Got this on a trade today with 14 other IPA's - hallelujah! This is my first green flash brew and it's looking good.
Pours a clear copper color, two finger offwhite head that settles to half a finger and leaves plenty of lacing down the glass. Carbonation is soft.
The smell is quite nice. Lots of floral pine with a touch of sweetness.
Taste is pretty textbook.. some caramel like sweetness, a touch of fruit and then it gets progressively more bitter. Plenty of pine hops towards the end. It's good.
Mouthfeel is silky smooth but for my tastes it's a bit strong to be sessionable. Overall a good beer though!

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!
