In the World of IPA's it's an uphill battle for any brewery. Beers like Pliny, Hopslam and Heady Topper dominate an already crowded backfield. That said Green Flash can brew some beer and this IPA is good. I feel that there double Chocolate Stout is there best brew to date but this is a good offering for any IPA lover.

Bottom Line: Drink up! it's good!

A: Hazy orange with a hint of red to it. Very creamy head that hangs around and leaves great lacing on the glass.

S: Hops dominate the nose, as expected. Really wonderful aromas of pine, citrus, and pineapple.

T: Bitter, but backed up better than I expected by the malt. Toasty with a touch of caramel.

M: Medium to full body, very smooth drinking.

D: It's a good solid IPA.
