COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Really nothing special. The nose is herbal, the flavor is as well. It is a pleasant beer but one is enough.

12oz into a 14oz sierra nevada tulip. Aroma is apparently floral, with exchanges of the rose, hopfully strong whole cones. and mild grass and pine. Theres alot going on in the aroma sense, almost perfume for a beer. I enjoy the complexity. Taste is hoppy, piney, bittering, and then sweet in the aftertaste. Color is a dark orange, bronzed tan, and metallic brown. That sweetess is stil lingering in after 1/2 thre brew, with mainly a citurs flow, apples and grapefruit, some pineapple in there too, and then the bitterness jacks you in the tongue. Different and nice.

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.

mjg74 (2459) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Bottle from Windy City. Some slightly pungent hops in the nose. There is another scent that I can’t place. Quite carbonated. Dry, sharp hop character. Quick finish. Decent IPA. dough,

Nice hop aroma. Golden orange appearance. Taste is hops throughout with a floral note (not just a cute name!). Very nice flavor.

Resinous hop aroma. Floral for sure. Orange rind, pepper,grapefruit and back end pine. Red gold. White ring. Initial sweetness that become fruity bitter. AveragE iPa with an above average aroma.

thicksuds (386) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Definitely tasting the floral aspect from this one, another solid IPA from SN, what they do best, light and crisp and loaded with floral hops, slightly bitter, and slight citrus flavor as well. Comes as advertised, solid offering from the 2012 mix pack, starts out well for me.

drowland (5953) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 8, 2012
8/8/12. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. It would be a clear light amber/orange pour, but under the light there’s definitely particulates floating about. Floral and earthy aroma with plenty of hop bitterness as well as citrus. Bitter hop flavor, slightly sweet, with biscuits and caramel, and it lingers floral and dry. Not bad.

arkurzynski (1394) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Deep amber-copper color with white head. Only a slightly perfume-like, mostly citrus hop aroma. Pretty sweet overall. Flavor is a semi-astringent citrus bitterness, light caramel backbone in the middle, and finishing with a citrus to pine flavor. Solid.

Drake (7940) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2012
12 ounce bottle from the Beer Camp sampler, from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear amber color wirth a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Intensely herbal hop aroma, spicy hops and a faint floral finish. The taste is caramel malts with a bitter herbal and minty hop finish. Medium bodied. Interesting but not really my thing.
