3.63/5  rDev -14%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into Lost Abbey stemware. No freshness date.

A: Standard pour yields a coarse, frothy 2.5 finger white head with good retention. Beer is a semi-clear bright dark orange that reveals light sediment floating on the bottom of the brew. Lacing is web-like with good cling. Clarity needs a bit of work but everything else is a bit above average.

S: Nose is aromatic. Astringent, sappy, resiny hoppiness. Bitingly bitter with a nice liveliness. I feel like I'm walking through a pine forest. Spot on for the style.

T: Opens with some caramel and grainy brown sugar. Citrus, tree sap and piney bitterness are pervasive and the last from middle to end. No semblance of malt balance. End is a slight dry, accented spicy bitterness. Aftertaste is resiny and woody hop bitterness. As advertised.

M: Light to medium bodied and well carbonated. Rather smooth and slightly watery with ample bubbles in the mouth. Spicy, sticky, slightly abrasive, and slightly dry going down. Messy finish with a sticky aftertaste that lingers. Appropriate.

O: This is a west coast IPA in every sense of the word. Bitter, bitter, and more bitter hops all throughout. Worth trying for the hardcore hophead. Malt lovers will want to avoid at all cost!

I love a good Green Flash IPA. They're always full of big hops, and when I'm in the mood for a great IPA, I know to reach for a Green Flash. I prefer the regular to the imperial, as far as drinkability goes, and because this beer has a slightly less alcohol bite.

Poured a slightly hazy, golden yellow color with burnt brown around the edges, and a nice foamy white head that retained fairly well. Big smell of pine and hops, some lemon and grapefruit. The aroma follows through in the taste, with big, big hops, citrus, pine, some light grassiness and earth, and surprisingly, a bit of smooth malts make an appearance in the finish. Light-medium body, and very drinkable if you're in the mood for a hoppy beer.

Definitely one of my favorite IPAs, and very exemplary of the style.

Again, I tried this from a taster last night. Not my style, but I wanted to try and branch out. Much better than I thought from an IPA, but a bit too much for me.

A - Yellowish-copper body and head that dissipated rather quickly

S - Smelled very citrusy!

T - almost a spicy, citrusy taste on this one. Again, not my style, but I can see IPA folks loving this one.

O - Overall for me a bit too hoppy. Had I been into IPAs I think I would have loved this beer.

Green Flash West Coast IPA……. on tap at Pacific Standard in Brooklyn, NY

Appearance-bright vibrant orange cold, gray colored head slowly rises but falls quickly, lots of bubbles, a thick looking brew with lots of body.

Smell-Rush of fruit and pine which shows the hops are here in force. This smell is so pungent that it was really all I could get. Alcohol is there in the background but the hops are the show here.

Taste/Mouthfeel-and so it is. A rushing pine-flavored burn of the tongue that lingers throughout, smoky and bitter in the strictest sense, the burn lingers through and the alcohol doesn’t hit until the very end as it goes down with a large warming sensation.

Drinkability-depends on how much you like hops.

Overall-I’m normally a hop fan, but maybe I’m getting old. This is a crushing blow of hops and while the force is impressive I didn’t enjoy this beer nearly as much as I hoped too. Will give it another try, but disappointed for now.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pilsner glass

95 IBU's

Appearance: Hazy copper, burnt orange color. Unfiltered. Visible sediment floating around. Chunky off-white one finger head once it settles down. The head retention is strong and leaves thick lacing coating the glass. Beautiful.

Smell: The nose at first is a little closed. It opens up with time. Scents include pine, citrus, pineapple/grapefruit blend, rose petal, honey, brown sugar, and caramel. Doesn't smell too bitter.

Taste: Now this is an IPA! Very bitter with Columbus hops made most obvious due to the harsh bitterness. On the earthy side. The malt backbone there, but it is overwhelmed by the hops. Dry bitter finish. Amazing hop profile, which is comprised of Simcoe, Columbus, Centennial, and Cascade hops. The alcohol is masked nicely.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. A tad oily and pretty thick.

Ending notes: This is the pinnacle of west coast IPAs. Very nice indeed. Very bitter, but not excessive (Does too bitter even exist?). I can't wait to get this again. Makes for a great hop blast. Not for the faint-hearted. Quite enjoyable.

The West Coast IPA is pretty much my favorite style of beer. I ardently believe that the best beer is hop-forward, and doesn't take any prisoners. Let the people that don't like it drink Blue Moon or something similar.

Given that this beer is called "West Coast IPA" puts it in line with very special consideration and comparison. It's certainly very good, but one thing bothers me: no freshness date. Is my brew two weeks out or two months out or more? I'll not know. But it tastes fresh enough to I'll begin:

A: Pours into my tulip a very nice dark orange with a nice size beige head. Retention is a high point on this one.

S: The usual smells from this style abound: citrus, piney, but also some sweetness from the bready malt is evident.

T: The citrus pervaded hops control the front end, while a nice caramel malt lands in the finish line - the balance is there, considering the style, which is to say that the hops do dominate (and rightly so) but the malt is a nice feature, rather than a cameo.

M: Medium carbonation, somewhat creamy in the middle from the head, and then finish dry, as per the style.

O: Well, this is a West Coast IPA and it gets the job done, but offers few surprises at the same time. Perhaps the caramel backbone is the difference maker, and it rounds this out to be one fine brew.

Thanks to Adam@Platinum Liquor.

Burnt, largely opaque copper. Dense two-finger just barely off-white head. Drops slowly; lace clings to the glass determinedly. Cracking start.

As expected, assaults the nasal cavity with impressively fresh grapefruit and earthy pine. Slightly less prominent are orange rind, passionfruit and lemon sherbet. Fennel and bitter nettles provide a spunky finish. Malt is completely hidden, at least to this amateur.

The taste is much more tropical. Mango, pineapple, rockmelon and stonefruit in pretty equal proportions. Earthy resin is still abundant but not as forceful as in the aroma. Again, I'm sure the malt backing is there somewhere and partially responsible for the effortless balance of flavours - but I can't find it.

Carbonation is spot on and virtually undetectable, resulting in an even bitterness and medium body. Just an exhibition of balance really.

Overall, tasty as hell and massively drinkable. In a sense it's almost one-dimensional, but it's a dimension so well mastered.

Fresh on tap. Never bought this before due to lack of bottle dating. Glad to try it fresh.

A - golden hue with a small head that recedes quickly.

S - excellent smell. Hoppy citrus and tropical fruits. It begs for a sip.

T - citrus, hoppy deliciousness. Malt is well hidden in the background but has just enough presence here. Very tasty hop forward IPA. Goes down easy without destroying the palate.

M - very nice mouthfeel. Not too thick and not too thin. Nice creamy coating of the buds.

I was very pleased with this beer, even a bit surprised. Very good if you can get it fresh. It's too bad they won't date their bottles. For that reason, I'm not sure when I will have this again.

Small bits of sediment float around in its hazy copper orange body. I don't think I've had an IPA with sediment like this before. A finger and a half of off-white head leaves patches and patches of spotted lace as it sinks. All in all, a good looking IPA.

Resinous piney hops and juicy pink grapefruit that smells like it's going to pucker my lips are at the forefront, and rightfully so. A bit of lemon peel adds to its citrusy character. Bready and toasted malts can be picked out in the back but in no way compete with its fresh hoppy scent.

Sweet grapefruit comes in a flash before astringent pine and all types of citrus rhine entrench themselves in the middle of the palate, sticking around long after the finish. Bready malts come in faint doses in the finish, barely able to be detected amidst this pungent hop assault. For a second, I swear I taste a drop of caramel, but only for a second. The length of time the bitterness lingers is wonderful and that is perhaps why I percieve this as being a more bitter beer than other AIPA's I've had.

This leans more towards medium bodied with a subtle creamy feel. The incredibly dry finish, to my knowledge, is a distinguishing feature of a traditional West Coast IPA. In this case, this allows the hops to really shine in the finish and enabling them to extend their stay. The ABV is very well hidden. Although I couldn't picture myself sessioning this, it does add to its drinkability.

Solid through and through. For me this comes off as a well done, traditional AIPA. With that said, nothing really blew me away. If this is what a West Coast IPA should taste like, I'm glad I had this for I will use it as a point of comparison in the future. This is not my favorite IPA but it's well worth a try.

A- a ruddy, but bright golden brown. small maybe 1/4in head.

S- citrus on the nose

T- hoppy without being overwhelming. Can really taste the citrus. So much so that it borders in sour, but doesn't go all the way there.

M- stays hoppy

O- this is one of my favorite American IPAs. It epitomizes the style and doesn't go overboard on the hops like so many IPAs do now. It's nice to find this on tap a few places in Tokyo. You can't go wrong with this IPA.

S: delightful grapefruit/orange peel, fresh pine

T: sweet fresh citrus front, earthy inviting middle, sticky long pine bitter finish (great balance!)

M: med body, sticky/oily finish

O: Glad I took a chance on a brewery I have seen on the shelves for years and for whatever reason dismissed. My beerguy said "great American IPA" and he was right!
The ABV is well hidden, can be a sipper or dare I say, perhaps a fine session beer for a wild Summer party.

GREAT BEER, CHECK IT OUT!

Bottle Served at 6-and-Save and poured into a classic tulip.

A: pours a hazy orange color with a moderate white head that dissipated quickly. 4.0

S: I love IPA. Smells like Crack. Big nose of grapefruit and hops. Oh boy. 4.5

T: follows the nose. Big hop bitterness and grapefruit bite, balanced out by a sufficient malt sweetness in the background. The hops shine here. Lots and lots of glorious, bitter, grapefruit, pungent hops. Simple, yet effective. 4.5

M: this beer finishes dry and sticky, coating the tongue with an abundance of dry sour-grapefruit sweetness. Proper carvbonation really makes this a lively experience in the mouth. 4.5

D: very high. Could drink this all day long. I love IPA. 5.0

12oz bottle with no bottled on or freshness date, poured into Maudite stemmed glass, reviewed on 4/28/11

A: Pours a slightly hazy copper color with light tan head. A very careful pour to avoid pouring in the ample yeast sediment in the bottom of the bottle into my glass. Despite the careful pour and leaving a couple ounces of beer in the bottle there are still some particles floating around.

S: Awesome big cirtus hop aroma, really sweet, fruity and hop forward not letting much malt or alcohol come through. Great aroma for an IPA. As it warms up the malts and alcohol are able to break through the wall of hops a bit more.

T: Hops at first, but not nearly as hoppy as the aroma, I taste a variety of citrus, herbal and fruity hops on top of a a sweet malt backbone with some smoky / burnt notes at the end. Nice and bitter but it has the malts necessary to back it up.

M: Nice medium body with moderate carbonation. Bittersweet juicy resinous feel.

O: As the name insinuates, this is a good example of a west coast IPA. Dangerously drinkable for 7.3% ABV, the alcohol is well hidden beneath the malt and bouquet of hops.

12oz. bottle poured into a tulip. No freshness info. Pours a cloudy orange with two fingers of frothy foam and not a lot of carbonation. Nice lacing. Nose is quite sweet but still with a nice balance between a light malt and crisp, lively hops. Aromas of mango and orange. Full bodied and rich mouthfeel, but not syrupy. Carbo is too low. Super bitter palate! The fairly rich malt tries to cut the hopiness but, happily, to little or no avail. You can count all 95 IBUs in this one! Mostly grapefruit and pine flavors but the malt does tease out some lighter lemon zest and mango notes. It's been a while since I've had this and I don't remember liking this much but I will make a point to not go so long without having it again.

12oz Bottle

Appearance - Clear amber colour with a large size frothy beige coloured head. There is an above average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fairly good lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - malts, caramel, hops, grapefruits, oranges, pine

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and the beer a full bodied sweet hoppy taste. I can taste hops mixed with a caramel sweetness and grapefruit and oranges. There are also some notes of pine and the beer has a long lingering hop bitterness.

Overall - This is a very well balanced beer that offers something for all the fans of IPAs. It has a nice fruity/juicy aspect but also a dry/pine flavour. I enjoyed it more on tap, but from the bottle was very tasty too.

Served from bottle into a Stone nonic. Poured a slightly hazy orange with a one and a half finger bone white head that subsided to one finger very slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, pine resin, and pine hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, citrus, pine, citrus hop, and pine hop. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty tasty brew. The flavor on this one was very hop forward and it lets you know that even upon first smelling it. The citrus aspect in the flavor is a nice touch as compared to being pine overload. This is definitely worth trying if you can find it on the shelves around you and you haven't before.

On tap at Capital Ale House in Glen Allen, VA - pint

Pours a nice amber with an amazing head.. did not want to go anywhere. Awesome lacing and perfect carb. Smells of big fruity hops but not in your face. Tastes like a damn near perfect IPA. Good balance but mostly bitter.

Overall it's a great IPA. Probably a bit overpriced but I'd take another. :)

Appearance - hazy deep coper, min carbonation levels, has a off-white head about 2 fingers, very good lasting to the head and some nice lacing.

Smell - great smelling beer, tremendous combination of pine and citrus, some very good earthy tones. i can also pick up on a hint or caramel.

Taste - the flash is back! what a fantastic tasting beer, pine comes through right away, the bitterness kicks in about 3 seconds after with some good citrus backing. there is a faint taste of caramel at the start, but nothing dominant.

Mouthfeel - very good levels of volume added, strong and full in the mouth, the bitterness is a little less but just as strong. the pine and citrus is well balanced.

Overall - nice little trade with spinrsx, this was a fantastic beer! i will miss the flash in canada, so good!

A- Pours a slightly hazy copperish amber. Head sticks at half a finger.
S- Smell is grapefruity with a touch of pine, and enough biscuit-esque malt aromas.
T- More balanced than I noticed. Intially it's biscuity, with some sweetness up front. Snap of grapefruity and slightly piney hops that power through the finish.
M- I found it a bit light on the body, with smooth, airy carbonation.
O- A good IPA. I'm not convinced one of the top few IPA's out there, but it is still tasty enough for me to recommend it.

Poured into a Victory Pint Glass

A- Deep golden bronze color with orange hues. Quite hazy, with a thick one-finger seafoam-like head. Excellent retention- thickest foamly lace I've ever noted.

S- Nice hoppy notes of citrus, light pine, grapefruit, bread- and faint nip of toffee.

T- Full smack of hops- a bitter edge that wraps around the middle of the tongue from front to finish. Much of the hop characters in the smell don't present themselves in the taste, as the bitter edge is overpowering.

M- Full body, light fizz.

O- Wow, this brew is an enigma to me. Heard wonderful things about it, and I love IPAs- but there was something about the fullness of the bitter edge here that just took away from all of the other attributes I expect in this style. Did I get a bad bottle? Who knows, but I did find myself saying "wow" after each sip- more so in disappointment.

Special thanks to beerman207 for the hook up on this one. Review is from notes taken on 4/22/2011 and poured from the bottle to a pint glass.

Appearance: Pour is the standard coppery orange, and it starts with a full 1 and 1/2 off-white head that becomes pockmarked and a little rocky as it slowly fades to a full and uneven cap with a couple of huge foamy patches that look thick and chewy; body is a little hazy, but it still shows pretty solid carbonation bubbling up throughout; the head leaves a spotty web of dry, sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell: Loaded with hops, this beer smells strongly of orange and possibly pineapple citrus; there is a bit of a spicy bite to the scent as well; smell is quite robust.

Taste: Yep, it's a west coast IPA... Tons of hops, and they really match the nose with the aspects of citrus, although I have to admit that it comes across a little more astringently bitter than I thought it may (I kind of expected a slightly sweeter and juicy hop presence, but this sucker is all bitter and is more like orange peel); slight presence of alcohol in the aftertaste blends with a faint presence of a sweet malt bill that makes a feeble attempt at balancing out the 95 IBUs.

Mouthfeel: Body is of medium weight and the carbonation is potent, but still smooth in the mouth; a thick and semi-dry coating covers the entire palate; the coating becomes cottony dry by the end, and it really holds the strong bitterness; belly is left a little warm from the acidity and ABV.

Overall: The crazy Californians have done it again with this offering. It's a super good IPA and definitely exhibits what the region does, and does well; ultimately, I prefer something with a little bit more of a malt balance and sweeter/juicier hop-like flavors, but this one is solid no matter how you look at it. This would be a great summer beer that would be refreshing with its bitterness.

With one of the best sustaining heads that I have ever seen on a bottled IPA, I have to give this a 5 for appearance. The 1 finger head lasts the entire drink. Excellent lacing too.

Smells of pacific pine hops along with some skunky herb are the primary scents. Some citrus creeps in to really balance the smell.

Wow, plenty of grass and pine sap bitterness. Some lemon and grapefruit combine with the pine-ness. The malt backbone is not very strong but it is the way I like it in an IPA. Overall it is a very bitter ale.

A solid feel in the mouth with a good deal of drying.

I would agree with the hype of this beer, it is really good. Solid marks from me.

Sampled at my bro's house who has WC frequently on tap in his kegerator...and for good reason.

A: Pours a darker pale color. A burnt caramel color if you will. Almost orange-ish even. Very clear, bubbling away. Mine had little to almost no head - just some choppy bubbles. Go figure. Lingering lace.

S: Intense lemon zest and citrus aromas all the way. Like Spring time in the orchards. Faint hints of caramel malt once the brew settles out a bit.

T: Sweet candied citrus fruits, sticky greens and pine resin. Outstanding hop zing on the palate that puckers out leaving you dry and thirsty for another sip. Slight caramel and malt components that hold the brew together. ABV is a creeper on this one.

M: I would say moderate overall. A good balance of creamy deliciousness that is slightly sticky on the tongue but finishes dry and crisp.

D: So good. Big hop profile but well balanced As I mentioned before the ABV is a creeper here. I probably should try to practice better restraint when at my brothers house.

I must say some super fresh West Coast is pretty unparralleled. A quintessential hop forward West Coast style IPA. Pretty much put GreenFlash on the map. One of my top 5 IPA's for sure.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.

The color of this one is a very bright orange color with a nice inch and a half of foam that receded pretty fast and left some nice lacing on the sides of the glass.

The smell of this one is a grassy grapefruit smell with a dash of pine.

The taste of this one is pretty hop forward with a great hop bitterness followed by the citrus and grass that was present in the nose. It was perfectly bitter in my opinion and a perfect hop fix for me.

The mouthfeel of this one was pretty carbonated and bubbly with a dryish feel.

Overall this IPA was a good one and to me it falls in the category of nice and bitter versus the crisp and refreshing less bitter IPA selections.

App: A very clear, clean and crisp looking with orange hue poured initially to approx. 2 fingers of foamy white head which receeded quickly leaving some individual spots of lace.

Smell: Very noticeable citrus and hops, with a little cinnamon.

Taste: The hops punch you in the throat like a karate black belt, and the taste of grapefruit stays on the pallet for a while.

MF: Very crisp, very smooth.

OA: Very, very nice brew.
