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.

Poured the 12 oz. into a Samuel Adams glass. 2012 Beer Camp release. (from notes) The body was bright apricot with a slight haze. The head left sheets of thin lacing.

The smell was organic and leafy. Floral. Nice.

The taste was interesting, unique. Bright bitterness and a creaminess. floral with minor maltiness.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied with a fine carbonation. This was my favorite from the Beer Camp release from 2012.

A- Golden copper body with a large white head that dissipates leaving some lace.

A- Flowery, piney, and citrus hops dominate with a sweet malt. Light spiciness.

T- Sweet and spicy, but somewhat lacking and dry in body in style with west coast IPAs. Bitterness throughout, but a somewhat unpleasant bitter aftertaste.

M- Medium-light body. The carbonation and the light malt dryness is somewhat unpleasant.

D- Pretty good in aroma, but I'm not fond of the west coast malt style of IPAs.
