COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(I.P.A). was developed in England around 1800; the extra strength in alcohol and hops helped preserve the beer on its long export journeys to India and beyond. The style has developed a following worldwide. Ours begins with smooth, malty creaminess and a big burst of dry-hop flavor and aroma from a variety of American hops. It finishes with a lingering yet pleasant bitterness. Is it Overboard? You decide.

Theydon_Bois (8667) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle in our appartment in Maui, from Safeway Lahaina, 25/04/14. Lightly hazed golden amber with a good sized off white covering that retains well. Nose is bitter hops, pink grapefruit, citric pithdom, sharp tangerine intake, grassy tones. Taste comprises light mineral vibes, pine, bitter grapefruit, juicy hops, orange pith, sweet malt, light caramel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop bitterness in the close. Solid IPA - this brewery was probably the find of my trip to the United Rates in terms of never having heard of them and both beers I had were excellent. sank this bomber on my ownsome in double quick time!

beernbourbon (1299) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Tap at the Brewhaus. Pour is clear gold with a thin tan. Aroma and flavor loaded with bright citrus hops and a softly sweet biscuit malt base. Really clean and full. Certainly not light but really well done. This was my favorite.

Bottle from a ABC Store, Honolulu, August 2013. Dark golden with a medium head. Fresh hoppy aroma and taste with pine, citrus, caramel and some flowers. Also some malt and biscuits. Rather sweet but nicely drinkable. A pleasant one.

Overboard, no. Fantastically delicious yes. This could be compared to Sculpin IPA with it’s fruity and citrus aromas. The mild sweetness up front and pleasant bitterness balance this beer out great. A true gem hidden on the big island.
