A- Pours a clear, golden color with a rocky 2-finger head that leaves rings of lacing down the glass.
S- Very clean and crisp-smelling. Pine hits the nose first with a sweet resin aroma. Hints of bitter grapefruit rind come through as well.
T- Not as well-balanced as I would have immagined. It's very bitter with pine dominating the flavor. There's a subtle grapefruit flavor, but grapefruit rind, not flesh, which I've never seen in an IPA before. There's almost no sweetness.
M- Very clean and crisp, but it's missing a "juiciness" that I like in IPAs.
D- Definately not a session beer, but pretty enjoyable to sip on.

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
