3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2009 On tap at Kona Koko Marina. Pours clear orange-amber with practically no head. Nose is mostly floral hops- pine and marijuana- with a little caramel. Tastes like it smells, but with the malty sweetness a little more pronounced. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thick and finish is long.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Koko Marina Pub.
Pours a nice copper orange with a decent white head. Aroma is citrusy hops, pine, malt. Flavor is much the same with a lot of citrus, hops, pine, and a decent malt backbone to balance it all out. The dry hopping is quite noticable and adds a lot of aroma and taste to this one. Good IPA.

On tap, Koko Marina. Poured a golden color with a small head. Aroma of citrus, spice and grass. Palate was medium-full bodied, with a chewy mouthfeel and light carbonation. Flavor featured citrus, hops and nice malt touches. Quite solid brew, perhaps could have gone stronger on the flavors.

Very nice IPA here. Bold hop aroma and flavor are things I love, this beer did not disappoint. Aroma was citrus with some grapefruit and a sweetness. Flavor followed suit. Body was refreshing and the finish was smooth bitterness. Nice.

Draft at the brewpub in Honolulu. Solid amber in color with a moderate white head. The nose was on the sweet side showing off citric and floral hops. In the mouth the hops were balanced by some sweet malt leading to a rich midpalate with a dry/bitter finish.
