I guess I should have reviewed this last week... ah well...
2 fingers of super white head, super sticky lacing and just a nicely constructed head on all counts, clear orange hue with an organized filing of bubbles making their way (in an orderly fashion) to the top, a very nice looking IPA
nice mix of orange and herbal notes, caramel notes in the back, the dry hopping is definitely coming through, although this is not some dali of fantastic fascination it smells great to this schnozola
sort of oily (hop) with medium mouth feel, the carbonation is flawless, there is a nice bite of prickly bubbles and they carry through the sip, the balance here in flavor is key, you get everything you want in an IPA
-good hop flavor
-balanced sweetness without being too sweet
-bitter finish that lingers
---and you want another sip
the hops have a great role here, they play off the malt nearly perfectly, you get immediate citrus and then later the nice bittering that never quite overpowers the malt, the ABV is also just right
excellent. I will keep my eye out for this in the future, hopefully on tap!

Slumbrew Flagraiser IPA has a very thick, off-white head, an opaque, bubbly, orange appearance, with many noticeable tan particles roiling about, and a very heavy lace curtain left on the glass. The aroma is of white bread, sweetness, and citrus, and the flavor is of those elements, with grapefruit and increasing bitterness as the sip settles out. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and Slumbrew Flagraiser IPA finishes mostly dry, rather drinkable, and not the least bit alcohilic.
