Tap at Flossmoor: Hazy deep amber hue with a small but lasting frothy head and left nice lace upon the pint glass. The aroma has notes of grapefruit, mango, herbal and piney hops, earthy yeast and some white pepper esters. The taste has a nice bitterness and acidity without overpowering. Biscuity malt and hop spice finish rounds into a tasty treat for the palate. The mouth feel is aggressive and biting with a dry finish. A really nice brew and glad to see it was bottled as well.

Cask, DLD. Nice and big with a nose of grapefruit, some pine and citrus. Nice and balanced. Good color and a bit hazy due to the cask. Tasty.

On tap at the brewery pours a hazy dark golden color with a white head. Has grapefruit aroma. Tastes like grapefruit, slight pine, and has a smooth sweet honey finish. This is highly hopped for a IPA. Very tasty.

On tap @ the brewpub. I ended up having a couple of these. Aroma of citrus (grapefruit, orange), pine, wildflower honey malt base. Taste is nicely bitter with lots of of citrus (grapefruit, orange), pine, resiny. A nice honeyish malt base.

22oz bottle. i wasnít expecting to open this but i dropped this on my floor and is started to spit out a bit so i thought this was a perfect time to open it! pours hazy orange with white head. a big fruity hop aroma, pine, grapefruit. flavor is much of the same, all balanced perfectly nothing really over the top and insanely drinkable. awesome stuff.

Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - APR 25, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy amber-orange; served with a thin white skin at the surface. Big nose of huge citric hops and with a faint caramel backing. Medium-bodied and slick with a dry, bitter finish. Big orange and grapefruit hops up front with enough malt support to keep the pleasantly bitter finish in-check. This is one of the best beers Iíve ever had from a brewpub.

Still another great IPA from two guys who just canít seem to make a bad one. Big beatiful cloudy coppery pour with a thick clinging white head. The nose is big citrus and pine from a shit-ton of PNW hops...hey guys, you might want to meter this stuff out, itís going to be a long dry hop shortage. Caramel and toffee notes so substantial that you almost have to chew this beer. Very dry peppery palate towards the finish...might be the big ABV raising itís ugly head. Very high-quality product on every level.

The hop shortage doesnít seem to have hit Flossmoor Station yet. Brewed with Simcoe, Centennial, and Cascade hops, dried hopped with the same along with some Summit and Amarillo hops... This is sinful... and I am thankful! It poured a cloudy amber body topped by a fluffy off-white head that coated the glass with heavy lace. Iím sure there was some malt in there, but the aroma is chock-full of yellow grapefruit, ctirus zest, a pine needle or two, and a slight earthiness... everything I enjoy in a pretty big IPA. The flavorís surprizingly balanced, a malty sweetness coming through in the midpoint. But the hops eventually take over with a peppery heat and a sharp bitterness that lasts long into the dry finish. Another dandy ale by Matt & Andrew.

pours cloudy amber with a medium off-white head. aroma of citrusy hops, grapefruit. flovor is creamy and citrusy bitter. not strong, the 8.5% abv is well hidden. a bit of creaminess before the dry finish. a very enjoyable brew. yum.
