On tap at the Yard House in Waikiki.
A - Clear darker-golden amber body with a thin off-white head that receded and deposited a thin web of lacing around the rim of the glass.
S - Moderate hop character suggesting floral notes with some citrus fruit. Malt is sweet and caramely with a touch of toasted grains.
T - Citrus hops dominate the flavor with a touch of floral and perfumy notes. Hops are backed by a sweet caramel and grainy malt backbone.
M - Medium bodied wity a light syrupy texture, although a bit watery overall. Carbonation is moderate with a slight prickly sensation and subtle alcohol warmth on the palate.
D - While this is a very good IPA overall, it doesn't strike me as West Coast. However, it is well-balanced with a nice hop kick and lots of flavor.
Serving type: on-tap

Bought a bomber at Fallbrook liquor and had Nessy burger while I was there.
Nice pour into a tulip. Deep foggy gold color, creamy head.
Smell is mostly bready hops, with a tiny bit of citrus.
Taste is also dominated by hops, with a nice carbonated slick mouth feel.
Overall a decent ipa especially when fresh, but many other options out there.
I feel if they held back on the bready malt a bit it would be a better pour.
