In this beer blog, we will be drinking a beer from Flossmoor Station Brewing and the beer is called Rail Hopper IPA. Flossmoor Station is located in an old railroad station build in 1906. The brewery opened in 1996 after a ton of work to the old railway station. Today this brewery makes several different beer styles and bottles their beers in 22oz. They have kept up the railroad theme throughout the brewpub. I highly recommend the restaurant if you are not a beer drinker. Let us get into the beer.
This India Pale Ale has a hazel copper color with a white constant head. The smell has a piney to it. The taste has a piney with a dry hop finish. It has a nice fresh hop taste. It is a pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.flossmoorstation.com):

In closing, if you get this beer within its life, it is awesome beer. The hops are not over the top but there are still there living in the beer. It has a great malty backbone to keep you coming back for more. There is not faults in this India Pale Ale unlike most IPAs on the market. I would be careful what you but out in the stores in the Chicago market. I recommend trying this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
