4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml. can, courtesy of Mara Mulrooney from Hawaii. Pours a beautiful hazy orange color with a medium white head that laces well to the sides of the glass. Aroma is strongly hoppy, delicious with intense pine, eucaliptus, peppermint, lemongrass and lime touches. Spruce and resiny notes dominate but give way to soft tropical fruits, especially guava, with a citrusy aura surrounding everything. Love it!... Taste is bitter, but not overpowering: Herbal and citrusy flavors in the spotlight. Rounded hop flavors that remind of green tea. Towards the end it gets this minty, refreshing touch. Really lovely! Light to medium body with well-hidden alcohol. Lively carbonation and incredible crispness. This one is a great IPA, different and daring but highly drinkable. One of the best I’ve tried.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hawaiian IPA from an elaborately adorned craft beer can which makes me dream of a tropical island. Hazy, orangey, ’old gold’ coloured beer with strings of bubbles here and there, supporting a medium thick and creamy, stable, delicately lacing, egg-white head. Strong hops aroma jumping to the nose when opening the can... I get a strong piney component of cedar needles or pine resin, along with hemp, yellow grapefruit, toasted bread, papaja, unprocessed cigarette tobacco, oregano, dried jalapeno peppers, apricot. Clean and crisp onset, fruity but already at this stage more so from hops than from esters, tangelo, dried apricot, mango, hops manifesting themselves from the start, bittering already with a salty edge, minerally carbo but not overcarbonated, smooth and supple, lightly caramelly malt body in the middle, only to support an ever-increasing hop character which ends in an apotheosis of piney, resiny, grapefruity, peppery bitterness, both very aromatic (retronasally) and very ’deep’, lasting for a long time and drying the root of the tongue, but allowing a bit of the juicy caramelly malts to seep through. Very fragrant, yet uncompromising, throat-drying, spicy, almost abrasively hoppy IPA, showing much more character than I had expected. An IPA with balls. Love it!

Lovely tropical fruit aroma in a golden amber pour. Hop forward taste to start is perfectly balanced by the full fruity body and the sustained bitter finish. One of, if not the best, of the local (Hawaii) brews.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light golden yellow body, foamy off-white head, good retention, nice lacing, yellower and less amber than a lot of IPAs. Citrus hoppy aroma. Taste is slightly bitter, with a sweet malt balance. Not bad.
