12 oz bottle from a local boardwalk hangout. Pretty refreshing on a hot day. Enjoyable flavor, sweet finish. BroSpud (2283) - , Massachusetts, USA - AUG 3, 2009
12oz bottle. Nothing special this. A tad too sweet up front with a somewhat skunky after taste. It’s drinkable but barely. Ceebs25 (503) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2009
12 oz bottle while on vacation in SC. Pretty decent smelling with some pretty solid notes of caramel malts, pale malts, florals, and some milder fruits. Pour of small-medium standard white head, not alot of retention, medium-light body, and brown-orange in color. Palate is nice, well balanced, though bitter notes are a bit inconsistent through out. Fruitier flavors than expected, and a certain uniqueness to this one that is refreshing. More tropical citrus fruits, mild fruits, mixed grains, light herbs and spice, and some caramel. Not too bad here. I’ve liked what I’ve seen from Kona so far. Christian (13930) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2009
Golden with a lasting white head. Aroma of malt, fruity hops and toast. Sweet malty flavour with buiscuit notes. Fruity hop flavour but lacking in bitterness. bigguns22 (806) - Maryland, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Look if you like hops you might get let down a little but if you are just finding a likeing for hops good smart. Poors small head ,small nose ok beer if its hot and if you need refreshment and flavor this will get it done .amber in color, clear mild hops.

amber pour little to no head, not well balance at all (to malty sweet). i do like the hops bill. Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2009
A golden-brown beer with no head. Aroma was crispy hops & sweet. Taste was sweet malt with not much hops to back it up. Uninspiring. phobos1031 (87) - Paradise, Nevada, USA - JUL 14, 2009
12oz. bottle. pours amber with a frothy big head...that goes away quickly. nothing special by any stretch of the imagination, but more drinkable then i thought it would be. MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2009
I bought this beer just to acquire another state (Hawaii) and really didn’t care if was good or not. However, it was a right choice. The head was frothy as opposed to foamy, tan, and two fingers deep. Falling away to just a thin layer, underneath was an orange/brown body giving off an aroma equally divided beltween hops and malt. Taste was mainly the malt with undernotes of hop. Mouthfeel was decent and the finish belied more malt sweetness on top of the hops. WVHouseofBeer (1108) - West Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2009
Poured a deep amber color with a small head that stayed throughout. Light grassy aroma with good flavors of toffee and hops. Not anything special, but this is definitely a solid APA.
