Golden-amber, thin head, mango and orange nose. Sweet and fruity character. Sticky malts have a touch of crystal. Nice hop character, maybe a bit too burly to truly enjoy more than a few sips, though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
GABF 2013. Pours a hazy orange appearance with a khaki head. Garlic-y, onion, tropical fruity, mango, pineapple aroma. Flavor has a weirdly stale taste to it that honestly reminded me of a six month old can of Big Swell IPA that I opened recently. Some tropical fruits in the flavor but kind of strange and dull at the same time.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Approximately 3-4 oz sampler at the Brewpub in Lahaina, Maui. The pour is orange copper, mostly clear, with not much head. The aroma is tropical fruit, along with lightly toasted malt. The taste is sweet tropical fruit hop, malt sweetness, and a decent alcohol burn in the back. The palate is medium bodied, low carbonation level, dry hot finish. Pretty boozy.

On tap at the brewery, Aloha, bitches! pours a copper witha nice head, good lacing. Aroma is amazing lots of tropical notes, mango, melon, passion fruit, and hints of dank hops. Must have a healthy dose of citra? The waiter was clueless when I asked. Flavour is similar, really tropical and fruity, but finishes with a nice sticky lupelin bitterness, amazing! The 100 ibus is so smooth, and the alcohol not noticeable! Fantastic beer!
