Poured into a pint glass. The color is half-way between straw and golden. The color is nice and clear. There is a half-inch white head on top.
The aroma has some nice pine and zesty hoppiness in the aroma. The hops remind me a little like what one might find in a hoppy pilsner.
This is tasty. There is a lot of great zesty hops intertwined with light malt flavor. This has a nice crisp, slightly bitter finish. This is really good!
This has a nice light to medium mouthfeel. This is very drinkable, I wouldn't mind having another!

I liked this and would have it again if someone else was buying.
The floral description was on the money, but I think they could have done a better job of balancing hop flavor with hop bitterness. In other words, though it was tasty, the finish/aftertaste lingered a little too long for my preference. I like a clean, quick finish in my IPAs.
I was OK with the maltiness, and the hop flavor was fine.

Poured into 10oz goblet. Poured a lightly hazy copper color with over1/4 inch of off-white head that quickly dissipated into a ring that held up fairly well and had OK lacing.
The aroma featured, yup you guessed it, floral hops with some pine in the background. There wasn't really a noticeable amount of malt showing up, nor any of the Rose hips used int the brewing of this beer. On the tongue, a very light malt flavor showed up, and there was a crisp hop taste. But again, I didn't pick up any Rose.
The body was that of an average IPA, perhaps a bit thinner than average really. Drinkability was OK, but not great. Overall, a decent, but not special, brew. Worth having for the tick, otherwise a pretty average brew.
