Orange colored body with thick, foamy off-white head. Rapid carbonation through the appearance of the pint glass. Aroma contains notes of passion fruit, with scents of orange citris and grapefruit. Flavor contains a caramel malt center, with notes of orange, mango and some mild spice at the finish. Aftertaste leaves a large amount of pineapple flavors on the palate. Big and bold on the bitterness, this is a great IPA.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into wine glass.
Appearance: Cloudy orange with large white head and nice lacing.
Smell: Grapefruit, orange, pine, tropical notes and some spiciness. Good West Coast aroma.
Taste: A cornucopia of hop flavors. Tart grapefruit, juicy orange, and tropical fruits override the base malts. Spicy and piney finish with some lingering grapefruit.
Feel: Medium body with moderate carbonation. Dripping with hop oils. Dry, refreshing finish.
Overall: A stellar IPA and the best Hawaii beer I have had.

A pint at Humpy's in Kailua-Kona, and on special all-day at that.
This beer appears a clear pale golden amber hue, with one finger of foamy, puffy white head, which settles at due pace, leaving a very sparse array of pebbled curling sheet lace around the glass.
It smells somewhat strongly of bitter citrus rind, mild pine branch, understated bready caramel malt, and soft, warm toffee. The taste is pleasantly sweet caramelized malt, moderated pine/citrus hops, and a mild, inoffensive booze warming.
The bubbles are average in their bearing, the body medium weight, and mostly smooth, with a wee bit of hop interference. It finishes quite hoppy and bitter, amongst an overshadowed, but not beaten, lingering toffee sweetness.
A decent, seemingly malt-forward IPA, sweet upfront, with a slow, but surely growing bitter hop offset. Agreeable feature pint fare, and as such, I wish I had room for more.

Nicely carbonated with finger width head. Fruity passion fruit overtones made me ask if it was infused with anything. It was not. Bitter taste nicely highlighted by the fruitiness first and last. Went well with the baja fresh fish taco. and left my palate clean and ready for more

Poured on tap at the brewpub into a sampler glass.
Clean and very clear body. Thin off cream white head presented. Body color lends to bright and dark orange.
Great solid hop aroma, real inviting notes of soft tropical fruit and juicy quality. Not mich malt and virtually no sweetness.
Palate is very tangy. Orange fruit, soft fleshy grapefruit and some mellow sweet malt dough but small and with a husky grain quality. Not much aftertaste that lingers but repeated sips bring it back. Mouthfeel is soft bodied but also seems a little grainy unlike its flavor.
Overall its a very enjoyable ipa, great flagship beer for sure or at least should be.

Unusual IPA but unusual in a good way. Fruity IPAs can work well (eg 21st Amendment) and this IPA was mega fruity. Fruit hint to yeast might just be a byproduct of brewing in Hawaii, everything is alive and growing and sorty jungly, and if so I like what they did to adapt. Definite pineapple hint in the flavor. Attention was paid to giving this a finishing hop bite. Big Island Brewhaus is an obscure little place but worth the stop for the beer, I wish them well.
