Found my second Green Flash offering at Wegmans (6 pks in PA, what a dream!) and was excited to give it a shot!

A: Poured a cloudy amberish orange with a foamy, creamy head that settled into a thin bubbly, sudsy lacing, minimal amount of sticking.

S: Very easy to tell that this is a west coast IPA, very hoppy, pine, resiny, grapetfruity, spicy, and floral.

T: Very west coast hop tasting, piney, spicy with a little earthy tobacco leafiness, sweet fruity and a balancing sour grapefruitiness, a subtle floral, resiny, oily in the finish, a grainy maltiness that is very much in the background, and a leafy, piney, fruity finish.

M: Good carbonation and a crisp, hop textured, creamy smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel.

D: Pretty impressed with this brew, much better than the Imperial IPA I had tried earlier. Not quite the best West Coast IPA (I'll defer to Stone and Racer 5) but a darned good example and one worth trying. I'd go out of your way for this one, it's a keeper.
