On-tap at BJ's in Escondido, served in a pint glass. I've had this beer tons of times and it's a great go-to for me.
A: Dark orange/yellow with one finger tingly foamy head. The bubbles are very fine. Head retention is good to the bottom and lacing is moderate.
S: Smells a bit like a grapefruit tree and a pine tree made a baby. A bunch of Simcoe hops on the nose.
T: Very piny up front, with a touch of sweetness mid-palate, and finishes with citrusy bitterness. Bone dry on the finish and will leave your tongue a little numb. A classic West Coast IPA that tastes exactly how you would expect, bitter and dry with great, flowery aromatics.
M: It's a medium to light body with stinging carbonation and very dry on the finish. I'd prefer a bit smoother mouthfeel, but still good.
O: I like this beer and will continue to drink it for my hop fix. Good stuff.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
