Green flash's ipa is very representative of the west coast IPA. Hazy, copper color. Citrusy, hop aroma with notes of roasty malts - mostly pineapple and grapefruit with hints of caramel. Taste followed the smell...huge hop flavor. Grassy, lemony, and piney. I personally would prefer a sweeter finish, as this one was bitter all the way through, but it's still enjoyable. nothing spectacular happening in the mouth - nice amount of bubbles and oily on the way down. Would have liked the bubbles to last a bit longer on the tongue, but again, still enjoyable.
Overall a nice, refreshing beer. Really enjoyed this beer's appearance and aroma. The hops were nice and very noticeable but I enjoy a beer that is a bit more balanced with regards to sweetness. Would definitely try this one again later down the line. Cheers!

This beer is alright, I have had too many great ones lately. But this one is not bad. I need to try the more hardcore ones.
Appearance: Dark golden amber. Some Head but not too much not a bad beer on the above average account.
Smell: Not a lot going on compared to others .But it was a good beer.
Taste: Enjoyable, some hops, actually strong on the hops but it also has a sweet malt backbone that balances things out. Not the best tasting beer that I have had but for a four pack you can do much better, in my opinion.
Overall: I didnt think this was a bad beer but there are better ones too. Solidly above average but not outstanding.
