markwise (5085) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Kona Brewing. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is a nice burst of tropical fruit, guava, and citrus with some light malt behind it. Flavor is similar with a burst of tropical fruit, guava, kumquats, and citrus in the flavor package as well. Finishes with some tropical fruit-- medium to light in body and a nice IPA overall.

kraddel (5724) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2016
Pours clear blonde, OK white head. Smell is dry, rather malty, very mildly bitter, hints of aromatic hops. Taste is sharp, very grainy, bit bitter. not much aroma. the aftertaste is quite good ( a very nice blended taste of bitterness and hops ) but its unintense. The taste itself is quite unintence too, very simple, and not nearly as aromatic as I had hoped. Ok beer, but certainly nothing more, especially in it’s style.

MelvinKalksma (688) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, tropical fruit, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Hazy/turbid golden/amber beer with a slight/medium white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange and tropical fruit; ends slightly bitter and medium dry with hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is really balanced with a fruity dryhopped flavour. Could have been more intense and less simple however.
