Green Flash West Coast IPA pours a clear dark golden color, with a long lasting, and lacing head. There is a nice dry floral, hoppy aroma. The taste has a nice subtle hoppy flavor, nice and dry. Easy to drink, flavors are full, but the floral flavors are not overwhelming. Overall a very nice good flavored and enjoyable IPA.

A: Deep amber in color and VERY murky/hazey. Can't see through it at all. Very little carbonation and a solid 1 finger of fluffy off white head.

S: Wow, what a blend of pine and citrus. Hops, hops, hops! This has a fantastic aroma, very complex and inviting.

T: Good flavor. Heavy on the grapefruit and bitterness with a dry finish. There is a touch of malt sweetness in the beginning but it quickly dissipates. Did I mention the bitterness??

M: Smooth finish. Not to heavy but not light either. Well balanced and feels "right".

O: Real bitter. A true hop bomb for sure and may turn some people off because of its intensity. Nice beer but certainly not as sessionable as others.

Edit: I'm having this again and rereading my review. I think I was hard on this beer and am bumping some ratings up because this is a world class beer. Green Flash has become one of my favorite breweries.
