Pours a golden orange color with decent head and tremendous lacing. Slightly cloudy. Aroma is awesome with pine resin and lots of citrus. Taste is similar to aroma with pine resin, hops and a lot of citrus, especially sweet tropical citrus. Nice mouthfeel and th balance of hops and citrus is great. The sweet of the tropical fruit is teasing in that it makes you want a little more but I am glad it doesn't because tha balance is very good. A hoppy-citrusy beer that is very drinkable and offers a great clean, crisp finish leaving you wanting more....

Bottle from the 08.27.14 batch poured into a teku.

Flower Power pours a cloudy shade of golden orange. The aromas are heavily on the citrus fruit side: lots of fresh orange peel, pineapple, and grapefruit. But underneath those aromas is a light, herbal tea-like scent, which is really nice. The taste is sweet and juicy, with sweetened white grapefruit juice the dominant flavor. The finish is mostly sweet, too, though there's a pronounced bitterness at the very end. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side. This is a great juicy, herbal IPA that I'm glad to see in Ohio. Definitely on the sweeter side, but it's a good, light sweetness, rather than a heavy, overpowering, and awful sweetness you see in something like Chillwave.

From the hand pump at the brewery. Dry hopped with delta hops.

I found a nice combination of honey and toffee for a malt base. While it wasn't unhoppy, I did expect more from a beer I had heard such great things about. I tasted earthy citrus and dank grassiness. The body was smooth and creamy.

Not bad overall but a bit of a letdown.
