Pours deep gold into a shaker. Off-white head with little retention recedes to skim surface. Very sweet hibiscus and wax lips aromas. Sharp with cucumber and hay upfront turning to cherry lip balm before the dry, bitter lasting flowery finish.

This beer is slightly hoppy, slightly bitter, and cool finish with high cucumber content. Imagine drinking a magic hat #9 with a cucumber soaked aftertaste. Not awful but not worth a second drink. Beer Salad anyone??

12oz bottle from Spirits Cross Roads. Poured a clear burnt orange body with a large bubble foamy head. Aroma was interesting and reminded me of walking into a Bath and Body Works, crips and clean with the cucumber coming through big time along with light hibiscus. Medium body with assertive carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor isn’t quite as crisp as the aroma with a dry malt foretaste followed by hibiscus and juicy cucumber and a dry grassy hop finish. Interesting.
