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.

On-tap at Night Shift Brewing in Everett, Massachusetts.

A- Striking lighter red body with a substantial one finger pink-hued head with great retention, sticky lacing. Not something I see from beers of any style unless its a fruit lambic.

S- Floral nose mixed in with some citrus and bready malt. Even a slight bit of tartness. Smells refreshing.

F- Falls back a little bit; some citrus and biscuits mixed in together. Balanced. Some raw onions. Floral finish is bitter, not too bitter but it seems to clash a bit with the other components of the beer.

M- Medium body, a bit thin but well carbonated and creamy. The hibiscus seems to be a sort of slightly off-flavour, but not enough to get in the way of my enjoyment.

O- Maybe I just don't like hibiscus that much, but I think its particular aspects interfered slightly with the base IPA, which already had some onion character to it.

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.

This was a visually appealing beer. Poured into a teku glass, the beer was a pink/orange color. There was a medium-sized white head with a little bit of lace.

A nice floral and citrus aroma. Sweet.

Grapefruit taste, some grassy hops. Sweet and flowery.

This beer was well-hopped. A very drinkable IPA, and pretty to look at, to boot.
