look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a caramel color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is hoppy, citrus. Taste is big on hops, quite bitter, pine, some citrus, a bit unbalanced for my liking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, while a pretty good beer, I felt it didn't quite live up to the hype., I have had better iPA's.

Poured from 12oz bottle into A pint glass

A - huge head, beautiful, thick nice lacing. head lasted for several minutes. color is light orange brown.

S - aroma released nicely during pour. grapefruit and pine dominate, maybe a touch of vanilla. about what i expected, but always a nice aroma, very little evidence of malt.

T - nice bitterness, pine with less grapefruit than in the smell. more malt coming in. really good example for the style.

M - medium body, carbonation a little less than I expected from the pour. Easy drinking, could see tipping quite a few of these.

O - my first Green Flash. I will be seeking out more of there offerings. Really enjoyable.
