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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottled 11-2011. New arrival to Chicago market. Served in a pint glass.

Bright orange, good clarity, lasting white foam leaves a permanent skim on the surface. Ever present rising carbonation. Classic look to it.

Sweet candied citrus peel, bready shortbread sweetness, light spice. Caramel specialty malt, sticky sweet as it warms, almost cheesy.

Resiny dank hop bitterness, leafy green, lightly spicy. Caramel and bread heaviness, medium to full bodied with a low to medium carb level. Dry bitter aftertaste of pine and citrus peel. A slightly sweet and resiny IPA, fairly big at 7.8%. Would drink again, though its a little sweet and full bodied.
