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

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange, mousse présrnte teintée de jaune. Trouble mais pas opaque. Fleur citron ananas, houblons arômatiques typique de l’ouest. Amertume tranchante en bouche, corps rafraichissant mais plein; un peu plus de corps que les ipa habituelles ce qui lui donne une texture fort agréable. Sucre de fruit acides, mousse onctueuse.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a light slightly hazy amber with a small white head. Nose is pine, grass and citrus with definite pineapple notes. Sweet malt backbone leads to a nice bitter blend of pine and citrus. Far from being distracting, the pineapple blends seamlessly with the usual Pale Ale character to make a really interesting beer. Body is a bit light but the slick mouth and good carbonation leading to a dry bitter finish are excellent.

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