A - Nice murky dark amber colour. Cloudy, with a slightly off white head

S - Very enjoyable. As expected, a lot of hops. Pine and citrus.

T - Good. Bold, bitter hops up front that follow the nose. Almost too dry for my taste. A very small amount of sweetness up front. A bready malt taste appears in the aftertaste alongside the bitterness.

M - OK. Medium bodied, relatively low carbonation

O - A bitter, dry IPA. Tastes good and I like the boldness of the flavour, but just a little too dry to make me want another.

Green Flash can be a diamond in the ruff depending on what bar you are in or what liquor store you are in here in SD. I had this straight from the bottle, strong IPA taste and kind of intense after flavour. Not a bad IPA but wouldnt get it if it were sitting beside other SD craft beers.
