Enjoy the clover honey hue and tropical nose. Simultaneously punchy and soothing with a big body and a finish that boasts pineapple and grapefruit. Flower Power is hopped and dry-hopped five different times throughout the brewing and fermentation process.

12oz Bottle - thanks to swedes21 for this one

Appearance - Clear amber/light-copper colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, caramel, hops, tangerines, grapefruit, apricots

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel and some hops. There is also a great amount of fruit taste - grapefruit, tangerine, and some apricots. There was a very light amount of corn taste as well. It ends with a malty and citrusy aftertaste with a fair amount of lingering hop bitterness.

Overall - An excellent beer that has a fantastic scent and great appearance in the glass. The taste is above average and it's surely one of the better IPA's I've come across. Worth seeking out.

4.34/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden color with low carbonation. About 1" of white head forms, which has okay retention and lacing.

Smell: Pale and caramel malts are detected up front, but easily the most prominent smell is an incredible dankness. Sweet, perfume-like grassiness and florals. Extremely nice.

Taste: Similar to smell. Big sweet dankness. A touch of alcohol. Doesn't lend itself quite as well to the taste, but still outstanding. Alcohol grows a bit more prevalent as the beer warms.

Overall: Light bodied with low carbonation. Pretty nice feel. Overall, a great IPA. Smell is world class, and the rest of the beer is very good.
