Thanks to Big Mike for offering this one up for the show. It’s the Ithaca Flower Power IPA, which many claim to be one of the best IPAs to come from the east coast. It certainly poured into the glass more like a west coast IPA with its warm yellowish-orange color and off-white head. My nose easily picked up the citrus (tangerine), grapefruit, and herbs. On the palate, there were wonderful notes of herbal and grassy hops with citrus and pine to finish it all. Overall, this was an enjoyable and easy-drinking IPA. I’d say get it if you can, but chances are if you can get it you’ve already had it.
