New Kona Hanalei IPA to launch 17 June!



Next week Cave Direct will host Tiki parties all over the UK to celebrate the launch of Kona's new Hanalei IPA - a hoppy session beer brewed with passion fruit, guava and orange.

The beer was only launched in America this year and is coming fresh to our shores in cold containers to keep the sessioan IPA's tropical flavours intact. It's a light, hop-forward beer with lots of fruit on the aroma, a delicious juicy sweetness of the body and a clean, assertive bitterness on the end.

Cave customers and the public will be able to try the beer for the first time at several different pubs in London, Manchester and Bristol while enjoying a selection of Hawaiian food and music. In London the Colonel Fawcett in Camden will have a Hawaiian grill on the go, with lots of Kona bottles and draught; in Bristol the Golden Guinea will have a tiki party in their beer garden; while Cane and Grain in Manchester will have a tiki party with DJs and more American cuisine. All the sites will be handing out free tasters of Hanalei so everyone gets to try it.

Kona's flagship beer, Big Wave, is one of the UK's fastest growing beer brands and Hanalei IPA is a fantastic addition to the range, complementing that golden ale as well as Kona's delicious Longboard lager.
