With all-natural ingredients, the Keoki Sunset’s mahogany color hints at it’s subtle balance of delicious, rich flavors. A slight roasted malt taste and good hop aroma gives this Hawaii beer a bittersweet chocolate complexity and a velvet-like body with a quaffable character.

Malts: 2-Row Brewers Malt, Carapils, White Wheat, Caramel Vienne, Carmel 120L
Hops: Simcoe, for bittering and Vanguard, for flavor and aroma

Bottle. Pours an opaque medium brown with quickly disappearing white head. Aroma of malts, light brown sugar, and slight whiff of hops. Flavor is dominated by sweet malts. Easy drinking, but not super complex.

Pretty typical APA here, although not very strong-tasting. It has a malty aftertaste, which is not bad, but the hops are barely noticeable. Drinkable, though, which is perfect in this Maui weather.

Nice beer. Has a subtle fruit back beat. Nice color. Palate was a bit off, but it was nice while watching an actual sunset in Maui. ---Posted via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 9, 2012
Pint purchased from The Lighthouse Bistro on Kauai Island on 04/08/2012. Colour: Dark brown with red hues. Minimal head. Nose: Lots of caramel covering well-roasted malt. Plant vegetation and small traces of floral. Lots of swirling brings out some pureed tomato. Taste: Medium sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour. Caramel coats mouth on-set, then the hops emerge and bring the toastiness with them. Finish is slight sour and small tough of mushroom appears....lingering bittnerness.

Caramel through aroma and taste. Aroma is super faint though. Amber color with no head at all. Hops cleared away the sweetness.

Hazy brownish glow with a dense tan head and a cloudy appearance - nice! Aroma of caramel, raisins, light caster sugar and a little grapes and nuts - pretty good. Medium-bodied; Assertive hops at first with a lot of pit fruit and caramel tucked in with a little earthy and metallic aftertaste. Aftertaste shows a lot of bitter tastes with metal, hops, malt and a little nutty finish. Overall, a pretty nice beer - complex in its own right (not necessarily an APA) but a good beer with a lot of flavours. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased the last time I was in Hawaii (on the Island of Hawaii [Big Island]) in 2008 on the eve of returning to the islands, sampled at home in Washington on 03-March-2011.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 Bottle (labeled "Hawai’i Nui Sunset Amber") shared at the "AK to the HB" tasting on 12/30/10: Pours a clear orange color with a medium thin white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrusy hops and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of mild hops, fruit and malt. The finish is short and lightly hoppy. Pretty average overall.
