St. Florian's Flashover IPA

22oz Bottle with my FW Snifter glass
Noted on 06/19/2014

A: Dark caramel amber color with some considerable hop haze. Thick finger width of ecru cream holds thick and soapy up top. Nice cascade of sticky lace coating the glass all the way down. Looks pleasant and inviting.

S: Bready malt nose filled with gobs of warm toasty malts. Grassy hops with pine and citrus coming together underneath. A touch of stingy booze emits as the other aromas fade. Some florals there but definitely not shy on the malts.

T: Tastes brings forth a robust maltiness with lots of warm bready biscuit flavors and some dark caramel sweetness to it. Citrus and pine hops mingle with a bit of herbal spice. Still manages a very light and frothy experience with a modest bitterness and a good drying finish. Its malt forward yet delicately balanced in that way. Alcohol is better disguised here. Not bad but nothing too spectacular either.

M: Moderate to lighter feel on account of the frothy carbonation. Medium levels of bitterness midway leading up to a nice drying finish. Slightly resinous but mostly clean on the palate.

D: Not your typical West Coast as this one sets out to be more of a PNW style IPA if you will. Forward with lots of toasty malt and biscuit complimented by some common American hops. Not my usual preference but what is nice here is the balance and drinkability. Cool to try this up and comer but probably not something I would go out for again.

Really well balanced. Has a lot of tropical notes and doesnt really hit you with the hops in any part of the palate(front,middle,back)

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a clear dark orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, and earth aromas. Taste is much the same with earth and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop and earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but the smell is slightly better to me.

Serving type: bottle.
