Rich copper color beer under tight etching head that lasts. Nose is tropical fruits under citrus; grapefruit, lemon-peel, tangerine, pine is subordinated.
Taste is bitter when cold, warms to release some sweet malt, but the predominant taste is tropical and grapefruit hops. Just enough malt to balance the bracing bite.
Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, and could stand to be fuller-bodied, but I quibble. Thanks to Binny's in Skokie: I got the last four pack in the store--there were three cases of the hop head red. So nice to have fresh West Coast for direct comparison.

the green flash was first tried in philadelphia at ortleibs. a great little place to see good music and enjoy several craft beer options. good people make everything more enjoyable and the staff there were friendly and helpful, and deftly navigating a busy hipster crowd. the green flash delivers mucho hops to your face and leaves your palate covered in it. smells like beer and i like beer smells. this is an ipa that is not for those who don't like ipa's, its an ipa drinkers beer... and i recommend this beer called the green flash.

Poured 12oz bottle into tulip glass
A: dark honey color with decent head that produces heavy lacing with every swallow.
S: pine and some citrus; hop dominant
T: pine, citrus Some malty sweetness mid-palate and then finishes with a tingling hop resin taste. Hop bitterness prevalent
M: medium bodied; very dry.
O: great IPA with some unique qualities in the subtle malt intertwined with big hop flavors and that tingling sensation from strong hop bite at the palate's end. Great IPA!
