A: Pours a hazy orange to amber in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and peach + orange highlights. The beer has a two finger tall creamy beige head that slowly reduces to a medium sized medium thick patch, a thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer, and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of herbal hops with a light amount of floral hops.

T: Upfront there is a light amount of grainy malts with moderate to strong flavors of herbal hops with some lighter amounts of floral hops including rose hip and lavender. Light to moderate amounts of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp with a light amount of stickiness.

O: I found this beer to be enjoyable and I like the floral notes only I wish they were a little more pronounced and perhaps with a slight hint of sweetness. Easy to drink and definitely one I would have again.

Poured the 12 oz. into a Samuel Adams glass. 2012 Beer Camp release. (from notes) The body was bright apricot with a slight haze. The head left sheets of thin lacing.

The smell was organic and leafy. Floral. Nice.

The taste was interesting, unique. Bright bitterness and a creaminess. floral with minor maltiness.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied with a fine carbonation. This was my favorite from the Beer Camp release from 2012.
