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

bobaidan (512) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - JUL 9, 2008
A pretty typicla golden ale. Pours gold (duh) with a medium sized head. Aroma is slightly hoppy with a bit of sweet malt. Mouthfeel is lively with lots of carbonation. Flavor is kind of blah with not much happening. Not terrible, just nothing special.

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 27, 2008
The last of my Maui brews brought back by Rockley. This is a nice clean pale lager, with subtle melon fruit and floral hop tones, and a clean finish. The perfect beer to have while building my new BBQ on a sunny Calgary Saturday afternoon.

changeup45 (1717) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2008
The first of the several beers I tried while in Maui. Pours a hazy nectar color with very little head, but some and some lacing. Sweet fruity tasting with a touch of bitter hops. Not overly flavorful but there’s enough there to be a refreshing brew. I did however feel it was a little too sweet and could have used more hop flavor. Still pretty good in that Hawaiian sun, but what isn’t

junon (420) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - APR 10, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2009 Typical with 1 exception. This has an odd bite that suggest something stronger than it should be. This beer isnt going to blow your mind but its a solid release.
