look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Served in a glass out of a 32 oz. growler.

A - Copper hued with a nice, foamy head.

S - Hops, and then some more hops.

T - Much more balanced that I expected for a high IBU ale. The multiple hop varieties give it a complex flavor. Grapefruit, pine, slight mint. Not boozy at all.

M - Smooth, almost velvety. Carbonation is just right.

D - I was going to drink half of this growler and leave the rest for the next day. Well, I only had about 6 oz. left when first session finished. Very drinkable, as long as you like hops.

I purchased this beer on recommendation from the growler store's server. Being a bit of a hop head, I was looking forward to this one, and it is the first I have had from Green Flash. This beer is a great example of what a West Coast, extra hoppy IPA should taste like. I enjoyed it, and will revisit soon. I have been a Lagunitas fan for many years, and now I have become a Green Flash fan as well. I will now look for other Green Flash varieties.

Serving type: growler
