Draft. There must be some kind of competition between Flossmoor and Three Floyds to make the hoppiest IPA around. This one is pucker-up bitter, with a bitterness that fights with the malt for the chance to curl your tongue. A misty light brown color sits underneath a thin, lacy head. There's a bit of citrus in the aftertaste; then the alcohol content makes itself known in your head… Ooooh, this is wicked cool!
This is anormal IPA not too flashy however try the X IPA (i think tha tid what the name is) that is amazing! MIBRomeo (2579) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 14, 2005
light amber reds small off white thick head nice lacing.. Citrus hop orange peel, lemon grass and touches of carmel. Even palate lightly oily & creamy. Smooth & bitter flavor citrus hop w/ a nice carmel balance and some grass.. simple but very good ipa. ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2003
Sampled at Great Taste of the Midwest. Was labeled "Todd & Bill's Excellent IPA". Aroma a little faint, somewhat hoppy. Head not specatular. Large bubble. Very, very hoppy, nice. Cloying and hard to drink. leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2003
Tried this one at the Oregon Brewers Fest. Cloudy and orange in color. Starts with a hint of orange flavor then builds to a hoppy burst. Quite a sharp and long lasting bitter finish. It didn't knock my socks off. Maybe the beer just doesn't travel well? Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2003
Decent hop aroma. Strong malt body, with a good hoppy taste. Nothing there in terms of bitterness. Solid IPA.

A star at the Oregon Brewer's Fest, outshining many of the West Coast IPAs. Strong bitter flavor, but a very nice taste. beerguy101 (5364) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 28, 2003
Orange gold color. Small head. Aroma is malty with very floral hops, A medium bodied IPA. Malts are nutty and sweet. Hops are grapefruity and slightly bitter. Well balanced. Fairly bitter but balanced by the malt sweetness. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is bitter. iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 22, 2003
Tap: Burnt orange colour, piney, grapefruit rind aroma. . . Lots of hops, light bit of flowers. Very solid palate with a strong bitter finish, lots of orange flavours, with just a hint of malt. Though not quite balanced enough, a great IPA, Thanks Todd. jsquire (4662) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2003
Luminescent orange color with a thin, green tinged head and a huge fresh hop nose. Lots of citrus/grapefruit pineapple flavors. Velvet smooth on the tounge with a lingering bitterness. Great, raw hop beer. Drinking it on the patio only helps the drinking experience. Oakes (19362) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2003
Bright amber. A hoppy aroma, with slightly toasty malts (a common thing with Flossmoor). Long taste of bitter, woody notes, minerals, and a hint of grapefruit.
