Great aroma of citrus, flowers, caramel. The appearance is a clear orange, white head. The flavor is caramel, flowers, grapefruit. The mouthfeel is a little on the thin side of medium. The finish is a nice citrus hoppiness. Decent, if not outstanding IPA. GrungyBob (62) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2009

12oz bottle -pours a rich off white head that laces and amber color. Aroma is sweet peach/lemon, some medium malt-caramel. Taste is sweet pineapple/peach/lemon hops. As it warms some herbal, secondary medium malt-caramel. MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Hazy copper body with a bubbly white head. Nose has fresh hop in grapefruit and is balanced by malt that reminds of packaged crackers or grain cereal. Flavor is similarly hop heavy, but there is more caramel and malt to balance than the nose. Flower Power exhibits an oily, moderate-lengthed finish with light salt and a sweeter mango note than is found in the nose. Rather enjoyable and balanced, though nothing is aggressively mind-boggling. Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Enjoyed from a 12oz bottle in a pub glass. The beer pours a light to just-short-of-medium amber color, with a frothy white head. The nose brings very strong character of citrusy west coast hops. The palate is definitely hop-forward, bringing a strong bitterness on the front end, a mix of pleasing but hard to nail down malt character and hop flavor (Simcoe?) in the mid-palate, and a nice semi-dry semi-estery finish that lasts several minutes. The drinkability of the beer belies its high abv. Overall, very nicely crafted. A well-kept secret from Ithaca.

On tap at Cambridge Common, Cambridge MA, October 2009. Hazy amber. Big grapefruit hop hit on the nose. Even more on the palate. Pine & resin too. Lightish mouthfeel. Lingering tart bitterness. Good.

Bottle. 12 oz. Pours yellow/orange hazy with a thin white head. Aroma of honey, hops, wheat, grapefruit, and hints of lavender. Medium bodied with a curious, soft, inviting mouthfeel. Tangy, tart, yet smooth finish. Good IPA. beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - NOV 16, 2009

This beer pours a hazy golden color. It has a hoppy aroma and flavor, but is nicely balanced. It went very well w/ the Thai food I’m having. dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - OCT 29, 2009
On tap. Very sharp hop aroma, but mostly floral. Medium body. Finishes sharp and quick.
