Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #51 (April 2011):
New season of baseball, so a new version of Green Monsta is only fitting. Hops help out big time with the spectacular- looking head, and the brassy color underneath shows only a faint haze. Spicy, herbal and citric hop trio in the aroma; hint of ripe fruit and bread crust as well. Dry, more refined smoothness is quickly met by the semi-brash bitterness and sharp citric and oily herbal hop flavor. Suggestion of pears and mangoes in the middle from the alcohol. Maltiness is a little slim and certainly dry, with a light biscuity tone in the bitter dry finish. The American IPA style is a tough crowd—drinkable and hoppy are two things going for this beer.

Consumed directly from can.
A - Can't really tell from the can, but looks to be a pale yellow color.
S - Very floral and earthy, with hemp, dandelion, and a bit of tropical melon.
T - Actually less potent than the scent. First grassy, spicy, hop flavors. Then a wave of malt sweetness followed by a touch of tropical melon and citrus flavors. The finish is fairly dry and bitter.
M - A very lively carbonation lifts up a medium, semi-creamy body.
O - While there is nothing exceptional about this beer, there is also nothing at all outputting about it either. It seems content not to swing for the fences, but still succeeds overall. It is an enjoyable sumertime IPA to have while camping, fishing, or, as the name suggests, watching a baseball game.
