Notes: Enjoy the clover honey hue and tropical nose. Simultaneously punchy and soothing with a big body and a finish that boasts pineapple and grapefruit. Flower Power is hopped and dry-hopped five different times throughout the brewing and fermentation process.

An attractively thick head sits atop a lovely hazy orange body. Floral aroma with some honey, lemon blossoms & pine tar. Mildly sweet with a fairly bitter finish. Hoppy flavor with citrus, pear & pine tar. Nice feel. I’m not a fan of IPS’s but this one is good

Pours a rich gold with a rocky white two finger head. Light citrus aroma, maybe some what floral. probably has more but my nose sucks. Taste shows some citrus peel a bit of grassiness and some biscuity malt. Light/medium bodied with a dry finish and mild carbonation. Very tasty warm weather IPA. I’ll be getting this again.

Ahhhhh. I get the west coast pine and grapefruit notes, with a touch of new school floral character. Just the right bitterness to finish it off. This was a fun one.

Look: best looking ipa i have seen in years. perfect sustained head, vivid sunset

Smell: balanced. floral immediately subsides and becomes a manly almost malty whiff

Taste: really balanced middle of the tongue mellow and then stays balanced w wonderful bitters

Feel: smooth start to finish

Overall: i think this might be the best most balanced beer, not just ipa, i have had in a long time. the brewers know what they are doing and you sense they are deferring, getting out of the way of the ingredients in this masterpiece

Pours a hazy gold. Hoppy aroma. Big dank hop body. Fades to a mild bitterness. Thick and syrupy. An old school IPA.

12oz bottle into a nucleated pint glass.
L: Pours light hazed apricot color, medium low carbonation, creamy 1" soft white head w/dents, good retention, random sticky lacing.
S: Sugary Xmas cookie dough, honey, graham cracker, caramelized malts, a hint of dark berries, a trace of alcohol as beer warms.
T: Sweet overripe citrus, brown sugar, lemon zest, plum, persimmon, full flavored and has volume, lightly toasted, moderately sweet w/a light linger.
F: Sharp & tart, lightly tacky med-heavy bodied mouthfeel w/a med-long drying finish.
O: A big tasting and large feeling IPA with enthusiastic amounts of hop tang. It is redolent perhaps of a Christmas Ale in it's depth. Stately, broad and big, it is outstanding in it's style.

This is purely subjective. Clearly, it’s a great beer! I got to try this on an endless layover in NYC where it was offered in bottles at the lounge. The honey notes arent a world of flavor I personally love as much, but the beer itself is nice and balanced and a quality zipper — especially when waiting eight hours for a flight.

Honey colored with no head to speak of. Nose is slightly sweet, but also a bit pungent. Tasting is where the magic happens. Bitter is the best adjective available, but it is great bitterness that follows through the entire palate. Great beer!

My continuation for beers I usually would not consume. The beer is 44 degrees and served in an IPA glass. The pour created a two-fingered off-white head. The head retention is excellent; it slowly dissipated, leaving some lacing on the glass. An amber yellow with orange hues, charting around SRM 7. This beer is clear with some carbonation bubbles.

I first smell floral esters, pine, herbal, and biscuits. Nosing further, I recognize lightly toasted malts, grapefruit, a hint of dankness, a touch of mango, and pineapple.

The flavors in the beer are floral esters, pine resin, herbal, biscuity, lightly toasted malts, pineapple, and grapefruit.

The mouthfeel of the beer is astringent and dry.

The body of the beer is medium-plus, medium carbonation, and a full finish.

An excellent IPA Full flavor and bright.

Always a pleasure to meet with this old friend. Bronze color, strong hoppy malty smell and taste, definitely not fruity or sweet, long finish. A great classic IPA.
