A: Pours a very hazy burnt orange, with a very nice creamy white head, great retention, and lacing.

S: Some floral/ citrus notes up front, sweet malts are there, and some pine as well.

T: Alright.. at first i tasted the biscut flavor and some sweetness, but then comes the hop power, citrus, and pine. Also a little spice in there... very bitter.

M: Medium, somewhat dry, but not completely.

O: Hops are on display here which makes the name ring true. Very good IPA.

A pretty typical American IPA that pours semi-unfiltered into a pint glass. The taste is mostly sharp Earthy hops with a slight hint of lemon zest in the aftertaste. Finishes with high resins on the palate and just a little citrus fruit. Mouthfeel fades quickly and doesn't leave much of aftertaste. Don't know how old this bottle is (the label was notched drink by January) so the freshness might have faded a little but not yet cloying. A good IPA, would like to try it fresher.

A- Inch-tall fluffy white head on a dull orange beer. Above average head retention and good drink-by-drink step lacing.

S- Oh my. Amazing grapefruit aroma!! Smelled it at the first half pry of the cap.

T- Yes, this is the type of IPA I love. Citrus notes dominate. Nice lingering hops on a strong malt backbone. Drinks right at 7.5%abv with a touch of booziness.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Good carbonation.

D/O- My first offering from Ithaca did not disappoint. I've wanted to try Flower Power for a long time, funny that my chance would come in an LIF win. Thanks again Mike (mcb4538)!!

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.
