A - Somewhat hazy, muted orange, with a 1 finger white head, which fades pretty quickly. That being said, it does leave decent lacing.

S - Smells delicious, very citrus forward, sweetness rounding it off.

T - Citrus hops again dominate, strong taste of orange zest. Bitter hops mix in and finally a taste of pine.

M - Somewhat sticky with a perfect amount of carbonation.

O - Quite happy to finally try this. Very good IPA. I have not had an IPA in a while but this is a good reintroduction.

Enjoyed on tap at Pizzeria Paradiso in DC, poured into a pint glass.

A: A light golden brown, just darker than straw. A thin one finger head hangs out briefly, but doesn't leave any lacing.

S: A nice mix of sweet citrus and fresh hops. Some floral notes are there, but citrus is the primary scent.

T: The taste is excellent for a single IPA. Great balance between sweet citrus and floral notes and light bitterness from the hops. Honestly, it tastes like you're sipping a flower. Many times, IPA are dominated by one hop flavor (be it grapefruit, pine, or another), but this is remarkably well-balanced. No hints of alcohol. Wonderful.

M: A fairly light beer, especially given the the 7.5% ABV. Fairly highly carbonated.

O: Good beer! Sometimes IPAs can let me down, but this one was nice. The floral notes are definitely somewhat unique to this beer, given the other IPAs I've enjoyed. I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for more Flower Power!
