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.

A deliciously bitter beer. Aroma was nice. Deep dank hops with not much else. Does it need anything else? Pour was a nice hazy and cloudy burnt orange with a one finger white head and plenty of swirling bubbles.Taste was intensely bitter. Strong citrus hops that bit the cheeks and throat. The rose hips added an even more bitter quality, almost like dandelion. Very nicely done beer with great carbonation.

Nice amber ale with a solid sheet of light tannish foam. Nose is dank - this is something I would expect from the likes of Lagunitas, not SN. This is onion, weed, body odor, and waaay deep in there a hint of orange concentrate. Not impressed. Flavor is quite bitter with some woody character and then some more onion - people describe the onion in some beers, and I rarely get it, but here itís just vile. Medium bodied with moderated carb. Iím not happy with this at all. Serving type: bottle 08-20-2012

Iím currently rating every SN brew Iíve ever had in one clean sweep. I grew up on the classic SN Pale having it around during high school, and since have watched SN grow into a national representation of incredible craft beer. Living 45 mins away is a treat for the random growler fill. Keep up the amazing work and thanks!

hazy gold beer with a tidy white head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Mild minerals. Orange hops with a mild marmalade vibe. Malt cream. Nice fruity floralness from the rosehips. Traces of lemon and floralness. Finishes semi dry. Hangs together well and is very drinkable.

SDalkoholic (2089) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle Beer Camp variety pack from BevMo: Appeared as a dark golden honey topped with a soapy fluffing of head. Aroma is similar the pale ale recipe except that there is more floral aromas of hops and a heavier presence of bread like malts. The flavor is somewhat bitter yet sweet with some syrupy malts that are balanced with some earthy hops.

Heathen (1444) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 27, 2013
THOUGHTS: Very nice and well-balanced IPA. Tons of flavor but not really as unexpected of flavors as the label claimed. Nearly perfect balance. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a truly beautiful, clear, light to medium amber with an average to large, slightly off-white head kept a thick sheet. The aroma had light to moderate caramel malt; moderate floral, perfumey, herbal and grassy hops; and resinous hops when warmer. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet and bitter with an average duration. There was caramel malt, floral, grassy and perfumey hops, and slight citrus hops. It really tasted quite herbal and plant like. The light to medium body was sort of creamy, but oily and then silky then dry with lightly fizzy carbonation and a dry and lightly metallic finish.

Not my favorite brew from this years box but worth the time to drink. The aroma was the best thing about the brew. The flowery hops were awesome to partake in

Bottle shared by drsilverworm. Pours a translucent copper with a white head of foam. Aroma is floral, imagine that, grassy, and herbal. Tastes fine, especially considering the age of the beer.

Amber with a pretty thick foam. Mild floral aroma. Nice bitterness with a balanced malt part. Fruity
