Bottle shared by Miketd. Thanks Mike! Pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma is pine, with some grass in the back side. Has a medium mouthfeel. Flavor is smooth malt, pine, and finishes with a strong pine flavor. Overall a great brew from one of the best IPA breweries in the US.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Flossmoor Station and served in an English pint glass. This IPA poured a dark reddish amber with a one-finger thick head of tan foam that slowly settled into a lasting ring. Some light lacing was left around the glass. The aroma was loaded with grapefruit and pine. The flavor was also full of hops. Not abrasively bitter, but not much malt comes through either. Mainly a lasting Chinook bitterness. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and clean. Light carbonation. A decent IPA, but not one of my favorites from Flossmoor.

An enjoyable IPA, thanks again Adam!

Draft at Flossmoor. Pours a dark orange with a small white head. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is of floral hops, citrus, pine, and caramel malt. Taste is sweet, earthy hops, pine, and caramel malt. Lingering alcohol burn in the finish. Not overly bitter, but damned tasty.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden Amber with an ever lasting white head. Light nose of citrus and herbal hops. Palate is wonderful, grapefruit, tropical fruits, and a long lasting gentle bitterness with a great malt backbone. Perfectly in balance. A truly great IPA.
Purple wax bottle purchased at the pub.
