Maui Big Swell IPA ....

Tonight I will have a Big Swell IPA from Maui Brewing Company.  6.8 % ABV is listed on the twelve ounce can.  The web site shows 50 IBUs.

This beer poured with a small, bone colored head.  The beer is very clear, and a bright golden yellow in color.  I am getting more floral, with just a little citrus, in the aroma.  Maybe a little caramel or brown sugar.  Medium bodied.  Malty, some pine bitterness but not a real sharp pine.  Floral.  Dry finish.  There is a vegetal/herbal quality towards the end that sticks around with a little bitterness for the aftertaste.
