Poured from a 330 ml bottle into a tulip class.

A: Areally nice straw color beer and very clear. It poured to a nice white bubly head, albeit not very thick, and settled down to a thin collar. There was no appearent lacing though (wonder if my glass was dirty or something?).

S: A great nose on this beer! It smelled sweet and juicy, lots of piney notes and some citrus to back it up. Maybe a touch of spiciness in there.

T: Obviously a huge wack of hops, spicy and high floral notes, pine and some citus in the back. A nice malt character balances out the high level of bittering hops. I find Flower Power to be a bit dry. It finishes very clean though.

M: Smooth and round on the palate.

O: Delicious! A tasty brew. Would be one of my fav's except for the lack of lacing (minor concern) and a bit dry in the finish. Still, I am splitting hairs and this is a great beer.
