Pours a semi-cloudy rich gold color with intimidating lacing and a strong, consistent film atop. The pint glass is well-coated. I can feel the power already.
Flowery and citrus aromas with a spicy kick to it.
This brew gives you plenty and everything blends together so nicely. Grapefruit and piney hop notes. A sweet candy-like finish. Real hoppy profile.
A well developed feel, with a medium carbonation; I think the perfect range for an IPA. It carries weight but somehow has a light feel to it.
This is just a solid IPA that I would enjoy again for sure. I now have gotten down with the growler Flower Power to the bottle and yeah they were both fantastic. I like what Ithaca did here with a complex IPA offering.

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.
