The upstart Caution Brewing Co's IPA features whole flower chrysanthemum and Chinese rock brown sugar and dry hopped with 3 separate kinds of hops.
Appearance - amber, some faint carbonation, little to no head or lacing.
Smell - very floral, must be the chrysanthemum, nice!
Taste - follows the nose, unique, satisfying!
Feel - a nice bitterness that lingers and isn't overpowering
Overall - a bit pricey, but you can only get it fresh from the source, as of now

Serving type: on-tap

This brewer says this is infused with "whole flower chrysanthemum" plus "Chinese rock brown sugar," whatever that is. Two unique ingredients in one beer. But it's quite drinkable if you're not thinking pedal-to-the-metal hop blast.

This beer really does have that unmistakeable nose and taste. It brought back childhood in an instant-- playing in the back yard in my mother's chrysanthemum plants with that smell of the leaves lingering in my brain for decades.

Fairly malty with a substantial body. Some sweetness. Not very bitter. In fact I wouldn't be so bold as to call this an IPA. It does have some hop aromatics but it's more of an herbal Pale Ale. Quite drinkable and definitely one to try at the brewery, as it's a good example of their off-kilter but friendly brews. On tap at the east Denver tasting room.
