Say ALOHOG to Summer

You’ll Go ‘Coconut-ty’ For HogsBack’s Latest Limited Edition Seasonal Beer

A taste of the tropics comes to Ontario this summer with the release of ALOHOG Coconut Pale Ale – the latest in a series of Limited Edition seasonal beers from Ottawa’s HogsBack Brewing Company.

ALOHOG Coconut Pale Ale is spectacular summer beer infused with a hint of toasted coconut … just perfect to enjoy on a hot day. The beer pours a clear golden color, with the aroma first hinting of the delicious coconut within along with sweet pale malt, citrus and some piney hops. The taste is malty then citrusy and then a lovely coconut flavor finishes the beer off, ending mildly dry and slightly peppery. Mouthfeel is light-to-medium body and smoothly sweet with medium carbonation. Overall, this beer is balanced, smooth and exceptional for summer quaffing.

What would go great with a nice tropical tasting summer beer? – How about a LUAU!!!
