Aroma is subtlety hoppy. Taste is light crisp and refreshing with a slight, hoppy bite to finish.

12 ounce can from Hayduke. Opaque orange brown with a big 4 finger beige head. Sticky lacing. This beer brings toffee, crackers, tart tropical fruit that is almost unripe, and fairly big sourness.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light off-white head; medium amber color, with a slightly cloudy appearance.
Mildly sweet; slightly bready flavors; hops are also pretty subdued.
Pretty thin body; short finish , slightly sweet and bready.
Overall a pretty thin beer, though at least there is some balance between the malt and hops.

Can from Food Pantry Waikiki 191214. Very malty beer this one. Red inged with a lie lying head and not really all that much aroma or flavour.

"not deserving of a WBC bronze, but not bad. more malty than hoppy, so i was left wanting more hops in the taste and aroma, but the carmal malt flavors are quite nice."

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 12 oz. can. Semi -clear amber with a reddish hue and a huge light tan head, for sure over carbonated. Not sure what to make about this one, as it is my third can from the same 6 pack, and they have all been about the same, with this last can being the least offensive so far (perhaps I am getting used to it?) Nose is somewhat malty, a hint of butter. Taste again has that butterscotch hint, so leaning towards the sweeter end. Oily, slick texture with an abrupt finish. In the Islands, so thought Iíd give it a try.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Dark amber. Aroma has a fair bit of diacetyl, something I didnít notice on tap at the brewery. Taste is pretty buttery as well, maybe a bit fruity but really this is a butterfest. On tap the rating would have been significantly higher, as the beer was moderately bitter and balanced - and most importantly clean.
