Green Flash's IPA was a dark amber, with a nice frothy head. Lace was thick and notchy as I drank this one (too quick, and I wish I had another).

Very nice juicy hop aroma spewed from this one. Complex notes of juicy grapefruit and orange, pine resin, and marijuana all worked well together. Not too far behind, the malt backing lurked with the expected sweet and toasty tones. Well balanced and well done.

The taste was equally as excellent. Very sharp hop profile was loaded with floral and pine, a quenching grapefruit character kept it mouth watering. The malt was further behind in the taste as it was in the flavor, but it's presence was appropriate. Awesome.

The body wasn't lacking either. Smooth and mouth coating, the carbonation had excellent crispness but didn't take away from the silky yet sticky dry character. Too much to talk about, well made beer.
