4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Drank from 22oz bottle poured into glass. Aroma- citrus hoppy notes. Wonderful aroma. Appearance- redish ruby color with light head. Appealing and different color. Taste- fantastic. Hoppy with floral notes. Can tell it would be a good standalone ipa but has a twist. Palate-sweet and sour guava tasting afteraste. Overall- very please. Enjoyed this special brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Medium orange, lightly hazy. Lovely perfumey hibiscus floral notes carry the nosf and palate. Biscuit malts provide support. The finish gives way to late bitterness, allowing the delicate florals to shine. A nuanced IPA, not a hopheads delight, and certainly not a bitter bomb, but a lovely brew nonetheless.

Bottle to glass. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is mostly floral/grassy hops. Flavor is mostly grassy and a mild bitter. Light in body. Leaves a funky aftertaste. Drinkable but not sure how I feel about it.

Hazy amber beer, good white head. Palate is light, dry and minerally crisp. Light airy malt. There is a nice tangy fruit sherbet zing here, it really tantalises the tongue! Hibiscus fruits balance nicely with mildly skunky hops. Little pine. Finishes soft and semi dry with more sherbet zing. Love the sherbet! Light and very refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this one on tap at The Local as a free pour from a nice bartender (just 2 oz.). Pours a golden orange with a bit of a pink hue, with a fluffy white head on top. Aroma is very floral, as expected, with hibiscus definitely there alongside some tropical fruits. Flavor is vegetal hops and a light hibiscus influence that makes this finish nicely clean. The hibiscus lingers on the palate and is rather refreshing. Light body and very easy drinking. Would go well on a hot summer day.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours translucent copper with a foamy white head. Aroma is very citrus/floral. Hint of caramel. Med body or better. Flavor starts somewhat earthy, moves on to spicy, then maybe some citrus. I can imagine Hibiscus - cause there is a perfumey/floral note. It’s dry, bitter and a real mouth grabber. All this at only 4.9%? Mirabile dictu!
