Poured from a 650 ml bottle, into a standard pint.
A: Dark golden hue. Pours about a 2 finger, frothy, white head. Dry, cratering head, deteriorates slowly, and unevenly. Leaves a thick blanket of foam on the surface. Very nice spider web lacing. Head renews fully with each pour.
S: Papery, with a little pine. A little fresh grass and some floral components.
T: Very piny, with a slightly sweet floral component. That papery (from lack of better term) that comes out in the nose, comes thru in the flavor as well; adding a kind of earthy nature.
M: Bitter and piny in the front, sticks to the palette and lingers throughout; dry in the finish. Thick syrupy feeling body.
D: Better to sip and savor, but can disappear quickly.
Atmosphere is really strong. Nice dark hue, thick frothy head, and some very solid lacing. Nose is earthy and piny with some fresh grassy and floral components. Thick and syrupy with a slight sweet and earthy flavor to balance out the dry piny hop. Well-balanced. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

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.
