Very nice IPA with 7.5% ETOH, flavorful and not terribly hoppy. Excellent combination.

A very solid IPA that is extremely well-balanced with floral, grapefruit, and pineapple hop notes in the nose and a solid malt backbone on the back end. A pleasingly bitter finish wraps this 7.2% American IPA up very nicely. Would pair very well with many foods but especially the spicier ones. I had mine with Sweet Garlic Chili Wings, and it worked very well. Flower Power's been around for some time, and it's not hard to see why it's an evergreen.

Picked up a bottle at the supermarket to give it a try. Fun bottle design and fun beer. Pours a golden Amber color with a nice head. Fruity smell snd you can definitely taste the citrus and hops. Nice easy to drink beer. Liked this and will look for more from Ithaca.

very fragrant and tasty american ipa, can't comment on look too much, as im not drinking from my beer glass.
smell is floral citrus, with strong grapefruit.
taste is grapefruit forward, but not overpowering, good balance of bitterness, and little to no alcohol bite for 7.5%
smooth mouth feel. is pricey, but when i can splurge it'll be in my fridge!

12 oz bottle brought back from northern NY to northern IL. The aroma is more floral, piney and citrusy, yet the taste is drier, maltier and hoppier. A solid east coast IPA, hoppy but not near as citrusy as west coast IPAs, and with a more bitter finish.

12 oz can in Dublin, Ohio.
Hazy amber body with a white head that displays good retention.
Moderately hoppy, strong and bitter for an American IPA. Fruity and herbal notes with a touch of earthy. Hints of ripe apricots and pears.
Medium body and medium-high carbonation.
