My first beer from Maui Brewing. I was expecting something light, a tropical attempt at a beer style I feel is best when robust. This was a pleasant surprise--bold, juicy, substantial. Can't wait to try other beers by this brewer. Impressive!

Purchased at Pearl Harbor Navy Exchange June 2017. Tasted this date. Look: Orange hazy color Smell:Mango and citrus. Pleasing! Taste: Full and satisfying. Goes down smooth! Feel: Slightly carbonated and tingly. Nice! I'm an DIPA guy and this DIPA definitely makes my top 10 list! Would definitely try again if I could find it on the Mainland!

Not extraordinary, but overall a solid IPA and one of the better beers I’ve had in Hawaii. Straw colored with a nice foamy white head, aroma of fresh grass, soil, orange juice, pine, some lemon, a bit wheaty, with a bit of cracker malt, some grapefruit. Also perhaps faint tropicals in the background such as pineapple, but I prefer these notes to be stronger. Taste follows accordingly, hop forward but not as much as I would like, balanced with bready malt but also some grainy hints in the background that I don’t care for. Finish is a dull grapefruit bitterness that lingers a surprising amount. I fond it pretty enjoyable and refreshing.
