Pouring from a 12 oz. can into a Willi Becher style glass, this beer pours out gold; not perfectly clear but nowhere near hazy. It forms a finger worth of eggshell colored crown that leaves lacing as it slowly recedes.

The smell is like an old school ipa; a lot more malt character. Caramel like sweet malts mixing with notes of pine.

The taste comes in with sweet, doughy bread along with notes of caramel, honey and pine. Once again, just classic and more of an old school feeling hoppy ale.

The mouthfeel has low bitterness, somewhat sticky but not cloying.

Overall, if you’re into that more classic hoppy ale or old school thing try this. It’s a solid brew.

Another one from Alex. From Hawaii. From America.

Coppery orange color, pretty clear, with a massive white rocky foam on top that leaves a good amount of spotty lacing.

Smells like a good ol classic pale ale. Citrus, pine, a little bit of orange rock candy.

Tastes the same. A little washed down though. Good balance of flavors.

Light feel to it. Soft carbonation, well balanced, but missing that bitter punch in the end.

A good standard pale ale. An easy drinker. This would be a regular APA if I lived in Hawaii. But I don't, so I'll probably just have it this one time.

Thanks again Whiz!

Thanks to Alex for this one!

Amber orange body and cloudy. Soapy white head, about a finger, that leaves some wet lace behind.
Pineapple in the aroma with some citrus and resin.
The taste is honeyed malts with pineapple, grapefruit juice and rind. Earthy and floral. Spicy hop finish.
Light mouth feel, good carbonation.

The name can make for fun euphemisms, but when it comes down to it this an excellent ale.

Very fruity front notes with a nice sweet smell.

Not the typical hoppy taste of a pale ale, more smooth and sweet.

Feel is nice front first sip till the last.

Overall I’m a fan, bummed it’s a one and done.
