From bottle in less-than-appropriate flanged glass in room at Hilton Hawaiian Village. In spite of this, it was quite a smooth, enjoyable drop. Cloudy amber with fleeting head. More creamy malt than hop-driven putting it in the minority of the IPA community. Still, it was quite nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. From a supermarket in Honolulu, HI.
Clear amber color with a tiny grayish white head.
Piney hops, moderate bitterness, sweet malt, dried fruits and sugar in the aroma.
The flavor is sweet fruity hops, canned fruits, pineapple, herbs, moderate bitterness and sweet malt. Balanced. Oh boy I wish I had this fresh!

65 cl bottle @ Timo A. Thanks rosenbergh!
Pours clear orange color with a small head. Nice floral hoppy aroma with tropical fruits, some resin and pine. Flavor is fruity and somewhat sweet, resinous hoppy and slightly malty too, some pineapple on the background. Bitter palate. Nice, though this would be excellent more fresh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a light orange color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and some light lacing notes. Aroma of citrus hops notes with dry malt base. Taste is also dominated by citrus hops notes with light bitter notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Old school IPA with maybe a little shortage on the hops flavours side of things.

Impressive tropical fruit aroma in a golden amber pour. Flavour is similarly fruity without becoming sweet. Restrained finish is crisp and clean. Probably the best of the local (Hawaii) brews I’ve had so far.

On tap at lava lava. A very hoppy IPA and also very good. The best Hawaiian beer I have had. A very good IPA regardless of where it was brewed. Hoppy flowery smell with a nice sweet hoppy taste:
