4.25/5 rDev +0.7%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
12oz bottle served in a pint glass.
pours a clear, medium amber / copper shade with a big, creamy / frothy 2+" beige head. great retention and sticky lacing all over the place. IMHO if not a picture-perfect looking brew, close to it.
fragrant nose starts with a wallop of citric and pine hops, followed by some subtle caramel malt notes. nice.
flavor delivers on that promise with heavy citric / pine hoppy characters, secondary notes of floral hops and the malt. bit more malt presence than i'd have guessed going off the aroma. medium bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation.
overall, a very nice IPA. while there is a malt presence, make no mistake this one showcases an array of hops, both first and foremost. quite enjoyable. only caveat here is that these tend to hang around a while, and freshness is paramount.

4.03/5 rDev -4.5%

A: darker amber slightly cloudy, nice white head with some thickness too it and really nice lacing
S: The beers strong point. A great very balanced smell. You get the citrus and the piney hop smell along with a nice malty/caramel backing. Really good.
T: Taste is the unfortunate downside of the beer. Follows the smell well with some citrus mostly grapefruit combined with some very strong hops. You can taste the malt in the mid but the finish of this beer is very bitter and leaves a strong not so great after taste on the tongue.
M: Not too great. Carbonation is good but has a sticky kind of thick feeling to it.
O: My first green flash beer and while pretty good, i wanted better.
