A: Hazy orange amber in color. Pours with a finger or two of orange tinted white head that has decent retention and leaves some lacing. However, I will say I've had a few of these and there is some inconsistency between the bottles, with some having smaller heads and little retention and others being somewhat more lively.
S: Massive pine resin and absolute hoppy goodness. Grass. Green and dank. Lightly floral.
T: Respectable malt background with an aggressive bitterness. Resiny hops. Pine. A nice residual astringency lingers on the top of the tongue.
M: Medium body with medium carbonation. Dry.
D: Excellent. This is what an IPA should aspire to be. Full of chewy hop flavor, balanced by just enough malt to allow all the hops to shine through. An aggressively bitter beer that I can only imagine most people would not care for, but an otherwise damn fine 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.
Serving type: on-tap
