12 oz. bottle poured into tulip glass.

A: Mostly translucent gold coloring with a very minimal head.

S: Some light pine and citrus hop aromas take over the glass pretty much immediately.

T: Pine and citrus are immediate, followed by a sticky hop finish that has you going right back in for another sip. The hop characteristics permeate every bit of the beer.

M: Crisp, clean finish with mild carbonation. Not overly heavy at all, despite a solid ABV (7.5%).

O: Flower Power is among my favorite beers, IPA or otherwise. It inhabits its own unique place in the East Coast IPA range (not being overly malty or hoppy) and would contend with the best from the opposite coast as well. Best of all, it's readily available in the Northeast. Drink as much as you can.

this is a 1st class IPA..high quality beer for sure..its not the strongest IPA out there which is a good thing..a drinking beer..the strength of taste and its a little fuzzy at the end...otherwise it would have a 5.0..we truley live in a wonder time when a beer like this is not perfect..back in the early 80's Bass,Sierra and the Sam Adams were the best we could do..which they are still good,save for the fact Bass is not from England anymore
