Slightly hazy amber color with a thin head leaving laces as it goes down.
Delicious aroma of predominant passion fruit, one of the strongest and assertive I have drunk so far. Just had a smoked porter and it flashed across it. Hints of pine and flowers.
Taste also brings up passion fruits mixed with grapefruit. Citrus and resin notes. It has actually two stages with a smooth transition, first the tropical sweetness and then bitterness come gaining power. Dry and quite bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with good carbonation, its 7.5% ABV is completely hidden.
Refreshing and hoppy beer. Not overly sweet with a great nose and mouth feel. I was positively surprised. The label was too cool, which can be a double-edge sword.
Good for both IPA beginners and lovers. Hopheads should even have this as a session beer.

I've only had this on draft, but I would rank this as the most perfect beer I have had. If you're an IPA fan who enjoys the more aromatic IPA's. you've got to try this. SImply fantastic.

Notes: Had on draft in Central PA at both Vic's pub and Smiling Chameleon. Absolutely fantastic in both cases.

Flower Power pours a hazy golden color with a small head. Their is a mellow dry floral hoppy aroma. The taste has a nice bold hoppy flavor. Strong hop flavors but still very easy to drink, nice mellow bitterness. Overall a very rich and full, high quality IPA.
