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

Tap. Pours a light gold. Great hop aroma. Initial taste had some grapefruit and citrus flavors, like a good IPA but without lots of bitter aftertaste. The flavors wore off slightly as I worked my way through the beer, which was the only down side. This was a pretty good beer and one of the best lower gravity beers I’ve had in awhile.

355ml bottle into shaker. I love the design of the labels from this brewery! Smells of guava, melon and lemon with an earthy funkiness lurking in the background. Hazy amber beer with thin clingy foamy head. Very light carbonation. Thin body, crisp taste. Finish is more fruit salad with a touch of malt. Easy-drinking and good.
