3.58/5 rDev -15.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
L: Pure gold - hints of red in a fairly hazy body. Fluffy head with good retention.
S: The floral smell hits you right away. Second take is more earthy with a musty finish.
T: This is a pure hop bomb with a very dry finish. Not much balance here, though I do detect just a hint of malts in the aftertaste. The hop flavor is a slight grapefruit citrus, with a little floral flavor filling it out.
M: Well carbonated and true to the style on the mouth.
D: I personally do not desire much more of this one. I consider myself as much a hophead as your average BA, but this beer just seems one-dimensional to me. This is a good example of a hoppy American IPA, and the alcohol is very well hidden, but is not a favorite for me.

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!
