Blah...I appreciate the fact that my friend brought this back from Hawaii, but I canít really think of much to say about it because it is just so boring.

The one interesting thing about the beer is the deep red color, it all goes down hill from there. Biscuity, "fat tire" flavor mixed with something cardboardy, a little metallic bite (Iíd assume itís from rye) and a bit of "generic hops."

I hate to waste beer, but I really canít bring myself to finish this so Iím going to click "Add Rating" and pour this out. If I find another bottle Iíll try it again in case this was a bad bottle, but at this point Iím not overly impressed...

Nice blend of malt and bitter hop aromas. Cloudy amber red colour with poor head. Odd flavour, mainly caramel malts. Med body and carbonation ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jonas (5592) - Garching b. MŁnchen, GERMANY - SEP 27, 2013
Bottle. Enjoyed in Volcano Village, very fitting :-) Spicy, citric, light tart aroma. Murky red, offwhite lace. Light caramel, apples and wood in the base, light spicy and aromatic. counterpoint. Yeasty earthy edges in the aftertaste. Relatively light sparkly body. Not on fire, but nice enough.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 7, 2013
An average red with a nice toasted caramel malt backbone and a bit of hop bitterness. Nothing much else going on in this bright amber pour. The nose is well rounded and has a moderately toasted caramel and grainy malt. Overall, a good amber.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle from The Liquor Collection, Honolulu, HI
Hazy amber color, with small head. There is a clear aroma of butter. Caramel flavor, with light sweetness, and again the butter; the bitterness is rather low.
Iím not put off by the diacetyl, but this beer is seriously problematic.

ben4321 (3759) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 5, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2012
Location: Draft at the Yard House - Honolulu, 7/5/12

Aroma: Nose is rather faint, a little caramel, some light bread and fruit notes
Appearance: It pours a dark reddish-amber color with a small head and minimal lace
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet, and fairly heavy malty, with a rather light bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, and it is just a touch watery, with an average feel to it
Overall Impression: I wasnít particularly excited by this one. This is certainly not something to run out for again. I guess I didnít expect it to be much better after trying their Pale Ale, but it was still pretty boring...

thetmaxx (732) - West Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Poured from the bottle to red solo cup on a back patio overlooking the ocean in Maui. Aroma is sweet malt, flavor is similar but does have some noticeable hop character. Palate is smooth and clean great for the warm Hawaii afternoons!

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 12, 2012
Single bottle purchased from a small wine store on Kauai Island on 04/09/2012. Colour: For sure red, darker though. Medium head that stays stable and decently thick. Nose: Really fresh bread. Cooked malt and barley - but not roasted. Soggy cereal. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, light sour. Very light. Soft traces of caramel, malt, bread pudding. Nothing stands out.
