Pours a golden orange with a big fluffy white head. Good retention. Small amount of carbonation rising.

Aroma of grapefruite and hops. Quite pleasant.

Taste is of grapefruit and a nice malty backbone. Piney hops.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Dry. Cleansing.

Overall, a good beer. Nicely drinkable, even with the ABV.

Note: This is a review of the new Double IPA. Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass.

This is a fantastic IIPA. While I'm somewhat disappointed Green Flash decided to reformulate the original product, I can honestly say the replacement is an improvement nevertheless.

Bought at single at Little's Wine and Liquor. Poured into a pint. Paired with pretzels and humus.

A&S: Lively transparent amber colored beer. Off white head has good retention and leaves some lacing on the glass. Aroma is pretty pungent and include dank spicy hops along with some grapefruit citrus, but also has a classic sweet sugar tone.

T&M: Alcohol is present at a great level, there but not the main component. Hop tone is very similar to the aroma. Good bitterness profile in the finish, bitter but not bruising. Medium body, medium carbonation. Very drinkable.

Overall: Very solid IPA, in my opinion maybe a little over ranked but not by much. Good price point for the quality.
