Good news! I don't see anything official on their website yet, but I just got an email response from Kona Brewing - I had submitted a message through their site months ago when I first found out they pulled the seasonals from the mainland.

They're bringing them back! They say the first seasonal will be the Koko Brown, supposed to be available in January 2016, with the rest to follow. So they'll still only be seasonal, but at least they'll be back.

We just got back from a trip to Kauai and it was disappointing that we only found one place that had the Koko Brown. Particularly silly when Lost Coast's Downtown Brown was everywhere. Hopefully Kona's going to get it together now.

The Tiki on the label of this can of Liliko'i Kepolo caught my eye while browsing at a local liquor store, and I couldn't resist picking up a six-pack to share with my cow-orkers at our weekly "Beer-thirty" Friday get-together. It's a "Belgian-style white ale with spices and passionfruit added." Surprisingly good, with exotic, well-balanced flavors. The passionfruit adds a little sweetness without being too cloying, and it really complements the hoppy, wheaty flavor of the ale. There's a touch of coriander as well, along with some other spices I couldn't identify. It was like a tropical cocktail in a can!

Sounds yummy...if only...I don't wanna be negative, but why-oh-why can designers not go any further than the first google page under "Tiki", and have to replicate and proliferate the awful "Part City" Tiki design in its infinite variations !!?

I thought the quality of the label left something to be desired as well, bigbro, but the quality of the product inside the can won me over.
