22oz bottle shared into a PizzaPort nonic style taster glass
Notes taken on 02/01/14

A: Pale and hazy caramel amber color. Has some whimsical soft peach and pinkish tones. Light course sea foam white lid with hints of pink to it as well. Lower retention noted with some splotchy patches of lace left clinging to the glass.

S: Smells of citrus hops mixed with some wildflowers mostly. Not a particularly potent bouquet. There is some light pine and herbals with earthy grass as well. And a bit of underlying malt sweetness coming through. Touch of oven fresh bread even. A fair aroma overall with a more restrained approach to the Hibiscus it seems.

T: Tastes like a standard American Pale with some delicately infused Hibiscus. Subtle and flowery but not terribly perfume like. Some muddled hops of citrus fruit, pine, and earthiness. There is moderate bitterness to the beer and a lightly bready malt base with a dash of caramel sweetness to it. Well balanced with the alcohol kept in good demeanor. Interesting enough to be pretty good.

M: Smooth with a light spritz from the carb. Moderately filling with a touch of drying at the finish. Slight resinous linger on the palate. Pretty clean overall.

D: This was a nice restrained approach with the flower additions. Delicate and well balanced. Not overly used to the point of tasting like a potpourri basket.
The Mrs. is digging on this one for sure.
