Ithaca Flower Power

I've had Ithaca Flower Power on draft and cask, but this is the first time from the bottle. Fresh it's such a great IPA and I figured this wouldn't be any different.
Bright nose with a decent amount of citrusy vanilla. It started with a little sweetness and a little citrus bitterness and finished with some more bitterness. Reasonably dry body as well. This isn't an IPA that blows you out of the water but something that is just delicious and solid. Definitely buy it fresh as it ages quickly. If you are looking for something not too expensive that is real tasty, this is a great choice.

On a separate note, I've been meaning to share this link for a few days. If you have any interest about sour style beers and how the yeast and bacteria affect the formation of flavors, definitely check it out. It's not long so it's worth a look.
