From Spearhead Brewing Company:
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.
Appearance | Cloudy amber and orange with a lingering head.
Smell | Stunning aromas of bitter citrus and hops. While grapefruit is evident, pineapple is the prominent aroma.
Taste | Healthy with hops, pineapple, malts, lemon, grain, and honey.
Aftertaste | Tart with hops and fruit.
Overall This brew has same attitude as a IPA, but is not as heavy. It is hoppy enough to be taken seriously for its taste, but could also be consumed as a session beer on a hot afternoon. This pale ale uses pineapple to balance between between sweet and sour on the palate. The process of dry-hopping (adding hops after the fermenting process) is what makes it so aromatic.
Spearhead Brewing Company also has two other beer in its lineup: Moroccan Brown Ale and Belgium Stout. Look for reviews on these brews in the future!
