Gold with a thinnish head that hangs on pretty good.

Like, wow, man, this is one mellow IPA! Not much in the way of aroma - this followed a HopDevil, so it had a helluva opening act to live up to, but still, very subdued for an American IPA. The hops are primarily in the flavor and bitterness - they add a pleasant but not overpowering floral/citric/spicy character to the toasty, slightly caramelly malt flavors. A lingering bittersweet flavor finishes it off. Because of the lack of full frontal citrus assault and medium body, you can drink a LOT of these. Not the first choice for a hophead by any mans; however, if your tastes lean toward a more restrained IPA, it's a fine choice.

Pale gold, three quarter inch or so foamy white head. The aroma is a bit disappointing, lacking any hops. Flavor is good, though this is a relatively mild mannered IPA, in the English style. Light-moderate toasted malt provides the basis for this brew. Light leafy hops accent each taste without being over-the-top. Flower Power is best consumed with a clean palate, as it might be overwhelmed by following a hoppier beer. Good session brew or thirst quenching starter brew before moving on to something more substantial.
