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.

12oz bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

A - It is amber with golden highlights. Three fingers of rocky, off white head stick to the sides of the glass.

S - I get some citrus, mainly fresh grapefruit. There is a solid malt presence, as well. I expected a bouquet of flowers.

T - I get an iron and skunk taste. There is also a lot of malt.

M - Medium

O - It just has a weird off taste to it.

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.
