On-tap during Sessions 2013 festival.

Beer is a cloudy caramel colour, toffee-like. A big off-white head on tap. Good retention and lacing.

Smell strongly contains pineapple juice. That scent dominates. Citrus scents as well, very juicy.

The pineapple flavour is strong and somewhat overwhelming. Citrus, caramel malt are there as well. Bitter, but a lot of sweetness from the pineapple juice.

Medium to full bodied, moderate to low carbonation. Oily.

Overall, I know many people noted that the pineapple in Spearhead's Hawaiian Style Pale Ale was not particularly notable. Well, they have corrected that in this beer. The pineapple juice is incredibly strong- too much for me.
