Had this poured into a pint glass, my second Green Flash review. I should preface review saying that imperial ripas are my favorite, and this isn't exception. Rich copper color. Plenty of fresh hop flavor with that nice rye bite on the finish. Outstanding.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into my Unibroue tulip. Best before December 15th, 2014.

A a cloudy, ruddy, burnt orange body is sealed by a lasting peach finger. Sandy lacing, thin tears, superior retention.

Potent aromatics, the nose suffused with spicy, herbaceous, resinous hops balanced by woody faintly grainy malt/rye notes. A slight orange-water floral element sneaks in as well, maybe from dry hopping with Amarillo.

Intensely sweet but with a forward complex bitterness that stands up to the malt bill. Grass, toast, pine, forest floor, peppercorn, jasmine, etc. The rye comes through in the dry earthy finish. Very good.

Rich medium bodied mouthfeel with good carbonation. A touch warming from the alcohol, but still refreshing.

A big, substantial, rewarding flavor bomb, if a bit sweet.
