Nice clean IPA, with all aspects from hop notes, bitterness, drinkabolity. Medium weight and highly recommended when tasting the beers of hawaii.

12oz can with the old 70s shape and style aluminum

Full bodied and slightly syrupy with a sweet and tropical smell. The taste is plenty of sweet malt, dank hops, and some drying alcohol.

If you want an IPA with "tropical" hop flavor, this is the best I've found. They must be sourcing some local-grown hops, because this thing is fresh, fresh, fresh. Peach, dank, vegetal goodness

On tap at Maui Brewing in Kihei. Nice looking slightly hazy honey gold color with white head leaving a bit of lacing. Decent hop bite with reasonable bitterness, quite good.

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!
