A - Extremely thick, almost opaque light orange brew; almost looks pulpy. Thin head (<1 finger) of white foam with short retention and little lacing.
S - Floral, tropical fruit, and citrus notes. Some breaded malt sneaks in, as well. A light, sweet smelling beer.
T - Similar to the nose: a lovely mix of hops. The citrus is more subdued than perhaps any IPA I've ever had, but that doesn't make it less hoppy. The malts thankfully take a back seat, but it's a well-balanced IPA.
M - Sweetness all around, hop oils lingering, medium body. Slightly dry, but that just leaves you asking for more.
O - This is an excellent change of pace IPA. It reminds me of Jai Alai, in a way. I could definitely drink this every day.

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.
