-dee red-amber tap pour with a very thin foam cap. The aroma is lightly floral The flavor is a tad tart and a little sweet with hibiscus and some lemon. The mouthfeel is not dry at all this would be an easy drinking quaff on a hot humid day.

Had a tap sample from Revolution in Chicago. Light, almost to the point of being watery, but definitely refreshing. Smooth, little to no bite or bitterness. Hibiscus taste is not pronounced, it tastes more fruity than anything to me.

Burgundy color on the poor pretty thick head good smell not much lacing pretty good little different I'd say it's so so from a fruity beer standpoint not one of my favorite but still I would be willing to try it again

Well I'm not much one for Fruity beers, this ale is totally refreshing without overpowering the ale with hibiscus.
Like a porter or Stout in the fall and winter, this is a refreshing summer change-of-pace.

12 oz can in Ohio.
Hazy reddish copper body with a good head.
A nice toasted grain base with a clear hibiscus note. Misleading tart aroma.
Medium+ body with soft, medium carbonation.

Look is transparent watered down cranberry red. Served with 1 finger of light pink head.

Aroma is floral and maybe cherry.

Taste follows nose with a little bit of tartness and an odd aftertaste. Kind of off putting to be honest.

Feel is light and crisp i just can't get past this aftertaste. It's reminiscent of when someone puts on too much perfume and you can almost taste it.

Overall not a bad beer I'm just wondering if the hibiscus isn't too much here....
