3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Brownish orange in colour with A LOT of floaties and medium carbonation. Aromas are of pale malt, sweet orange, and a bit of pine resin. Fresh orange comes through much stronger on the palate, with the pale malt backing off a bit. Notes of melon and dried leaves are present in the background. Medium bodied with a solid bitterness. Still a bit on the heavy side for me, but the blood orange is an interesting addition. Would be curious to see what such an addition would do to their regular strength IPA.

draft offering at SL ipa event..not really a deep red hue as billed but more of a copper penny color..slightly hazy...aroma doesn’t have as much as expected of the tangerine and the blood orange..but they come through in the taste..orange burst..slight lemon action..fruit bomb that works in a good way..medium bodied with a slight punch of the abv..i enjoyed this very much..not getting much of the cane sugar..

Can. A darkish hazy orange brown color with a white head. The sweet citrus of the fruits is very present in the aroma, but it ends up a little jumbled on the palate and finish.

A sediment ridden reddish/orange/brown. Aromas of blood orange and onions. Interesting. Flavours are vegetal hops... That onion thing again. Picking up the blood orange too. Interesting... And good.

Kind of an ugly brown/amber body with sediment and off-white frothy head and lacing. Citrus aroma, oranges, a touch of resin. Taste is again citrus, maybe even some pineapple, semi-bitter, juicy fruit, grapefruit pith. Nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Amber with a modest white head. A few floaties. Easy to believe there’s actual citrus juice and zest as well as hops in there from the aroma, but there’s some bread and herbal notes as well. Lots of grapefruit and blood orange with a real pithiness to it. Light bread, slight toast, herbal or leafy lemon, menthol. Bitterness is strong: enough to stop it seeming fruit saladish. Maybe edging up on harsh but that’s probably where it needs to be. Fun to drink, slips down dangerously easily.

Great blood orange and tangerine aroma. The taste does not have enough of the orange, it's more of an orange zest flavor. Still a good IPA, just did not match the aroma. Very solid offering from Maui Brewing Co.

ENG: 355ml can from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the IPA glass. Dark-orange to copper color with some residues from oranges probably. Medium but dissipating, tan head. Strong tropical aromas with great hoppy notes. Tastes also tropical, oranges with a bit spicy hoppy character. Some additional floral notes. Tarty bitter aftertaste. Medium carbonation, medium body. Overall very interesting beer with hints of blood oranges. Smells like Hawaii! Taste (and aftertaste) is a bit tarty and bitter a little bit too settling, but still tastes great!
PL: Puszka 355ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do IPA glass. Barwa ciemno-pomarańczowa wpadająca w miedzianą, sporo osadu, najprawdopodobniej z dodanych czerwonych pomarańczy. Piana jasna, średnia, lecz szybko opadająca. Mocne, tropikalne aromaty z świetnymi nutami chmielowymi. W smaku również tropiki, pomarańcze i nieco ostry, chmielowy charakter. Gdzieś w tle nieco kwiatów. W posmaku cierpka goryczka. Średnie nasycenie, średnie odczucie w ustach. Podsumowując bardzo interesujące piwo z dodatkiem czerwonych pomarańczy. Pachnie Hawajami! W smaku (i posmaku) może nieco cierpkie a goryczka lekko zalegająca, ale mimo wszystko smakuje świetnie!
