Lunar Amulet perfume for the 2-18-15 New Moon: Tank 7 Tribute

I usually make the lunar amulet perfumes on each full moon, and as this time approached a couple weeks ago I began looking around for inspiration. And this time my midwestern-ess just couldn't resist making a perfume tribute to my favorite ale.
This opens with pink peppercorns, coriander, and cardamom in a bed of citrus. A smooth floral base rises through the citrus steadily over time, the thick hops tempered with sweet chamomile and osmanthus. The dry down has just the slightest note of hay soaked in mandarin orange peels.
