3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet aroma. Citrus flavor with sweet, "juicy fruit" finish. Not as bitter as I was expecting for an IPA but tasty anyway. Medium, sparkly mouthfeel—not too thick. My favorite so far (only the brown ale to go).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Transparent bronze with honey folds. A nice 2 finger off white crown that sits on top, showing some retention and lacing. Perhaps the rye is what puts this one on the darker end of the IPA color spectrum.
Smell: An underlying foundation of rye and perhaps a caramel malt with grassy herbal hops resting on top of it.
Taste: Strong fruity quality from the malt and slight herbal slightly spicy hop tinge. Very balanced.
Mouthfeel: Spot on if you ask me. Medium bodied, a touch chewy, and enough carbonation to get it down nice and easy!
Drinkability: Would have given this one a 4.5 if the ABV was lower.
Another great IPA from Flossmoor Station!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle and served in my GI IPA tulip: Pours a coppery hue with a heavy head and outstanding lace. The aroma has notes of citric and grassy hops, pale biscuity and crystal malts, some salty and minty earthy quality, and moderate rolled rye. The taste has a nice balance between rye snap, fruity twang, slight malt sweetness and some finishing bitterness. There is a slight mineral and chalky tone, tea like tannins that are my only dislikes about this brew. Overall one damn nice rye influenced beer that still allows the base IPA to shine through.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: A dark, rich amber color with about 1.5 fingers worth of white foam.
S: A bit of a spicey aroma, which would seem to be from the rye. The hop aromas tended toward grapefruit with a mild resinous pine scent.
T: The taste starts off a bit slow, mostly malt and rye. It builds to a grapefruit citrus flavor in the middle and finishes with a moderate bitterness.
M: Good carbonation and medium bodied, the transition of flavors makes this very interesting.
D: All the flavors of this beer work together very well to form an easy drinking and very tasty IPA.
