Refreshing IPA, a little too much floral for me but an easy drinker.

Steady, but small head. Leaves decent swaths of lace on the glass. There's a pinkish hue when pouring the beer, but in the glass it looks like a regular amber.

From afar, I smelled a sweetness that reminded me of cherry blossoms. When I drew the glass up close, it becomes a regular pale ale to the nose with floral hop and a dry malty base.

The beer is incredibly dry. This enhances the peppery hop bite. There's a long bitter aftertaste. The body is neutral but the carbonation is quite elevated.

The worst floral incarnation of any hoppy beer I've ever had. Pours a pink tinted ruby hue with light cream pink shade of head leaves fine speckled lace.

Aroma has floral, citrus notes, hop bitterness and vegetal qualities.

Flavor a muddled mess of floral notes and citrus hopped alpha acids, very little malts lingering bitter flowers, with crazy muddled hops even though the label reveals at least three hop varieties in name in print.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied even carbonation flows just fine lingering bitterness rolls between the hibiscus notes and three C hops without much malts to balance the lingering bitterness of hops and flowers.

Overall, I see this beer is retired, but maybe they'll still make it for breast cancer awareness or as they called it "Beer for Boobs"!!!

Poured into a pint glass from a bomber. Reviewed 12/20/12.

Color was orangish with a definite pink hue. Two finger white head.
Aroma was floral hops, definitely some extra tropical flowers from the hibiscus.
Flavor was citrus with a bit of sourness from the hibiscus. Interesting combination.
Medium body.

Overall, an enjoyable beer that was very drinkable.
