Served cool in a standard pint glass. Cool looking bottle. I had heard good things about this beer and was excited to see it in central Ohio.
Appearance is a hazy amber with some floating yeast. Might be a turn-off for some but I'm OK with this. Nice cream head after pouring that remains throughout.
Smell of piney and citrusy hops. Yum. Sign of things to come.
Taste is great. Exactly what I want from an IPA. Prominent hoppiness with more of the mix of citrus, floral, and pine. Balanced out with the malt just perfectly.
Mouthfeel is a little stick. Just about right. Nice carbonation.
Pretty drinkable. The ABV is noticed only at the end. Balance makes this much more drinkable than many other IPAs I have tried. Will definitely come back to this one.

Just finished a bottle of Green Flash West Coast IPA that I purchased earlier today from Total Wine and More in Richmond. Not much of an IPA selection here in Tappahannock Virginia so I have to make an occasional beer run into "civilization". I consider Bell's Two Hearted ale my favorite IPA, but...Green Flash is running a very close second. Bells better not stumble or Green Flash will take the lead. Upon smelling it the citrus grapefruiit aroma is excellent and the taste lives up to the smell. Very impressive IPA! Very pricey IPA too...but you get what you pay for. Won't let the cost keep me from picking up this excellent ale on my next trip.
