Green flash IMp red
12 oz bottle to pint
A: The brew pours extremely foamy, thought it was a bottle-fermented for a minute. Dark, blood red in color, the giant head never fully recedes.
S: spicy, floral hops are prominAnt, with plenty of boozy volatiles carrying notes of caramel and bread. Strangely the bouquet is fairly subdued.
T: Much more powerful on the palate. Bitter hops right at the tip, astringent and vinous. A huge, nutty malt-backbone quickly pushes back, a little too much, making the end of the sip sticky and chewy. The sweet malted rye borders on cloying, as it finishes longer than it should, with a
sweet sticky residue coating the palate between sips
Another palate wrecker from GF, a bit of a hop bomb, but it's off balance and not the easiest quaff. Probably would've liked this more 4 or 5 years ago but there have been way too many big hoppy beers out of San Diego that are more dialed-in than this.
