Had the pleasure of getting my hands on a few of these at Mikro in Hamden CT during a special Ithaca cask event. They served a cask each of Flower Power citra and simcoe dry hopped. The citra was AMAZING! One of the best cask ales I have ever tasted. The head looked like whipped cream, the nose was near perfect, and the citra hops were very lively. If you ever have a chance to get your hands on either of these, but especially their citra cask version, don't pass it up.

Ithaca Beer Company - Dry Hopped Flower Power - 32oz mini-growler

Hendry hooked me up with this hidden New York gem a few days after it was bottled.

Look - Pours a hazy pale golden with an amber tinge. Minimal head but carbonation in the body. Despite a large head, there was sliding lacing present.

Smell - Here I gathered a sweet sugary smell, similar to honey, most likely a combination of the lighter malts and the dry hopping mixed together. Floral and pine hops are in front. I found the aroma to be surprisingly sweet but appetizing nonetheless.

Taste - This brew shines here. Snappy malts are almost instantaneously overridden by super bitter piney/floral hops. Super smooth, quite a unique flavor overall, the dry hopping is likely to have added to this enhancement but I wonder if there is a trade-off.

Mouthfeel - In the feel, the dry hopping seems to take away a bit. Super bitter hops here kills whatever is left of the smoothness, leaving only the dry hops with no real complexity left. It is still good, but I was enjoying the smoothness of the taste. Might have to grab the original to compare. Booziness is slight, nothing bad there.

Overall - Good solid brew, I would like to try it out without it having been dry-hopped, just to see if it retains the smoothness in the taste right down to the mouthfeel. Even still, this is a good brew.
