4/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Looks like standard IPA fare into a tulip pint. Beautiful clear copper body with nice streams of bubbles. A frothy, creamy white head sits atop for ages. Nice lacing.

S - The Simcoe really takes the foreground, with C hops in the back, as well as a nice, sweet, malt. Super floral, and I hate saying that with a name like Flower Power. It is a nice smelling IPA, if a little overdone.

T - Not as overdone as the nose, and finishes very dry and light. Not very bitter at all. Mostly green hops up front, and a sweet, fruity malt. Almost tea-like bitterness. Everything is well integrated, and there's nothing off. Not the best IPA ever, but certainly nothing to scoff at.

M - Good, not great. A little too attenuated and crisp for my liking, however I can see where some would be really really into it.

D - Definitely on par with most quality IPA's. It's well-rounded enough to enjoy multiple bottles, though I only have one. *Edit* Holy cow this is 8%? Bumped up half a notch.

Notes: Ithaca Beer Co hasn't failed to impress me yet. Rated it all 4's because frankly, it's a "good" beer. Another thing... at 8%, isn't that a bit much for a standard AIPA?
