12 oz bottle, no date. Purchased at Tower Atlanta. Test market?

A--Dark red-orange, with stout-like foam and solid lacing.

S--Surprisingly hop-forward, with plenty of Columbus, but with some pleasantly pungent rye notes in background.

T--Wonderfully complex: Initial West Coast IPA meets rye taste gives way to a very strong Mosaic-Amarillo hop finish.

M--Incredibly drinkable with very little alcohol bite despite 9%.

O--It's more about the hops than the rye, which is just fine with me. But the rye provides a nice unique background for a tremendously balanced, ridiculously drinkable 9% IPA. Definitely a West Coast IPA, and a damn good one.

Had this beer in a snifter. This beer is simply delightful... Cherrywood red in color. Nice thick head...Dry hoppy mouthfeel and strong malt presence...Dry finish with the hop lingering.. Very smooth a perfect beer for any hop head out there....Great beer! Green Flash never disappoints... Two thumbs up....
