2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sample on draft at Coronado.
Was a lovely rose color and had a nice floral smell. Unfortunately the Hibiscus gave it a odd almost potpurri type flavor that was definitely not my cup of tea.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Color was a light brown hue with some tint of red while a thin fizzy head died out quickly. Aroma is bold with hops that suggest citrus fruit juice and flesh as well as a pungent whiff of sweet onion, but I’m not able to pick up any scents of the hibiscus flower though. However, in the drink I do find a strange earthy flavor that confuses me as fruity and at the same time tastes like wood with hints of sourness and bitter hops. Not that appetizing and reminded of a hybrid cross between an IPA and a minor tasting of Flemish sour ale.
