Honey and hips on the nose. Appearance is dark orange with white sticky head. Taste is a mild ale with an earthy yet fruity kick. Not bad. Poured from draft at Kauai Island Brewing tap room, part of a flight.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewpub.
Head is fully diminishing.
Body is medium to dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (dough), with a hint of passionfruit.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Easy drinking, simple blonde ale. A touch more bitterness would be nice, but it’s quaffable and enjoyable as-is.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ the brewpub in Port Allen, Kauai, Hawaii. Hazy orange-kissed gold. Aroma is sweet fruity candy (Rockets). Muted palate, still that candy essence is here, ending in a pithy aspirin bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
The aroma is deceiving, it smells of citrus and pine and making me think it would be hoppy but almost no flavor, just a little bit of bitterness towards the end.
