Had on tap at the CBC brewpub poured into a pint glass. This is their collaboration with Maui Brewing.

Pours ruby red in color with 1-1.5 fingers worth of a white head which doesn't stay for long. Smell is of floral notes, some orange citrus, and light hops. Tastes is very similar. The hibiscus comes through and is not over powering. I also get some bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is what I would expect for an IPA.

Overall, this is a refreshing sessionable beer that is perfect for a summer day.

Misc.: Collaboration with Maui; Had on Jan. 21, 2013

Poured an amber hazy color with one finger of white head when I got it. Above average lacing with good retention.

Smelled citrus hops - hibiscus and berry, floral hops, rye hops and iced tea.

Tasted much better than the smell. Got grapefruit, lemon, orange rind, hibiscus and floral hops.

Light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Refreshing finish.

Really enjoyed this beer. Smooth, refreshing and tasty.

My Stone rep told me about this brew. Seemed kind of gimmicky, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Pours a clear pink with a bright white, 2 finger thick head. Smells beautifully floral (imagine that). The taste is unique and quite delicious, you get more of the earthy/bitter from the petals of the hibiscus vice the sweet nectar, and compliments the hop character perfectly. It has a clean and dry finish. Probably my favorite aspect of this beer is the fact that it is only 4.9% alcohol yet is an extremely floavorful IPA. This is a great beer to spend a lazy day by the pool drinking.
