COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our brewers wanted to make a beer that went down easy after a day out on the water. Big Wave Golden Ale is just the ticket. Big Wave is a lighter bodied golden ale with a tropical hop aroma and flavor – a smooth, easy drinking refreshing ale. The use of caramel malt contributes to the golden hue of this beer and our special blend of hops provides bright quenching finish. 10.3°

Malts: Pale (Premium 2-Row), Caramel
Hops: Galaxy, Citra

Pour from bottleshare. Gold/amber with slight white head. Aroma of pineapple, orange, grapefruit. Taste is light and crisp - citrus, decent caramel malt. Surprised this is rated so low. I didn’t mind it at all.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 10:41-MAR 14 14. Golden pale yellow pour with a white fizzy heads that dissolves fast. Good toasted biscuit malt aroma on the nose, grain, and a crisp light hop note. Medium and smooth body. The taste starts mildly malty and grainy and ends with a nice bitter bite.

Light and simple. Faint piney hops. Good for a backyard or a BBQ. I could drink a bunch of these in a row.

Overall clean and refreshing, enjoyed straight from the bottle. As advertised it is not overpowering and has a delightful citrus aroma and a bright citrus flavor.

Similar to an IPA but instead of a pine flavor it had pineapple/grapefruit. Pretty good.
