2.5/5 rDev -40.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2
A: medium amber, almost grepefruity red ting to it. Rather inviting
S: a lot of grape fruit here with a distinctive hoppy aroma
T: Very, very, very heavy handed bittering hops. Has a light fruity (Grapefruit) back taste, but its overwhelmed by the intense hoppyness. and that's the problem. this brew used too much bittering hops and not enough malt, making a very unbalanced beer that I find rather difficult to drink
4.5/5 if you want a unbalanced overly bitter brew
Mouthfeel: very light and difficult to describe as the hoppy bite makes it hard to tell anything about mouth-feel
Lets be frank, I'm not a fan of this beers taste and mouth feel. Its too heavy handed with its hops and comes out more like hop tea than beer to me.
If that's what you want then you will like this one
that's not what I look forward to with a beer
without that malt sweetness to counter the bitterness I jut cant enjoy this beer
if you can enjoy that kind of beer, you will like it.
just remember, maltheads and those weak against bitterness should just order something else.

Was looking forward to this beer from Green Flash. Overall, not that impressed. Purchased in a 4 pack and tasted over two nights to give it a couple chances. Appearance was cloudy and smell was just ok. Was expecting a little more as Green Flash typically delivers. A little too bitter for me.

4.31/5 rDev +2.1%

Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with a slight red cast. Very strong head with exceptional lacing. The nose is a blend of hops - grapefruit and other citrus over a light pine resin overlaying a subtle malt sweetness. The body is almost medium with a nice smooth texture. Normal carbonation level. The outstanding flavor profile is complex and well balanced. Like the nose, grapefruit and other citrus lead with an earthy pine in the background. A biscuit malt sweetness appears in the middle, which rapidly flows into a quite nice tart bitterness. The finish is smooth and a nice tartness lingers. A bit more carbonation effervescence would accentuate the flavor of the finish and the underlying hop resin.
