Flossmoor's Ahtanamous IPA has a deep, tarnished copper body with some moderate haziness. A few streams of tiny carbonation bubbles jump from the bottom and climb slowly to the surface, each bubble following the last. The eggshell white head grew to two fingers without a problem and left solid sheet lacing on it's way to settling at a thick cap. Each drink leaves behind history lines and thin sheeting.

Although this isn't a new hop variety to me it is new in the fact it's the only hop used so I'm having a hard time putting my finger on the exact aromatics. This is a big, hop driven IPA with a mild caramel and sugar cookie malt spine. The Ahtanum bring a lot of character along for the ride. The first thing that jumps out at me is a semi sweet applesauce, with whispers of pine needles, bubblegum, and aspirin not far behind. The aroma is very unique and mouthwatering.

The nose didn't lie, this IPA is hop driven with the same notes carried over from the aroma. Lightly sweetened applesauce starts things off with the mild caramel maltiness and sugar cookie sweetness. Pine needle bitterness jumps in mid palate and leads the way through with minor waves of bubblegum and some nice spiciness from the hops. Booze adds a touch more spiciness to the mix and they all combine for a good IPA.

Flossmoor does a great job with the bodies on their IPAs, this one is no different. The carbonation brings a little snap as soon as it hits the tongue and then quickly fizzles out to medium bodied and slow moving. The bitterness grows until it achieves a moderate tongue numbing, which lingers for a few minutes after each drink.

The drinkability on this beer is high. The bomber disappears far quicker then I would have liked it to, for the simple fact that I'm already wishing I had more of this delicious IPA left.

This is another great IPA from Flossmoor Station. There are big hops with enough backbone to keep them from running away. If you see any of these Flossmoor IPAs pick them up whenever you get the chance.

A - Pour produces a one inch head that is white with a very light yellow tint to it. It's really soapy with loose bubbles at the sides, but the top looks sturdy and rocky. Nice retention and sticky lacing. Body is orange with a big haze to it. It sort of glows.

S - Lots of hop nose here. Piney bitterness along with that sort of herbal iced tea nose. Big sweet bready malts. Honey.

T - Starts off with lots of sweetness to it. Big bready malts with a nice sweetness. Reminds me of biscuits and honey. Hops are more sweet and hoppy than bitter, but they do bring a nice light bitterness along with them. Orange juice and herbal hops. Sweet hawaiian rolls. Bitterness lingers and gradually increases as the beer warms.

M - Medium to full bodied. Super smooth with soft carbonation.

Overall - As is usual with the stuff Matt brews, this is a winner. Great mouthfeel and rock solid balance.
