3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a bright amber with orange highlights and a finger of white, creamy head. The nose is sweet and fruity with a noticable grapefruit and a slight tropical fruit note. The middle has a sweet caramel and bready malt with a big citrus fruit and light floral notes on the finish accompanying a moderate hop bitterness. Slightly resinous mouthfeel with a mild alcohol presence. Overall, a pretty good IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ their Honolulu Pub... One of my favorites from our visit. Poured clear amber/orange with a fluffy, white head. Very citrusy in hop flavor with also added pine. It dried out towards the end allowing some alcohol characters to come through too. Some malt sweetness as well as light fruits like passion fruit attempted to balance the bitterness but the hops came through allowing for a nice bitter finish.

Draft at Taphouse. Deep amber with a creamy head. Rich woodsy aroma. Drinks with quite the robust character, almost like an IIPA. Thick and strongly flavored. (#4186, 7/23/2011)

Pours a nice burnt orange color with with head. Nice lacing. Aroma is sweet with hints of fruit and hops. Taste is hoppy with some malts. The alcohol coming through. Warm. Not bad, but I wouldn’t want to be stranded with this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2010 Sample at the brewpub in Kailua. The beer is a slightly hazy copper-orange color with a thick and fluffy off-white head that disperses slowly. Sticky rings of lacing. Floral hops aroma along with some malt and sweet fruit. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops flavor that has a nice floral character. Notes of pine and malt as well. The finish is hoppy with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Above average overall.
