A- Rich copper color. Big fluffy white head. There was a little yeast sediment in the bottle that I accidentally poured in, so that was a bit unattractive, but it's my own damn fault, so I can't hate on that aspect. Good head retention and awesome sticky lacing.
S- Really super hoppy awesomeness. Big citrus notes. Huge sweet fruit smells of grapefruit and mango. Spicy citrus zest and a little pine, this beer is about the hops in a big way.
T- Big hop character throughout. There is a sweet tropical fruit flavor along with some spice and a bit of honey and a consistent, solid bitterness throughout. The bitterness isn't over the top, and it isn't bitter for the sake of being bitter; this beer is just bitter because that is what tastes good and it complements the other profiles of the beer amazingly. Awesome beer.
M- Smooth. Good carbonation level. Great mouthfeel. Great beer all around.
O- So good. The smell absolutely blew me away on this dude. The aroma was executed perfectly. The flavor is dialed in. This is just an amazing West Coast IPA. Can't say enough about this beer.

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.
