Drink IPA

This blog is a tribute to one of the best ales in the world. It will serve as an archive and guide to the beers I sample. Hopefully this will inspire a few of you to step into the delicious world of IPA.

Thanks for taking a look and enjoy.
Ithaca Beer Co. - Flower Power IPA

Appearance:  Light golden yellow with a pretty frothy white head.

Aroma:  Right away you get a big hit of juicy hop aroma, juicy fruits, tropical, sweet orange, mango, pineapple, and a hint of the malts in the background.

Taste:  Very well balanced, medium mouth without a ton of carbonation making it a tad syrup-like in the mouth. The first sip is more of the juicy hop flavor followed up with a perfect balance from the malts.  Not too sweet, and it holds this entire beer together. The finish gradually fades into a fairly mild bitterness that ties each sip together. 

Overall:  This is a really solid IPA and worth picking up. It’s very well balanced with a pleasant hop aroma, flavor, malts, and bitterness. This could be a good “gateway” beer into the style as it’s not too aggressive. If you can find this very fresh on draft, it packs a bit more dank hop character in the aroma and taste.

Bottom Line: Drink It! Balanced, Juicy Hops, Mild Bitterness
