COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flashback Anniversary Ale is an India Brown Ale with 6.8% ABV. This is the first beer we’ve made here that uses one single hop variety (Cascade) in the recipe in five separate additions. The fresh Cascade hop aroma and flavor is perfectly balanced with the dark roasted grains, making Flashback a very unique beer. We’re calling it an India Brown Ale to help illustrate its flavor to the consumer. It’s hoppy like an IPA but dark and roasty like a Brown Ale. Put them together and voila! Flashback at its finest!

We at Boulder Beer Company are SO excited to announce the release of our 30th Anniversary commemorative beer...Flashback Anniversary Ale! Flashback will be available in 4/6/12oz cases, 15.5 gallon kegs and 5.16 gallon kegs. It will be available to ship beginning Monday, May 4th and will be available through September.

Paying homage to our roots and celebrating our milestone 30th Anniversary, we give you Flashback Anniversary Ale, an India Brown Ale single-hopped with five additions of Cascade hops. Citrusy with a prominent hop aroma, Flashback finishes clean, crisp and dry, with dark roasted flavors from the biscuit and chocolate malts perfectly complimenting the bountiful Cascades.

Flash back to 1979 and you’ll find two professors at the University of Colorado in Boulder longing for the full-flavored tastes of the British ales they had grown to love while traveling overseas. Testing the entrepreneurial waters with a little project called a microbrewery, they began brewing and selling a few of their own. There begins the tale of Boulder Beer Company, Colorado’s First Microbrewery. From the original Bitter, Porter and Stout recipes that founded our brewery to our exciting new releases, Boulder Beer continues to uphold our tradition of innovation in brewing.

Flashback Anniversary Ale is the 9th Release in our Looking Glass Series of specialty beers. Discover all of our award-winning beers at BoulderBeer.com.

Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - AUG 13, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists of of light chocolate, caramel, citrus hops, and a touch of nuts. It’s a transparent copper with a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker. There is a nice sheet of lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate chocolate and caramel with a hint of fruit. The finish has light citrus/grapefruit with a touch of roasted nuts. It’s light bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

This is a great bastard child of a beer. The hops of an IPA with a hint if the roasts of a brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopmelt (197) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Pours clear, medium chestnut, half finger creamy head, nice lacing. Aroma slight chocolate, bready, caramel malt, floral hops. Taste a bit bitter floral and earthy hops, bready malt and slight caramel. Mouthfeel medium body lower carbonation, slight hop bite, dryish finish. Overall tasty, balanced, not quite brown ipa, perhaps brown bitter, maybe imperial bitter mild?

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2014
On tap at the Field House. Aroma is pine cone, biscuit, and walnut. Pours brown with a nice big frothy head. Taste is an odd mix of pine hop and dirty nut shells. Overall the two tastes clashed more than they complemented. Hard to swallow.

Great Brown Ale. Hoppy like India Pale Ale, though is more mild on the toungue, so it makes this beer more drinkable. Prominent beer.

Tap at Parlor City. Pours clear dark brown. Thin off white head. Bitter nutty taste. Dry bitter aftertaste.

3.3
hotstuff (5141) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2014
Rated on 7-08-2011 (Bottle at Hall’s Tavern at Coventry-Fort Wayne, IN) This bottled beer pours a medium sized tan head that mostly diminishes, transparent copper body, fizzy carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, biscuits and citrus hops. The taste is bitter, caramel malt, some chocolate, citrus hops, and has a dry finish. The mouthfeel is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. The hops are upfront in the flavor, but not over the top hoppy tasting. This is a beer I would drink again.
