Enjoyed this yesterday at the brew-pub and today at Paia Flatbread on tap in a 10oz snifter.
This was on their chalkboard as a "Hawaiian style IPA".
Nose was straight up amazing. Very hoppy and delicious. Reminded me a lot of my at the moment favorite Bear Republic DIPA, Apex. Not at big and bold but just as delicious.
Poured with a minimal pinkie of head, which was a nice white finish. Upon first sip, lacing stayed more of less the entire pour.
Flavor was very good. Tons of hops and fruit. I could have drank this all day.
While I had another beer on the table, I had to keep coming back to this. Very good stab at an IPA that does not disappoint.

On tap at Maui Brewing Company in Lahaina, HI.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and slight tropical fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus and tropical flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is super drinkable with its nice fruity hop presence.

This was the highlight of the beer I was lucky enough to try at the Maui Brewing Co brewpub in Lahaina. It was an excellent example of the style, and was up there with my all time personal favorites in the well-trod American IPA category. I believe the ABV was around 7%, but I was unsure and left it blank. The pour was deep gold, the head sticky and creamy. The smell was sweet and tropical, with well defined resinous pine. The taste was where this beer truly shined, it had a huge hop punch, which was very well balanced with a fruity sweetness. An excellent example of the style, I hope you are lucky enough to try it while you are in paradise!
