This was on-tap at the Astros spring training facility in Kissimmee, FL. On a hot 90+ degree day where I literally turned red from sunburn, I couldn't have asked for a better beer. It was a good hoppy while being exceptionally refreshing and having a clean finish. I walked away very impressed. I really like the Kona offerings.

Not sure golden ales are supposed to be this hoppy, but it was too bitter for my taste.

Golden ales can be difficult to pull off. Kona did a good job though.
