Sampled at my bro's house who has WC frequently on tap in his kegerator...and for good reason.
A: Pours a darker pale color. A burnt caramel color if you will. Almost orange-ish even. Very clear, bubbling away. Mine had little to almost no head - just some choppy bubbles. Go figure. Lingering lace.
S: Intense lemon zest and citrus aromas all the way. Like Spring time in the orchards. Faint hints of caramel malt once the brew settles out a bit.
T: Sweet candied citrus fruits, sticky greens and pine resin. Outstanding hop zing on the palate that puckers out leaving you dry and thirsty for another sip. Slight caramel and malt components that hold the brew together. ABV is a creeper on this one.
M: I would say moderate overall. A good balance of creamy deliciousness that is slightly sticky on the tongue but finishes dry and crisp.
D: So good. Big hop profile but well balanced As I mentioned before the ABV is a creeper here. I probably should try to practice better restraint when at my brothers house.
I must say some super fresh West Coast is pretty unparralleled. A quintessential hop forward West Coast style IPA. Pretty much put GreenFlash on the map. One of my top 5 IPA's for sure.

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.

Poured 12oz bottle into tulip glass
A: dark honey color with decent head that produces heavy lacing with every swallow.
S: pine and some citrus; hop dominant
T: pine, citrus Some malty sweetness mid-palate and then finishes with a tingling hop resin taste. Hop bitterness prevalent
M: medium bodied; very dry.
O: great IPA with some unique qualities in the subtle malt intertwined with big hop flavors and that tingling sensation from strong hop bite at the palate's end. Great IPA!
