Pours about two inches of foam that settles down to one inch. Hazy golden color. Sweet, fruity, hoppy smell. Strong, sweet pungent taste---peach? honey? Nectar-like. Not as bitter as expected.

This is a surprisingly good IPA, with a name like Flower Power, I expected it to be overally floral and taste like potpourri. Im not a big fan of most IPA's because they tend to over do the hopiness to drive home the point that your drinking an IPA. Ithaca's Flower Power nailed what an IPA should really taste like. it has the right amount of hopiness mixed with subtle floral notes too produce an overall balanced and smooth drinking IPA

This New York beer drinks real well in south Florida heat. light tasting citrusy ipa coming in at close to 8 percent alcohol. love the art on the can. The checkout girl looked at the six pack and said “my dad would love this beer”. indeed. very light tasting ipa
