Had on tap tonight at Bar Blues in State College, PA
A: Murky, murky orange copper with a huge fluffly white head that lasts a good five minutes. This is definitely opaque with all the haze.
S: Nice citrus smell but that is all that comes through in the nose for this one.
T: Hops galore! One of the hoppiest beers I have ever had the opportunity to try. Tons and tons of citrus hops that are present from start to finish. The hops balance out well with the malt, but the hops really take over. The finish is rather dry.
Overall, a spectacular IPA from Green Flash. Try this if you are in the the mood for tons of hops!
Serving type: on-tap

Served into a tulip glass.
This West Coast IPA,should be the standard that IPA's should be brewed to. Cough.. (ranger)
A= Looks good, nice cloudiness, and a nice burnt orange hue. Short head retention, with bubbly lacing.
S= HOPS, citrus, grapefruit a product of the Simcoe hops, not grassy.
T= Blast of flavor, a nice layering of hops coming out from the taste. The Columbus hops show true with this pungent taste.
M= Stays on the tongue for a long time, taste come through a minute of two after sipping. Creates a nice way to taste the beer more slowly.
D= The drinkablity is good. Not a fast drinker, due to the nice mouthfeel, you want to wait for the post-taste, from the Cascade hops, leaving a nice flower taste. But a great beer that will have your senses coming back for more.
Overall= wow, this is up there with the best of the IPA's, next to stone Ruination, Lagunitas Maximus and DFH 90 minute. Great beer, love the flavors, resin from the hops and all around drinkablity.

My parents brought this one back to me all the way from the Papago Brewery in Arizona. Thanks!
This one pours out of the bottle a deep bronze, with a slow-churning head that creates an absolutely gorgeous meringue effect on the top of the glass. This fluffy beer-cloud leaves a remarkable trail of stick to the glass.
The nose is all shades of hops; fruity, citrusy, zinc-y, metallic, and green/herbal. Completely one-sided, but completely appealing.
The taste is more of the same, a dank hop-slap of insane bitterness. While this does go over-the-top a little bit - my mouth was aflame with alpha acids - I did enjoy this much more than some of the even more unbalanced IPAs I have been drinking. Hop burps could be ignited.
A slight astringency (batteries, pennies, metal) takes away from this and sends it towards the hop-tea pile of West-Coast IPAs. Still, an intense change of pace that I could definitely enjoy from time to time.
