Kona Brewing Co. Hanalei Island IPA

Kona Brewing Co. Hanalei Island IPA, 4.5% ABV with 40 IBUs is brewed in Kona Hawaii with Pale, 2 Row Premium, Carmel-120 malts, Azacca, Galaxy hops, Tropical Passionfruit, Orange, and Guava. Hanalei Island IPA pours a clear golden color with a one and a half finger white head that give tropical fruit aromas of passionfruit, guava, and some light orange. Taste of Hanalei Island IPA is a little similar to its nose with tropical fruits, guava, passionfruit and a little faint orange with a slight bitter hoppy note come through on the back of the tongue that does carry into the finish where the tropical fruit flavors fade into a light hoppy aftertaste with a light mouthfeel. Kona Brewing Co. Hanalei Island IPA is more tropical fruit than traditional IPA. I think that Kona Brewing Co. Hanalei Island IPA is an A-, the hoppy notes only chime in towards the back of the mouth and in the finish and aftertaste with drops it just slightly, and with that said this IPA is one beer I’d recommend trying. Please enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
