Strong hop smack aroma with a generous head. This beer is really enjoyable. This is my first brew from Ithaca and I am impressed. Flower Power is a high quality IPA that stands upright in the crowded field of legendary IPA's. The only drawback for me is the bitterness which is slightly high for my liking.
Bottom Line: Great IPA worth the money. Would purchase again.

Pours a clear golden yellow, a hair brighter than a miller high life. Thin white head dissipates to a thick outer ring and a pond of froth on top.
Aroma is light, with faint citrus hops and very mild bready malt. A bit of orange, tangerine and lemon zest.
Flavor is heavy on the hops. A tongue filling blend of pine, mild mint leaves, grass, lime zest, grapefruit and tangerine. Balanced well despite an existing but nuetral 2 row like malt base. Vibrant flavor, well balanced.
Hop bitterness floods all parts of the tongue. Medium body, low carbonation.
A great ipa. Well balanced with a wide variety of hop flavor, medium bitterness and high drinkability despite its abv.

Great IPA. Citrusy taste with the perfect amount of hops. My perfect IPA. This is a beer I can keep drinking all night. I have drank many different IPAs and they do not come close to this beer. Smooth finish with a good after taste. I will buying this beer wherever I see it.

Bottle says BB May, 2013 - ~1 month old.
The nose is dominated by grapefruit, mango, and citrus with a touch of piney hops and a slight sweetness from the malt body. Great nose.
It's extremely hoppy upfront, it mirrors the nose - citrus, grapefruit and mango are punchy and powerful. In the mid-palate the piney and resinous hops comes through and it finishes bitter with slight hoppy resins. Throughout the hops are underpinned by a bisquity malt body that sufficiently balances the hops while still placing them on center-stage.
Medium mouthfeel - simple, perfect for an IPA.
Overall this is a fantastic IPA that is so easy to drink. It's refreshing and awesome when fresh. This is my go to beer when I can get it fresh.
