This week's beers (4/10)
SANDBAR - SAISON (5.4% alc/vol)
Named after the sandbar at Kuliou’ou Beach Park, Sandbar Saison boasts aromas of whole clove, dried Valencia orange, and apple banana. Bright and effervescent, the palate is akin to lemon crunch cake with an earthy undertone that finishes dry.
ROOFTOP - PALE ALE (5.2% alc/vol)
This pale ale is in celebration of the love story of our Head Brewer and his wife, our Director of Operations. They used to share pale ale's on their rooftop and watch the summer sun set. Ripe mango and lilikoi on the nose, with juicy hop flavors on the palate, ending in an easy dry finish.
KETTLE RUN SERIES - RASPBERRY VANILLA CREAM (5.3% alc/vol)
This batch of Kettle Run features a heavy dose of Raspberry puree, milk sugar, and a touch of Madagascar vanilla bean. Upon first sip you’ll notice the raspberry off the bat but as the beer finishes, notes of vanilla dance about rounding out the palate. Think tart raspberry vanilla ice cream bars!
NANI YOUR BREWSNESS - HAZY IPA (6.7% alc/vol)
We channelled one of our favorite lady-attitude anthems by Salt N Peppa, along with the Hawaiian word "Nani" which means female beauty. This collaboration with Pink Boots Society - Oahu Chapter is one to remember! Hazy IPA that is dry-hopped with 22 pounds of the Pink Boots blend thanks to Yakima Chief, giving the beer an aroma of lychee, pineapple, and papaya. Nani Your Brewsness tastes like a juicy pineapple reminiscent of a tropical beverage that you can't stop drinking.
