COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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°

Hops: Galaxy, Citra

An easy drinking light ale. This beer's Hawaiian heritage definitely shows through - smells like pears and has a tropical fruit aftertaste. Features a floral, almost sweet, hoppy taste, very straightforward. Unusual in that it almost tastes like fruit juice mixed with beer, but makes for a successful refreshing brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Salmoniform (459) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Poured from tap to glass at the Kailua brewery. Crystal clear golden hue with delicate white head that dissipated to a thin ring. Aroma is straw, tangerine, cereal, guava. Mouthfeel is refreshing with a light body and soft but zesty carbonation. Taste is dry grainy sweetness throughout with a slight bitter following and clean finish. Overall this is a decent brew but is a bit heavy on the cereal essence.

Clear golden with white fizzy head. Sweet aroma with a little citrus. Easy-drinking, refreshing summer-ish beer. Okay.

SDalkoholic (2124) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle from Wal Mart: Poured a golden lager with almost no formation of fizzy head. The aroma is tame with scents of light grain malt. The drink is simple and bland with minimal amount of hop and grassy malt but this beer is nothing memorable and overpriced compared to all the other micros on the shelves.
