A beer I've been wanting to review for quite some time as I love IPA's and this is something I havent had a whole lot of.

Pours a deep orange with a white head that falls fast, murky and full of sediment, just how i like my IPA's

Smells like the dankiest hops around, big citrus and weedy, grassy hops in abundance in the nose, with a wiff of caramel as this is 7.3% alc.

Tastes like a malt bomb of an IPA with a punch of bitter hops as one might expect from a double IPA. Very malt, bread, and hop driven, with citrus zest, pine, a tad of oak from I don't know where, just a grassy citrusy IPA, very well done.

mouthfeel is above average, its well carbed and has plenty of taste per sip balance.

I like it, havent had too much, but I should revisit more.

Poured Green Flash West Coast IPA into a Belgian Tulip.

A - Pours a hazy dark orange with a finger and half of off white head.

S - Getting smooth tropical notes on first sniff. Grapefruit, citrus, hop resin, a touch of coconut.

T - The hop bomb explodes on first taste. Pine needles, grapefruit, hop resin. The brew has a little citrus mid palate with more hops on the finish.

M - Medium mouthfeel, with medium carbonation.

O - Hop heads unite, yep this one's for you. Cheers!
