If you put two descriptors together, the power of description is really pretty high if you ask me. Fresh and fruity. Big and dank. How about [region] plus [style], too, like Belgian Sour. About as powerful.
Just thinking about these dark beers I'm having in Hawaii. A dark red Belgian (that's three!) Southern Cross from Hawai'i Nui, the chocolate Imperial red known as Red Sea of Cacao from Big Island Brewhaus, and a regular old Porter from Lanikai called Pillbox. These are awesome. Light but thick and full of taste.
To the point they almost deserve their own two-word descriptor. Hawaiian darks are actually not as thick and strong and ridiculous as many of the double stouts. These three beers, at least, paint the picture of a medium ground between pale ales and stouts -- beers with thickness and malt and roasty toasty chocolate flavors, but without the syrupy alcohol thickness that sometimes makes double stouts difficult.
San Diego Pale Ales
Welp. I guess Hawaiian Imperial Reds isn't going to make this list unless I'm not thinking of a ton of 'owned' styles and regions right now.
