look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance is a hazy straw color with a finger of head that lingers for some time and leaves nice lacing behind. The nose has light notes of hops and citrus. The flavor profile and body are light - much like a session IPA. However, unlike a session IPA, the ABV is quite high (although there is no trace of alcohol at all). The finish is nicely bitter.

Serving type: on-tap

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.
