Nice to stumble upon this beaut. Pours a wonderful two finger thick off white head, and has an amber colored body with lots of haze.

The aroma is piny and arid, along with some toffee sweetness.

The taste is hoppy with lemon metallic flavors, and good caramel backbone.

Feels clean and bubbly. Refreshing and oily. Altogether great.

this my "executioner" beer, if I only had one beer to choose I would choose this one! It is a nice hoppy beer and is just strong enough for my taste. Where I live it comes in four packs.
I would highly recommend this beer and I must say that it has become, along with a few from Stone, my favorite beverage!

This was my first sampling of a Green Flash beer, and I have to say it has set a good precedent, as I will happily try this again! The four pack I bought lasted me all of three hours, something which tends to speak highly of a beer! Great job, and I'll certainly be trying this again!

Finally some Green Flash in VT! Yeahhhh!!

Pours a cloudy amber with a nice two-finger head into my glass. I like it so far.

Extravagantly hopped but for some reason, I don't detect much in the aroma.

Citrus and mint notes from the hops mingle with dry, somewhat chewy malt to create something that I would say is most certainly West Coast.

It has a bold hop punch that lingers in the back of the mouth and warms the throat going down.

Well, other than the aroma (I'm pretty sure that I don't have a head cold and it was poured into a glass), this is an excellent IPA for the hop lovers out there. Not as aggressively hopped as I thought.
