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

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a pint glass. Had a reddish color and a very cloudy consistency. Some sediment. There was a foamy, off white, somewhat long-lasting head. So-so lacing.

S: A fruity and sweet aroma of strawberries, hops, malt, a floral quality, and citrus fruit.

T: Tasted of a small amount of malt (mostly in the finish), a tinge of citrus fruit (lemon, in particular), a lot of strawberries (a dominant force), some of the floral quality (the advertised hibiscus), and a mild hops presence. An interesting flavor. Most of the flavor is loaded up front, but it manages to be sweet and zesty. Pretty tasty.

F: A fair amount of carbonation with a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A light and likable beer. Worth a try.

Pinkish white foam, a faint shade of cotton candy, big and openly knit head not long for this world, any lacing slides off the glass with ease. Murky pink to ruby red hued liquid, great deal of visible effervescence, fair amount of particulate adds to the opacity. Somewhat floral nose, strawberry shortcake, whipped cream, dried grapefruit pulp, not particularly giving, that an undercurrent of metallic earth and fallen dried leaves. Close to full-bodied and the carbonation not as strong as expected or desired. Same core here of strawberry, pressed flowers and white citrus but, boy, is it bitter and dry. Pretty much sucks the moisture right out of your mouth, comes as labeled. That said, not astringent, just bitter. Here its more woodsy, however, there’s a lack of clarity to the elements, feels like it’s in a vise. This style of beer certainly has its place as an arrow in the quiver but not resonating with me and I’m primarily a wine guy. (Canned 7/29/19)

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 7/29/2019. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy deep ruby red/orange/pink color 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light pink head with goof retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas and flavors of big juicy/tart/tangy strawberries, cranberry, hibiscus, fruit skin/seeds, tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew, watermelon, red apple, guava, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, mint, tea, peppercorn, pine, cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of strawberry, hibiscus, citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops, and moderate pale malt notes; with big strength. Taste of big juicy/tart/tangy strawberries, cranberry, hibiscus, fruit skin/seeds, tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew, watermelon, red apple, guava, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, mint, tea, peppercorn, pine, cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness; and berry/hibiscus tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of juicy/tart/tangy strawberries, cranberry, hibiscus, fruit skin/seeds, tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew, watermelon, red apple, guava, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, mint, tea, peppercorn, pine, cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of strawberry, hibiscus, citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness and tart/tangy fruit/hibiscus balance; with minimal puckering/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness, tang, tartness, and carbonation. Medium-plus carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth and moderately bready/grainy/sticky/resinous/rindy/acidic/tangy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 7%. Overall this is an excellent fruited brut IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of strawberry, hibiscus, citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth and fairly crisp/clean/refreshing to drink with the modestly bitter/resinous/acidic/tangy/drying finish. Not overly bitter/tart. Feels like El Dorado, Citra, Mosaic. Super juicy/jammy strawberry, hibiscus, hops; some dank/earthy notes; with a nice clean pale malt backbone. Minimal residual sweetness with crisp dryness. A very enjoyable offering, and well made style example. Feels mostly like a fruit beer, but very impressive either way.
