Slumbrew Flagraiser IPA – Fairgrounds Wine and Spirits

By Brian Lemay No comments

How are you today, welcome back to FairgroundsTV,
I’m your host Peter Moeller. Today we have Slumbrew, from Ipswitch Mass is where it’s
brewed. It’s from Somerville brewing.
Apparently it used to be a little in disarray so they used to call it “Slumerville”.
It’s their Flagraiser IPA, it’s dry-hopped its got galaxy hops and actually it says it
right here. Galaxy hops and crystal, 5 grains, sounds cool, sounds like a good blend.
Nice dark orange. Pretty large carbonation, not much head to
be spoken of. Let’s give it a sniff. Oh, grapefruits.
Big grapefruit, like grapefruit, grapefruit rinds maybe a little bit of passion fruit.
Or something to that effect. Let’s give it a sniff.
Hm. Now. If you’ve watched this FairgroundsTV
before, you know that I’m not a big fan of IPAs.
They’re usually very chewy to me, and they stick on the back of my tongue, I’m just not
a big fan. However. This is nice.
It’s not too over the top, it’s not, it’s mild enough for me, it’s not sitting on the
back of my tongue too much, it’s got some nice fruit, little bit of grapefruit, nice
tropical fruits, kind of like a nice tropic fruit too. This is great.
This is very well put together. We just got this today, I think it’s been
floating around for a little while. I say give it a check out.
It’s at the store, it’ll be in the box at the end of the aisle.
And, I hope we’ll see you soon.
