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.

mikkos (303) - FINLAND - AUG 27, 2015
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hershiser2 (1451) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 24, 2015
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.

beer-yum (879) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 22, 2015
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.
