3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy gold orange color with a large, lingering head. Overwhelming aroma of grapefruit and pine. Very cool smell. Taste has strong malt flavor. Does not taste as much like the pine grapefruit mix it smells like. Some alcohol taste. Great smelling, decent tasting.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
