Pours a rosy, orangy color with off white bubbly head that held well and faded into a thick collar, heavy wisps, great legs, and good lacing. Aroma is sweet/floral hibiscus, faint bready malt sweetness, floral and slightly earthy hops. Taste began heavy on the hibiscus, with that dual hop flavor behind that. I really enjoy this, so I guess I'm a big fan of hibiscus. Good body, low-med carb, and low hop bitterness. Not particularly great for an IPA, but immensely enjoyable.

22 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 9/4/2014. Pours slightly hazy reddish copper color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, berries, pine, herbal, grass, flowers, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops, hibiscus spicing, and moderate malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, berries, pine, herbal, grass, flowers, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapfruit, lemon/orange zest, pineapple, berries, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, balance, and robustness of citrus/pine hops, hibiscus spicing, and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a very nice hibiscus spiced IPA. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops, hibiscus spicing, and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
