I don't want to crap on your Golden Shower, since that's a whole different section of the internet, but there's a lot of really strong flavors layered on really delicate flavors. Cardamom is hardcore, corriander, not, hibiscus gentle, turbinado not. Aromatic bold, pilsen malt not.

If you start backwords (like with a specific flavor and spice arrangement in mind) and work your way to a malt and flavor arrangement, you might come to a different conclusion.

Turbinado adds this odd rummy, boozy, butter rum thing. Cardamom is minty, earthy and bizarre. Cardamom plus corriander might come across as a curry flavor. That could be interesting with the peppery spices from the yeast.

I'd put the honey in sooner than the end of primary to maintain fermentation rather than restarting it. But given all the other flavours you're aiming to include, I doubt it will come through very strong.

Just curious did you end up brewing this beer? How'd it turn out?
