Notes: Just like your dad says as he stops off the plane for the first time on the big island - Hello-Ha! This beer will make you feel like you are there with him as well, with huge amounts of Pineapple, Passion Fruit, Pink Guava, and Orange complementing this kettle sour. So throw on some socks and sandals, an umbrella hat, and your best Lei, and let this beer take you to the tropics!

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 8/22/2019. Pours very hazy reddish/pinkish orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light pink head with poor retention, that reduces to nothing pretty quickly. Minimal lacing on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tart/tangy pineapple, passion fruit, pink guava, papaya, fruit skin/seed, orange juice, lemon, lime, citrus peel/zest, peach, pear, mango, melon, apricot, red/green apple, white grape/wine, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread, light peppercorn/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of pineapple, passion fruit, pink guava, orange, fruity/acidic yeast, and pale/wheat malt notes; with big strength. Taste of huge tart/tangy pineapple, passion fruit, pink guava, papaya, fruit skin/seed, orange juice, lemon, lime, citrus peel/zest, peach, pear, mango, melon, apricot, red/green apple, white grape/wine, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread, light peppercorn/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness, fruit tang, and light spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy pineapple, passion fruit, pink guava, papaya, fruit skin/seed, orange juice, lemon, lime, citrus peel/zest, peach, pear, mango, melon, apricot, red/green apple, white grape/wine, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, white bread, light peppercorn/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of pineapple, passion fruit, pink guava, orange, fruity/acidic yeast, and pale/wheat malt flavors; with a fantastic malt/tartness and tangy fruit balance; with no puckering/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp finishing. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering tartness, tangy fruit, and carbonation. Medium-plus carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy, and fairly acidic/tangy/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol for 5.5%. Overall this is a fantastic fruited sour. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of pineapple, passion fruit, pink guava, orange, fruity/acidic yeast, and pale/wheat malt flavors; very smooth, refreshing, and fairly crisp to drink with the mellowly acidic/tangy/tannic/drying finish. Nicely soft feel, and mellowly lactic. Fantastic balance of super juicy/jammy fruit and lacto complexity; with a nice pale/wheat malt backbone against acidity. Minimal residual sweetness with crisp acidic/tangy dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and outstanding style example as expected of the brewery.
