4.1/5 rDev -2.8%
A: Pours a deep brown amber with a thin film of head that quickly dissipates.
S: Deep nose of hops. You can tell that this one is packed. Floral, citrus, pine, grapefruit notes.
T: Very hoppy! 4 types of hops in this monster. Centennial hops give it that piney taste, the cascade for the floral, and simcoe hope contribute grapefruit and citrusy notes. Then BAM a big hop slam right to the palate augmented by the columbus hops. Well balanced by a very evident malt backbone. A very flavorful and character-rich beer.
D/M: Heavy carbonation, medium to heavy texture.

A: pours a brassy orange with a finger of fluffy off white head.
S: Piney with hints of citrus and some herbal notes with just a hint of sweetness. this smells like an IPA should
T: Flavors kick off with some nice herbal notes and a dash of caramel sweetness from the malt. A touch of pine toward the back end. Bitter on the swallow with lingering flavors of pine and herbal notes. A little bit of citrus becomes noticeable throughout the drink as well.
M: full bodied with slightly prickly carbonation.
O: a very well done IPA that is a pleasure to drink.

Green Flash West Coast IPA……. on tap at Pacific Standard in Brooklyn, NY
Appearance-bright vibrant orange cold, gray colored head slowly rises but falls quickly, lots of bubbles, a thick looking brew with lots of body.
Smell-Rush of fruit and pine which shows the hops are here in force. This smell is so pungent that it was really all I could get. Alcohol is there in the background but the hops are the show here.
Taste/Mouthfeel-and so it is. A rushing pine-flavored burn of the tongue that lingers throughout, smoky and bitter in the strictest sense, the burn lingers through and the alcohol doesn’t hit until the very end as it goes down with a large warming sensation.
Drinkability-depends on how much you like hops.
Overall-I’m normally a hop fan, but maybe I’m getting old. This is a crushing blow of hops and while the force is impressive I didn’t enjoy this beer nearly as much as I hoped too. Will give it another try, but disappointed for now.

A 22oz bottle shipped out to the East Coast from Escondido, CA
A - A cloudy copper, with 2 big fingers of head, and a massive sticky lace left all over the glass, all the way down
S - The smell is outstanding. A hop lovers dream. Huge citrus notes, floral. Grapefruit, slight bitter finish. Well balanced...
T - A huge hop wallop up front, with big citrus and piny flavors. Extremely well balanced.
M - Full bodied, very high carbonation! Oily and amazingly hoppy aftertaste.
O - Wow, another damn good west coast IPA. Very happy that Green Flash will be distributing to Georgia very soon. It wil be a regular purchase. If you are a hophead, get this beer if you can...
