flossmoor station restaurant & brewing celebration ipa

Celebration IPA by Flossmoor Station Restaurant & Brewing is an American IPA. The uniqueness of this IPA is that it is brewed once, put on tap and/or bottled with colored wax to distinguish, and then they change the recipe. I like the idea as it gives the brewer a chance to let a piece of himself shine through based on how well each of the beers are received.

The bottle had purple wax to help me denoting that it free run 3.0 v4 femmes was their Celebration IPA offering (their webiste lists the colors and beers). The beer poured dark amber and cloudy with ample, tan, frothy foam. The aroma of citrus hops, even some floral hops with a big malt backbone: bread/dough. I believe the malt came through more based on the age but nonetheless still a very good beer. I wish I could have had Celebration IPA when it was fresher.

No matter, Flossmoor Station continues to impress with their American craft beer offerings and there is good chance I will be heading out there today 🙂 Enjoy!
