Pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, grapefruit citrus and a note of tart earthiness. In the taste, orange citrus hops and a dryness of earth. A small hop bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a semi dry earth and citrus hop in the aftertaste. Quite earthy and dry, offset against the citrus hops.

I love love love this beer. It's a good, flavorful IPA without being overly hoppy in a bad way. I do love very hoppy and bitter beers, but there's something very balanced and lovely about this beer. I think it might be the rosehips, which gives a nice citrus-sour-herb flavor, which pairs well with the hops.

complex ale. grainy spiciness and citrus characters, grapefruit. It does taste like an American pale but less hoppy. unique flavors, not sure if I've evr had a rose hip but i'm detecting something different. theres a certain dryness to this beer as well
