Poured on draft at Morimoto's in Maui

A: Golden yellow with 2 finger white head. Moderate lacing. Steady stream of small bubbles rising the entire time.

S: Prominent citrus aromas including grapefruit, pineapple, lemon. Hints of pine.

T: Grapefruit. Bitter hops. A little bit of sweet malts. Nice balance between sweet and bitter. Alcohol content is nicely hidden and sneaks up on you.

M: Medium body and drinks with a nice crispness. Effervescent bubbles throughout. Slight dry finish.

O: Very nice DIPA. Perhaps my favorite Maui Brewing beer.

Bought a growler from the brewpub. At the brewery, we tried everything available and this was definitely in the top 3 (with CocoNut Porter and Red Cock DoppelBock). I like that the beer names include the beer style, it makes it easier to choose.

This is a pretty good DIPA, similar to the sweeter varieties but also includes a strong acidy grapefruit component. The alcohol is kind of easy to detect but it's really delicious anyway. I found this to be stronger in flavor and aroma than Dreadnaught or Ruination (classical standards), maybe it's closer to Hopslam or Stone 10th (new standards for me).
