Our brewers wanted to make a beer that went down easy after a day out on the water. Big Wave Golden Ale is just the ticket. Big Wave is a lighter bodied golden ale with a tropical hop aroma and flavor a smooth, easy drinking refreshing ale. The use of caramel malt contributes to the golden hue of this beer and our special blend of hops provides bright quenching finish. 10.3

This golden ale is underrated! Excellent palate, flavorful, with citrus hints in the aftertaste. I would say it's the best coming out from Hawaii. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FROTHINGSLOSH (7300) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2017
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a vibrant golden color with an enormous foamy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet and yeasty with orange, grapefruit and a hint of pepper. The flavor was dryish and bitter with grapefruit, orange, a bit of yeast and perfume. Long citric finish. Medium body. Solid.

PotjeBier (2928) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2017
From tap @ Beer Temple, a few sips, but Im sure I had this back in 1998 when I spent a vacation on the Big Island. Pale clear yellow color. White head. Aromas of grain, light sweet, fruit, grassy. Flavor is light malty sweet, grainish. Light bodied. Clean but nothing too exciting.

Mindwarp (234) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Pours a light gold with a small white head. Aroma is of malt and a hint of tropical fruit. The taste is of malt and real watery. Overall this is a beer for the summer and not for someone looking for a lot of flavor.

From tap at In De Wildeman, Amsterdam. Aroma is malts and mild hops, touch of ripe fruits, with some caramel and slightly buttery notes. Flavour is above moderate sweet. Body is light, feels a bit weak. Overall unimpressive, average Golden.
