Arrived a clear light orange, decent lacing.
Smells piney, some floral hops.
Big initial burst of pine, then some malt, floral hops, and even sort of a nutty flavor in the finish.
Smooth crisp mouthfeel.
This was solidly done, very flavorful and I was pretty impressed, I'll have to try some more Kona.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a clear tangerine, half finger of head, spotty lacing
Smell is a ton of bright orange, lemon, grapefruit, mango a little pineapple, maybe a little strawberry with a hint pine and caramel. Really bright and citrusy smelling.
Tastes is more of the same, grapefruit, orange, lemon, pineapple, citrus peel, bittering pine, bitter grapefruit, finishes with a light and I mean light sweet malt bite
Mouthfeel is on the lighter side, medium carbonation light drying but still rather refreshing
Well now, this is exactly the kind of beer I would want if I was on a beach or something! Really refreshing, really, really easy drinking, almost a little to easy. Very tasty, give it a shot if fruity ipas are your thing.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of earthy malt, citrus hops, slight sweet malt, and slight floral notes. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of earthy malt, citrus hops, hops, hint of sweet malt, and some floral notes. Overall, good appearance, and blend, but the strong earthiness is odd for an IPA.
