12oz bottle from Bruisin Ales (Asheville, NC). 2.00. Served in a Southern Tier snifter. 

Pours orange amber with 3 fingers foamy off-white head that leaves big beautiful sheets of pale lacing. 

Smells of pine, grapefruit, sweet biscuits. 

Taste follows the nose pretty well. Bursts of piney & citrisy hops. But not too much. 

Rather light but a little resinous. Mildly carbonated. 

I can see why this gets some props. It's a well done IPA. Quite drinkable. I'd certainly have it again if given the chance.

Green Flash West Coast I.P.A. is a deliciously hoppy IPA that borders on a DIPA. The strong amarillo hops are balanced by and awesome malty base.

A: Cloudy orange colour and an excellent 4 cm head that lasts very well. 4.5

S: Hops. Grassy, citrus amarillo hops. 4.5

T: Malty with a strong grassy hop flavour. Great balance between malt and hops, sweet and dry. Lovely malt base. 4.5

M: Pretty thick with some foaminess. 4

O: 4.5
