There's nothing not to like about this spicy little pale ale from the big island of Hawaii.

Just the facts:

Bottle temp at opening: 38 degrees.

Drinking temp: 38 degrees

Nose: Dandelions, prairie on a summer day.

Taste:  Full flavor. Powerful hops, and a hint of sweet fruit.

Rating: 5 bottles out of 6

It's a big, bold hoppy explosion that smooths out across the tongue, leaving just enough citrus aftertaste to make you want a little more.  The nose takes me back to a field I used to play in as a kid: a mixture of milkweed, dandelion and a hint of skunk.

I swear you can hear the singing crickets as you sit on a front porch swing sipping this mini-masterpiece.  Might also be just as at-home in front of a fireplace.  I intend to find out with a few more of these come winter.  This is a keeper!
