On tap at the brewery, Brewpub, poolside at the Sheraton and various restaurants. A few of the Maui Brewing beers were available everywhere on this part of Maui. Poured a hazy amber-gold with a fine, off-white head and lace. Aroma of biscuit, pineapple, caramel and orange. Taste of biscuit, pineapple, citrus, tropical fruit and caramel. Medium body and medium carbonation.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 355ml can on 14/10/2014. Pours a cloudy golden with a medium to biggish fine white head. The nose is relatively muted with a bit of fruit and some minor floral notes presenting. Flavour wise, this is quite a sweet one with lots orange apricot and marmalade up front, followed by a solid, dry lingering hop bitterness. The palate is quite creamy and the carbonation is average. This is a bit unusual - it almost has a dessert like character. But I like sweet, so I’m not complaining. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gift from a friend. Pours like any other can. Head is thin but persistent. Initial bitterness cedes way to pine and citrus notes. Large amount of hops. Mouth feel is shock from the hops. Not expected from a can. Lingering mouth feel is slightly herbal with constant reminder that this is a hoppy beer. Overall, this could be your every-day go to beer. That is if you lived in Maui.

Had it from the can about 5 minutes from the brewery while on vacation in Maui. Easily the best canned beer (craft or otherwise) I’ve ever tasted. It has heavy malt tones that remind me of Midwest IPAs like Founder’s Centenial or Alpha King, but also has very strong citrus notes that balance everything out perfectly. Being on vacation may have boosted the experience, but I think this would be an easy go-to at the right price. Great IPA that really suits my personal tastes.

Pours a clear yellow. Nose is a balanced mix of fruits, flowers and pine. Pine with notes of grass and fruit. Long, sharply bitter aftertaste. Very nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Hazy light amber with a thin head. The aroma is fresh pine with dried orchard fruits. On the palate there is medium bitterness that is somewhat resinous, a fair bit of chewy malt, and a little alcohol in the finish. While the dry-hops come across fairly fresh for such a widely-distributed beer, the flavour hops are somewhat cheesy. All told I am certainly enjoying this on my cliffside perch in Huelo, but taken out of context it’s just an ok IPA.
