Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2012
cask-like American pale, intense orange hop oil flavours. The carbonation has eased off, and of course hop intensity. Very drinkable,smooth mouthfeel, and I think the 3 plus years has elevated the alcohol as somewhat boozy finish. The sediment was the best.I expected this stored IPA from FlandersNed to evolve into an American barleywine or a vintage ale.

22 oz. bottle from HonkeyBra. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized creamy off white head and sticky lacing. The aroma was almost candy like with tropical fruits and floral notes. The flavor had nice toasted bready malts with a heavy dose of fruits (pineapple, citrus). The finish does get a bit sweet, but I like sweet. Extremely drinkable and I wish I had more.

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2009
In short: A highly refreshing IPA lending towards the tropical fruits side of things. Very nice.
How: Bottle 22oz, green wax. Age unknown but probably fresh and consumed with a few weeks of receiving it from ygtbsm94, thanks a lot Brad.
The look: Very cloudy orange body topped by a medium white head with medium retention
In long: Crisp pale malts offers a sugary sweetness that is 50% caramel and 50% old honey turning sugary. The hopping is of the refreshing type, a little resinous but it is mainly fruity with tangerines, pineapples, grapefruits and such. Hints of green tea. This is an very refreshing IPA and it would be world-class if it wasn’t for this long sweet sugary finish. Another nice twist on the style from Flossmoor, tired of the same-old same-old? Try an IPA for change.

shigadeyo (2962) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2009

3/18/2009: Flossmoor IPA for Change has an aroma of sugary pineapple and hints of mango or something else tropical. The flavor has a really great toasted maltiness with great, soft, juicy citrus pineapple. Overall the flavor is sweet with sugary maltiness accompanied by a great, fresh, juicy hoppiness. Is is fresh, super tasty, and extremely drinkable. This is really just an awesome IPA.

1 Pint, 6 Fl. Oz, dark green wax-topped bottle shared by alexsdad06. Thanks Brad! Rating #39 for this beer.
