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.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2013
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 Iíve had in a while.

(bottle - 12 oz) Copper pour with a frothy white head. Way too much carbonation. Mild hop aroma. Rather floral as the name would imply. Flavor is bitter at the start then dries out in the middle. Definitely much more floral than citrusy, and a pity because I prefer the citrus. Too dry and bitter.

harrymel (1502) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2013
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!

A: Golden Straw Hue/Amber Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head Ring, Some Lacing S: Bready, Floral T: Grainy, Biscuits, Mild Floral M: Average Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Bitter, Mildly Drying Overall, its good if you like bready/grainy IPAs but other than the bitterness and mild floral nose.taste, its way too much graininess.

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.

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.
