Flower Power is my reference for American IPAs. It strikes a very nice balance between citrus and bitter. The nose is second to none.

My only reservation about this beer is food pairing. It really seems like a beer that deserves to be tasted on its own with a clean palate.

I first had this on-tap at the fabulous Blue Tusk in Syracuse and it was every bit as good as indicated by previous reviewers. I've since bought a six pack and it was equally as tasty in the bottle. The citrus just SMACKS your nose, but in a wonderful way. In fact, that's the most distinctive aspect of this brew. It's so prominent that I merely opened a bottle in my kitchen and someone else came in later and immediately noticed it.

You smell it and think, "Wow -- can this taste as good as it smells?" And the answer is, "Yes!" If you love citrus (grapefruit) and hops and more hops and more hops, you can't go wrong with this one.

Pours orangy/copper with a couple fingers head.

Smell fresh grapefruit, a bit of melon and tropical fruit, juicy.

Taste is lightly bitter up front and very juicy and fruity in the middle and tail. Leaves a hoppy aftertaste.

Very easy drinking. Good ipa
