On tap at Sam Choys in Honolulu, HI. Poured a medium to deeper orangish / copper color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of floral green hoppiness, citrus and some caramel. Tastes follow suit. Light to medium bitter.

Draft: poured copper with a smallish beige head. Aroma of hops and some pine. Flavor is hoppy, a little pine and pineapple. Some caramel notes. Quite enjoyable.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Decent cloudy amber color. Not enough hops to satisfy my taste. Bland and boring. Should have left it on the island.

Red, thinly topped. This is a bit thin, but sweet and elegantly hopped. Not bad.

GABF 2003: Clear orange color, soft hops aroma, full bodied and ends bitter. A bit sour in the ending suggests that this beer wasn't in its prime.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
GABF-03: Dark amber, close to no head. Mild aroma of scotch-like hops. Pale, bready, with a little malts behind, but with an medicine flavor as well. Hay, sour fruit. Not hitting the style, IMO,. but it's still decent.

Clear red-amber colour. Strong piney hops in the aroma and flavour. Very crisp body with a tasty lingering finish. A nice IPA, and the highlight of my Sam Choy sampling.
