Aloha from Toronto! As the name suggests, this bold, hoppy West Coast pale ale is brewed Hawaiian style—with pineapple. It is naturally carbonated, unfiltered and dry-hopped to provide a delicate carbonation and complex flavour and bouquet. This perfectly "imbalanced" pale ale has a fresh citrusy character with hints of tropical fruit, zest and pine and a refreshingly dry finish.

Purchased at the LCBO as a single for the $2.00 catch all. Served at 5deg C in a draught glass.

A- Pretty good! Not much head from this unfiltered IPA but a decent film. Bit cloudy but not that much

S- Excellent! You can smell a hint of the pineapple.

T- This one will hit you with a bitter sweet pineapple flavor. Cascade hops and caramel malt are blended ok but the pineapple seems like an add on instead of an integral part of the recipe

M- Very good. Nice bitterness and dryness from the hops. Long finish

O- Ok not great. This is the reason I popped a 6 pack to get one. Won't buy it again

Food Pairing

This ok IPA will go very well with Pad Thai. The spiciness of the food and bitterness of the hops will match well.

Enjoy!
