I've only had this on draft, but I would rank this as the most perfect beer I have had. If you're an IPA fan who enjoys the more aromatic IPA's. you've got to try this. SImply fantastic.

Notes: Had on draft in Central PA at both Vic's pub and Smiling Chameleon. Absolutely fantastic in both cases.

Flower Power pours a hazy golden color with a small head. Their is a mellow dry floral hoppy aroma. The taste has a nice bold hoppy flavor. Strong hop flavors but still very easy to drink, nice mellow bitterness. Overall a very rich and full, high quality IPA.

reviewing with allergies, and a stuffed nose...

From a recent trade, poured from the bottle into Lagunitas mason jar

A- poured a clean, clear amber color with a quarter inch white head, good lacing all the way thru..

S- as I said, stuffed up a bit, but got notes of hops, citrus, clean nutty smell.

T- hoppy, but not bitter!? very light malts, nice and hoppy, again with lots of citrus. Almost a little booziness as it has started to warm. Lighter overall than I'd expect from an IPA, but it's not the west coast style I'm used to.

M- highly carbonated, and light, perhaps the bitterness just doesn't translate to the bite in the back of the mouth.. Again lighter than anticipated, but still very nice!

O- I really liked this beer, very different than CA IPAs I'm used to, but a great beer none the less.

Thanks Houser!
