Draft. I’ve read the recipe changes, but this version has a lovely burnt orange hue with outstanding clarity and a soap-bubble off-white head. The aroma and flavor are both very tropical, blending mango, apricot and pineapple. A little caramel sneaks into the nose; the flavor has added orange peel bitterness and just a hint of something herbal, like licorice. Not overly bitter -- the finish is fairly mild. Pillow-soft light body; gentle carbonation. A nice little IPA.

kaser (4065) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Orange color with white sticky head. Aroma is a fantastic tropical, candy, and hoppy one. Grapefruit and west coast IPA style. So good. Best beer here. Poured from draft at Kauai Island Brewing tap room, part of a flight.

Hazed golden color with white head. Hoppy aroma. Moderately sweet at first then nice and hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fletchfighters (1252) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2014
On tap at the brewery Hazy orange yellow color, very yeasty looking. White collar. Fruity nose. Lots of tropical and pine notes. Guava, passion fruit, orange, and lots of peel. Highly bitter and malty at the same time. Aspirin like bitterness, not really enjoyable. Tastes like the bottom of the keg. Gritty and harsh beer

DuffMan (7996) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 5, 2014
On tap @ the brewpub in Port Allen, Kauai, Hawaii. Cloudy orange tinted gold. Aroma of cotton candy, orange peel, light florals. Tropical fruit hop character, light powdery candy, long bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Another solid IPA from these guys, but I prefer the Captain Cook.

bnoel09 (474) - Elk Grove, California, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Medium amber color. Aroma is predominantly caramel malt but also has some floral hop notes. Flavor is slightly malty with a nice balance of citrusy and floral hop notes. Light/medium bodied with a fairly smooth mouthfeel. Very sessionable IPA.

adamah (214) - - MAY 19, 2013
Wow! Tropical mango and orange aromas with a hint of pine. Malty sweet up front but agressively hoppy. This could stand with some other big name west coast IPAs.
