The thing that I like most about the appearance of this beer is the creaminess of the head. It foretells of a loaded beer that has a slightly syrupy viscosity and delicate but ample carbonation.
The smell of cascade hops is immediately pleasant. The smell of cascades always gives me a strong craving for beer, but it's a very welcome craving. It smells very sweet and flowery
The taste is anything but neutral. It starts sweet and floral and has a strong lingering botanical bitterness that is only momentarily cleared when you take the next sip. It's like this beer is engineered to increase your sipping rate. Pine, solvent citrus, and some alcohol are present upon exhalation.
IMO, this is the best widely distributed IPA in California.
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.
