DLD!! Amber pour. Christmas tree and citrus hops in the aroma. I wonder which kind of hops? LMAO. Lots of caramel malt and some syrupy notes. Flavor has the nice grapefruit tones with some herbal and earthy notes and a big malt bill. Good stuff.

nimbleprop (8082) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 6, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2009 Scored this bottle as a bonus in a Dark Lord Day ticket/Dark Lord trade with inkubus27. Bottled as Flossmoor Station Whim Series with White Wax. Pours a hazy, amber, nearly translucent brownish witha frothy, lacing, creamy white head. Great aroma, really displays the simcoe hops well. Lemons, grapefruit, pine, candy, actually reminded me of those cheap orange peanut candies you could get as a kid. Flavor was great, more sweetness, a bit of crackers, the caramel malts come through very nicely and then all hops. Tropical fruits, apples, oranges, flowers, herbs, pine. The whole impression of this beer is sticky, fresh hops. If youve ever brewed with simcoe hops before, you know this is what its like to open a bag and stick your nose in there. Wonderful, I could drink this (fresh) every day.

22, capped and waxed. Thanks, BVC!! Pours a crystal clear bright orangeish medium amber. Dense creamy tan head. Absolutely gorgeous big peach and apricot nose. Creamy medium body. Caramel and biscuit on the mid-palate, underneath tons of delectable peach and apricot. This is a great big DIPA, though the simcoe doesnt taste like the usual heavy acidic grapefruit.

On tap @ Flossmoor. Clear red/amber pour with a medium off-white head. Citrusy hop aroma with a bit of malt balance. Bitter citrus flavor up front, very crisp, and some balancing malt on the back end. Tasty.

Pint poured draft at the mug club tapping (Flossmoor, IL). Excited for Bryans first true solo IPA! Dont know who added this as a DIPA.. but that sounds reasonable. Pours a very nice reddish copper, decent haze, rich color, with moderate tannish head that laces well. Gotta love that FS presentation! Aromas display a rich grapefruit rind and zest, pushing florals and citrus juice with obvious mango presence. Decent bitterness, but also fairly fruity. Light carmel malt underneath, but this really presses grapefruit. Sturdy medium body, moderate bitterness with some decent pine, grapefruity, and mellow mango into the body. Bitterness sticks to the palate, light carmel malt, pushing mango and grapefruit finish and lingering aftertaste. I am a sucker for the tropical fruit IPA hops. Not harsh, more malt comes through after the initial few. Lighter bitterness fare, or well tucked in, but I love the fruit and flavor. Cheers and welcome Bryan!

Bottle shared by ygtbsm94 on 7/3/09: Pours a transparent dark copper amber with a well-lacing wispy off-white head. Aroma of resiny grapefruity hops with some light caramel malt, light fruits and a touch of oxidation. Starts with good fullness and sweet caramel malt with a pretty good resiny grapefruity hoppiness before a drier bittersweet finish. A pretty good IPA, but could be a little fresher and more assertive.

This poured a nice orange color with a big white head. Aroma was tons and tons of resinus piney hops, lots of simcoes. Flavor was much the same, a bit mopre balanced than the aroma but in a good way. Not the most bitter beer in thwe world, but lots of pine and citrus flavors.
