look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pink/ruby red color is unique and very attractive. Half a finger of head on the pour and wasn't really present while drinking. Above average active carbonation for the style.

Smell: Airy flowers and rounded spices pull the drinker in. There is a creamy, buttery malt backbone which really compliments the airy flowers well. Peppercorns and some earthy tobacco round it out on the back end.

Taste: Refreshing flowery front. Spices with accents of pepper and light cinnamon warm up after the initial hit on the front. Creamy buttery tones pick up on the body and really dance on the palate. Touch of sugary sweetness on the back end hits the palate and lingers long after drinking.

Mouthfeel: There's a lot going on here, bright sugars, airy flowers, and creamy malts all run into each other but sort themselves out in a decent fashion. Carbonation is light which really allows the Hibiscus to shine.

Overall: A very enjoyable unique offering from Revolution. The spiced tones are subtle and merely an accessory so don't let that scare you off. Creamy and sugary flavors are well received. This is a winner.
