Had this at the brewpub on the big island.
Poured a light copper color with a thin white head of tightly knit bubbles. Left some decent lacing on the glass.
Not much of a hop smell. I must be crazy or stuffed up.
This was all hops up front. It started off with a kind of piney/grapefruit sort of bite, but that morpheused into a pint of potpouri. It became all floral.
This stood out from other ipas I have tried. It was good, but not fantastic. I would stick with the porters,
Serving type: on-tap

Great Summer IPA! First off I love this brewery and I have tried, and do try every style in their line up whenever possible, since 2011. I really enjoyed this IPA.
The assertive flavors and taste went well, with my steak dinner and complemented the meal. The aroma (I couldn't stop take inhaling deeply, ah so good) from the glass was very refreshing and the taste wasn't overtly bitter. Tasted crisp and clean with lots of flavor.
I am definitely going to have a few more this summer! As a beginner into IPA's , Kona Brewery was a great place to start. Now, I will be more willing to try another IPA brand soon.
