A: Pours a completely translucent amber with about a half finger of slightly off-white head. The foam takes a bit to settle as a frothy ring along the edges of the glass start to appear. Good lacing as it drinks.
S: The nose is light malt and mild citrus. It's also a bit dank. Lots of skunky bitters, but nothing too overwhelming.
T: The first sip is a wonderful marriage of sweet and spicy. I get mild malt and a good helping of spicy hops. However, they are in such great balance that neither flavor dominates. This beer remains constant in flavor from start to finish. No big changes in it's profile. The finish smooth and clean.
M: Medium bodied beer. Sweet, but not too sweet. Hoppy but not too hoppy. It envelops that palate but moves of nicely. Not too sticky, but not exactly light either. Hoppy bitters remain in the mouth for quite a time after the beer is gone.
O: This is a wonderful IPA. The hops are there and it's bitter, but it's not too much to to stinging. The balance on this beer is perfect. Solid. Really solid. This would be a great beer for new beer drinkers that are starting to get into the IPA category. A beer that won't destroy the palate but will showcase that bitter/spicy quality that hop heads grow to know and love.

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.
