Bomber, light pink wax: Slightly hazy golden hue with a fading fluffy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of acidic fruits and resiny hops, minerals, crystal and pale malt, some pepper and clove. The taste is quite heavy grapefruit and mango upfront supported by an equally heavy dose of resiny bitterness and chalky yeast note. A spicy and herbal finish. The mouth feel is agressive and lively, the alcohol is dangerous well hidden. A classy DIPA, wish I had another bottle. Beerlando (3343) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2009
Pink wax dipped bomber. Pours a lightly hazy, medium golden amber hue. A frothy head of beige tinted foam shows good retention, settling slowly to a thick, bubbly film. Solid sheets of lacing coat the glass very well. The aroma is bursting with citrus, notes of fresh grapefruit, orange, and lemon hops coming across bitter and sharp, with a light toffee malt base and hints of orchard fruits. Flavors are structured the same, strikingly bitter and citric, big on grapefruit, with a soft toffee background. Medium bodied and crisp, finishing sharp and semi-dry, the palate drinks easy for the heft of the brew. Very nice stuff. Fresh and ultra-hoppy.

22 oz bottle. Cloudy yellow brown with a pocked white head. Nose is pineapple, grapefruit juice and pine. Crisp and juicy medium light with lively carb. Taste is lemon and orange with touches of banana sweetness. Gets bitter with grapefruit peel and resin. Hoppiest of the Flossmoor IPAs i’ve tried. markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2009
Thanks fishingnet for the share. Pours hazy yellow with an off-white head. Nose is prickly rye, malt, light fruit, honey, and love. Flavor is malt, rye, honey, floral hops, goodness, magic, and citrus. It attacks and does not let up and it is an enjoyable assault on the palate. mreusch (858) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - SEP 28, 2009
22oz. bomber, with I guess kind of a dull pink wax. Another thanks to FlssmrBrewAlum! Pours a hazy golden with a moderate white head. Aroma leads with floral, followed by some pine, citrus, grapefruit rind and some earthy grass. Flavor has a nice sharp bitterness, with more floral, citrus and grapefruit rind, and tempered back with a hint of caramel malts. Sure doesn’t feel like a DIPA, as it’s highly drinkable and the alcohol is well hidden. Very tasty stuff, and my favorite IPA/DIPA from Flossmoor to date, thanks again Adam!

Bottle courtesy of fishingnet. Poured a hazy golden orange color with a tall white head. Big hop presence in the nose imparting floral and citrus notes. Definitely caramel and pine in the aroma as well. Pretty full bodied with a smooth mouth feel and ample carbonation. Flavor is sweet caramel, pine, citrus, and some grass. Finishes dry with a good amount of hop bitterness. jcwattsrugger (12525) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 20, 2009

Poured Orange. Nose is floral, sharp citrus and pine hops with big sweet caramel. Flavor is perfectly balanced flowery resiny sticky hop goodness. Loads of grapefruit, and pine, flowers. Loads of sweet toasty malted caramel. The best of the waxed Flossmoor IPAs i’ve had so far. frankenkitty (2014) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2009
Mostly clear, deep golden under a largish white head which faded quickly. Sharp, sharp pine resin nose allows very little else to come through. Mouth is mostly pine and pepper carried in a sticky, honey-thick body. Dry finish, low alcohol late. Hop-heads should enjoy, I found it a little overpowering and one-dimensional. ~~~~~~~~~~ On draught, Flossmoor Station Restaurant & Brewery, Flossmoor, IL.

Bottle from In Fine Spirits. Pours a hazy gold with a foamy head. Nose is instantly Amarillo, then the other hops come through with piney apricot notes and distinct C-hop notes. Taste is some what earthy, very deep bitterness that is super smooth. Mild malt backbone as well. Pretty damn tasty stuff, really...
