Thanks to GFunk720 for this brew.
12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass (with a name like Flower Power what else would you use?)
Pours a light golden amber with a four finger bright white head. Great head retention with abundant lacing . A bold floral aroma accented with citrus and pine. Initially my tastebuds were flooded with grapefruit, mangoes, and bit of peach followed by piney hop bitterness which transitions to sweet malt with a touch of banana and then finishes with piney hop bitterness. Pleasant mouthfeel. Fairly medium bodied with a heavy malt backbone, more reminiscent of a DIPA than a pale ale. Plenty of carbonation, creamy smooth brew. This brew definitely lives up to its reputation. Very enjoyable and complex.

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.
