Ipa esotica e rinfrescante, ben luppolata per un effetto amaro intenso e avvolgente, accompagnato da note di frutta tropicale, leggeri agrumi e sentori citrici che ti fanno realmente sentire sulla cresta dell’onda!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Light (not mild), zesty smell of malt and piney/citrusy hops.
Mouthfeel: This one is quite a mouthful. I particularly like the oily feel.
Taste: Quite bitter, but with a good amount of balancing sweetness in the background. Tropical fruit notes, a hint of
honey flafour and nutty touches. Alcohol is evident but not disturbing.
Finish: Long lasting bitterness that remains on the palate and down the throat.
Overall: A delicious, refreshing IPA. Kudos to Maui Brewing!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
US, can from Antenna America. Served in a pint glass. It pours a tad paler than I’d ideally like in an IPA but it is in the right orange-gold ballpark with a thick creamy off-white head of foam that lingers as well as leaves tons of lacing behind. The nose is a fantastic blend of tropical & citrus fruits, nice hoppy herbal notes also come into play-good stuff. The taste is not as strong as the nose. It’s smooth body is still pleasant with resin, pine cone, citrus and a fairly strong mouth puckering bitterness. A pretty good IPA that would make a great palate cleanser.

Can. Pours a straw color with nice foamy white head. Aroma hints at a huge malt bomb; sweet and sticky. Taste is bitter, no real citrus coming through and an overly big malt backbone. More personal taste than anything, but I really don’t care for this style of IPA. Can may have had some age on it, would like to try fresh as some point.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Golden pour with a frothy white head. Minimal bitterness (no floral notes) and some light sweet malt in the aroma. Taste is dry bitterness and sweet malt - no pine, no floral notes, and no citrus. Semi-clean mouthfeel. Basic; below average for style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml can from The Local Pub, Athens. Sparkling orange color with a white head that left lacings on the glass. Aromas of pine, citrus and tropical fruits at first. The taste was pretty much the same, more intense with bitter orange and maybe lemon. Holding the sip in the mouth for a couple of seconds added a nice sweetness to second the hops. The aftertaste was long and dry and very pleasant. The body was light to medium and the carbonation was medium, maybe the only disadvantage. I prefer a more flat carbo profile. A very nice beer, nontheless!!
