Enjoy the clover honey hue and tropical nose. Simultaneously punchy and soothing with a big body and a finish that boasts pineapple and grapefruit. Flower Power is hopped and dry-hopped five different times throughout the brewing and fermentation process.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1/2 inch head, lots of carbonation. Smell is of hops, citrus. Taste is hoppy, bitter, citrus, a touch of resin. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, while it didn't quite live up to the hype, it is a good quality beer.

A- settles into a nice thin head against a golren- haze of a body. Mild lacing.

S-spring. A bouquet of mid-season flora with a hint of lemon and tangerine. Immense. Mild grapefruit in the background with a definite sense of citra hops.

T- the taste hits on that same citrus vibe with some herbal notes... much like a mix between lemongrass and mint. Coriander and rosemary subside behind a lush flow of cascades.

M- bright with good carbonation.

O- a nice mix of citrus and hops... not stunning, but s great vibe for the price. Very spring, very supported.

A: This poured a hazy light gold with white head.
S: It smelled like citrus and herbal hops.
T: It tasted like bitter citrus zest with some herbal hops, and a little sugary pine. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a nice IPA with solid scent and taste and an ok body. It had a smooth finish, so it was easy to drink. Enjoyable, but nothing earth shattering.

Poured into a Tallgrass Brewing tulip. Pours two fingers of thick frothy white head with a pale golden colored body. Up front juicy tropical fruit hops with a more herbal hop behind that. Taste is more herbal/catty hop forward than the fruity hops in the nose. Sweet biscuit backbone. Medium mouthfeel with a sticky dry finish. Overall a nice looking IPA with a great nose of tropical fruits, citrus and herbal hops. Nice dry hopping too. The taste is more catty as compared to the nose but still has some nice citrus notes. Respectable and recommended.

This new flower power is not what it used to be. It's a mere shadow of 2011 Flower Power. The beer had very little scent. The flavor was faint. This beer could be called "Flower Power light".
It is still a fine beer but it lost it's edge....big time.
