Amber orange in color with a bit of cloudiness. A millimeter thin layer of foam rests on top. I've had this before but it's been awhile. Fantastic intense grapefruit like hop aroma. Best smelling IPA I know of. Pretty smooth mouthfeel with a bit of hop stickiness. Intense hop flavor is well balanced with a light malt backbone. Love this.

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.
