I had high hopes for this, but the hibiscus flavor was overwhelming.

This beer poured out with decent looking red body and a thin white head. The smell of the beer has some malts and the littlest amount of hibiscus on the nose. The flavor was a bit watered down to me. The hibiscus was barely noticeable and the other flavors were the same way. The mouthfeel was light, I feel it should have been much thicker. Overall I see these odd notion brews gradually getting worse over time. The Belgian Chocolate stout was probably the best from a few years ago, but since then they just been on a downfall.

When i poured this beer it has a red copper body with 2"fizzy white head that vanishes quickly. The smell is kinda fruity no hops that i can detect. The taste is malty but not a lot of hops. The mouth feel is ok. Overall this is a ok beer. I might revisti this beer, if they make it again.

on-tap @ Pour Judgement in Newport, RI- $5 a pint. Never seen an Odd Notion on tap, so I had to get it.

A- Nice shimmering ruby red body, almost no head to speak of, tiny off-white bubbles form an outer ring, but that's about it.

S- Very sweet- floral, lilac (or hibiscus, I suppose). Some orange as well.

T- Sweet honeysuckle and lilac, building malts balance the flowers nicely. A smidge of twiggy earthiness, with some tea-like flavors as well.

M- Despite no head the carbonation was fine. Very quaffable. Sweetness is curtailed by a moderately dry and crisp finish. I enjoyed the uniqueness of it.

O- I was impressed- This one's either way better on tap or criminally underrated.. an enjoyable (if unconventional) ale.
