This unique take on the traditional IPA style pairs the bold and intense aromas of whole-cone hop "flowers" with aromatic natural rose hips and petals for complex aromas and unexpected flavors.

It has good flavor and decent balance. The floral hop character dominates though there is a fainter malt presence. This is solid and worth trying. It’s different from some of the other SN IPA’s.

Pours hazy amber with thin white head. Strong floral hop aroma. Very nice hop flavor with lively mouthfeel and a clean finish. One of the best IPAs I’ve had in a while.

Ibrew2or3 (8109) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Poured up on tap at Taste of Tops with clear gold body and lasting white head. The aroma offers up spicy hops, citrus flavored marsh mellows with a thin ribbon of sweet malts around the edges. The taste has a pleasing spicy hoppiness and rolling into biter citrus hops and a touch of sweet malts. Into the finish and after taste an earthy hop note is noticed too. Tasty IPA

Clear orange with sudsy off-white head. Lacing is pretty heavy. Aroma is citrusy and floral over toast and caramel malt. Floral tasting as well, with substantial bitterness. Medium bodied and dry. Definitely outside of the norm; good stuff.

A - Pours a clear golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel malts with floral, pine, grassy, and a bit of tropical hops. T - Starts off with some sweet caramel malts and some floral and light grapefruit hops with some bitterness. Through the middle, more floral hops come through with some pine and grassy hops with some more bitterness and some biscuity and bready malts. The finish is a mix of floral and piney hops with some bitterness and some sweet caramel malts. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a lightly dry and bitter finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice floral IPA profile with good bitterness and balance throughout.

DalzAle (2020) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Bottle. Medium tan pour, frothy lasting 1/4 inch head and a fresh/floral hops and passion fruit aroma. Flavor starts with a good balance malt base, light white fruits, fresh juicy hops and some pineapple sweetness on the finish. Another solid beer from the beer camp box, hope they consider making this a regular offering.
