Another treasure from Whole Foods Kailua. Copper with an eggshell white head that leave "rings" down the side of the glass. Nice scent, well balanced, Yes, it has plenty of the "Left Coast" hops you’d expect but those are nicely countered with some sweet caramel malts. Sweet with a lingering hop follow, good stuff!
