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

Bottle. Pour is golden as expected with white head. Aroma of citrus (grapefruit) and tropical fruits with grain undertones. Taste is grainier than the fruity aroma but has a hint of bitterness. Great session beer. Body is very light/drinkable but full flavored.

ESBob (379) - Indiana, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Poured a mostly clear golden yellow with decent white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is a slightly floral hop combo. Taste is a light bodied honey, bread and light caramel character. Thinner mouthfeel. An easy drinker, sample in the winter, but this beer would be great during hot summer days and a good one to introduce to craft beer newbies.
