Both this one in New York, NY. Tasted on March 1st, 2009.

Beer pours as a amber color. Some hazyness. Not much head?!... Would have thought to see a bigger head. oh well.

Smell: Hops, Hops and Hops. Floral hops mainly. The smell hit you hard. Very intense and very good.

Taste: Intense taste of hops. More of a citrus hop taste than a pine hop (my favorite). Overall not bad. In the taste, you feel the alcool.

Drinkability: The medium bodied beer. Well at 7%, not a go to everyday beer for me. One in a session is enough too. After one, your palate is all ruined anyway :)

Excellent American IPA. It has a taste similar to the Imperial IPA for La Duchesse here in Quebec. Good beer

Poured into a pint glass and stays true with a massive creamy head which stays consistent throughout the consumption process. Looks like cream on top.

The aroma consists of floral, pine, citrus and grapefruit smells. Very enticing.

A bitter taste which lingers on the tastebuds. There is a noticable malty presence as well. I was expecting a harshness by the look and smell, but it never came. If you're looking for sweetness, no admittance.

Very easy to put back a few of these at a sitting.

A job well done from the Brew Flash crew. This may become a staple in the man fridge for years to come.

Poured from a one pint six ounce bottle into a tall mug and served cool.

Brilliant clear brown body and an off white head

Pine and candy

Pine and woody with some sweet grain aftertaste

Watery and very still

Flavors are nice but the mouthfeel is a bit thin
