Got this bottle in a trade and sat on it a couple weeks so i cant be sure how fresh this is ...
A looks pretty carbonated. A bit murky but nice golden yellow color. Not much lacing
S not as floral as i was expecting given the name, i get lots of citrus; specifically oranges. Also getting some breadiness. Overall tho the smell is a bit muted and im wondering if this bottle has seen better days.
T quite nice. Again lots of orange juice and some breadiness. More floral notes coming thru in the taste than i was getting in the nose.
M very crisp. Smoothed out nicely as it warmed. It's refreshing.
O a solid, refreshing beer that i could drink all summer tho id like to try this again from a known fresh bottle. This one kinda reminded me of a hopped up fff gumballhead

4.6/5 rDev +8.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
12 oz. bottle poured into tulip glass.
A: Mostly translucent gold coloring with a very minimal head.
S: Some light pine and citrus hop aromas take over the glass pretty much immediately.
T: Pine and citrus are immediate, followed by a sticky hop finish that has you going right back in for another sip. The hop characteristics permeate every bit of the beer.
M: Crisp, clean finish with mild carbonation. Not overly heavy at all, despite a solid ABV (7.5%).
O: Flower Power is among my favorite beers, IPA or otherwise. It inhabits its own unique place in the East Coast IPA range (not being overly malty or hoppy) and would contend with the best from the opposite coast as well. Best of all, it's readily available in the Northeast. Drink as much as you can.
