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.

Have always loved the Ithaca Flower Power. Great aromatic IPA.

A: Pours a slightly cloudy orangish color. In the bottle it was more clear with suspended chunks throughout. These bottle always need to be stored upright and remain undisturbed prior to pouring to reduce the sediments.

S: Great floral hop aroma and slight alcohol smell.

T: Strong and persistent hop bitterness that sticks with your tongue. Accompanied by a nice hop flavor.

Overall: This is a good solid IPA for those who like a hoppy aromatic type of IPA. One negative of this beer is the apparent consistency and quality control. I feel that Flower Power used to be even better than it is now, but unfortunately I have commonly had consistency issues with one batch to the next. Some bottles have been very malt forward with little to no aroma, and it does not appear to be linked with the "best by" date, as it is often a relatively fresh bottle with a lot of time until the "expiration" date. Too bad since it's such a great beer when fresh.

Recommend getting this beer on tap at your local bar or restaurant.
