Hanalei Island IPA
Kona Brewing sent me a bottle of their Hanalei Island IPA, so duh I'm gonna drink it! This is a new beer to the continental USA for roughly a year, an IPA brewed with passionfruit, orange and guava. Bottled Nov15'17. Drink in Jan2018. 4.5% alcohol.
Very pleasant, fruity, citrus aroma. Super fruity flavors too, with orange sticking out and passionfruit taking a little spin. On the sweet side to start but there is a great bitter balance. A little thin but super refreshing. Simple easy drinker. In a world of awesome IPAs, even with the Hawaiian fruity twist, well, you know...
