A: Cloudy semi-opaque wheat orange body with an off-white head. Looks just like one of RR's Plinys.
S: Huge does of hops; initial smell was of grapefruit, but then quickly morphed into the floral spectrum.
T: The floral hops come out in the taste a lot more. Feel like I'm chewing on some flowers or sourgrass. A hint of sweet malts and caramel behind this, but the hoppiness predominates. Big enough taste that I could have mistaken it for a lighter double IPA.
M: Light, fresh, and round. A great feel for a standard IPA.
D: Wish they didn't serve em in 1/2 pint glasses; will have to try to find some bottles this summer.
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.
