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.

12 ounce bottle from Bier 30. Pours a cloudy bright copper color with a medium white head. A rich nose of citrus and rose petals. The flavor is rich hops with very floral and perfumy notes. Light citrus and bitterness. Decent, not my cuppa tea.

On tap. Clear golden orange with a fizzy white head. Nice floral hoppy citrus and grassy hops aroma and taste with candy notes and a lingering hops perfume on the back end. Good dry and lively palate. Nice crisp dry finish.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2012
12oz bottle from Archers. pours solid amber orange with a nice off white head on top. The aroma has faded unfortunately to light citrus hop notes. The flavor is juicy orange hops on a body that had potential but has faded with sometime, still solid though. it goes down smooth.

Pours medium to deep gold with a white pillowy head. Aroma is floral, herbal and caramel. Taste is bitter with light sweetening on the finish. Crisp and clean IPA, solid but not spectacular.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle. Poured a clear medium orange color. The head was a few fingers high and off white with good retention and lacing. Pine sap, flower blossom, white pepper, grapefruit zest, and a whiff of graham cracker in the nose. Light to medium bodied and dryish with moderate bitterness. Pine, herbal hop, and pale malt flavors.

mikesaum (711) - Newark, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Pours amber with an offwhite head, aroma isnít very strong actually, I get a hint of flowery and herbal hops, a bit of sweet malts, but aroma is lacking. Taste is better, but still not what I was wanting, has a nice hop bitterness that stays in check, definitely fresh tasting, good for some refreshment, nothin special but its good.

DialSquare (4238) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2012
12oz bottle from beer camp twelve pack. Gold pour with solid thin head and soapy stick. Aroma is herbal, floral, pine hops and caramel. Tastes are same with bitter floral, lemon, grass. Oily hop vibe. Seems like itís going to be a big harsh floral bitter bomb (and it sort of is) - but balances nice and is quite drinkable.

On tap. It looks like a typical IPA in appearance, with a goldish color and white head and lacing, but it has the freshest hop (and flower) aroma and taste Iíve ever tried. It is like drinking a hop picked just off the vine. The malt comes through enough in the taste, but this is definitely a hop-head beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(12oz bottle thanks to blutt59) clear medium gold, soapy white bubbles. Nose of cane sugar, agave, herbal bitterness, caramel. Taste of caramel, agave, light bitterness, nothing too interesting.
