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.

3.9/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Had this on 2012-08-08 in Columbia, PA

A - Clear gold with a 3-finger white head and good lacing.

S - Vegetal/dank hop floral, touch of bread and maybe a hint of fruit and perfumy sweetness. Not real strong smelling.

T - Light malt at first then a nice splash of citrus with some flowery spice and tea. Dries nicely and finishes with some tea, quite a bit of lingering citrus zest (and rose petal?) bitterness; barely cut with some fruit and a touch of caramel malt sweetness.

M - Light-medium body and medium carbonation. Very smooth and creamy initially but there's some prickle on the finish.

O - While not very aromatic, the feel and taste are quite nice. I like the flavors that linger long on my tongue. Plenty going on for a lowish ABV% IPA. Glad to have had it.
