3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Oak Barrel Hki airport. Yellowish orange beer with no significant head. Aroma is mostly malts, caramel, some piney and peachy hops. Maybe this is a bit old sample? Taste is resinous, some peaches and tropical fruits, same maltiness dominates, but still ok. Finishes quite smooth and bitter. Mouthfeel was medium+ and co2 on the higher side. Quite ok, I'm feeling my sample wasn't the freshest.

Bottle. $1.75 Wine Warehouse.
Pours golden, slightly hazy, tiny head.
Smells of hops, a bit of grass, almost lagery.
Taste is strong hops, not overly flavorful, and finishes quite bitter. OK.

Citrus pine aroma in a golden amber pour. Light hop forward balance with fruity body and sustained bitter finish. The best of the regular Kona brews in my book.

A solid offering from Kona, which I have not re-visited in a long while. Nicely balanced and inoffensive IPA; it reaches that medium sweet and bitter medium. Nice aroma. Nice brew. Serving Size: Multi-12oz bottled experience.

Pours golden with a nice foamy head. Aroma is lovely citrus fruits, a little cheese on the end of the nose too. Sweet, malty and citrus flavours burst through with just a hint of bitterness.

A little dry and bitter for my liking. Not terrible but the balance is almost but not quite right. Still, I’ll drink it and happily open another!

From tap. Pours a hazy orange with decent white head. Aroma was great with tropical fruits and a little bread. Taste was clean with lots of tropical fruit and balanced lite malt. Easy drinking.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Schiuma bianca, fine e mediamente persistente.
Colore giallo paglierino con corpo non del tutto limpido e trasparente.
Nell’aroma prevale un bel profumo di frutta tropicale e a pasta gialla (al mio naso spicca l’albicocca) ed, in seconda battua, emerge un sentore erbaceo; il malto si fa notare per un buon odore di miele.
Al palato corpo è medio, carbonatazione assente, si rivela estremamente equilibrata (l’amaro c’è ma risulta piacevole e non stressante per le papille) ed armonica.

Six pack bottles from BC Liquor store in north Burnaby. Nice orange bronze color with generous beige head and faintly citrus nose. Crisp citrus piney hop notes balanced by robust satisfying malts. Yes! 3.7.
