Minnesota

4.29/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Brownish-copper with decent, light tan head.

Smell: Smells exactly like rye, Amarillo and Mosaic hops. Nice.

Taste: Malt body of caramel, biscuit and toffee. Fairly hoppy as well, tart grapefruit paramount and additional layers of tropical notes, orange and berry. Finish is fairly spicy with lingering grapefruit.

Feel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Fairly dry and crisp finish.

Overall: Nice, big Rye IPA. Dangerously drinkable as well.

Serving type: bottle

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.
