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

Bottle from Tops. Hazy dark golden with nice creamy head. Citrusy, dank aroma. This one’s off to a lovely start. Taste Is juicy, mild hops bitterness, floral. Rich and full. Everything works together beautifully. Really nice.

Got this one on draft. Appearance was a medium dark gold with a thick head and few bubbles. Aroma was freshly broken pine needles and pomelo peel. Taste was mild but bright grapefruit with just enough hops to keep the malt in line. Mouthfeel was crisp.

Tried this at The Boatyard Grill in Ithaca, N.Y. About an inch of head with spotty lacing and a nice dark amber color. Taste is resinous and piney with floral notes. Overall great ipa.
