Pours a cloudy straw yellow, with average head. Lovely, attractive lace.

Nose is nicely floral hops. A solid and promising beginning.

Taste is delightful -- hoppy and floral with a tropical fruit bouquet. I get mango, pineapple, and citrus. There's a sharp and grainy wheat presence, too, but it's all carefully balanced and harmonious. A delicious ale!

Got this with the Craft Brew Alliance Explorer variety 12-pack. Pleasantly surprised. Refreshing and tasty, but nothing mind blowing. Really, I've yet to have anything amazing from Kona, but everything I have had has been surprisingly good. Maybe that's just because I don't expect anything crazy, but still. Beer I would easily stock up on to give out if I were hosting a party; especially to share with my non-craft fan friends.

Appearance: Cloudy, very light straw color, about the same shade as a Bud Light Lime. Quickly disappearing head, moderate lacing and carbonation.

Smell: Pine, wet grass, mildew, citrus hops.

Taste: Pine, wet grass, citrus and floral hops, caramel.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and creamy.

The Verdict: It’s okay. Nothing exciting, just a drinkable Wheat Pale Ale. I expected more coming from Kona- more flavor, more hops, more something.
