On tap at the brewery, Aloha! Aroma is nice, pretty hoppy, but not getting into ipa territory at all, great balance. Palate is light and sessionable, would love to take this down to the beach!

On tap at Maui Brewing. Poured honey yellow into a pint glass with ocean foam white head. Wonderful aroma of grapefruit and hops flow from the glass. Hop flavor up front followed by grapefruit and orange. Hops linger pleasantly in the mouth long after the first sip. Very enjoyable and refreshing ale.

Grassy finish and a very grassy aroma. Very traditional west coast style Pale. Not much lacing. Hardly any head. Not bad and I could make an afternoon and drinking this.

On tap at Urge in RB/Poway on April 28, 2011. They had 8 different brews from Maui that day. Smooth malty and bit of hops. A bit one sided in the roasty malt. A good, if not typicll, pale ale. Not my fave of their offerings that day.
