Flower Power India Pale Ale (beer review)

7.5% ABV. IPA from Ithaca Beer company in New York.  Acquired through trade. Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a hazed pale orange and golden with copious off-white super-lacy head. Delightful orange, resin, tangerine and general citrus aroma. Flavors are right there with the aroma. Bright fresh floral and pungent clementine and sour orange peel citrus. Brisk, grassy and fresh. Nicely balanced with the right malt profile (not too much crystal malt). Medium bodied; slightly syrupy. Medium carbonation throughout. Decent, yet unspectacular IPA although quite sessionable. Beeradvocate: A-, Ratebeer: 94pts, theBeerAuthority: B. Locally available (Metro DC)? No.
