22 oz bottle into Sierra Nevada IPA glass

A - Pillowy fluffs of light khaki foam pile atop this light amber colored beer. Major head retention, lots of lace patches left on the glass. Beer is nice and clear, very good looking. The foam reminds me of Duvel.

S - Aroma is mild. Sweet notes of caramel with some citrusy hop aroma.

T - Wonderful caramel malt backbone, with a nice hop bitterness. Hops are "green" with citrus and resin. Could be hoppier, but still appropriate for style.

M - Pretty smooth. A nice lingering hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Light and refreshing.

O - I have never heard of this brewery before. Looks like they just opened this year (in January 2013) and I thought I'd give it a shot. It's a very nice IPA. I tend to prefer them more hoppy, leaning towards the DIPA scale, but this beer does a great job at being what it is. The foam reminded me of Duvel, the flavor reminded me of Fuller's ESB - but definitely with more hop presence. This beer is definitely worth trying and I really look forward to more good things from this new brewery.

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. (1,483 characters)

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) (134 characters)
