This is a 5.5% ABV beer brewed with rye and hibiscus flowers. The collaborators are Bear Republic, Faction, Mad River, Magnolia, and Maui brewing companies.
The beer pours a dark brown with very dark amber that flashes purple as it is being poured. There is nearly an inch of very light tan foamy head. The aroma is toasted spicy rye, with light fruity and floral notes. The taste follows the aromas, floating floral and fruity over a very solid base of roasted, toasted rye. The finish is moderately bitter and quite dry. The beer drinks with a refreshing carbonation, but also smooth. This is the most quintessentially Sierra Nevada beer of the pack, despite the input of the collaborators on this one.
