The pour is a murky orange. I'm getting some of that hibiscus on the nose. On the taste, i'm picking up some grapefruit, pine, tangerine & a little strange aftertaste probably from the hibiscus. They did a good on masking the 8.2% abv. I came into this beer expecting more of a tropical type of Brut IPA. They went a little too hard on the hibiscus, this beer is making my stomach ache a bit. Cheers! B-

From the can, it pours a rose-tinted clear amber with a light head soon dispersing to a thin ring. Interesting scent in the nose. Taste is nice with hibiscus flavor (I guess) is pleasant. Alcohol hard to detect, so it is well done.

Pours. Nice amber color but no head or carbonation to speak of. Floral, juicy taste is nice on the front end but a harsh, medicinal finish kills this one for me.

this a beautifully colored beer. in light it looks like a pastel sunset. deep rose clarity. it’s also surprisingly tasty. the hibiscus was not an afterthought. it carries the alcohol without a citrus taste. which balances the sip to a delicate point. great concept i hope they keep this one.

Added picture you see
Bought a 6-pack cans Costco $6.89
Smell of citrus and flowers
Clear amber color
Medium mouthfell
Medium carbonation
Light citrus flavors, light bitterness finish, hides higher alcohol well
Overall an easy drinking beer. Only my second Brut IPA so don't think this is really my style, but worth a try if you do like this type.

Draft. Marriott Maui Airport. This is not brut, whatsoever. There is residual sugar. It’s enjoyable. Can not classify this as “brut.” If this much residual sugar yields the “American Brut” classification, then so be it. But I think that classification is crazy. Still enjoyable, and I would call this beer an American IPA. Carries the alcohol very well. Solid beer. Bad marketing.
