Maui Brewing Hop Kine
Finally someone else is playing at the same game as Jack’s Abby. Aroma is largely vague citrus and floral with a few candied darker dank notes. Pilsner seediness is also present. The flavor follows brings in bigger citrus notes. Lager yeast character is average, some spiciness, DMS level is acceptable. Finish is crisp bitter and refreshing.

Maui Brewing Big Swell IPA
Can as a gift, likely Beautiful Beers but hey, free beer isn’t likely to get me to conjecture too much. Light to mid-gold, with a quickly dissipating off-white head. Mango and orange peel on the gentle aroma. Massively bitter taste. At first it feels far too bitter but I get used to it fairly quickly. Long resinous bitter finish. Hard citrus and almond in the aftertaste. Pretty special.

Maui Brewing Hop Kine
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Cloudy blond color, compact head. This beer combines crisp malt flavor with pungent fruity hops, I’m thinking of Citra mostly, dry but not weak, a bit dank in the final, fresh and refreshing.
Excellent.

Maui Brewing Bikini Blonde Lager
Hawaiian pale lager loosely situated in the ’Münchener Helles’ style, from a can bought at De Caigny in Essen. Medium thick, lightly lacing, egg-white, moussy head on top of a warm yellowish golden coloured beer ’clouded’ with a haze of tiny yeast bits throughout. Aroma of sweetbread, breakfast cereals, damp cloth, field flowers (buttercups), freshly cut grass, white bread dough, green apple peel. Fairly neutral onset, no esters as expected from a lager, bit minerally, quickly shifting to malt sweetness, grainy and a tad bready, no metallic effects, softish carbo and smooth, even slightly creamy body; well-dosed floral hop bitterishness in the finish, soft and gentle with a grassy accent; malt sweetness prevails, though, as defines this particular classic lager style. In all: nothing unpleasant here, simple and straightforward but quenching and feeling ’genuine’, with a balance of malt sweetness and soft floral hoppiness that equals that of the classic Bavarian Münchener Helles examples.

Maui Brewing Double Overhead IPA
On tap @ Toronado Seattle. Pours hazy medium golden with thick creamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet light caramel malt; floral fruity hops on the back with notes of mango and passionfruit. Taste is assertive medium caramel malt; hops are dank, lightly earthy, substantial floral undertones with light citrus notes throughout. Clean finish with faint lingering bitterness. Not quite as good as Big Swell, but solid IIPA.

Maui Brewing Hop Kine
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a big pine forward hop. For being a lager that was eye opening. Flavor is no less hoppy then the aroma. Lots of hop bitterness with some honeysuckle and melon hop fruitiness. A decent dry lager malt is here to clean away things and gets you ready for the next sip. Probably the most hop forward of these IPL’s I’ve had. Pretty solid.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Smells like an IPA, citrus, pine, and some grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes much like a lager, lingering flavors of citrus and floral tones.

Bit disappointed really, the great Pineapple aroma on opening the cam indicated much more, but it felt syrupy and the pineapple gave it a dry citrus tartness. Also possibly winter isn’t a great time to try this.

Maui Brewing Black Rock Lager
Draft. Pours a moderate, light beige head, with minimal lacing, over a clear, dark brown (SRM 25) body.....nose is roasted malts, with cocoa, chocolate, light coffee, slight hop soice, balance to the malts.......taste is mildly sweet with heavy roasted malts, with cocoa, chocolate, hints of coffee, mild hop spice, finishing with moderate hop bitterness, and slight roasted bitterness, balanced......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, moderate carbonation. This meets the Schwartzbier style quite nicely. It is clean, light and refreshing. Rating here to style, above to enjoyment. BJCP 8/3/16/4/8

Maui Brewing Hop Kine
Clear golden color with a foamy cream colored head. Scent of green pine cones, fresh cut grass and Honey Nut Cheerios. Has the left coast hop profile with more pine than citrus peel, some underlying sweetness in the middle with a nice bitter aftertaste, crisp. A light body, a bit thin but overall still a tasty beer that works well on the hot days in Hawaii. The "Big Swell" IPA is my favorite from this brewery.

From a 355ml can. Looks cheap and yet expensive. Pours dark brown to black with a thin biege head. Aroma of light roasted malts. Flavors is again of roasted malts, cacao, light coconut. But very bland. Quite flat in taste, and somewhat of a dirty flavor. Somewhat lacking some substance. One time ok, not twice.

Can pour into nonic pint glass. Aroma is mild fruity esters, pineapple, wheat, with mild yeast. Appearance is hazy yellow with nice sparkle, finger-width fizzy white head with poor retention fading to ring and trace lacing. Taste is mild pineapple and fruity sweet dominant with late yeasty tartness. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, average to soft carbonation and tart finish. Overall, a light, refreshing beer without a lot of complexity or boldness.
