COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We take our IPA with all of its citrus hop aroma and add a few more plants, namely cedar and lavender for a flowery aroma with the same clean finish.

Bottle @ the Cuvee de Castleton release. This beer almost smelled like air freshener or potpourri. Flavor was definitely floral but nice for a change with ipas.

Growler from the brewery. Pours a cloudy, dark orange color topped by a small, bubbly beige colored head that leaves some spots of lacing behind. The aroma is very floral with lavender, heather, and roses showing strong with a little bit of citrus hops. The flavor isn’t as floral as the nose shows, but the heather and lavender really blend well the citrus and pine hops. The toffee malt sweetens things up and the cedar wood add a touch of peppery spices on the back end. Medium plus in body with nice carbonation that leads to a long, floral, and bitter finish. This is a nice different tak eon the base beer, and one I would like to try again.

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 12, 2009
Growler courtesy dchmela. Pours a ruddy amber with some slight lacing. I really enjoyed the nose, but found the flowers comes across as rough in the flavor. Nose is very floral, lavender, pine, cedar all pop off a nice caramel backdrop. Herbal, caramel flavor, candy sweetness in the middle, big piney hops with a somewhat bracingly bitter finish. Medium-to-light carbonation, nice body, dry somewhat astringent finish.

PhillyBeer2112 (2528) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Growler courtesy dchmela. Holy smokes what a floral nose! Big lavender and general floweriness, with a little spicy hop, sweet grass and dandelion wine thrown in. Somewhat honeyed malts. Floral and grassy herbaceous flavors. Nice big bitter finish, a touch peppery.

JaBier (4956) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Growler sample at Muckfest 2009 Day 2. Opaque orange color with no head. Whole lotta flower influence in the aroma with some clove and ginger. Cinnamon spice flavor up front with a touch of hop on the finish.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2009
Growler shared by goldtwins. Deep amber pour with a thin white head. The aroma is great. Lots of bright floral aromatics. Heavy on wood, dried herbs, lavender, lemon and roses. Lots of bitter orange peel behind that as well as a light pine and grapefruit hoppiness. The flavour is awesome. Sweet but not cloying with a lot of lemon peel, pine, grapefruit and loads of floral character. The unusual floral notes (lavender especially) are very well integrated with the citrusy hops and soft sweet malts. This is one of those beers that I could smell for hours. Awesome stuff... thanks again Larry.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Pours a hazt amber orange with a bit of off white head. The nose is big time flower, but I get some cedar as well. The cedar is nice. The flavor has more cedar than anything. Tasty. Full body with nice carbonation. Not like anything I’ve ever had.

notalush (4910) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Funky-looking growler shared by goldtwins - hazy dark copper - sudsy lace - earthy hop, grapefruit, and pine in the nose at first, followed by a complex mixture of wildflowers and dried herbs - full-bodied - the flavor is of a straightforward, tasty, dry ipa up front - this is followed by an explosion of added complexities - tangerine, rosemary, lavender, rosewater - a vast array of hard to place spices - a lot of floral character that works really well with the dry, bitter hops - ends warming - this is fantastic.
