Plenty of honey from the malt and a light citrus, pine taste from the hops. Golden ale is not normally my thing but this was surprisingly good. Nice and light. Good for a summer session.

Bottle. Smells fruity and sweet. Pours translucent gold with no head. Taste follows the smell with a mild citrus aftertaste. Decent summer brew.

From notes: Poured hazy golden amber with a 1-finger white head. Aroma is bright and citrusy. Body is light with a slight fizziness and a brief, lightly dry finish. Flavor is lemony with a touch of yeast underneath.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not bad swillin brew. Very grapefruity taste and fruit aroma. Like the islands...Mango guava maybe a little pineapple. Hops are not too strong. Hardly any malt . A bit watery but not bad on a hot day working in the yard type stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma - passion fruit and citrus notes from Galaxy and Citra hops. Low malt notes due to pungent hops used.
Color - deep gold and slight orange hues.
Flavor - very crips and clean. Finishes with citrus and passion fruit notes. Malt comes through to balance the intense hops flavors. Very good
Mouthfeel - highly carbonated with thin head that persists lacing down the glass. Oils from hops create a slight slick.
Overall Impression - a very good golden ale. Enjoy passion fruit and citrus notes from hops. Adds great character for such a light beer. Definitely reminds me of Hawaii. One of my favorite beers that Kona brews.

Cloudy pale yellow golden colour with a tiny white head.
Exotic fruits, sweetness and candies in the aroma.
The flavour is quite subtle fruity hops, sweetness and some maltiness. Very soft carbonation. Watery.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Initial grain taste, but then nothing. Body is watery, no palate or lingering aftertaste. Light grain/malt aroma. Looks like a lager on pour. Pass on this one.(might be a good thirst quencher in the summer)
