3.65/5 rDev -13.9%
Pours a bright orange color with about one finger of fluffy white head with decent retention.
The scent is of mainly citrus hops.
The taste is of moderately bitter citrus and piney hops, some spice is also present.
Medium body, smooth and pretty dry, moderate carbonation.
This was a pretty good IPA, not really among the best I've had but overall a flavorful easy to drink beer.

I picked up this bottle as part of my effort to review the top 100 beers of fame. I know that it isn't on the list yet, but it has a good chance of appearing. There are already over 900 reviews, and it gets a pretty good grade (rightfully so).
This is a pretty good IPA. We are lucky in that there are a lot of good IPA's around. This beer is in the upper tier. The smell was a little light, but the flavor is very present. I like this grapefruit/citrus IPA. Ithaca did a pretty good job.

Served in a pint glass.
Appearance: Slightly dark goldish amber, slight hazing with a thing white head which rose to maybe 1/4".
Smell: Light floral and piney, you can inhale the hops in this brew.
Taste: Bitter but tasty, floral taste lightly piney feel to it. It isnt an imperial but is damn good.
Mouth: Medium with a trickling after taste, holy smooth.
Overall: This is by far one of the best everyday IPAs you can have. I can drink this all day especially followed by a good cigar. Salud!

Pours a medium amber color with a medium white head that quickly faded to a thin white film. Nose is full of hops - hence the name. Love the floral aroma. Taste is surprisingly sweet, considering the huge hop presence in the aroma. Also some pine and citrus. Medium-heavy mouthfeel. Overall, a fantastic, balanced IPA. I will definitely have it again.

On draught at Mad Mex, Flower Power is dark, dull gold with a small off-white collar leaving sticky, scattered lace.
Smell is pungent, bright NW hops, a nice balance of citrus and resin.
Taste is also pungently hoppy, heavier skewed to the pine than the nose. A bit hot, with a surprisingly firm malt backbone for the appearance, if not the cleanest - must be lots of cheap 2-row.
Mouthfeel is oily, medium bodied, drier.
Drinkability is pretty good. This taste pretty fresh, hop wise, and slakes my NW style IPA cravings well enough, but the somewhat dirty flavors of malt and fermentation lead me to believe this one would fall off in a hurry.
