4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
