Decent beer. Not too heavy, bitter enough for an IPA. This is the type of beer that you can have four or five of in one session. Definitely a lower quality but go to IPA.

12 oz pour into a standard pint glass. Slightly cloudy pale straw gold color.1/2 inch head that dissipated but clung to the side of the glass aggressively. Awesome floral aroma. Hop forward flavor with nice balance. Bitterness is present but nicely attenuated. Just makes you want to drink more. I have had it fresh on tap and it is really outstanding. I am so glad that it is now available where I live, though in bottles. One of my go-to beers. Quite delicious.

Best by: Unknown, served extremely cold, on tap at E's (UWS). Drank 11.29.14. Poured into a 16oz shaker.

A: Crystal clear golden coloring, zero head upon receiving glass (was unable to see the bartender make the pour). Faint super sticky lacing, zero carbonation present. I suspect that the appearance of this beer was a result of the extremely cold pour, so consider this a placeholder until I re-review.

S: After letting it warm up... hop forward, sweet, dank pine aromas. Grapefruit, apricot, lemon... well balanced and pleasant... easy and laid back. Aroma seemed to linger for quite some time.

T: Sweet hops with a bitter backing. Pine, FLORAL, mango, pineapple... plenty of malt sweetness. Very well put together.

M: Medium body, next to zero carbonation (could be from the temp/keg), very little lingering bitterness... but a noticeable lingering sweet stickiness.

O: It seems that there is a never ending supply of IPAs out there, and that finding quality iterations is becoming easier and easier, but Flower Power is a standout. A beer I would definitely purchase again, and which might well become my go to IPA while living in NYC.
