On tap at some Mexican restaurant near Kona. Started badly, finished better. Strangely much better with Mexican food, which made it start tasting like a rich fruity pale ale.

On tap at Yard House Waikiki 201214. Great flavour in this beer. Super malty with biscuit, caramel and toffee flavours coming through. True to its name this beer pours copper red with a light tan head. While the aroma is moderate the flavour more than makes up for it.

Poured from tap to glass at the Kailua brewery. Crystal clear red hue with creamy off white head. Aroma is malty, rye?, pepper, cocoa, melon. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry sweet initially with a spicy bitter following that extends into the finish. Overall this is a pretty nice red ale.
