Brewbound: Kona Brewing Company Releases Gold Cliff IPA

Gold Cliff IPA features real pineapple, along with bright, tropical fruit aromas of Mosaic and Citra hops and a hint of smooth caramel malt.

Kona Brewing Company today announces the latest addition to its Aloha Series with Gold Cliff IPA, a bold, juicy beer that highlights the adventurous spirit of the Hawaiian Islands. The new beer expands Kona’s ever-growing offerings to include a big, hoppy IPA with a Kona twist– juicy, tropical pineapple, an homage to the southern tip of Lanai, where the island’s first pineapple field overlooks cobalt blue waters. The 7.2% ABV Gold Cliff IPA pairs caramel & acidulated malts with easygoing aromas of Mosaic, Chinook, Topaz, and Citra hops for a cool embrace of Pacific paradise.
