12 oz bottle brought home from a recent trip to Ohio.

Flower Power is a hazy golden yellow color with thick white head after a vigorous pour. It's slow to settle and leaves nice lacing.

Aroma is fresh and hoppy, as expected, with candied orange peal and grapefruit coming through.

Flavor is intensely hoppy but not overly bitter. A lot of late hop additions give it the aroma and flavor of hops without some much bitterness. Some nice honey sweetness up front and lots of great citrus flavor from middle to end.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated. Good balance for an IPA.

Overall an excellent IPA and well worth the hassle of bringing it home on a plane. A bit like a lighter version of Hop Slam if my memory serves me right.

Appearance: Poured a yellowish-gold, very little head that faded quickly to a thin film. Slight lacing.
Smell: Fruity, flowery aroma, with just a slight touch of sweet malty smells.
Taste: Not a hop bomb, pretty well balanced with some nice citrus and pine notes and just the right amount of sweetness to complement rather than hide or overpower the hoppiness
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, nice carbonation.
Overall: This is a very well made beer, I was pleasantly surprised. Wish we could get this beer (and fresh) in CO.

On the light side, with medium carbonation for the style but very good lacing. Biscuity malt notes, and the hop notes are pine and crushed aspirin. Good beer, but not one of my favorites because of a slight soapiness.

Amazing beer. Hoppy, full of citrus. Mangos, grapefruit, hint of pine. Fairly bitter. Highly recommend. Great burp taste!
