Ithaca Flower Power
12 oz brown bottle
Best before September notched on the side of the label
Served in a 20 oz tulip glass

Pours a hazy burnt orange with a fluffy white head on top. Nice trails of sticky lace.

Citrus and pine nose with some sweet malts coming through.

A grainy and biscuit malt presence with a hoppy punch that showcases flavors such as oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruit. I'd also add that there is quite the juicy sweetness.

Yeah, good beer. Nice hoppy American IPA.

I thought this to be an exceptional east coast IPA. The mixture of hop aromas is a rare find in our local brews. I was pleasantly surprised with this one.

L: Nothing special. Gold/caramel appearance with low carbonation.

A: This is where this beer shines. Very strong citrous and floral aroma. Strong Centennial and Amarillo hop aroma. Hop heads will really enjoy the aroma of this beer.

T: Bitter but not overpoweringly so. The hops in this beer dominate the flavor but there is a hint of honey to offset the bitterness.

Many reviewers have mentioned this beer was better on draft. I will have to keep my out for this one on draft.
