In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Tröegs Brewing Co. Crimson Pistil IPA

“The cranberry and raspberry notes from the hibiscus come out more in the flavor with lemon citrus and grassy behind it. It’s a well-balanced IPA with just enough bitterness to round out the malt. Spice beers routinely overdo it on the spice, but this one felt restrained, like they could have gone further but played it safe in a enjoyably balanced way.”
