1/19/2010: It’s official; I’ve been bitten by the hop bug. I just made a trip up to Vintage Estate and grabbed a bunch of hoppy beer. So keep your eye open for some more reviews that feature beers with large amounts of marijuana’s cousin.. the hop. *Insert corny hippie joke here*

Flower power smells like citrus and hops. Tastes like a lot of hop, but a bunch of fruit flavors balance it out. I taste apricot and orange? A bit of toasty malt in there also. This actually tastes like a tamer version of Dreadnaught to me. Again I admittedly am not the best at technical reviews for IPA’s as I am just getting into them, but this beer is very drinkable. Hops are not super intense, but you know they are there.

Funny Picture of the day: Very slick little personal ad.
