Flashback Anniversary Ale is an India Brown Ale with 6.8% ABV. This is the first beer we’ve made here that uses one single hop variety (Cascade) in the recipe in five separate additions. The fresh Cascade hop aroma and flavor is perfectly balanced with the dark roasted grains, making Flashback a very unique beer. We’re calling it an India Brown Ale to help illustrate its flavor to the consumer. It’s hoppy like an IPA but dark and roasty like a Brown Ale. Put them together and voila! Flashback at its finest!

We at Boulder Beer Company are SO excited to announce the release of our 30th Anniversary commemorative beer...Flashback Anniversary Ale! Flashback will be available in 4/6/12oz cases, 15.5 gallon kegs and 5.16 gallon kegs. It will be available to ship beginning Monday, May 4th and will be available through September.

Paying homage to our roots and celebrating our milestone 30th Anniversary, we give you Flashback Anniversary Ale, an India Brown Ale single-hopped with five additions of Cascade hops. Citrusy with a prominent hop aroma, Flashback finishes clean, crisp and dry, with dark roasted flavors from the biscuit and chocolate malts perfectly complimenting the bountiful Cascades.

Flash back to 1979 and you’ll find two professors at the University of Colorado in Boulder longing for the full-flavored tastes of the British ales they had grown to love while traveling overseas. Testing the entrepreneurial waters with a little project called a microbrewery, they began brewing and selling a few of their own. There begins the tale of Boulder Beer Company, Colorado’s First Microbrewery. From the original Bitter, Porter and Stout recipes that founded our brewery to our exciting new releases, Boulder Beer continues to uphold our tradition of innovation in brewing.

Flashback Anniversary Ale is the 9th Release in our Looking Glass Series of specialty beers. Discover all of our award-winning beers at BoulderBeer.com.

Deep brown, nice head. Great aroma of roasted nuttiness, grapefruit and pine hops. Flavor is a balanced match to the aroma. Rather enjoyed this one.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2009
12oz bottle from matt or devon (actually gerritt!)..... pours a dark fig brown with a thin soapy white head..... aroma more akin to a brown ale with nutty caramel textures with a little citrus on the backend flavors of nutty caramel malt with a decent piney hop middle and then a roasty hopped up finish. medium carbonation and body. this took me by surprise as i enjoyed this hopped up brown ale which i tend to be a big fan of.

Boulder Flashback is a crystal clear sparkling red ale with a dense, creamy, khaki head that has outstanding lacing and retention. The aroma is of fresh citrusy hops, like fresh-squeezed orange juice with a touch of roastiness. It’s medium bodied; smooth but lively with a slightly caustic finish. It’s well bittered with orange peel and green, leafy flavors. Chocolate and roasted flavors take up the rear. It’s a little top heavy, but’s quite drinkable and engaging.

#1800 - Dark coppery brown, creamy light tan head with great lacing. Milk chocolate truffles and toasted caramel aromas swirl on soft layers of vanilla-coconut and earthy citrus. Rich toasted malt bill with caramelized vanilla bean and roasted chocolate nuttiness balancing on a foundation of citric earth hoppiness. Hints of dark fruit peek through at room temperature, but overall this beer is very well integrated from start to finish. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, lightly bittersweet finish. A true surprise here as I was not expecting such a multifaceted brew. The sad part….I only bought one bottle…

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - JUN 24, 2009
Bottle. Perfect appearance. Clear copper/amber body with a khaki head that holds and leaves great lace. Arom is of roasted malt with a respectable citrus character to boot. Flavor is doughy malt with nice hops on the finish to balance it all out. Palate is perfect: medium body with just the perfect amount of carbonation for the style and flavor. Overall: just do it.

I didn’t care for this beer...I liked the bottle version, but draft left much to be desired....Hop presence all but lost...all in all, it just tasted out of whack.............................................

cheap (4756) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2009
On tap at the Mad Mex in Robinson. Volatile aroma at times. Much more than a brown ale. Strong and rude initially, more like an IPA. Alky is in yer face with barely any carbonation. Looks like pale lager in the glass with a thin creamy head. Long bitter linger after each slug. Way too much personality for this lager lover. Rather rude and crude.

kassner (1462) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2009
On tap at Magoos. Really nice India Brown Ale, Modest Head, which fades quicly but some nice lacing, deep Amber, faint hops odor, but plenty of Malt and hops. Nice malty soapy finish.

tmoreau (3150) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2009
12 oz. bottle to a shaker at Lunar Brewing. Copper brown pour with a light tan, foamy head and clingy, curtain type lacing. The aroma is roasted with a little toasted malt, hint of grain and mash, and a bit of sweet caramel and chocolate. The flavor highlights the chocolate malt and adds a strong hop bitterness. A nice, bitter IBA

MeisterBrew (138) - Cheyenne, Wyoming, USA - JUN 20, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2009 Draught at WBF. Pours a reddish brown with a small orange colored head. Aroma is sweet... fruit, caramel, and a hint of hops. Flavor is also very sweet: chocolate and caramel sweetness gives way to a nice hoppy finish. Good beer.
