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.

I like this beer but man is it bitter, I mean really bitter. Especially the finish, it lingers a litte to long for my taste. I prefer it with food, by itself is a little much. Definitely worth trying though.

Poured out of the bottle with a medium aggressive pour this orange-brown beer produced a fairly nice off-white head which settled to a thin lace after about 5 minutes or so. Has an ever-so-slight haze to it when held up to the light.

Smells of flowery hops as well as some piney notes fill the nose.

Taste is hoppy, but not over the top. The thing never goes away, which leaves very little room for any malty flavors to sneak in.

Drinkability is pretty good being that it's 7.3%. I could see myself getting into trouble with these.

Morey's Bottom Line: A well made Ipa to say the least. It reminds me of Weyerbacher Double Simcoe and Sierra Nevada's Torpedo a bit.
