Bottle poured into a NS bell tulip. Not really pink in color, more of a darker amber-fuscia color, though there was an inch or so of pink-white head on top; good retention and cottony dabs of lacing. In the nose, toasted grains and floral notes, the hibiscus wasn't as distinct as I've gotten in other beers brewed with the bloom. Taste was grassy and floral, some drying citrus pith, with a light and crisp bitterness, grainy malt base. Seemed like there might have been some wheat in the grain bill. Light-medium body, crisp and sessionable. Decent overall.

4 ounce pour directly at the brewery.

A pinkish body in the glass which is kinda reflected in tasting. Has a very dry tea like feel; flavor is strong citrus and tropical fruits, very refreshing. An enjoyable IPA for sure that is more floral and nuanced than your typical hop bomb.

A-Pours a dark pink! I think that looks really neat. Night Shift's Ever Weisse is probably the coolest looking beer I have ever seen. This one is also very cool. The body is a hearty pink with orange undertones. Ever the frothy head has a pink hue to it. Frothy lacing.

S-The hibiscus flowers are very noticeable. I even get a sort of hop-hibiscus watermelon scent which is unique. Floral and also sweet in the nose. Noticeable citrus hops as well.

T-The flavor brings forth sharp hibiscus notes. Then the bitter pine and grassiness from the hops sets in. I still get some watermelon. Very, very floral. Citrus hops. Crisp grain.

M-Pretty bitter. Quite bubbly. Crisp and sharp. Body is relatively light. The bubbles add an airy feel.

O/D-Very pretty. Flavor has its own unique intricacies. Night Shift is hellbent on making some crazy beers. They succeeded here in my book. I'm a sucker for wacky colored beer.
