From a bottle, it has a golden color and gives you all that you would expect from a Belgian style.

Big Island Overboard IPA
Solid IPA that finishes clean. It feels more drinkable than the 6.9% alcohol would make you think.

Big Island Holy Humulus
Nice copper coloured body with a bright orange and bronze glow, all with a thick, five centimetre tall tan head on top. Aroma of grass and very resinous hops with a good deal of bitterness and some herbal and perfumey characteristics near the end. Medium-bodied; Proper balance of malt which is noticeable at first with some resinous and very grassy hops moving through and ending on more of a piney bite with the bitterness coming at the end. Aftertaste is smooth but bitter with hops, more hops and nothing but the hops - a good malt backbone, but no sugars or earth or anything too offsetting from the hops. Overall, a pretty good beer with a noticeable hop bite and a good malt balance throughout, just not enough room for any other complex flavours - this is solely about the hops. Nice to sample and if you like hops, worth room in your suitcase given there generally aren't too many local Hawaiian beers that you can bring home from the islands. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Safeway in Kapahului, O'ahu, Hawaii on 28-December-2016 for US$10,49 sampled at home in Washington across half the Pacific and the whole of the USA on 30-September-2017 after running a half marathon training for the USMC Marathon.

One of a kind. Imperial red caramel notes with rich cacao and sea salt brings it together, lushous. Treacle, slight brine and dark cocoa finish.

Big Island White Mountain Porter
Aromas of roasted coffee with fairly mild toasted coconut. Resin aromas from the hops. Color is nearly black with a small light brown head. Medium sweetness; fairly bitter from some combination of hops and roasted coffee. Texture is fairly creamy; medium to full bodied; average carbonation; medium to long finish. Overall I like the roasted coffee flavor and the light touch of coconut. The base porter is fairly simple however.

Big Island Fat Bastard's Demise
Deep brown, almost black and has that characteristic Scottish ale appearance. The head floats on the top of the glass. The aroma is heavy toffee and caramel and the flavor tastes like whiskey and finishes with very rich toffee. This beer is as rich with Scottish character as french cuisine is with butter!
