A: beige head covers the beer all the way through; there are lots of particles in suspension, possibly from the rose hips but hard to identify, definitely not yeast that was kicked up.

S: piney and floral, smells like spring.

T: light bittneress, mostly flavor and aroma hops, some balancing in a traditional english IPA.

M: creamy, then dry; relatively low carbonation throughout the beer after the head is formed.

O: a classic English IPA except for what was in suspension.

This is another great beer camp brew. I love this beer and hope to get some more, but unlike some of the other beer camps, this is one that is in a very crowed field. It's still good.

This ale has a great floral aroma and taste, as advertised. It looks great in the glass. It's fairly sessionable. This, like the other beer camps is highly recommended - go out and get a bunch!
