Three Flowers IPA

Marin Brewery (Larkspur, CA)
"3 Flowers IPA is a straw-colored Rye IPA. The three flowers referred to are Citra, Cascade, and Chinook hops, which are cast into the brew liberally, and contribute a lovely citrusy, floral aroma and a firm yet balancing bitterness. Malted rye and flaked rye, gently added to the grist of this refreshing brew, bestow an engaging dry spiciness and luscious mouthfeel upon the imbiber."

Plenty of hop aroma. Sharp, somewhat bitter initial bite. Lots of citrus but the pine is certainly there too.Very floral, very earthy. Has a musty taste that is not unpleasant.
I'm a fan of rye beers. Good, very good.

6.6% ABV
