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.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass thanks mike at brawley

appearance: medium amber with some rustyn orange. thin head that is very foamy and white with lots of bubbles

aroma: juicyfruit, pine and just sweet delicious hops, im getting centennial big time

taste: this beer hits your palate strongly and stings the whole tounge. rampant bitterness, however controlled with a flavorful malt that exhibits some characteristics of apricot and citrus. the hops clearly, clearly dominate finishing bitter, but hoppy pleasurable bitter and makes you want that next sip.

overall: awesome IPA, one of my favorites and ive had as many as I have been able to get my hands on. If it wasnt for the abv id say its an awesome session beer since its so tasty and pleasurable to drink. If you like IPA's, this one is an absoulte must try.

Pours a cloudy orange color, nice carbonation, nice small off-white head which lasted awhile, some nice islands and sticky lacing throughout the drink. The nose is slightly sweet, hoppy, slightly malty, grapefruit, and some caramel. The taste is hoppy, and plenty of grapefruit/caramel going on. The finish is slightly dry. Medium body. Very drinkable, I heard many good things about this IPA for about a year now, well it is a mighty fine IPA at that, will definitely buy more of this in the future.
