2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear, thin golden with a minimal white head. I was impressed with the aroma. It is very citrus and fruity. Lots of peaches especially, with orange, pineapple, and floral hops. The taste really sours unfortunately. It retains a bit of the strong peach impressions, but is actually more bland. Maybe somewhat grainy, but the best description is that it is almost lacking any taste. Thin, watery body. This really began with much promise from my first impression, but turned out to be a disappointment.

Similar to an IPA but instead of a pine flavor it had pineapple/grapefruit. Pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 11/25/13 and poured 2/12/14.
Appearance: First, I like the shape of the bottle and custom design. Pours clear, pale yellow. Alright lacing. Tiny head.
Smell: Pleasant. Little sweet. A light hop aroma. Some malt. A bit grainy. Basic, but a solid smell. The hoppy note was a nice little surprise.
Taste/feel: Good brew. Thin feel with moderate carbonation. Good drinkability at only 4.4%. Solid hop flavor without a lot of bitterness. Slight malt sweetness at the end. A good amount of grain Simple, but done very well.
A definite summer, or to be more precise, beach beer. Light, refreshing, nice bit of hops, highly sessionable ABV... could have been a very "eh" beer, but it’s actually very solid for the style. Not super interesting, but tasty enough. Would definitely have this one again, especially in the heat when I want something light. My first (and certainly not last) beer from Kona. Mahalo!
