Notes/Commercial Description:
Flagraiser IPA is a big, hoppy tribute to the unfurling of the Grand Union flag atop Prospect Hill in Somerville, MA on January 1, 1776. This ale celebrates our passion for hop aroma and flavor balanced with just the right amount of malt.

Huge aroma and resin-y flavors from the elusive Galaxy hops are the signature of this beer. Built on a solid base of pale malts, this double IPA makes generous use of hops from Columbus, Crystal and Galaxy with the Galaxy hops taking the lead during ten days of aggressive dry-hopping.

22oz bomber in a pint glass.

A- Hazy copper-orange color with a 1-plus F head, off-white. Rings of lacing coat the glass.

S- Lots of sweet malt and some citrus hop in the background.

T- Pale and caramel malt flavors dominate, Faint hop flavors, mostly citrus.

M- Big full body, sweet and malty. But little, if any, hop tang.

O- More American pale ale to me.
