On tap-Poured from a growler from Lewis Bros. Market in Horseheads, NY.
Appearance - Orange colored, lighter than a lot of other IPA's
Smell - A very nice pine smell.
Taste - This is a very enjoyable IPA. I get a lot of citrus and pines notes. I would say the taste is assertive and pleasant. Very drinkable IPA.
Mouthfeel - Medium body on the lower carbonation side.
Overall: I live 35 miles from the brewery I think this beer is a grand slam home run for Ithaca Beer Co. Probably their flagship beer and for good reason.
Serving type: growler

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.
