This brew poured a cloudy orange color with some sediment floating in it. The head was a full two fingers and pure white. It dissipated relatively quickly, leaving mild lacing on the glass. On the nose, I got lots of fresh hoppy goodness with some citrus as well. This smelled like something that I’m really going to like. On the first sip, I get some definite hops with grapefruit flavors, but more intense than I expected. It was also a bit on the oily side towards the end. Pine came up next. Hops definitely overwhelm the palate and the malt gets lost, which is totally fine by me. The moderate carbonation really went well with the flavors of the beer. The finish lingered for awhile with the sticky, grapefruit flavors. Also, the booze was really well hidden in the brew. I could put away a few of these without any problem. I would definitely have this again. This is a brew that really helped my hop head craving.

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.
