2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Amber in color with a small head. Hoppy aromas with a light malty taste and hoppy finish. Nothing special.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Has an orangeish amber color with little head and moderate carbonation. Has a nice hop smell. Taste is slightly malted and finishes with a somewhat tinny hop bitterness. Overall I am not too happy with the offerings from this brewery. This is not that bad, but I would spend my money elsewere...

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Depressing. This one is not even as good as the Kona Longboard Lager. It has a poor head like its Longboard counterpart, hosts a mediocre taste, flaunts a coppery finish and aroma, and flops back exhaustably fatiguing, a complete failure, saddening. Overrated and uninspiring in every way. And, as my friend said, 'It's a really pissy smell, dude.' He then proceeded to apologise to me that I had to drink this sad beer as he quaffed his Ayinger Weisse...

Bottle. I may have gotten an old bottle - hard to tell the age of some of these things sitting around smaller beer shops... Poured amber yellow, cloudy with a thin head that disappeared almost instantly. Aroma is definitely hoppy, but also slightly sour and skunky. Flavor is light maltiness, with tart, bitter hops and a metallic taste that really says "I'm just a little too old for you young man!". Mouthfeel is pleasant with a still lively carbonation. I look forward to finding another bottle at some point and doing a re-rate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange-yellow with a thin tacky top. Gristy and malty with light fresh tartness. Pretty good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A great golden color and a hazy body. I really enjoyed the clinging, lacy head and the easy taste: not too malty or hoppy. A nice, fresh aroma that was more clean than flowery or fruity. Definitely a nicely complex but not too complicated ale. Perfect for the bright and breezy Hawaiian weather in which it was enjoyed.

On tap. Golden body, decent head, sweet nose. Very mild hoppiness and a light body.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Uninspiring. Certainly a hop taste, but from a strange hop I've never had before. Wierd bite with a funny after taste. Not a bad beer, but really not good either.
