Flower Power pours a hazy orange with white head. There is an earthy flowery aroma and a mellow bitter and sweet taste. This is a smooth beer that is a pleasure to drink throughout the year.

enjoyed this beer with a Russia who had never had an IPA before and glad I chose it as a selection for both of us because it is a great example of the style. Light orange clear appearance with under a finger white head that faded. Aroma was a strong peach with some orange and just a bit of sweetness that was malt. A very well balanced bitterness to sweetness. Near perfect American IPA

Pours a amber opaque with with slight head and lacing. nose is hops wih slight bubble gum and cotton candy. first sip is slight crystal malt but hops present as well. A very balanced IPA but still leaves you tasing gthe hops like single IPA should. Feels big time west coast. A very nice IPA that I am glad I get regularly.

Old bottle from premier gourmet buffalo :(. Pour murky copper with 2 finger thick white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, grapefruit, oranges, and pineapple. Taste citrus fruit and hops. Lost a lot of its goodness Ive had from past bottles. Very weak body thin watery body. Shame.

Pours almost orange with a weak white head. Aroma of this is fantastic. Heavy floral and citrus notes. Strong citrus, like orange and lemon flavors, possibly a bit sprucy. There is a light sweetness to balance it out. Very good

Pours a brilliant hazy cloudy orange. Huge white head, left some decent lacing for an IPA. The aroma is absolutely inviting - the first whiff is stone fruits, mostly apricots, and very floral, like begonias or magnolias in spring. The name really fits. As it breaths and warms up some pine, spice, and citrus aromas come out. Very complex and enjoyable bouquet. Body is on the low end of medium, average carbonation. Palate is the full spectrum of hop flavors, it mirrors the nose - Citrus, Floral, Herbal, Spice, all layered very nicely, totally fresh tasting, and very lively. The finish lasts forever, with sticky hops lining the mouth. I scored this so high because it is my favorite interpretation of an IPA. At 75 IBU, it is all hops, as it should be. Im tired of high IBU beers having such a sweet malty backbone that the hops are toned down. This beer lets them shine, thats why I bought it. I havent been too impressed with Ithaca up till now, but they have redeemed themselves in my eyes.

I believe these notes titled Flower Power refer to this brew. Golden with thin white head. Citrus and bubblegum aroma. Big pine hop bite, nice body but all hops with this one.

A full boquet of mulitple hop styles greets you when you open this beer! I had a bottle last evening; pours a golden straw color with a very zippy head - even with a careful pour in a shaker pint glass, I had to give it a break to fit all the contents in the glass. The head is foamy and white, very pillowy though this is a CO2 head, not nitrogen. The attack is very hoppy and fresh, with a citrus rind and piney sort of taste, and the mouthfeel is zippy with carbonation. The body thins out quickly but smoothly and it has a surprisingly clean finish for such an agressive IPA. A great first beer of the night!
