A- Poured into a pint glass. Color is a deep copper. Head is a good one finger and and frothy and sticky looking. Lacing is very sticky.
S- Absolutely wonderful smell. Very fresh with pineapple and grapefruit. This is one of my favorite aspects of the style, such a good citric smell.
T- My oh my. This is one of those beers where the nose tells almost the whole story. There are some IPAs where it may smell citrusy but then you get to the taste and it can be just pure hoppy bitterness, but this beer keeps its citrus flavors even when tasting and its amazing. It has a strong bitter finish which is great but having it start with the citrus bite is a different experience. Defintely one of the best tasting IPAs.
M- Goes down just like I would like any IPA. Has a good bite and leaves me wanting more. Is there alcohol in the beer? I don't get any boozyness, just wonderful citric bitterness.
D- Yes please. Could drink this over and over and wouldn't complain. Love the fact you can buy this in 6 packs. Go get some!

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.
