Poured a reddish copper color with medium sized off-white head that quickly dissipated. Non-descript small malty nose. Sweet sucrose flavor. Not very exciting, but quite palpable. FInished with a little bite, but not too exciting.

Bottle from Immy, thanks Tim! My first beer from this state, yay! Pours deep copper liquid, topped with a generous neoge froth. The head lives and laces well. AMerican hoppy aroma, lemon, good pine presence, biscuit, spicy malts, cookie. Very crisp and hoppy, pine needles, spicy malts, some rye bread, bubblegum, a touch of pepper. FInishes bitter, slightly astringent, hoppy aftertaste. Good one. Thanks a lot Tim!

A decent flavored Pale Ale but not much body to it. Some astringency with the lemon, orange, honey and soap. It’s got that pennies taste to it. Very thin and metallic mouthfeel.

Very robust flavor in this fine hawaiin beer. Large malty aroma of caramel and solid hops. The body is thick caramel malts as well. Very good session beer, very good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really foamy (erupting out of the bottle), cloudy copper color. Slightly soapy, smoky and spicy flavors, with a citrus undertone and a dry-as-powder finish. Not as bad as it sounds; actually pretty tasty, but a bit heavy-feeling.
[12 oz. bottle]

Thanks to Dorwart for the beer… brew’s been in the back of my frig for a long time.
Pours a nice copper body and a fluffy ivort head. the aroma is grainy, bready and sweet; with some hints of lemon grass and piney hops. The flavor hints of honey, red apple, plums, but finishes dry, citric and resin like. Earthy, well balanced APA… better than I’d had expected the beer being!

12 oz bottle I picked up in Florida. Clear amber with a light beige, almost yellowy, head. Citrus and floral nose, sweet caramel malt. Flavor follows the nose, a good APA.
