Draught at C’est What, TorontoOakes (18517) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2012
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. Ferris (16274) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2013
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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks troubles. Hazy golden. Aroma of slightly stale citric hops. Flavor has a bit of sweetish malt, and bitter citric hops, a bit stale. Medium-bodied.

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 bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2013
(355ml bottle, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a clear golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of florals, pineapple, citrus, and biscuit. Flavor of citrus, pineapple, earth, lychee, and caramel. Sammy (12590) - 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. jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2011
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 DuffMan (10602) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 27, 2012
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.
