6 pack picked up at the brewery in Hilo. This is an easy drinking pale ale that I think drinks much better than Kona's Fire Rock. Fresh, has a subtle dankness coming through.

Figured moving to Hawai'i, means I have to try out the locals. While there are good ones, there are also plenty of average to meh ones. Unfortunately, this one was meh. Not sure what the canning date was on this one was, because like so many other breweries here, there are no canning dates on anything. It may have been old, so I'd like to try it on tap. This one was way too malty for me.
