Giving green flash west coast ipa a go tonight

A- hazy amber with fluffy head of foam that slowly recides leaving traces of lacing on the edges of the glass. A thin layer of foam lingers leaving a hazy impression at the top of the glass

S- good tropical aromas are channeled to the front of the glass. Pineapple and mango are the most lingering fruit themes while a bitter scent shows up partly through. It's pungent, but not to the extreme

T- very piney and bitter flavors spike the tongue as it combines with the tropical flavors. Very driven towards the obvious west coast theme of hop forward tropical citric themes. Topping it off with bitterness makes for a delicious brew

M- prickly hop flavors tacking the tongue and palate

O- A good west coast ipa that is certainly worth grabbing from time to time

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a hazy amber color, with a large inch and half light yellow head with good retention and great lacing.

Aroma is great. A huge hoppy nose showing grapefruit and a slightly spicey note.

The taste is good, but not as good as the aroma would indicate. Slightly citrusy, but a balanced malt feel comes through with an impressive bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and gently carbonated.

Drinkability is moderate. A nice IPA indeed.
