COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Elegantly traditional and rich in its’ hop character, this India Pale Ale is thirst-quenching and soul-satisfying. Each sip delivers a bounty of herbal and floral hop character, balanced by the fruity signature of our house yeast.

My absolute favorite IPA. The nose is floral and citrus. Unfiltered but clean. Huge pineapple hop flavor attack on the first sip. Goes down way too smoothly for a 7.5% brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 One of my favorites. Super citrusy aroma and not an over powering bitterness. Always fresh and ridiculous.

Shockingly fantastic, try it in Syracuse at the Gordon Beirsch Brewing company to really upset them!

This just does it for me. The grapefruit, resiny, piney, floral hop taste with whatever floral undertones created by the yeast just completely get it done. Awesome IPA. As long as you get it fresh. Outstanding on tap.

This may just be the perfect hop bomb! The flower aroma lives up to the label’s billing! The aroma on this one is worth the price of admission alone, but the taste and mouthfeel on this beer are astounding. This is by far one of my go-to beers and is one of my favorite IPA’s on the market. If you see a fresh bottle at your local store pick it up without hesitation!

An orange appearance, definitely something different. A big head that lasts throughout. Lacing is solid. The aroma is without a doubt floral and sweet...hence the name flower power. The initial mouthfeel is wet and taste is fruity and tart. This is a thicker feeling beer. Hoppy tasting that stays smooth and wet all the way through to the aftertaste. An awesome beer!

Very hoppy, which is a good thing! The aroma definitely states IPA. Cloudy, like an unfilered brew, gives it a thickness in appearance. Each sip brings out a different palate experience. Sometimes fruity, sometimes floral. Never a bad exerience on the taste buds. The lighter color masks the higher ABV content which hits you when you least expect it.

Best before March 2011 A: Pours a dark golden/straw color with a very small and whispy head. Retention is not great. S: Tropical fruits (mango, candied pineapple), bread, toffee, caramel, and some caramel malts to balance. Really awesome nose- definitely foresee fruity vs bitter T: Tropical fruits, kind of sweet- almost like candied pineapple. TONS of mango in the flavor, especially the end palate/finish and abit resinous. Malty with notes of caramel, toffee, and bread. Nicely balanced. Not bitter MF/D: Big body for the style/ABV, smooth and velvety feel to it. My only complaint about the feel is the lack of carbonation...a tiny bit too low for me Notes: This is Sweetwater IPA meets Hopslam...absolutely awesome tropical fruit/citrus flavors from the hops. Highly recommended

Flower power sounds like a pretty sissy beer but it is nothing of the sort ! This is one delicious hoppy beer . Our store in nj just got in 5 cases only 3 days old and I already took a case home to save its that good . If you are an ipa fan this is one to put on the try list . At first the overall aroma can be a bit overwhelming if you are not expecting such a strong delightful smell but once you settle in your in for a treat . Well done Ithaca !
