Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

This unique take on the traditional IPA style pairs the bold and intense aromas of whole-cone hop "flowers" with aromatic natural rose hips and petals for complex aromas and unexpected flavors.

Pours deep amber with a large head.
Nose shows floral, hoppy and grapefruit notes along with caramel underneath. Big plain hoppy notes.
Some green, floral hops as flavours too but not particularly interesting. Also some clean malt. Finishes with a slightly metallic bitterness.
Carbonation is a bit full on.

Reviewed from notes July 2012.

"Copper/light brown color with a clear appearance. I don't like the aroma of the hops in this beer. Taste is too bitter, again for Sierra Nevada!! I haven't had an i.p.a. from these guys that I hadn't though was too bitter and harsh - torpedo, hoptimum.... I guess the "wet hopped harvest was pretty good. Medium body and carbonation. hoppiness gets more "palatable" as you drink but still too harsh.
