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

Draft. A simple and sweet golden ale with notes of passion fruit, honey / sugar syrup / agave and minerals. Light body, low bitterness, low acidity, flabby and watery texture with saccharine and rice cake and mild DMS concrete mix in the finish.

BREWMUSKCLES (2441) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2014
What we have here is an easy drinker with a a cleaner finish, a powered up golden farina and deep cracker barley malt with hoppy tangerine and grape roll of hop that reminds you in the burp in case you didnt get it. so what keeps it from being a great session? answer; nothin! best 4.% whatever i ever had.

CardsPackHawks (137) - Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Deep golden color, with hoppy aroma. Taste a bit like an IPA. The hops are there but not overpowering. Goes down real smooth, would make for a good summer brew. Picked up one as part of a create your own 6 pack. Would grab this again.

12oz bottle from Total Wine in Cary. Golden hue, sparkling clarity with mostly lasting white fizzy head. Fair lacing. Hoppy citrus and grass on the nose. Bitter crisp hop on the initial taste with a light hop and pine finish. Good beer to drink at the beach, on the water or after cutting the grass.
