A special beer for a special cause. The name comes from the sharks "Ampullae of Lorenzini", the shark's electro sensory organ used to detect changes in electric fields. This American Double IPA was brewed with blood orange, local citrus, and Maui cane sugar. The unique hop profile of Azacca, El Dorado, and Sorachi Ace lend big grapefruit, ripe mango and tropical aromas, followed by a clean, mildly sweet bitterness. At 7.6% abv and approximately 80 IBUs this is a deceptively drinkable Double IPA.

Foamy head that dissipates quickly with a light Amber appearance.
Nose is pure tropical fruit: lots of mango, guava, pineapple, and very minimal pine.

The fruit on the nose is what comes through in the taste at first. It is tropical fruit sweetness followed by a blood orange tartness that masks the ABV very well. It is well carbonated and crisp, with mellow pine coming in at the end.

Very light bodied, which is surprising considering the huge amount of flavor and decent ABV on this. This is dangerously drinkable and I could drink this all day.
Surprised by how much I loved this beer, can't wait to drink the others .

This beer is very good. I've lived in Hawaii for 2 years, and this is the first beer to impress me from all the beers I've tried from Hawaii breweries. Well done Maui brewing.

On tap at Maui Brewing Company in Kihei, HI.

Pours a clear dark orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with earth, citrus zest, and pine needle flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is quite earthy along with the citrus forward aspects I am getting.

Serving type: on tap.

Had on tap at the brew-pub yesterday. Poured into a 10oz snifter.
Described as a blood orange DIPA.
Nose was standard fare DIPA. Hoppy and fruity though I didn't get much of the blood orange.
Color was a deep dark orange, not at all what I was expecting but not in a bad way.
Head was thin but lacing was present throughout the entire pour.
Taste was hoppy and fruity but quickly faded which was a letdown. Hop forward and fruit and the end but a quick drop off.
Not a bad beer at all but given the fact that the other beer on the table, HI Standards, was amazing, maybe that lead to my disappointment.
Give it a try if you see it.

Serving glass: Poured from tap into Tulip.

Appearance: Clear golden amber with thin white head and slight lacing.

Smell: Grapefruit and toasted malt, light tropical fruit and pine.

Taste: Some light toasted and caramel malts but this is all about the hops, which reign supreme with loads of grapefruit and some mango and pine. Somewhat bitter finish, but more hoppy than bitter.

Feel: Moderate carbonation, medium to full creamy body, nice dry finish.

Drinkability: Very strong DIPA. Nice collaboration between my go to Maui brewery and one I have yet to try.
