4.03/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.

12 oz bottle, best by 11/28/14

2014 formula, 8.1%, 95 IBU

Clear, amber body. Decent amount of head and retention. Juicy, fresh hop aroma with a fairly large caramel malt backbone. Taste is a little bit more malt than I was expecting. Good carbonation.

Have no idea when this was bottled. Seems to be pretty fresh though. A very solid west coast style IPA. Not sure how it stacks up to the old recipe.
