3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Grainy, fruity nose. Papaya or peach or something, herbal, a little pepper. Strange. Pours golden amber, frothy white head. Flavors of grain, peppery earthy notes, peach, papaya, and more grain. Easy to drink for an imperial golden ale. Interesting to drink.

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a large white head. The aroma has some yeast and fruit notes, as well as some biscuit malt. The flavor is similar. There is a nice biscuit and toasted malt character, as well as some nice citrus fruit. There is a bit of tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Canned 12/31/12] Hazy orange color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, toast, tropical fruits, some oxidation. Taste of citrus, toast, orange, tropical fruits, and a semi-sweet finish. Oxidation was surprising given the age.

Murky yellow, lively carbonation. Not much head. Smells fruity, like mango and other tropical fruits. I suppose thatís Breadfruit? Taste is fruity and lightly sour. Pretty refreshing. I liked it..

GABF, 2012. This one sounds more interesting that it is. I was expecting exotic flavors that I might not recognize, but what is there is sweetness with crackers. Gold color. Clean finish.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Hazy ornage and golden coloured body with a bit of a light copper glow, all with a half centimetre tall ugly off-white head. Aroma of light fruit, a touch of malt and just about nothing else, perhaps some honey. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong malt with a bit of yeast and a increasing bitter flavour that just persists and gets worse. Aftertaste shows a very bland flavour with some bitterness, a good dose of body (not sure where it comes from), a touch of yeast and perhaps the slightest bit of fruit. Overall, a pretty bad offering, perhaps one of the worst from Maui (but not DFH - there are way worse ones) yet. This isnít really ready for public consumption, unless you want to alienate folks who love either/both breweries. I wish I didnít take up room in my suitcase across the whole of the pacific and america for this. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Liquor Collection in Honolulu, Maui, Hawaii for US$3.50 on 10-December-2012 sampled at home in Washington (on the other end of this great land) on 20-September-2013.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can: Unusual aroma of bread, pencil shavings, sawdust, and triple sec. Clear amber, thin head. Lemongrass and thyme flavor with a pencil shaving flavor. Not excessively fruity. Medium body. Unusual, but not gimmicky as I expected. I would enjoy drinking this again.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Some tartness to the aroma. This is a strange beer. Itís frutiy but hard to identify any papaya at all. Iíve never had breadfruit so maybe thatís what Iím getting. Thereís some hops at time but also a fair amount of tartness. Strange but good. Really hard to rate, even after the whole 12 ounces.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on 3/18/2013. This fruit beer pours a very hazy pineapple orange gold color from a 12oz can. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, earthy and floral. A medium bodied fruit beer. The malts are fruity and sweet, tropical and bready. The hops are floral and citrusy. Good carbonation. Interesting combination of flavors, some fruity, some earthy and a hint of tartness. Certainly not your typical fruit beer, of course they arenít using the typical fruits eitherÖ Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly tart.
