Have always loved the Ithaca Flower Power. Great aromatic IPA.
A: Pours a slightly cloudy orangish color. In the bottle it was more clear with suspended chunks throughout. These bottle always need to be stored upright and remain undisturbed prior to pouring to reduce the sediments.
S: Great floral hop aroma and slight alcohol smell.
T: Strong and persistent hop bitterness that sticks with your tongue. Accompanied by a nice hop flavor.
Overall: This is a good solid IPA for those who like a hoppy aromatic type of IPA. One negative of this beer is the apparent consistency and quality control. I feel that Flower Power used to be even better than it is now, but unfortunately I have commonly had consistency issues with one batch to the next. Some bottles have been very malt forward with little to no aroma, and it does not appear to be linked with the "best by" date, as it is often a relatively fresh bottle with a lot of time until the "expiration" date. Too bad since it's such a great beer when fresh.
Recommend getting this beer on tap at your local bar or restaurant.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: A very bright sunrise in a glass. Golden hues with a paper white head that is frothy yet subsides quickly.
S: Lots of juicy citrus mixed with a mellow floral hop blend.
T: Very bright and citrusy. Nothing is overpowering which is one of the very finest strengths of this beer. A very bold IPA but doesn't bring that very sticky, viscous aftertaste.
M: Very mellow with a slight ting of alcohol coming through the back. Creamy and smooth.
O: I've never been a huge IPA fan but it's gems like this that make me appreciate and thirst the style.
