Kona Big Wave Golden Ale

This 4.4% ABV golden ale is from the Kona Brewing Company of Kona, Hawaii (although now brewed on the mainland as they are part of the Craft Brew Alliance). I like the bottle design, and the glass on top is embossed with the shape of the Hawaiian Islands and the words "Liquid Aloha."

The beer pours a dark golden in color. It has a relatively short head of white foam that leaves patches of sticky lacing down the glass. The aroma is bright, fruity, tropical fruits, mango, passion fruit, over toasted malt. The taste follows the aromas, fruity, toasted, with a bit of muskiness. The beer drink easy, crisply carbonated, very refreshing. This is really good, I wish they sold it by the quart.
