In a nutshell: A light and smooth Hawaiian Golden Ale from Kona Brewing.
The lowdown: Big Wave is a lighter bodied golden ale with a tropical hop aroma and flavour. Smooth, easy drinking and refreshing it's an ale brewed to slip down easily after a hard day in the Hawaiian surf. Well, just drink it and dream of the tropics.
Style - Blonde & Golden Ale ABV 4.4% - Moderate Strength
Hawaii's own brewery has grown quite a bit since their early days in the 1990s. But they're still headquartered where they started in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island.
Their three flagship beers, Longboard, Big Wave and Fire Rock are the top selling beers in the islands and are exported to twenty six countries around the world. They also brew a selection of seasonals and special editions, some of which find their way outside of the islands.
