Pours a clear, bright, lighter copper golden color with a white head. A few asymetrical laces of suds are noted around the edge of the glass. The nose is characterized primarily of malt. Toffee, some notes of apricot, and bits of alcohol all comprise the aromas. The mouthfeel is medium- to full-bodied, smooth and wet with just a hint of carbonation. A bit of an alcohol burn is noted. Not much going on in the flavor outside of toasty maltiness and some alcohol bitterness. Not my cup-o-tea.
ADDENDUM: I've been informed by another frequent Flower Power-consuming BA that the beer is usually not a malt bomb as I have described. He suspects I've gotten ahold of some old bottles. It is January 31st now and the notch on the enjoy by portion of the label is between the January and the February. So he might have a point. I'd like to try this again fresh.

This is an excellent beer. Strong and drinkable IPA with a lot of lingering hop taste. It is a bittersweet bomb of goodness.
At the front end is good fresh hop taste. Great aroma once the bottle is cracked. The title does not lie, you are getting the heavy floral hop-stravaganza with this beer. This is an IPA made with care and the flavor is fresh . . . almost no extra taste, just delicious if you like tasty IPAs.
Works well with pizza and the beach. Highly recommended.

This is hands down a top 5 best IPA out there. The citrus notes after a quite potent bite from the hops is a perfect blend of happiness. It is a little pricey, but the juice is absolutely worth the squeeze. I have had twonkegs of this delicious beer over the last two years, and it is quite simply the best out there.
