Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
I.P.A. was developed in England around 1800; the extra strength in alcohol and hops helped preserve the beer on its long export journeys to India and beyond. The style has developed a following worldwide. Ours begins with smooth, malty creaminess and a big burst of dry-hop flavor and aroma from a variety of American hops. It finishes with a lingering yet pleasant bitterness. Is it Overboard? You decide.

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 type: on-tap

Poured from a bottle into a pint on the shores of Kailua.

A- cloudy gold. 2 fingers of coarse off-white head dissipates too quickly.

S- grapefruit. Some light herbal notes. Not the most forthcoming, but neither too closed.

T- nice malty sweetness. Grapefruit and astringent herbal notes come through. Not too bitter for a western ipa. Nice balance

M- medium bodied. Medium to high carbonation, which cleans up the bitterness nicely.

O- a solid ipa. Above average, but nothing amazing. I think Kona's "castaway" is the better ipa from the big island.

A solid IPA from a local brewery in Hawaii. Has a good hint of hops followed with a nice undertone of fruit. Not nearly as hoppy as many other other IPA's but has a very smooth finish. Can definitely see myself having a couple of these while sitting beach side.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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.

4.46/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

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.
