Flossmoor Station

d0b brought a growler back to split. Thanks, Dave! Freshly Uberhopped (During our Boil) has a straw golden body when backlit but brings along a touch of haziness. When I pull the glass from the light it takes on more of a sunset orange body with some soft pumpkin highlights. A dense white head of two fingers sits atop the body falling rather quickly to a skim coat and solid collar. Small but chunky lacing gets left here and there.

The nose is loaded with hoppy goodness. It's a little applesaucy upfront with a whole host of fruits coming along quickly: candied grapefruit and orange, peach flesh, a little mango tropical fruitiness, and even a hint of banana with some aspirin bitterness. The malt is pale to the core and adds a bit of candy sweetness along with some sugar cookie notes. The hop profile has so many layers I have trouble picking out most.

The flavor follows the nose pretty closely but steps it up a notch. Handfuls of crazy hops nearly boggle the mind with the complexity. You want floral? This beer is for you. Tropical? This beer is for you. Crazy new shit like applesauce and aspirin? Well, you get the point. The pale maltiness is far in back with some of that candy sweetness but never even comes close to getting in the way. There's zero noticeable alcohol, which is impressive for a 9.6% brew.

Bryan hit a homer with the mouthfeel of this brew. It's all at once medium-full bodied but soft and extremely dry on the finish which brings out all that bitter hoppiness. I'm half way through a pint and my tongue is already hurtin'. Like I said before, the alcohol is nowhere to be found.

For the sheer size of this brew it's extremely drinkable. Drinkable to the point of being dangerous actually. The Sahara-like finish, bitter hoppiness and zero booze presence keep this beer flowing like a champ.

If I remember correctly this is the first IPA I've had from Flossmoor that has been this big. The alcohol is superbly hidden and when combined with both the dryness and bitter hoppiness makes for another great brew. That's the way to keep the top shelf IPAs flowing Bryan!
