I agree that "this is a beautiful beer".
This is also one great smelling beer!
What a nose! A flowery explosion.
Beautiful lacing all down the glass.
This is one of my own top 5 beers on 2011!

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
One of the most balanced IPAs in the country and one that I drink all the time. Mild grapefruit in the nose and flavor. Pleasant bitterness that doesn’t rip your tongue off. The perfect after work beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared thanks to Matt! Pours a translucent golden yellow with thin ring of white lacy head. Aroma of nice citrus hops, grapefruit, and a hint of bread. Taste follows, slight bitter sweet finish, good but nothing great.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft. Cloudy straw color with a white head. Nice floral hop and citrus aroma. I got some tangerine with a big floral bitter hop finish. It was worth guzzling the swill that was on tap before this to get to this keg in the rotation.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium gold, clear color.
Full body, smooth, very long palate.
Very bitter, dry, not enough malt fir my taste.
Hop feast. Worth having sometimes.

Flower power is the perfect name for this ipa. The aroma is very flowery but no too so. I like it

12oz bottle. Pineapple aroma. Kind of cloudy yellow-copper color. Little lacing. Flavors are juicy grapefruit with a tart pineapple finish. No malts to speak of. Really nice IPA.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.; thanks jmborggren). Looks good; a mostly transparent golden orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of bitter, juicy, and floral hops with a medium-bodied pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice mouthfeel. A good example of the style.
