On draft at the brewery - Lemondrop and cask. Given that this has the same signature hop used in Stone's Delicious IPA, I couldn't help drawing some parallels in flavor profiles between the two. Ithaca's is more grassy and less lemony, but that fits in with what Flower Power is normally. What really sets them apart is the fact that this one was served on cask, and therefore had a much smoother and substantial mouthfeel than the more thinly bodied Delicious. Excellent overall

Had the pleasure of getting my hands on a few of these at Mikro in Hamden CT during a special Ithaca cask event. They served a cask each of Flower Power citra and simcoe dry hopped. The citra was AMAZING! One of the best cask ales I have ever tasted. The head looked like whipped cream, the nose was near perfect, and the citra hops were very lively. If you ever have a chance to get your hands on either of these, but especially their citra cask version, don't pass it up.
