Enjoyed @ Prohibition Pig last weekend.

The body is the color of grapefruit with tinges of pink, hibiscus is discreet in the flavor among the citrusy grapefruit pulp, delicate and a little bit floral. Good, solid body that is quite refreshing. Very nice overall.

Growler 750ml. Beautiful hazy gold pour. Aroma is incredible with grapefruit rind, hibiscus and dank. Taste is nicely tart from citrus nicely balance by hop bitterness. I thought hibiscus added some bitterness too. This one is highly drinkable being the perfect balance betweentart and bitter for a blonde ale. I loved it even more than #1.
