemon, alcohol and toasted malts. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, oily texture.

UXO (221) - CANADA - MAY 4, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy orange gold with one finger of white head diminishing gradually to a medium-dense cap and light lacing. Nose is bright citrus hoppy, with some caramel malt and just a hint of pineapple. Taste is decently balanced grapefruit hops and malt, with only a faint aftertaste of pineapple and tropical fruit. Mouth feel tends to the light side of medium, with good carbonation and a lingering pleasantly bitter finish. Not a lot of pineapple presence here, but I’m on the fence as to whether that’s necessarily a bad thing - added flavours can be a double-edged sword. Strictly as an APA/IPA, this is pleasant and quite drinkable, so I think I have to leave the pineapple out of the equation.

RhetoricalAns (267) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
Cloudy yellow pour. Big pillowy white head that sticks around. Aroma is hoppy, pineapple, lime, lemon, grapefruit. A sweet sweet watery body up front with a strong hop finish. Thin body with high carbonation.
