4.4/5 rDev +4.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a SA perfect pint:
Appearance: Pours a hazy orange, light brown color with a nice honey comb like head with tremendous lacing and retention.
Smell: Smells very creamy, almost like a creamsical. Very nice citrus, orange, grapefruit and a nice does of pinecone on the nose. Nice pineapple like citrus comming through and a good solid malty backbone. The malt is almost like a cinnabon with its sweetness.
Taste: Initially the beer starts off very full bodied and attacks the palate with intense grapefruit and pinecone flavors. Then it begins to balance out with a bit of honeycomb, pineapple and a slight vanilla wafer like sweetness. Finishes very bitter and hoppy, yet balanced. Very fruity and medium dry on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Nice carbonation, and a nice soapy sweet mouthfeel. Medium dry finish and good mouthfeel.
Drinkability: The abv is above my normal session IPA but its very drinkable. I wouldnt necessarily need food with this, but a nice sharp cheddar or gouda would do wonders for this beer.

the green flash was first tried in philadelphia at ortleibs. a great little place to see good music and enjoy several craft beer options. good people make everything more enjoyable and the staff there were friendly and helpful, and deftly navigating a busy hipster crowd. the green flash delivers mucho hops to your face and leaves your palate covered in it. smells like beer and i like beer smells. this is an ipa that is not for those who don't like ipa's, its an ipa drinkers beer... and i recommend this beer called the green flash.

S: pine and some citrus; hop dominant
T: pine, citrus Some malty sweetness mid-palate and then finishes with a tingling hop resin taste. Hop bitterness prevalent
M: medium bodied; very dry.
