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.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2009
Bottle thanks to 17thfloor. Dark ruby color with small to medium beige head. Aroma is real fruity malt with yeast, a good amount of hop qualities, sweet but not cloyingly so. Flavor is sweet roasted malt, nuttiness, nice bitterness and pine, dirty grapefruit flavor, some banana as well. Medium body and creaminess. Nice. I think a India brown ale is a great name for the style that this would fall into.

f351c4v (411) - Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2009
On tap @ Mad Mex. Pours a dark amber color with a good sized tan head. Sweet, malty caramel aroma. Starts hoppy, odd for a brown ale, then the sweet malty body kicks in. Weird mix of sweetness and herbal finish. Not bad.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5594) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2012 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a ruby-brown color with a large dark beige head. The aroma was fruity hops, sweet, malty, nutty an had a touch of cocoa. The flavor was dry, toasty and bitter with noted fruity and floral hops an a touch of coffee and cocoa. The finish was long, dry, fruity, roasty and hoppy. Well done.

19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - JUN 15, 2009
Good looking brown - clear with deep brown hues under the large dense white head. Good toasted bread malt backbone highlighted by toffee and chocolate. Strong spicy hop note heavy on citrus but lacking a pronounced floral character.

12oz bottle 6/14/09 (Courtesy of RSRIZZO)-Pours an amberish brown with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, slight hops. Taste of the same with the hops coming more prominent throughout the taste. This medium bodied brew is quite tasty and a nice twist on the style. Good brew.

thegreenrooster (3566) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Pour is a brown with a small white head. Aroma is a tosty malt with some lemon. Flavor is a heavy dose of caramel malts with some coffee at the end. Hops are not there for this to be a brown hop bomb but they are there in more subtle ways. Its one of those beers that brings out something different at every sip.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 11, 2009
BEautiful chestnut brown in color with a nice light tan head and nice carbonation. Slightly medicinal caramel aroma. Rich and malty, very full bodied, with a nice layer of chocolate, caramel and biscuit. The hops are a bit tamer than expected, citrus is present, but never overpowering. Some bitterness at the finish. Props to you, a tremendous beer!

dmac (4740) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2009
12 oz bottle from a 6-pack purchased at EZ Liquors. Pours a nice deep reddish/amber with an ample foamy light beige head with some amazing lasting power. Aroma is chocolate, toast, pine and citrus. Medium bodied with average to slightly strong carbonation and a bitter full mouthfeel. Flavor if mostly chocoalate and citrus and although not quite as nice as the aroma not that much of a difference to necessitate a difference in the scores. The big aroma/flavors of chocolate and citrus in this one just weren’t melding and this one is average at best.
