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

oh6gdx (20334) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2007
Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is hops, hay and quite bready along with some caramel. Flavour is hops, paper, caramel and bread. Not the most exciting APA.

Draught at the Yard House, Honolulu, HI
Hazy amber color with creamy head. Some aroma of paper and butter. The mouthfeel is smooth; there is some malt flavor and evident traces of butter. Ordinary bitterness.
A common beer, with some (too much) diacetyl.

TBone (12548) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2007
Bottled 33cl
Amber color, small off-white head. Rye bready, a bit yeasty aroma. Bready hoppy, some flowery notes. Quite light palate - easy to drink, easy to forget -APA. Thanks to Brunnsbe for a new state!

Dogbrick (8145) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2010
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.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 2, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2008 Pretty complex for a Hawaiian brew. Deep floral aroma with raisins and yeast overriding anything else. Pours with an average off-white head, typical APA amber color. Taste finishes with a note of bitter chocolate. Interesting but not amazing.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2002
Bright ruby/copper colored with a small white head. It’s a little malty for a pale ale, nor does it have nearly the hoppiness it should. It’s not very distinctive, but it goes down smooth.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Draft. Rich amber beer with cream colored head. Malt aroma. Caramel and light vanila flavor. Medium-light bodied. Caramel lingers. Little to no hops.

DuffMan (6752) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 13, 2014
On tap @ Kalapaki Joe’s. medium amber, thin off white head. Caramel with a pleasant stone fruit character and medium bitterness. More like a hoppy amber than an APA, but decent drinking.
