The majority of the 12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: The beer pouored a dismal head that has reduced to a thin layer. It is an amber copper color with some clarity and tiny bubbles and floaties seen in the beer.
Smell: citrus and pine hoppiness, which is followed by sweet caramel and bready malts.
Taste: The beer has this lingering bitterness that is a bit much. The malt does balance out the hops to a certain extent, but I personally don't remember the bitterness being that bad all the times I have had it on draft.
I waited a few more minutes to let the beer warm up and everything was fine. The super nice maltiness balances out well with the hops. Now this flavor brings back many memories.
Mouthfeel: smooth, medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, and easy to drink once the beer got closer to room temperature.
Overall: Pretty solid IPA by the boys out west. Prefer draft over bottle, but this was still good.

I just keep trying these brews from Green Flash.. first the double stout, now this one - it has a tasty hop explosion on the tongue. The hop flavor notes goes from an intense citrus rind to a heavy leafy herbal to an intense piney/spruce like character and back again somewhat typical of a great hopped beer. The malt adds some supporting sweetness in the beginning with some bready and yeast like notes. There are some peach like fruit notes with maybe even a slight hint of cherry. The finishing hop flavor takes over and coats the plate with heavy citrus and piney bitterness. A beautiful beer.
