COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
3 Flowers IPA is a straw colored Rye IPA. The three flowers referred to are Citra, Cascade, and Chinook hops, which are cast into the brew liberally, and contribute a lovely citrusy, floral aroma and a firm yet balancing bitterness. Malted rye and flaked rye, gently added to the grist of this refreshing brew, bestow an engaging dry spiciness and luscious mouth feel upon the imbiber. Please feel free to have another.

A hazed golden orange pour with a white head. Nose is rather heavy on the bread and rye. Some floral, spicy, and citrus peel hops. The rye really comes out as it warms. The flavor is fairly sweet with a ton of rye flavor. There’s a light hop bitterness, some floral hops, a light citrus note, and perhaps a hint of spice.

Bomber from the brewpub. Pour champagne bubbly gold with a slight creamy white head. It’s forest flowers, rye spice and mild caramel for aroma. Med body at least. Flavor is floral and rye spice with enough caramel to support a rather large amount of hop. Hop burn builds. Not NW harsh, but very hoppy and pretty bitter. Like rye. A lot.

OK, I knew nothing of this beer before trying it and was wondering if it was going to be a floral mess. Boy was I wrong. Gold medal last year!??! Wow. OK, poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a pale gold body that exhibits a nice yet slight hop haze and supports an off white head of foam. The mild aroma is a little bit sweet and a little bit floral and really not much else beyond that. Smells good though. The flavor is nice, man this is pretty rich with firm floral hop bitterness, a bitter hop spiciness and then a touch of earthiness. Wow, terrific flavor and fully bitter hop forward from front to back but it offers up a touch of backbone to add wonderful depth and richness. Yes.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
On tap at City Beer, pours a hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma brings out loads of flowers / floral hops, with a subtle touch of rye. Flavour brings out the best of rye and floral hops, probably more pronounced towards the rye in end of the palate. Very well-rounded with a very thin malt backing. Great stuff.

Tap at Marin. Fantastic IPA. Light gold pour with a white spotty head. Light crisp body with a bunch of citrus hops and a hint of rye. I could drink this all day.

swoopjones (6211) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Botlle at GLBN IPA challenge 2012, lighter straw with hints of sunset com lor. Decent floral hop aroma. Sweet and grassy notes, flower petals. Sweet and floral bitterness take the headlines here

badlizard (5537) - Berkeley, California, USA - SEP 16, 2012
On tap. Clear bright yellow with a fizzy white head. Strong earthy hops aroma with notes of grass and pine. Earthy bitter soapy taste with the hops completely overshadowing the tastes of the rye.

joeneugs (3483) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 27, 2011
On draft at the brewpub. It pours a very clear yellow gold color with a nice white head. The aroma is an awesome combination of citrusy and earthy hops with a very clean, almost pilsner-like maltiness. The flavor is the same with a beautiful earthy dank bitterness and clean rye flavor. Great beer.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Phone rating. Draft at Marin. Bright golden color with an orange tinge. Vibrant, dank citrus and grapefruit in the aroma, with the lightest showing of rye. Medium to medium-full body; loads of juicy lemony and grapefruit citrus, beautifully done hop character, and a lightly toasty, spicy rye note. Modest acidity, medium levels of co2. Delicious. Lasting, bitter finish; a West Coast IPA with a touch of toasty rye.

Bottle from Blackwells. Orange and cloudy. Had this after some crazy good beers. Not a rye IPA fan. Easy drinking but something about it seems a bit off. Just ok
